Cramps - Totally Destroy Seattle
In the late seventies, the music world was pretty dismal. Mainstream radio was horrendous - so I turned back to fifties rockabilly and what punk I could find. Then I discovered the Cramps, who were a perfect mixture of the two. Little did I know then, but many of their early tunes were covers... Flash ahead to the early eighties, when I bought this new at a record show in Toronto. Turns out it's one of the rarest Cramps items ever. Only 50 produced, handmade silk-screen cover by one of the founders of Black Flag, and the sound quality is amazing. I have an old 1998 copy of the Osborne record price-guide that lists this for $500. Yikes!
