I assumed 1991 but I could be wrong
What would a woman that fine want in a big, fat, nasty, greasy, fat, stank, bloated, cheesy-backed, 12-sandwich-eatin' bastard?

I always assumed 1991 as well. The CD gives no release date. The website for Your Choice was no help. Allmusic and sites that get their music info from AllMusic say 1994. All Melvins fan based sites list 1991 (could I have been part of a mass assumption? or is Allmusic wrong as usual?) I've got 100 bucks riding on this trivia, but if there is no verified sources it might be a wash. I e-mailed your choice records, so maybe there is an answer to the mystery.
*edit* Prindle lists 1992.....

I'm quite sure it was 1992, allthough I'm not a 100% sure about it.  I bought 15 copies of at that time with a friend of mine who had a record shop.

But if it's very important ask Tobby who runs (ran?) Your Choice: info@yourchoicerecords.de.
To be afraid when you are alone, in the dark, faced with the unknown, the unspeakable; that is understandable fear. To be afraid, mortally afraid, in broad daylight, in a crowded city street, that is to know Melvins.

Had to be '91, couldn't have been '94.....However, the LP & the CD have no copyright date anywhere on the packaging or the Lp/disc themselves....so if your betting on '94, that really your only shot...but even the next one,Vol.13(Various Artists), with 'It's Shoved' ,which was left off of the Melvins Vol. 12, was released in '91.

Released    Artist                                           Title                                    Catalog #

According to Discogs.com it's 1991: http://www.discogs.com/Melvins-Your-Choice-Live-Series/master/50710

Not sure how reliable that info is, because it's user generated.

I've always thought it was 1991.  I have it stacked it my collection as if it came out before Bullhead but I'm not sure if that's true.

It was recorded when they went on tour with Steel Pole Bathtub. There is a SPBT Live-7"  on Your Choice from the show.

Oh, did I mention, that I have a videotape of both bands playing Copenhagen on that tour?

I have mine stacked in my collection after Bullhead came out but before Eggnog. I have no clue which one of us is right

Well...'Tanked' is an early version of 'Wispy'. So, since they changed the name before it was put on Eggnog & all of the 'Bullhead' tracks have the correct names.....probably came out, or at least recorded, before Eggnog came out.
