A year or so later, Marcus gets into the band, and starts his own collection by picking up the record release version of Grim. What the hell? What's this? Since it's not listed on the Triple B discography page, I didn't even know this existed. It was kind of a dick move for him to pick up this record before I did, but record collecting is a cut throat hobby. Don't be fooled into believing that any of us are friends. All we do is make the game more difficult for each other.
A few months later, I took the opportunity to score my copy from FNI guitarist, Ryan Groat, through eBay.
The cover for Grim, with the four green heads, isn't any better than the one for Gods & Devils. The record release cover isn't too bad though, limiting it to just one green head.
The back cover includes the date of the record release show.
Hand numbered and limited to 50.
After acquiring this record release pressing, I was feeling pretty good about my collection. I knew that I was missing the black first press of Gods & Devils, but I thought I had everything else. I laid them all out for a photo, and realized that I'm also missing the orange vinyl pressing of Grim. Damn. So close. Come on...anyone want to help out an old friend?
