Ebay Rock 45's 7/27/12

I'm back searching Ebay for some interesting high $$$ 45s that have sold on Ebay recently.  Here's the top 5 for this week along with the corresponding videos. 

Minor Threat      In My Eyes    $2,026.00

From the Auction:

MINOR THREAT In My Eyes RED VINYL only 125 copies made! 1st press, Cousin(s) PS

Dischord 5/Limp 41
After working with Minor Threat on their demo session and recording the first EP with them, they recorded this second gem, but they needed money help from me to get it pressed, as the indie suppliers were slow in paying Dischord the money they were owed. I bank rolled the pressing costs and they made it a split release between my label and theirs, Jeff Nelson has given me permisssion to use his informative description of how and why this very scarce first pressing came to be...."This copy of 1st pressing (Red Vinyl) of Minor Threat's 2nd 7" EP, released in December 1981. Dischord No. 5 / Limp Records No. 41, in rare xeroxed sleeve. Only 1,000 copies were pressed, and of those 1,000, the first 125 are EXTREMELY rare. We did not have the covers done in time for a show we were playing, and so made 125 xeroxed covers. These 125 covers have a misspelling of "Gary Cousins" in the credits (should have been "Gary Cousin"). Record is in original white paper inner sleeve, with xeroxed, folder-over paper sleeve, inside original (quite thin and loose) plastic bag. (all subsequent copies of "In My Eyes" featured hand-folded and glued record cover) This record does NOT include a lyric sheet, as the lyric sheet was not completed yet. None of the first 125 records came with a lyric sheet, unless we thought to stick one in with the record later on. None of my copies of the record have a lyric sheet in them. This Minor Threat record has 4 songs: "In My Eyes", "Out of Step (with the world)", "Guilty of Being White", and "Steppin' Stone". Recorded by Don Zientara at Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, Virginia (on 4-track tapedeck, in the basement of his house). Produced by Minor Threat. Mixed by Minor Threat and Don. Made possible by Skip Groff (of Yesterday & Today records, and owner of Limp Records)." Jeff forgot to mention that the band made me famous (infamous?) by the comment, "skip, we love you" at the end of Steppin' Stone, this particular copy I am auctioning has everything as Jeff described, only played once in 30+ years, stored carefully. On the xeroxed sleeve, in their haste to assemble the sleeves that day, there is just a slight little cut in the edge of the paper, otherwise in great BOX 8187, good luck!!

Fallout     Rock Hard    $686.13

From the Auction:

Super rare metal 7" featuring  Peter Steele (then billed under his birth name, Peter Ratajczyk) on bass and vocals and Josh Silver on keyboards, as well as John Campos on guitars and one time Agnostic Front/Carnivore drummer Louie Beateaux (then billed as Lou Beato) on drums.Fallout released only one record before the band's demise in 1982, the "Rock Hard" 7" single, released in 1981 on Silver Records. LIMITED TO 500 COPIES.. Sleeve shows only slight signs of aging and is near mint as is the record and photo. Poster is 19" X 24" heavily 
creased at the folds but unused.

The Gaslight Anthem     Sink Or Swim Ep     $289.99

From the Auction:

This listing is for The Gaslight Anthem's Sink Or Swim Demos 7" on BLUE SPLATTER Vinyl with SCREEN PRINTED JACKET. This is a first pressing and LIMITED TO ONLY 104 COPIES!

Racer 5 IPA from the Bear Republic Brewery

It's hot outside, but cool and dark in the Mancave and this Racer 5 India Pale Ale from the Bear Republic Brewery is cooling me pretty well too.  At 7.0 % Alc and 75 IBU, its a creamy hoppy wonder.  I've got some burgers on the grill, which should go well with the IPA.  Some grilled onions, red peppers and jalapenos will accompany the burger and the beer.  

Here's the Bear Republic Brewery site - Racer 5 IPA

2010 Stonehedge Amador County Old Vine Zinfandel

Well, if you have read my blog in the past, you know that I love Zinfandel and the Old Vine designation especially.  Amador County produces some great ones, like the Terra D Oro and Bogle's Zins.  This one ranks right up there with them.  14.4% alcohol, which is pretty typical of the region, this one is nice and dark - a ruby red color with a hint of purple.  One word for the the taste - Sublime.  Leather, Earth, Spice and a long smooth finish - I need to go back and buy a case of this one.

I've got some pork ribs on the grill and will be brushing some homemade BBQ sauce on them right before they are finished.  This wine should go perfectly with the ribs and the hearty roasted potato, mushroom and artichoke heart mix roasting away in the oven (prepped by drizzling olive oil on the mix and dusting with paprika, salt, pepper and Trader Joe's great 21 seasoning salute mix)  Oh yeah - the wine was snagged at Trader Joes' too - just a ten spot for the bottle - such a deal!

Cheers and Bon Apettit,

Ruhstaller 1881 Kuchinski Hop Ranch Red Ale

It's a hot one today - but I got a nice brew open to cool me down - picked this one up earlier this week and saved it for Sunday.  I've had a couple of the Ruhstaller beers before including the 1881 brewed with hops originating from Oregon and Washington, but this one is also brewed using local hops from the Kuchinski hop ranch in Lake County (just north of Napa).

5.6% alcohol and 35 IBU, this red ale is nicely balanced and perfect for a hot summer day. Three finger head and a nice clear red color.  Love the burlap on the bottle and the nice ceramic label - makes for a beer that looks as good in the bottle as it tastes going down.
