Item Description

Up for auction is a rare Test Pressing for the upcoming Amphetamine Reptile reissue of the "Melvins Gluey Porch Treatments" LP. It's easy enough to find the track listings elsewhere online, so I won't get bogged down with an endlessly long listing with that.
The record up for auction is Test Pressing # 1 of 5. The vinyl is in basic black vinyl & is marked "TEST PRESS 1/5" & comes in a white inner sleeve. The outer sleeve itself features HAZE XXL's far out take on the artwork from the original Alchemy Records release in 1987. The sleeve was entirely assembled by HAZE & has a hand-printed 3-color linocut with torn edges mounted to a thick, tan cardstock jacket. The back has a second 1-color linocut with pencil details drawn on the figures. The rest of the back all stamped by hand & has the "GLUEY PORCH TREATMENTS T/P 1/5" written in black Sharpie & is signed by HAZE XXL in silver. Back of the sleeve has a slight ding on the lower left corner that's not noticeable from the front. This auction is coming directly from AmRep & the ding is a known mark upon it's original sale.
There's a bonus with this auction. You also get the original mailer from Pirates Press when the test pressings were sent to AmRep HQ. It is a mailer & reflects the fact that it's been through the postal system with an assortment of labels, stickers, writing, tape scuffs & creases. We'll even include the original generic Pirates Press "Test Pressings" sleeve with customer order info sticker on the back while were at it.
