My complete record trade list on Hows Your

After collecting punk vinyl for 15 years, I am calling it quits.  More and more I’m coming to realize the aged truism:  we don’t own our possessions, our possessions end up owning us.  It’s time for me to pass on a lot of this for others to enjoy, who will eventually pass on to another, etc etc.  This is just the natural cycle of collectors of any kind, and I think it’s a fun thing to be a part of.  I’ve enjoyed compiling several different collections; so much so, that I’m taking the time to document many of my favorite “sub-collections” here in photographs.  I’ve also included little stories about each photo regarding little fun facts about how I came to own some of these, etc. I don’t have a specific time table for any of this, and I’m not selling everything. I’ll be keeping one copy of every single release I own, because I do want the artwork and the music!  I just don’t need multiple copies of the same release anymore.  That means I won’t be selling my one original Antidote 7″ or my only copy of Victim In Pain, etc.  I’ll also be keeping all of my Minor Threat, Youth Of Today, Carry On, Champion, and Rivalry releases – these are all bands that had a significant influence on me and/or I was involved with the bands.  I will post things for sale at my own pace, in no order other than “whatever is easiest to part with first”.  First and foremost this is just a visual documentation of my collection.  Not everything you see in photos will be for sale, though much of it will be.   I’ll make separate “sale posts” when I identify pieces that are ready to sell.  Enjoy the stories and photos!

      Hey Geoff, thanks a lot! I know that you have most of this Rev stuff, and then some!! I never did hunt down an I Spy sleeve, or a Bold on pink, and I think you’ve got both of those covered!

      Pretty much all of the “clear red” copies are “clear pink”. The red is really more of a pink. So is mine. That’s definitely not what I was talking about with the “pink” version of the swirl copies….

    Greetings from Vermont. I found your site while researching a blue vinyl copy of Break Down The Walls by Youth of Today. I had seen the Revelation copy sell on eBay for less than $20, and didn’t realize at the time that mine was the much rarer Wishing Well version. It’s currently up for auction on eBay in a lot with some other vinyl. Do you have an idea of the current market value of this record? The cover is in fair/good condition. Thanks for your help!
