A Record Collector's Guide

Rocket from the Crypt


Split w/ the Misfits

Radio and TV Broadcasts from the UK 1995

Unofficial LP, released 1997/2009

This contained exactly the same recordings as the last entry...this one just had a 1981 Misfits set on the flip side. Also originally limited to 300 copies, with a plain black sleeve and hand-numbered insert. I have seen this record sell for a lot of money. Must be the Misfits collectors getting in on it. It came WAY down after it was re-pressed. These were all on white vinyl (as far as I know).

The test pressing was on black vinyl. For the test press, the inserts (the two on separate pieces of paper) were taped to the inner sleeve, and the 300 was crossed out and replaced with a number out of 15. If it were just the inserts that were altered, I would be skeptical, but the fact that it was on a different color of vinyl tells me that it was a legit test pressing.

Starting in 2009, a second pressing of this one started to surface with different inserts. That pressing also appeared to be of 300, and was also numbered (though, of course, rule number one of dealing with bootlegs is don't trust bootleggers...). As mentioned, this pressing caused the value of the original pressing to drop considerably. The new Rocket insert was a dead giveaway for it being a later pressing, as it stole some of the artwork from the RFTC album, which was released two full years after the initial pressing of this boot.
