Blink-182 – Enema Of The State (1st Press, Universal pressing)

Posted: November 19, 2010 in Vinyl

This is the Universal Records press of Enema Of The State. In my mind this press is the first press, well because it came out first, well ahead of the Mightier Than Sword Records (MTS) pressing, a label which licensed the album from Universal in order to release it on vinyl. There are 2,000 copies of the Universal pressing, all on white vinyl.

There are subtle difference between this Universal pressing and MTS. Aside from the color, the cover art features a parental advisory sticker on it, whereas the MTS pressing does not have one on the jacket itself but on the outer poly sleeve that each record was originally shipped in. The center labels of each pressing are also different from each other. The inserts are different as well, with the Universal pressing printed on glossy paper and the MTS pressing printed with a matte finish. The gatefold artwork is the same between both pressings.
