THE SUGGESTED RULES
(Cut-and-paste these into your auction/sails)

1. Pick your record: Grade, photograph/soundfile it, and post it in Crate Digging Revealed either as a Set Sail or an Auction. (If you choose auction, choose an auction end time, specifying time zone, and the last person to post a bid before the end of the auction [we can use the date/time stamp on posts] wins.)

2. Bidders should post directly in the thread. This will allow everyone to see the action happening, perhaps fueling some gentle competition, and driving the price up. (Play fair, bid heartily, and think of everyone whose lives are completely fucked.)

3. When the item ends, the winner should paypal the funds to [email]order@vanguardsquad.com.[/email] I figure paypalling the money directly to the Vanguard fund will incur only one paypal fee, thereby making money available to relief efforts. Feel free to choose otherwise if you like, but please specify in your auction/sail. Tsega or I can send an email verifying the money has been received, so everyone knows the score. (See post about the Soulstrut Relief effort.)

4. Send the record.

5. Receive the record.



I don't have a digital camera so I can't post the actual record, but this is it. The gatefold cover is VG with faint ringwear, no split seams. Vinyl is VG++, damn near perfect, no marks, no surface noise. Start the bidding at $25 ending at 6:30PM Sept 2nd EST based on the post time wins.

Side1
Naked Ape
Kickin' 9 to 5
Scar on My Memory
The Road Rat

Side2
Little Amazon
The Name of the Game
New Lover
Moby's House

This is not a funk record. It's a black power trio playing heavy psych/garage from New York City, 1969. The first track is mellow folk-psych but the rest of the album is heavy and filled with fuzztone. There's an open syncopated drum break on Kickin' 9 to 5. Moby's House is a psychedelic mix cutting and pasting all the songs on the album. Sounds like Black Merda without funk overtones and more sloppy. This is one of my favorite records. I'll be sad to see it go.

Quote on back cover: "And it came to pass in the year 1969 that Golgotha music was one of the few survivng vestiges of truth. Its prophets of love and truth such as B.B. King, Bob Dylan, Donovan, Aretha Franklin, Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez and others, sang the psalms of time. The crucifixion of the social heroes of the day, such as Dr Martin Luther King Jr, President John F Kennedy, Malcolm X, and Senator Robert F. Kennedy, has made even bigger demands on the importance and value of music, thus creating new prophets of love and truth."

I've never sold a record on the internet but I'll make sure it gets wherever it goes.

Thanks.

    Truth. With the match that's $240.

  • edit. auction ends at original time

  • I've see a lot of people extending their auctions to Monday, 9/5, so I'm going to do the same. 6:30PM EST. Plus it'll give me this weekend to burn the aforementioned vinyls to CD.

    you know what, for the people ending them today, I would say END THEM TODAY! you can still ship em out tuesday or whatever to get your rip on...

    I think we can hit our $25,000 mark by tonight if this keeps up, and lord knows they need this $$ NOW.

    I ain't saying it isn't. Donating money to help people doesn't require any good in return does it? So why not just drop X amount? I mean, I could spend $200 on Bozz Scaggs, or I could buy Bozz Scaggs for $1 and donate $199 to help people. Or even better, donate $200 and still buy bozz scaggs for $1



    Really, I could look at this another way couldn't I? Like why be so selfish as to require a record auction in order to donate? Now what's more valuable? lol

    This is soulstrut coming together right here. People taking records you couldn't pry out of their hands 2 months a go and donating them to raise proceeds for the less fortunate. Sounds a lot more fun and involving then giving red cross your credit #.

    hey man, this is just classic donation. Similar to selling raffle tickets that go to charity. There's a little motivation behind donating. And a little motivation goes a long way. There's no harm in that at all. And personally, the only thing some people have to offer is their records, so this is a great way for them to make a big difference as well. The funds are being quadrupled. That's doing more than donating said value of record to red cross.

    Stop knocking it, and BID!

    This too. The idea behind it is to let go of something you really don't want to let go of. This helps people to feel a small fraction of what the people down in Louisiana feel, and that kind of empathy changes the heart, and not just the pocket book. And greater things can be done when the heart is changed.
