Rectangular graphic with a lime green background and white and black rings drawn over it. In the center is a record sleeve with an LP sticking partially out. The LP has a green apple in the center of it. The sleeve of the record reads, in groovy font, "Green Apple Books, Record of the Month Club"

About the Record of the Month Club
Every month, we nominate a bookseller-endorsed LP for Record of the Month and promote the album, band, and label throughout the course of the month.We put heavy emphasis on local and/or off-the-beaten track artists and labels with the intention of bringing support and attention to our community's vibrant creative landscape.

About the Artist(s)
Before The Reds, Pinks & Purples started getting noticed by a larger audience, the "I Should Have Helped You" 4 song EP snuck out on Swedish experimental label I Dischi Del Barone and quickly disappeared, becoming a little-heard but often whispered about piece of the RPPs discography. Recorded around the same time as the material that ended up on his breakthrough LP Uncommon Weather, it contains some of the best examples of Glenn Donaldson’s melancholy but wry take on indie pop. Needless to say, it's terrific.

The original 7" is now a white whale for collectors, trading for silly prices on Discogs when it shows up at all. This music needs to be heard, so we've put together this limited reissue that adds six more tracks to make it a mini-LP length grab bag of hits. It has songs about record shopping, religion, worker's rights, dysfunctional holidays, and of course heartbreak sung over a maze of shimmering fuzzy guitars and drum machine beats -- an essential chapter of the Reds, Pinks & Purples story.

"The Reds, Pinks, & Purples have been a store favorite for a long time and always seem to magically appear on every store playlist we make. The dreamy jangle of the guitars, the splendidly melancholic lyrics, and the wispy vocals are exactly what I want in my ears every morning." --Max, Green Apple bookseller
