Btw, if you like this item, be sure and check out the rest of my stuff - 7" & 12" vinyl, 70's punk, Stiff Records, colored vinyl, picture discs - most never played, many promo only items, Fillmore West/Winterland/Family Dog handbills and posters, all guaranteed original as everything was acquired by me personally in the late 60's, 70's and early 80's. I'm downsizing my collection and I try to grade conservatively.Drop me a note if there's something you're looking for.-Steven
