Yesterday I literally received a white whale, Good Riddance’ Operation Phoenix on virgin white vinyl. I’ve been trying to get this record for a decent price for quite some time now. Recently it went up on Discogs and I didn’t hesitate a second to pull the trigger.
It’s one of Good Riddance’ as well as Fat Wreck Chords’ classic records. It was released back in 1999 and there is absolutely no information available how many of these were pressed. It is believed that there are 176 copies out there, but that is really just a rumor. Fact is these very rarely pop up, so no matter how many there really are, you have to be damn lucky, right place right time, to get one. This time it seems, it was my turn.
