Memorabilia Monday: Siamese Dream Multicolor 12” Vinyl
Released 22 years ago today (7.27.93), Siamese Dream remains one of the most influential and consistent works in rock and roll history. The US vinyl pressing spans a wide spectrum of color variations, from purple to maroon, and red to hot pink. However, the UK vinyl pressing was exclusively black. How did this multicolor version that combines black, red, and blue swirls come into existence? That remains a mystery, but we know it is from the UK and, so far, is the only one of its kind. A well-deserved happy birthday to an equally diverse and mystifying album!
'The multi-color edition was my idea. So I'm guessing they made it, but whomever never sent it for approval.' -William Patrick Corgan
