If It's Here When We Get Back, I'll Take One

Another record from my eBay shopping spree. This one is the final chapter for One Up...a two song 7 inch. I remember seeing this for sale when Rob and I went to Posi Numbers in 2005. It was the second day of the fest, and I had already dropped a large amount of cash on records, so I didn't pick it up. Fast forward three years, and I still hadn't heard this record yet. I love One Up, so I'm not sure why I sat on this for so long. The band had an amazing progression, and because they would cover a Turning Point song when they played live, I suppose I would use that band as a fair comparison. The band started out with some pretty raw Youth Crew hardcore, and slowly evolved into something much more polished, without losing any of the passion or urgency that made them great. This last record is a testament to that, with one fantastic original song, and a cover of If It's Here When We Get Back It's Ours by Texas is the Reason. It is so good that I would prefer it over the original version. This copy of The Single is pressed on green vinyl. There is another pressing on blue, but I have no idea how many were pressed of each.
