    Dia Prometido - s/t on Iranian Royal label. Haven't seen many copies around.

    Hava Naguila

    Sound Of Silence

    I would like to own this on vinyl.

    I can't remember where (I think it was in an ebay listing for this record) , but I read that these dudes caught serious heat years later for having recorded 'Hava Nagila', which was unusual even at the time.

  • Definitely my Biz Markie 'Just a Friend' Acetate with an alternate beat. Only on the acetate. Maybe 5 copies in existence, if that many.

    he had posted it for trade in the want/trades section a while back.

    On Sound Workshop?

    I'm pretty sure there isn't a repress other than the US Makossa and the Kalakuta from the box set.

  • good news, it smelled like an og anyway, paid about 3,7??? for this

  • mc richie rich & scratch lp. this was a cassette only release but a few vinyl test pressings were made. old school milwaukee rap from the early 90's. the only one that ever sold on ebay went for $1800.00. a 7" of 2 songs from the lp was re-issued on jamille records.

    Finally got a working jpeg of the Black Seeds up. This was from the same series as the East of Underground LP. The first and second place winners of a military band competition in Germany got to record their set and release this album. Picked it up at a record swap in Newark, CA about 10+ years ago for something like $25.

    or this Mulatu 45 I copped on Ebay for 10 dollars.

    A test pressing of "Ice Ice Baby" by what sounds like a black guy called "Kamil Nice". I assume that it's the only one in existence.

    Probably a mispressing with Neil Young Hey Hey My My b/w Dave Edmunds Creature From the Black Lagoon.

    I remember asking for it in the local mom n pop record shop, Reggie Reed's in Rye Lane, Peckham. The old granny with the blue rinse beehive had been there since the 50s, and knew every catalogue number of the new releases off by heart. As she pulled the 45 from a box she said I'd been lucky as they were just about to reseal the box and return them for destruction. Apparently her shop had been unlucky enough to get the only dud batch. Eyeroll.
    I walked out thinking one day this will be worth a million, y'know, once Dave Edmunds took his deserved place at the top of the pop hitmakers parade, austerity Britain's low-rent but real 'n' raw blue collar rocker.

    Well it is worth a million now - a million fucking Zimbabwe bingbangs.

  • I guess this is my rarest record. Not an insane $1000 Grail, but pretty tough to get still. Mine's mint too:

    It sure does!

  • Cleo Jackson w/ Huck & The Soul Patrol - I'm The Reason 45
    Cosmic Flight Inc. - Untitled 5 song demo EP / 12" thing
    Tony Fort - Hooked Around Your Body 45

    I also have some awesome song poem stuff, but I'm not sure of the numbers pressed on any of them --

    Anything else monumentally rare has been cashed out.

  • Only stuff that I currently own

    Kozmonaut - Flieg LP
    http://www.discogs.com/Kozmonaut-Flieg/release/2340407

    1000 pressed up, but they were never sold. All copies were supposed to be discarded, but a few (only one?) survivied. Found this in a Bay Area thrift store this year.
    --------
    Don Scott - Love With Me 45
    http://www.discogs.com/Don-Scott-Love-With-Me-Loving-You/release/1900933

    Self released 45. This record was sold through one single recordstore in Santa Cruz on commission basis for a short period of time. Only very few copies of this 45 were ever sold. It has no sales history at all. I have a copy up for sale right now.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/DON-SCOTT-Love-Me-VERY-RARE-Modern-SOUL-45-gem-/390262525673?pt=Music_on_Vinyl&hash=item5add758ee9
    --------
    Fame - Change 45


    Recent discovery. Tracked down the producer. Late 70's Bay Area release. Only very few pre-release copies pressed up as they had contract disputes with the band. Sold a copy; still have a personal copy. Have never seen another copy of this anywhere nor any info besides my Popsike/Collectorsfrenzy copy.
    --------
    Danny Williams - A Brand New Love Affair 45



    The other Danny Williams release. Discovered this record in 2008 when it was unknown. Sold one copy this year, still have a personal copy. No other copies have ever surfaced to my knowledge.
