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!!
