4 months in the pending phase, but finally a result is there. I’m talking about this deal I did with an American dude who had remarkably much and rare records from the label 1917 in his sell- list. Told you already that I confined myself more or less to organized collecting. And that records from 1917 are on my wantlist now. So you understand what happened.
The parcel was uniquely well packaged and they arrived all in splendid condition and unbelievably fast. This dude is now on my good traders list. And this is my way to thank him for his patience, quality and cares.
I will start immediately with a record that is quite catchy and mysterious, therefore interesting to me. It is the record “Turn Into Stone” from the band ATTITUDE (rip). The music on this 7″ sounds kinda different than full length called “We All Go Down Together”. They mix catchy popular rock sounds with the more heavy hardcore genre.
The first thing that struck me was that I thought I’d see the unknown rarest(?) colorway of this record. Let me explain. The pressing info on the 1917 discography page is this:
I had obtained the /620 version of this record through mailorder from two different distro’s. And this color seems like maroon to me, because it is the same color like the maroon version of the War Hungry “Return To Earth” 7″.
I thought this was the most common version since it was through a distro and since I had two of these.
Then I saw in the sell-list of this collector that he had the Confetti and a Burgundy version. So I thought I filled in the two empty lines of the pressing info.
But to my surprise when the records came in yesterday I saw that I got the confetti indeed and that I got another maroon one, instead of Burgundy. BUT actually the dude is right since this maroon colorway is called Burgundy by 1917 Records. The proof of this is another story.
SO my quest for filling in the lines of the pressing info is not over yet, but I will keep on searching.
I tried to look for proof on the Wikipedia site and Burgundy is indeed another color but again the color called VIVID BURGUNDY is indeed much like the color the first record above.
I’m quite glad I have two different colors now…
In the future I will be publishing my 1917 records from time to time, so anyone interested look for post starting like this: ‘1917 Records #’ or just pick 1917 releases from the ‘label’ list.
