Rocket from the Crypt
This record actually caught fire and melted my last turntable. The tracks from this one made frequent appearances in the band's live sets. They would regularly play at least the first three songs from this record in order. Most of these were on black vinyl, but there were also a few on blue marble vinyl and a small number on pink marble vinyl. There were some pressing numbers making the rounds that turned out to be false. Long Gone John of Sympathy for the Record Industry estimates that there were between 100 and 200 blue copies and around 100 pink copies. The pink one is a very tough find, but a few have turned up in the last couple of years. As a result, the prices have been all over the place - up above $150, down below $50...it's hard to say how it will go at any given point.
