Hello Tony

Don't panic, the 'Wax' one is a reissue made for the Carolinas surf scene, or 'Shag scene' as most of em put it.

Good record mate :unsure:

It's actually the "Wax Museum" label. There's at least 5 or more releases on the label, I think! Although I think the original owner has passed on, they still sell through mailorder. Never managed to get anything nice from them, though. Just cheap stuff.

yes agree - superb record - picked one up a while back on wax museum for a few dollars - any idea what it goes for? played it out a few months back in stockport and managed to clear the floor! could say it's pretty unknown around these parts!

Hi Grant,

You don't see this listed that often, the original one on Topic that is (well i don't) i'm sure somebody will say something different.

The last one i saw was on Manships in 2001, it was £500 than for an E condition one, so i don't know what price you'd put on it now. I know how much i payed of course!!! :lol:

Found a copy for USD 2 (!) from an american seller about two years ago. Kept it for a while, then sold it at e-bay. Got around GBP 350 for it, and it was not in the best of conditions.

is that on the Topic label? I know it's rare on that but you rarely see it for sale on Wax Museum either - be interested to know what it is valued at on that label - probably be selling mine soon anyway

offerd on by the guy from wax museum for £150. too much IMHO for what is really a boot. we can argue over 'legitimate reissue' etc, but its no more worthy than the northern boot/reissues of the 70's

http://www.waxmuseum.net/

just like goldmine, etc really.

get one on topic or nothing
