BLACK SMOKE BAND - I'LL KEEP SEARCHING / GET'N OFF (BLACK SMOKE PRODUCTIONS) FAIR £BIDS SOLD

Probably only 2 other copies of this 45 known. One over here and one in the States.

Last copy in VG condition sold for £1500.

This one has no doubt spent a great deal of it's life un-sleeved but still plays good and strong.

There are lots of fine scratches but nothing feelable or deep, no loud pops or clicks.

I have played this out and it sounds magnificent. Truly remarkable find. Looking at offers over £600

FAME - CHANGE (PGC) M- £550 525

Sticking with the ultra-rare 70's is this Butch discovery and ex c/up. Probably only a couple of handful copies

of this tiny, private press, stormer around. A recent copy sold for £800! So here's a chance to

obtain at a more realistic price. Has an edge warp, does not affect play.
