That's great, I love it!

I've got lots of Punk LPs that I bought new back in the '70s/'80s. I sure some are quite rare, but have no idea which would be "most collectible?"

The Damned didn't play this gig. Rat Scabies quits the band. The Damned and The Nasale Boys were intended to support The Clash.

( ( ( ( ( ((((((( Cool
    As 'Cactus' already stated, I bought all of my so called punk recordings in the late 70's and early 80's. I don't care about their monetary value, therefore I can't point out a very scarce.

    But I've been told, that the first Lp of 'The Damned' with the false picture printed on the back (Eddie & The Hot Rods) is pretty rare. You can see it on my site.

    Thanks Sid for the confirmation, so I was obviously lucky that I was able to snatch a copy!

That's cool B big! It took me many many years to finally find one of those at reasonable price. Did you get yours when it came out?

By the way, I like your site, very cool.

My most "collectable punk rarity" may be my Misfits "Cough Cool" single. But then I could be proven wrong if I ever put some of my other records or non vinyl crud up for sale.

Now here is something I'd be interested in your opinions on. This is a RIAA platinum record award (1 million sales in the US) for the Sex Pistols 'NMTBHTSP" LP. It's made out to Johnny Rotten. I love hanging this thing on my wall, but do you see it as collectable as say the above mentioned Misfits 7"? I think not as it was issued many years after the band disintergrated, and was issued by a major label association to pat one of its own members on the back you could say, so it doesn't have that authenticity of coming from the original era of the bands activity. But on the other hand it may desireable to a wider audience who maybe do not necessarily collect punk records or paper items, but know that it's a legit RIAA award and it's got probably the most recognizeable band member and band of the punk era on it. So my bet is that "Cough Cool" currently would command a higher price than this award, but perhaps this here award would be considered more "collectable" to a wider audience. Sorry, I have a bad habit of splitting hairs.

I'd say that is much rarer than the ''Cough Cool'' single. How many of those Misfit's singles were made.....maybe 500 ?? They sure didn't make 500 of those platinum record awards. I've seen at least 3 original copies of 'Cough Cool' in my life,so it's definitely rare,but it's out there....can you say that about the Pistols thing ? But don't try playing that platinum record ! Laughing
