But there were loads of singles I can remember that came out on Coloured Vinyl like 999's Nasty Nasty (Green), Sound of the Suburbs - The Members and Life Begins at the Hop - XTC (Clear), C.I.D. - UK Subs (Red, Orange, Blue, Green and a couple of others as well I think), Warhead - UK Subs (Brown), Friday's Angels - Generation X (Orange, Red, Pink and Yellow), Banana Splits - The Dickies (Yellow), Eve of Destruction - The Dickies (Pink), Picture This - Blondie (Yellow), Shadow - The Lurkers (Red), and loads more. I had a Stranglers EP, an American release that was kind of a lucious Pink swirl, and whilst scratching my head think of another album that was coloured vinyl I vaguely recall that Road to Ruin by Ramones was issued on Yellow vinyl.
My choice though is an album that is one of my absolute all-time favourites. I still play this album, sadly not on vinyl these days because I don't have a turntable (but I still have a copy of it that's a bit beaten and worn from a lot of play previously when I did have a player).
I don't think there's a bad track on the album myself, others would probably disagree. Hard to say what my favourite track is on the album but if pressed I'd say it's a toss up between Lovers of Outrage, Nostalgia and Free Money, I can't decide really but the top spot is swaped around between those three!
