The first 3,000 copies were pressed on pink or marbled blue vinyl and released in a folded sleeve that had a Singles Club card attached. Some black vinyl copies were also released in this type of sleeve. Subsequent colors, in a manufactured picture sleeve, are: aqua/turquoise, black, marbled blue, peach, pink, rose, translucent, and yellow (except for the black vinyl, all other copies seem to be translucent vinyl).

The recent pressings are on black vinyl with black labels, differing it from the previous pressings which all had yellow labels.
The first of these recent repressings on black vinyl with black labels were released sometime during the late 90´s.

Notes : Most Sub Pop vinyl is pressed by Erika, but not all copies indicate this (which is also the case with certain Bleach LPs). This version of the Sliver single is clearly from Erika's plant because the company is either mentioned on the sleeve or the record's yellow labels, or both.

After the song Sliver ends, there follows an excerpt of a phone call by Jon Poneman, that is included in the liner notes after the design credits.

It was the third Nirvana album to be released following the death of vocalist and guitarist Kurt Cobain in April 1994, and the first to feature studio material. It is also the band's first best-of compilation. The compilation features the previously-unreleased You Know You're Right, a song recorded in January 1994 during Nirvana's final studio session. It also includes a chronological selection. Sliver is a song by the grunge band Nirvana. It was originally released as a non-album single in 1990 by Sub Pop. It later appeared on their compilation album Incesticide in 1992 and their 2002 'best of' album Nirvana. DGC re-released the song to radio to support the release of Incesticide, resulting in significant airplay. A live performance is included on the 1992 In Bloom single, another live performance can be seen on the 1994 home video Live Tonight Sold Out released on DVD in 2006, and a third live performance was included on the live al read more. by Nirvana.

As evidence that Nirvana didn't sell out with their Nevermind album, Kurt Cobain pointed to Sliver and About a Girl as early tracks with pop sensibilities - catchy melodies were always in his quiver. More songs from Nirvana. Nirvana released their first rarities compilation at the height of their success, 1992's Incesticide which also came with a screed from Kurt Cobain that read If any of you in any way hate homosexuals, people of different color, or women, please do this one favor for us-leave us the fuck alone. Even the 2002 greatest hits album had non-album material. Not to mention the tons of Nirvana bootlegs that have surfaced over the years, which are home to some crucial recordings. Nirvana diehards probably know all of this, but approaching the hours and hours of the band's available non-album material for the first time can be intimidating. Sliver was written by Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic and produced by Jack Endino. The song was released on the single of the same name and the compilation album Incesticide. A music video was made for Sliver as a promotion for Incesticide in March 1993. Directed by Kevin Kerslake, the video starts with Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean Cobain who was an infant at the time dancing to the opening bassline and the band in a small, cramped, junk room playing their instruments.

Why is this a miss press ?
I think it's an attempt to church-up this particular copy. Nothing special about it.
