I was planning on buying this record since I saw the awesome vinyl and cover pictures of this release appearing online. The grey coloured version was fitting the cover perfectly I noticed, so I was going to go for that one. And the price was approximately 10 euro less than the rarest colour, at least in the European distro’s I visit. I was kind of shocked when I had seen that they make the rarer colour more expensive from the start.
Although I do understand the mechanism behind it; distro’s just seem to adapt to the resell mechanism that has ruled the past decades. While people who just want a copy of each colour to hold on to, are affected now also.
So I let this rest for a few months and moved on. But then when I was browsing through the online Good Life distro I saw the record for sale again, added it to the basket and checked out. Despite my earlier doubt about the higher price.

The intro and way of singing is what I like about it. The vinyl is nice and thick, colour looks great also. Good addition to the collection.
