Re: Rare, Rarest and Most Expensive VU items

I'd expect that a nice, intact stickered copy would be far more valuable and historically interesting, than a ripped up 'peeled' cover.

Re: Buddhists on Fire (feat. Sterling Morrison)

I got this a while ago, and it's an ok album without being one I've felt the need to revisit. It's funny that the Youtube videos are also mis-indexed, as the CD is, so that you hear the last few seconds of the last song before the proper song starts.
