Winds Of Friends Press

About a month ago, I got a note on Instagram from Marko (@MKJNS69). I don't know Marko, but he'd posted a picture of the blue obi strip pressing of the REACT! comp, Winds Of Change, and I commented that I needed one. Weeks had passed, and I was surprised to hear from him, giving me a heads up that one was available on discogs. Record collector brotherhood.

I jumped over to discogs to check it out, expecting that it would be listed with ridiculous price tag. Much to my surprise it was available for only $5.99. Even with my obsession in collecting Metal records, the price was too good to pass up, and I was glad to grab this copy.

The blue obi pressing was only made available to the bands, and was limited to 100. I'm not sure what the distribution was for these...did each band get 15, and REACT! got the remainder? I don't know. What I do know is that the different colored strip was a cool touch. So cool in fact, that this is the only comp in Hardcore history that I've bothered to collect all the different pressings of. REACT! Records for the win.

Since this blue obi pressing completes the set, it was obviously time to get a picture of them all.

What a great buy! Definitely worth the $5.99.

Yep, each band got 15 copies and I kept the rest!
