Vintage Vinyl Sells Rare Punk Seven-Inch LPs on eBay

Dec 8, 2008 at 2:35 pm
While browsing at Vintage Vinyl yesterday, I found out that the store recently bought a collection of records from somebody. This buy was a bit different than others, however. For starters, clerks found a whole ton of old photos of rock stars like Blondie and the Damned just hanging out -- like, quasi-vacation shots or something. And second, the rarities included in the sale were insane. For instance:

*a 45 autographed by Kim Fowley, co-founder bitching punk girl-group the Runaways
*a Beatles 45 with picture sleeve
*Japanese pressings of 45s from the Runaways
*an Adam Ant flexi-disc
*an EMI pressing of the Sex Pistols' "Anarchy in the U.K."
*The Normal's lone single, "Warm Leatherette"
*an autographed 45 of Bobby "Boris" Pickett (a.k.a. the "Monster Mash" dude)
*Television's debut recording, a 45 of "Little Johnny Jewel"

And so on. The latter item is already up on the store's eBay page, and I'm told the rest of the rarities will be listed soon as well.
