Baby Shakes - S/T LP - Blue/Pink Split Vinyl /100
So I missed the boat on this record when it first came out, and became a fan after the fact. The upbeat pop w/ 50s/60s girl vocals works their way into my head. Fast forward to a few weeks ago. The great label with the silly name , Douchemaster Records, emailed out that they had a few of the Baby Shakes LPs on colored vinyl, but with slightly damaged covers. And they were only $4. So I decided to grab one and if the cover was really all that bad, I'd just buy a copy on black vinyl and swap the covers. Well as it turns out the damage on the cover appears to be coffee stains and a tiny, tiny bend in the bottom left hand corner. Honestly the bend is so little, It's no big deal really. but the coffee stains bugged me. However, a quick, very slightly damp paper towel across the cover and BAM! All clean, stains gone, perfectly good, rare colored vinyl record for $4. I love finds like this!
