What is the rarest album you own?


Motley Mike

Recommended Posts

I dont know whats rare anymore, it seems like surely after I spend years and dollars aquiring something, it goes and gets reissued, but these were my rarest.

 

The Tubes - Young & Rich

 

Hard Knox - Psycos R Us

 

Sluts Crazy

 

Noize Toys - Falling In Lust Again

 

Sagittarius - Sanity Of Madness

 

Like I said, I don't know how rare they are anymore, if any of them have been reissued, but mine are the original pressings!

I've got quite a bit of rare CDs (Taken, Sweet Teaze, Schoolboy Crush, Pretty Wicked, Dr Grind, Jillson, New Dynasty, Concrete Jungle, Eli....and I could go on).

 

But I think the rarest CD I have may be Soren - S/T. It was a demo only and I'm sure there aren't many copies floating around out there. Not sure it sells for as much as many of the rare CDs I own, but rarity wise I think that may be the one...but I'm not completely sure.

 

That Soren disc is a good one and agree, it is a rare one, but probably wouldn't fetch the Friction kind of $$$, for what reason I don't know.

 

 

As James mentioned I have that Innerfear disc and with only 250 pressed I would say it is pretty elusive.

 

And as Steve mentioned, I have some of the staple rarities: Concrete Jungle, Emergency, Villan, but would say discs like Storm Within, Dead Serious, Hello/goodbye, Tresspasser, etc... are just as rare, just as good, but unknown to the masses.

 

The rarest cd I have, however, is from 2009! That's right, this year! Only 3 copies exist! The 3 discs were made at Ardent studios, one kept by the engineer and 2 given to the bands guitarist and in turn one was given to me! The cd in question is: TOP HEAVY CRUSH-S/T

The disc is brilliant and unfortunately do to extenuating circumstances will never see the light of day....

 

Terry, I have a cd I think its called "Second Nature", if I remember right it features the brothers from Top Heavy Crush , its from like 1997.

I only recently found out that the CD of Ratt's self titled EP goes for anywhere from $75-$100 on Amazon :yikes:...I've had that one for several years and had no idea.

Wow that's a great one and I wish I could run across that one somewhere for a decent price.

I imagine with that one coming out in 1983 that they didn't press to many copies of that one.

When Ratt released it on their own label (Time Coast) I think it was vinyl/cassette only. Atlantic repackaged and re-released it a few years later on CD, which is the copy I have. But apparently that Atlantic version has also been out of print for some time now, hence the ridiculous price on Amazon.

 

What makes it even sweeter is that I got that CD for nothin'. :lol: A couple of years ago a chick I worked with brought in a whole bag of CDs that she was trying to get rid of. They belonged to her ex boyfriend who'd moved to Florida after she kicked him out of their apartment. In addition to the Ratt I also got King Kobra's "III" and two Hurricane discs in that haul, amongst others. :beerbang:

How is that Kage album? I've read that it's either glam or thrash online :S

 

It's actually a very awesome disc. I'd definately call it glam, though some of the songs are much heavier than most of your typical 80's glam bands. Certainly doesn't qualify as thrash, not even close.

 

 

that kage album reminds me alot of leatherwolf & fifth angel, their 2nd album is pretty cool too :beerbang:

 

This sounds like it's right up my alley. What's the singer like? Are the songs actually any good coz I know sometimes we fans can get into a rut of going after a particular sound ;)

That double best of is pretty expensive. I bought it from his site.

It's also worth checking out his Jap only EPs, they usually have a gem or two on them and you can generally get them for $10US on ebay + shipping. Cheers.

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
