Building / Up Front split 7 inch

Those who check my Instagram (@willem.rwhaf) already know what this is about. It’s about the Building / Up Front split 7 inch. The coloured versions of this release have lots of colour variation that’s for sure. But also lots of uncertainty exists about what actually exists and how many actually are pressed by Sober Mind Records. But that is the general law when you collect rare 90’s vinyl. It’s keeps it interesting and always surprising.

Always difficult too, when a split release has two front covers or at least no obvious distinction between the two. Although this one says “split 7 inch” beneath the Building logo, so this little detail makes it clear. Although I have a tendency to see the Up Front side as front cover because it’s actually more recognisable what is pictured than the blur of the Building side.

My copies are both translucent but differ from each other, one is clear pink and the other is clear purple. It only becomes clear that they differ when they are put next to each other.

Please check @boogie8700 on Instagram also, he got pressing info from the label, first hand after the release show, in 1998. This is most likely the closest we can get to the truth. There are opaque blue, opaque grey and clear copies. As we can see in his history. But also the limited cover, inspired from the Judge “New York Crew” 7 inch on Schism Records.
