This record has the distinction of not only being Gang Green’s debut record, but also it was the first release on the now infamous Taang! Records. Taang was started by a fellow named Curtis, who was a big record collector back in the early days of punk. It was obvious that he was a vinyl collector from the start of the label as evidenced by the many releases that came on different colors of vinyl in limited editions.
The record has three distinct variations and they are as follows…
The first pressing on black vinyl. There was 2000 of these pressed.
There was 1000 released later as a limited edition on green vinyl with a green sleeve. Note the cover photo is different as well.
There was 100 made on clear vinyl with an acetate sleeve. The sleeve is the front only. The record was numbered with a stamp on each label.
The test pressing came in a photocopied sleeve. Note the info hand-written on the inner sleeve regarding the price, etc.
So there you have the many flavors of the Gang Green 7″. While the vinyl has been out of print for close to two decades, the music is still available on the Preschool CD on Taang! Records.
