Why isn't it cold yet?

So Rich over at Speedowax let me know that he was putting out some more limited versions of the Splitting Headache double 7". This time he was going to do them on different color sleeves, red and pink. Up top is the copy with the red sleeve numbered out of 50. Below that is the pink cover also numbered out of 50.

Rich also included an extra pink sleeve that is number negative out of 5. I'm not sure what it completely means but I remember him saying it had to do with getting both the red cover and pink cover.

So one thing I was looking for on Record Store Day was the special AC/DC 7". They took the live recordings of "Shoot to Thrill" and "War Machine" for the upcoming River Plate DVD/Blu-Ray release and put them on the A and B side of this 7", just like an old school 45 rpm single. The recordings were part of three shows in Argentina back in 2009 using 32 HD Cameras. You know big budget style. As for the 7", Columbia pressed 5,000 of these, so it was not a problem getting one on eBay shortly after RSD.

So I'm not too sure where I got this one from but I'm assuming it was eBay. This was the last copy of The Effort's first 7" that I was missing. This is the most common version from the first press on Gold out of 200. There's too many versions of this record. I feel like it was trying to compete with the insane amount of versions of Have Heart's Demo.

So I won a three tape lot from a guy on eBay up in the Northwest. They were all demoes of local bands up there. I was really just looking to grab these two. This is Not Sorry's Demo from 2009 and Gone But Not Forgetten's Demo from 2008. I mainly wanted the Not Sorry Demo, but the GBNF was also another tape want for me. I feel like it's even harder to find copies of band's demo tapes than it is their rarer records. People just don't trade, sell or take care of tapes like they do records. The Not Sorry tape with the red insert is out of 50 and the GBNF tape is out of 300. The GBNF tape was one of the first React! releases. I think this still came out after Get the Most's Core Values on React!.

Here we have a record I just thought would be nice to have a copy of. This is Hatebreed's Under the Knife 7". I believe this was released before Satisfaction and the black vinyl is not rare at all, 6,000 copies. However it is from the well known Smorgasbord Records.

In continuing to get Iron Boots records I picked up my first copy of Weight of World. This copy on black put out by Boredom Kills Records is out of 900.

So I picked this one up with the previous Iron Boots record. This is a copy of Easy Green on you got it, Green. This was part of the second press from Grave Mistake Records out of 450.

I've been wanting this one for a while. This is a copy of New Found Glory's Tip of the Iceberg with a special pre-order sleeve/vinyl color. The sleeve is a rip of the Gorilla Biscuits s/t 7" if you didn't already know. The vinyl color I'm assuming was Banana Yellow for a reason. This is out of 500. They also made a Judge rip shirt, I wish I had that as well.

If I remember correctly the GBNF tape dropped between the Mindset - Realpower 7" and the ON 12". It was akward since only a few weeks later it got pressed on vinyl.
