When the fledgling Dischord label released successive pressings of its epochal Flex Your Head compilation with new covers, it was just a lark. The various covers, however, turned copies of the album into that bane of pure- hearted music lovers: collector’s items. Now Dischord’s CD reissue of the album allows buyers to create the collector’s item of their choice. In addition to the regular information booklet, the disc includes a four- sided insert containing all four covers; thus, Flex owners can personalize their copy of the disc, folding the insert to the violin cover (the first one), the harDCore-flag one (therarest), the blurry-photo one (the most common), or the wheat-field one.
