Double Vision

Despite the fact that I was curious about these records and wanted to check them out, I had some hesitation in buying these. That hesitation led to not having the most limited colour of these represses. But I don’t care since these aren’t that desired by collectors anyway. Double that with the fact that the limited colours were splatter vinyl, which I don’t like anyway. These came out nice on the lesser limited colours.

First is the repress of the Equal Vision classic, “Attaining The Supreme” by Shelter. I must say that this record has a clear message if not the clearest Shelter message I have heard so far. With the line “We found a better way”, they speak out against society and try to take distance from it. And with “In Praise Of Others”, Ray Cappo criticises the scene he was in for years. Probably one of the last good Shelter albums before they started to sound more popular. Originally released in the year 1993 and now repressed on white vinyl and splatter vinyl. Krishna Core is still alive as they played recently and will play again soon.

The other record I got was also released through Equal Vision Record later in the nineties. I got to know the band from their split with Spirit Of Youth on Good Life Recordings. I must say that this record sounds quite average, had expected better. Cover is embossed and has got gloss on the embossed letters, impossible to photograph with the shrink wrap still attached.
