Rise Above Test Press

I found a test press of the second Rise Above 7 inch. The record was pressed in France and the test is dated in January 1991. The label who released this is called Stand As One Records and hasn't pressed so much releases. The test has printed MPO labels and comes with a regular sleeve, straight from the producer. I asked him how much copies were made and he says he remembers there were only 4 to 5 copies of this test press made. Seems wild, since I know two other people who also have one.

I already did a review of this title. Including an interview with Edward on B Is For Boston. At that moment I did not know that there was a test press. Keeps me surprised. The regular version is on olive green vinyl and they are all that way. Cool thing is that there are only 350 copies pressed.

I have also seen on Instagram that the first 7 inch of Rise Above has got another limited sleeve on purple paper, so that might be the last Rise Above 7 inch I need to complete that collection.
