    E_E was yelling at me for remotely thinking the WACF vinyl cover is blue...

    I can't believe this needs to be hashed out.

    Some of the official european 180 gram vinyl re-issues were printed incorrectly with blue and yellow covers.

    I bought the album on vinyl in 1980, it was green.

    Bought it on tape in 1985, it was green.

    Bought the CD in the early 90's, it was green.

    Re-bought the vinyl, it was green.

    Bought the remastered CD, it was green.

    It was never blue or blue/grey in the U.S.

    Trust me on this.

    I'm thinking Green too.

    My original is at home (I'm at work now) and it dates from around 1980, so it's period correct.
    I'll check it later.

    I can't believe we are on a classic VH site, debating the color of an album cover that has existed
    over 30 years.

    VHII is purple!

    The background to Van Halen II is sapphire not purple.

    WACF is British Racing Green with Pale Silver.

    British racing green, or BRG, a color similar to Brunswick green, hunter green, forest green or moss green, takes its name from the green international motor racing color of the United Kingdom

    Pale Silver is the pale tone of silver color called silver in Crayola crayons.
    Silver has been a Crayola color since 1949.
