Ebay Rock 45's
Each Friday, I post a select group of 5 rock 45's that sold on Ebay recently.
Here's the list for Friday, the 31st of December, 2010
Guilty Razors Don't Wanna Be Rich $454.99
Here is one of rarest french punk records. Both vinyl & sleeve are 100% original pressing from Polydor Records. Not a reissue. I heard there were only 500 pressed, and Polydor melted most copies of this after released. Most of the surviving copies are for promos, therefore they have cut-corners or promo stamps. But this PS have neither cut-corners nor stamps. Impossible to find this PS.
From the Auction:
John Frusciante Estrus $325.00
From the Auction: I bought this the day it came out in 1997 at the Virgin Megastore on Sunset and Crescent Heights in LA. I was a teenager and I remember the record store clerks telling me that they used to spot Frusciante there in that actual store, high on heroin, dropping $800 on cds at a time. I would always geek out at the idea that I was buying records form the same place my hero was buying records. (Later I had my only Frusciante sighting at the Sunset 5 Theater next door, the weekend that John Waters' "Serial Mom" came out. I worked there. I tore his ticket when he came in. He blew smoke in my face and I almost died and went to heaven.)
The EP came out a couple weeks before "Smile From the Streets You Hold, if I'm not mistaken. I had thought it was the release date for "Smile" but of course was down to buy the EP. I took it home and played it once. I've always known it was rare but only recently did I discover that there were only 400-500 copies printed on Birdman Records.
"Estress" is the spelling variant of "Estrus", and was a track that appeared on "Smile From the Streets You Hold."

The Sons Of Adam Feathered Fish $299.00
From the Auction: Here's a superb Mint, Unplayed copy of the Sons of Adam Alamo 45 FEATHERED FISH/BABY SHOW THE WORLD. Feathered Fish was written by the great Arthur Lee (of Love) and both sides feature excellent guitar by Randy Holden of the Other Half/Blue Cheer/Fender IV. An absolutely unimprovable copy of this classic.
