This release is for the PURPLE colored vinyl, which was limited to 20 copies.
Refer to the MR for the vinyl pressing data, and details regarding the various cover jackets. The back of the jacket features a screen-printed white oval containing hand-numbered print - 'XXX of 320'
The vinyl was chiefly sold at Cave In shows. The album is accompanied by a copy of the production run CD insert, and a special printed note that provides unique details about the limited release.
The printed note insert issued with the vinyl measures 3.9" x 8.3" The text of said insert is reproduced directly below.
[BEGINNING of NOTE] What you hold in your Hands is the limited vinyl version of the Cave-In CD "Beyond Hypothermia." Most of the songs on this collection are rather old and the band felt that the record itself should be kept in the CD format, as it is not a completely accurate document of their [sic] current sound. However since vinyl is the inherently cooler format, the band and the label both felt that a limited LP version would be a nice gift to the fanatics and collectors. This LP is limited to 320 copies (20 on purple and 300 on grey) and was not sold in distros or stores nationwide, but was kept for the band to sell at shows, for Hydra Head to give to thier [sic] direct mailorder customers, and for a few northeast area stores. In other words if you got one of these puppies consider yourself lucky. Anyway we hope you enjoy our little project and thank you for helping avoid the death of the beloved 12" Record Format for a few more days. Viva La Revolution.
Love, Cave-In and Hydra Head Records.
Jackets designed and screen printed by A. Turner at the school of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA.
