The video above is a collection I bought locally in Los Angeles from a girl whose boyfriend had gone back to Canada and didn’t return for many months. I paid a fair price for this collection, but got a way better deal that I would normally get buying from a collector that was trying to cash in (and there’s nothing wrong with that).
The average condition was a long way from near mint and was an average of “very good”. It was a mix of classic rock, hard rock, thrash metal, and punk.
Some of the standouts in the collection included:
Samhain – November-Coming-Fire LP – 1986 Plan 9 – PL9-07 VG/VG – this was an actual first press, it was difficult to tell with reading the runout matrix which is.
Matrix / Runout (A-side etchings): PL-9-07-A -Pa.1-86
Matrix / Runout (B-side etchings): PL-9-07-B -Pa.1-86
Matrix / Runout (Stamped on both sides, EDP is circled): MASTERED BY TRUTONE EDP
Matrix / Runout (A-side label): PL9-07-A
Matrix / Runout (B-side label): PL9-07-B
Autopsy – Severed Survival LP 1989 Peaceville – VILE 12 United Kingdom VG/VG – very rare – one of the first albums to come out on Peacevillle Records (1989) – which didn’t get on the map as a big underground label until the 1990s/
