This release seems to have gone through 3 different pressings with quite a few cover/ lyricsheet variations. I have never seen or heard of a color vinyl variation although some of the 1st press and both 2nd press records I own are on very thin vinyl that appears to be a translucent brown. This happened with other band's releases too so I don't consider this a color vinyl pressing. Maybe though it marks a 2nd pressing with the 1st press labels which would mean there were rather 4 than just 3 pressings. Who knows? I tend towards 3 pressings with varying vinyl qualities. No idea about testpressings.
If you know or own anything I don't please let me know. Pictures would be great.
