Ebay Rock 45's

Each Friday, I post a select group of 5 rock 45's that sold on Ebay recently along with the corresponding video - so ya get to hear what the fuss is all about!

Here's the list for the week ending March 24th, 2011

From the Auction:
This is The Manic Street Preachers first release. There was a pressing of 300 total. There were 100 with newspaper cutout collage & 200 with hand glued cardboard jackets. This record is from the 200 edition. It is the original,I bought when it first came out as a mail order directly from the band.

The Exploding Hearts Modern Kicks $49.99

From the Auction:

Limited Edition or 200 (or was it only 100 on Pink/Swirl?) pressed, Original first Pressing
Essential Power Pop garage Punk!

Here's a special treat that I found - went for about $400! ($8 a piece - what a bargain!)

Released by the Garage Greats label in 5 batches of 10 singles in 2008 & 2009 (I think), all strictly limited to 500 copies, numbered by hand! Some of these are already hard to come by, and you will have to spend some time (and postage) if you want to collect a complete set of this series today. The singles typically retailed for around USD 10 each, and I offer free postage, so don't let this opportunity pass you by!

Here is a description, probably from the label: "A new label dedicated to reissuing the best and rarest 1960's garage 45s from around the world. Each 45 has been re-mastered at the world famous Abbey Road Studios with the intention of reproducing the original singles exactly, the only changes were raising the db levels to give maximum playback enjoyment. Some of these 45s are so rare as to be simply impossible to find no matter how deep your pockets." "In keeping with the original releases the original labels have been reproduced faithfully. Each release is a hand-numbered limited edition of 500 that comes in a generic Garage Greats house bag."
