Bush – Sixteen Stone (1st U.S. Press & 20th Anniversary Pressing)

Posted: September 12, 2010 in Vinyl

This  is Bush’s debut album, Sixteen Stone. There were two pressings of this that I know of. There was the U.S. pressing and also a German pressing. The German pressing was on white vinyl, and I’m not sure how many were pressed. The entire U.S. pressing is on black vinyl, and again I’m not sure how many were pressed. There may also be a UK pressing since the band is from London.

To coincide with the album’s 20th Anniversary, Bush did their own re-press of Sixteen Stone via Zuma Rock Records/Round Hill Music, which is the third overall pressing of the record. This edition/version/pressing comes with exclusive alternate artwork, and is the first pressing done as a double LP and first in a gatefold jacket.

The 20th Anniversary edition is also re-mastered, but not specifically for vinyl. The entire album went through a re-mastering, so every format it was released on will be the same, new re-master. the record was pressed on 180 gram clear vinyl, and pressing info has never been released. This edition/pressing also comes with exclusive, never before seen photos of the band during the Sixteen Stone era, which are printed on all four sides (1 sleeve for each of the 2 records comes out to 4 sides) the printed dust sleeves.
