Question
Im about to buy this vinyl and I was wondering if you knew how many were made of the "swirl"? I read that 2,000-2,500 were made of each individual color I didnt know if it was different for the swirl. Its a gift so I wanted to know as much as possible. Thanks for your time

Answer
Kim,

I have heard the same for the swirl. I don't own one but know many who do and there have been gripes about how it sounds when played. That said, it's a collectible and shouldn't be played, similar to the Sublime's acetate. They are highly collectible and quite beautiful and any real fan would love to have it on display.

Expertise

Guarantee: you will receive an answer within 2 days of posting the question -- whether it is a referral to a different expert or a straight answer to your question. I can answer most questions about the band, the significance of the lyrics, the show dates, the unreleased albums and tracks, misinformation, and, above all, I am an expert on their influences and related music. Additionally, if you're looking for that hard to find track or a cheap alternative to the $300 book Crazy Fool: Portrait of a Punk, I might be able to help.

Experience

I have been a huge fan for 16 years, I ran a server which distributed Sublime's live and unreleased music 24/7 for 4 years, I have answered questions about the band daily for a decade on their old website, and I know some of the largest collectors in the world. I created the 5 CD bootleg "Rewind Selector" which documents the influences of Sublime and was the topic of a Spin Magazine interview.

Education/Credentials
I did not study music in college, but I majored in English, so I can write a clear response. I worked as a research assistant in the past, so I have skills in research if I need to figure out an answer.

Past/Present Clients
Sublime fans aren't my clients, but I have distributed swag and rare tracks to all those who want them for years at little cost.
