Vinnie Caruana’s debut solo release, an EP entitled City By The Sea was released by a handful of labels. I Surrender Records handled the digital and CD versions and Run For Cover Records (RFC) handled the vinyl version in the U.S. while Xtra Mile handled all European aspects of the release. As expected there was a delay with the records from RFC, which has become something you can set your watch to. The length of the delay this go around was almost 3 months.

There are several variants for the record, three colors for the U.S. pressing and one color for the European pressing. RFC pressed 300 copies on gold vinyl, 300 copies on black featuring hand numbering and blank center labels, 500 copies on silver/black marble and 700 on green/white marble. The silver/black marble is the only opaque color with the gold and “green/white marble” are translucent. he “green/white marble” turned out to be a translucent solid green. The black copies were only sold on Viinie’s acoustic basement tour and come autographed on top of the hand numbering, which are both done on the blank white center labels. Xtra Mile had 300 copies on clear vinyl. The U.S. pressing features an etched b-side while the Euro pressing  does not.

So far the only color to sell out is the gold from the U.S. pressing. All remaining colors from the U.S. pressing are available from RFC but if you order via another source I am not sure what color you will get. Most of the time if you order outside the label directly you get the least rare color, but with this record that is not the case as I ordered from Interpunk and received the silver/black marble.
