This is Tuesday’s only full length release, Freewheelin. It was released by Asian Man Records and was limited to 2,000 copies on black vinyl for the first pressing. Tuesday is Dan Andriano’s band prior to joining Alkaline Trio.

In 2016 Asian Man Records re-pressed Freewheelin’, this time on colored vinyl. The second pressing was done on two different colors and has new alternate artwork. There were 100 copies pressed on purple/blue and 300 copies on red/blue. Both variants are a half/half split, with the split done diagonally. The blue in the red/blue looks more black or deep purple (not the band) than blue. Odds are the two colors blended together a bit at the plant. The blue in the purple/blue matches the album art pretty close. The alternate artwork is inspired by the original and also another album/single altogether. If you’re a fan of 80s synth pop you might recognize this new, alternate artwork for Freewheelin’.

There was a single released by Kraftwerk in 1983 called “Tour De France” which first used the artwork found on this second pressing of Tuesday’s Freewheelin’. Everything is exactly the same except the artist and title are changed between them.

If there is one thing about Asian Man to love other than the music they churn out it’s their prices. Mike is charging $12 for this re-press and didn’t do a pre-order for them. He just announced the pressing on social media completely out of the blue and orders started shipping almost immediately. Admittedly I slept too long on buying a copy and missed out on the purple/blue for a stupid reason; I wasn’t sure if the cover art was actually changed or not. So rather than waste money I decided to wait and see pics of what people ended up getting in the mail to verify the artwork change. In hindsight I could’ve simply emailed Mike to verify, but you know what they say about hindsight.
