160 gram black vinyl. The Presidents of the United States of America's debut album came out in 1995, first on a tiny Seattle label called Pop Llama, then some months later on Columbia Records. 1995 was a time when vinyl seemed like a format whose days were numbered. Because OMG COMPACT DISCS! We stayed very busy circling the globe and kicking out the jams and selling gajillions of these "CDs." Now, 25 years later, it's on vinyl for the very first time!!
