Saw a version of this that has a "colored version" sticker and states only Universal, not Superior Viaduct on the back. Does anyone have any information on this record?

Sound is fine on these LPs... Superior Viaduct does a great job. Too bad they issued this so-so limited (1000ex) red+7" "speculator" edition !

My favorite album of all time, from any artist. Maybe we will see it on wax someday...

I have a sealed '99 cd release.
Spine #B000006802
I've had this sealed copy a long time.
I also have a mint opened B000006802 release.
Additionally I have two original '94: 9 45757-2 releases that I bought back then.
They both have general wear etc.
Happy to chat about them all.
I also have the small paper booklet that American Recordings put out with the yarn through the hole punches. Not easy to find.
Jazz drummer / Chicago / I still play along with this record everyday. Swings so hard.

I've been waiting 20 years for a vinyl release of this. (JK, but seriously though.)

Really wish there was an LP copy of this album, that would be so awesome.

This was originally withdrawn from sale (along with Smile From The Streets You Hold) because John Frusciante thought it was way below standard, and released it at the time only to buy drugs with... according to a magazine interview I read, anyhow!
Plus I asked him myself when I met him at The Borderline club in London 2001. He was supposedly sober then, but he was waaay out of his skull! =O)

This is by far my favourite album. Unpolished, raw, badly recorded, sloppy, yet the most emotive performances and song writing I've ever witnessed. One of those albums that I wouldn't change a single note.
