I can go on for days!!! But, sad to say, I still haven't owned a Stark Reality, ever. >:(
I just refuse to pay that much. Oh, and I'm a broke mutha f**ker,,,,,, that probably plays a big part.

    I'm pretty satisfied with what I have.
    Or have had.
    Had 3 or 4 copies of Stark Realty, back when people first started looking. Also it's reissued or you can listen to most (all?) cuts on youtube.

    Today I got a small stack of gospel 45s, good stuff, quartets and duets and solos, one soul sounding side.
    Some are Portland groups, but top notch, some are a mic in a church with organ in the back in hand claps right on the mic.
    When unexpected stuff like that shows up, something I have never heard or heard of, that's what makes my day.

    Fatty Nauty 7" EP on Barclay...French Strutters plaese to holluer

    not expensive but elusive as fugg

  • SoulOnIceSoulOnIce 13,027 Posts
    it's not particularly valuable (steady $400 record, pricey but not ZOMG) ...
    it's not especially rare, turns up on eBay a few times a year ...

    but damned if I haven't wanted this 45 since I was a teenager, almost 25 years:




    also, uber crust want, but a clean OG of the original Johnny Burnette & the Rock and Roll Trio 10" LP on Coral would be filed until the day I die, I wouldn't sell it to pay for life-saving surgery for myself. Maybe for my family, but not for myself.

    Greg Cartwright of the Reigning Sound/Oblivians sometimes sits in with us at our DJ nights and he plopped this on the turntable the other night and I was like "you bastard!" A long time want of mine as well...

    that's pretty sick that he brings out records to spin with you guys, I'm sure he has gemz 4 dayz.

    this is the one record I want that I know that I will probably never see in my lifetime



  • ennuiennui 111 Posts
    Har-You Percussion Group. Closing in on 10 years of deep want, probably will be at least another 20 before I find one. It's gonna have to bea field find (unlikely in California) or a heavy trade, as I cannot even remotely afford the going rate.

    Thanks to Beto (with a timely referral from Musica), my #1 Latin Grail = :holygrail: (Phirpo LP)

    In terms of what's still at Grail Status???, East of Underground would have to be at the very top; I can't think of what else comes close in terms of 1) personal desirability, 2) rarity and 3) difficulty to acquire based on cost.

    The Betty Chung "Bang Bang" EP would be a Top 3 too.

    Relatively Clean Rivers - It pops up once or twice a year, but I can't afford its going rate.
    Merkin Manor - Ditto.
