Anthony Green – Young Legs

It’s hard to believe this is Anthony Green’s third solo album. The guy hardly ever takes a break; between writing, recording and touring with Circa Survive it’s amazing he has any time for his solo project. Young Legs was released in late 2013, and there was some extravagant pre-order options for it. Of course you could opt for buying just the CD or vinyl version of the album, but there was an option for an extremely limited hand painted cover for the LP that cost a pretty penny, $350. And that was not even the most expensive package to choose from. Seven lucky/moronic people went for the $1000 package, which consisted of the aforementioned hand painted cover, a one hour Skype performance and hand written lyric sheet exclusively for this people who bought this package, a t-shirt and the deluxe edition of the CD version of Young Legs.

The hand painted cover version of the record was limited to 50 copies. Except for the hand painted cover it’s identical to the regular version of the record. There is no exclusive vinyl color or anything like that. All the records come on black vinyl. I believe each hand painted cover was unique, but featured roughly the same design, which looks nothing like the image that accompanied the pre-order bundles for it. The unique part is the colors used to paint the squiqqly design on the left side of the jacket. There is apparently also a “free pass” version of the record where Anthony Green apparently also wrote “guest list for life” on 5 of the hand painted covers, though I don’t know of anyone who actually has one of these “free pass” versions nor have I seen pics of one. Not calling BS on it, just that there is no proof any of them actually exist.
