Verbal Assault 'Learn' on Red

I don't even know how long I've owned a copy of 'Learn' by Verbal Assault. I think I may have bought it on about 1997/8, based on a vague memory of where I lived when I got it in the mail. But I'm not sure. Anyway, the point is that I owned it for many years and never known it existed on anything other than black vinyl, until some point in the last couple of years, when I saw one for sale on red vinyl. I didn't win that copy, but I added it to my want list, and recently I picked one up. Stoked.

Not sure if this is first press or a later press, but there are a couple of subtle differences between this one and the black one I have. First, the black copy has a more glossy sleeve. Second, on the sleeve of the red one, it says 'Jacket made in Canada' on the back of the sleeve, but not on the red one. All this tells me is that the two versions were pressed at different times. But how far apart, and which was first and which is rarest? If anyone knows, please get in touch. Thanks!

Looks great. Just recently got their Tiny Giants 7" on red vinyl, a score at £3

Not really...it is more a loose list of stuff that I would like to add to the collection and it changes everytime that I log into eBay.

It seems to change every time you do a blog post and also every time someone else does too!
