Agnostic Front: Live at CBGB's: Red, White and Blue Striped Vinyl Repress

This is one of the last Agnostic Front records that I need.  It has come up a good handful of times on eBay and I just never got it for the right price.  It seemed that it was always a little out of reach.  I figured that one day a copy would show up locally or on eBay for a good price and I could finally add it to my collection. 

Well, even better! Bridge 9 went ahead and repressed this on an amazing handful of color combinations. This one is, by far my favorite. Red, White and Blue striped vinyl along with the matching cover and the iconic red laced boots logo.  This is the best presentation I could have imagined for this release.  

Baroness: Yellow and Green Deluxe Double LP housed in Book and Standard Edition

Every Baroness record that I have had the privilege of owning has been a true work of all, all around.  The artwork is truly stellar and the incorporation of the lyric inserts and vinyl color are always perfect compliments that create a stunning package. Check out the Blue and Red records as well as the split with Unpersons.

With this release; Yellow and Green, they have gone above and beyond in every sense.  They have released a good handful of color combinations in both deluxe and standard version. The deluxe version is housed in a hardcover book format that has 45 pages inside that include artwork and lyrics. I have purchased 2 copies of the Deluxe version on pre-order, one with green and one yellow vinyl.  Also, I picked up a copy of the standard edition with green and yellow vinyl.

The deluxe edition spines are massive! The top is the standard edition which is in a large gatefold cover

Sleep: Domesmoker Re-release on Southern Lord - Hologram on Green and Black!

Finally, Dopesmoker has finally been reprinted and by no better label than Southern Lord!  

They really did this packaging justice.  They first 2000 copies (all 1000 picture discs and the rest on green and black vinyl) with holofoil covers!  These are very heavy weight covers that are printed all around, including the inside of the sleeve.  Dual heavy vinyl on green or black and each comes with a small poster. This has been remastered again, since the Tee Pee release and it quite a different sound than I am used to for this record.  I picked up the pre-order package and got the holofoil covers, a larger poster, t shirt and a few copies of the record.

Dropkick Murphy's: Live at Fenway Park - Baseball Picture Disc

Limited to 1000 copies, this is a pretty sweet baseball themed Dropkick Murphy's 7" Live at Fenway Park with the songs Sunday Hardcore Matinee and Broken Hymns.

Candiria: Toying With Insanities Vol 2 (Red splatter and White split vinyl) Vol 3 (Yellow/full color splatter) and Kiss the Lie (Black & white swirl)

I found a seller on eBay that so happened to be selling off a few different Candiria records that I had been looking for.  Each time they sold individually, they were just a bit out of my range.  I got all 3 of these, cheaper than I expected and with shipping combined.  They are all excellent looking releases.

Toying with Insanities Volume 3 on Yellow transparent vinyl with full color splatter

Kiss the Lie on black and white splatter vinyl

Pulling Teeth: Paranoid Illusions/Delusions Hologram with Blue Vinyl - Out of 100

I stumbled across another copy of this, but on blue vinyl this time.  The copy that I have is on the red splatter and I was pretty content with it, until I found this one locally.  The design of this record still amazes me. The amount of time and energy that went into printing this will have this be one of my favorites for a long time to come.
