Gogol Bordello – Immigraniada

This was supposed to be a Record Store Day (RSD) 2012 release but apparently was not pressed in time for RSD, even though Pirates Press had pictures of it up on their blog on April 13. Instead it was released three weeks after RSD, the week of May 7.

Immigraniada was pressed as a 12″ on yellow vinyl featuring four remix versions of songs off Gogol Bordello’s latest album, Trans-Continental Hustle. There were only 1,000 copies pressed. One weird thing about this release is that it’s housed in a DJ type jacket, but the cover is not die-cut side, it’s the full panel side. It also open from the top rather than the side. One cool thing is if you slide the record into the jacket so that the a-side faces the back of the jacket and is right side up, (so you can read it) it completes an image of the Brazilian Flag.

The 12″ features two songs on each side. It has “Immigraniada (Bassnectar Remix)” and “Trans-Continental Hustle (Samba Ab-Surdu Mix)”  on the a-side and “Frequencies Of Love (Pedro Meirellles Mix)” and “Trans-Continental Hustle (Rio Cigano Mix)” on the b-side.


One of Motion City Soundtrack’s earliest releases, the Promenade/Carolina 7″ is also one of the band’s hardest to track down. There were only 500 copies pressed, all on white vinyl. These regularly sell for close to $100 at auction. Your best bet to get one for a decent price is from someone having no clue what they have, either through a cheap BIN listing or someone mislabeling the listing. Sometimes it pays to thoroughly scour ebay instead of taking the easy route and just searching through the records category…


This is the frist split Jimmy Eat World ever released, which came out in 1995. The 7″ was released by Ordinary Records, which I believe is now defunct and has been for quite some time. Before I get a ton of comments asking about it, this is NOT the Tooth & Nail Records band Emery. It’s an entirely different band hailing from Los Angeles that was very short-lived.

All copies were pressed on black vinyl and I do not know how many copies were pressed. This is a pretty rare 7″ though, and only pops up for sale once or twice a year, if that. These don’t change hands that much. Odds are the person selling it is clearing out their entire collection. They few I’ve seen up for sale have gone for no less than $20, but usually end up going for closer to $40. I was lucky enough to be checking my email at the right time and got a Discogs alert that someone was selling this split, for $14 to boot.

Far/Incubs – Split 7″

This is another Immortal Records sampler/promo that Far and Incubus appear on. It’s minus Korn, who appear on the other Immortal Records sampler/promo that was released about a year earlier. This 7″ is much rarer and more expensive than the three way split. This one was only pressed on black vinyl, but features the same stock Immortal center labels (white instead of gray/silver) as the three way split. Pressing info was never released for this 7″ despite the fact it was released for the three way split.

Far contribute ‘Water And Solutions” off the album of the same name and Incubus contributes “Glass” from the album S.C.I.E.N.C.E..


Foo Fighters – “Long Road To Ruin” 7″. I do not know how many copies were pressed, which is the norm for Foo Fighters releases.

Foo Fighters – DOA 7″

Foo Fighters – “DOA” 7″. I do not know how many copies were pressed, which is the norm for Foo Fighters releases. However, it’s one of the few singles to be pressed on colored vinyl, yellow. “DOA” the first Foo Fighters 7″ to be pressed on colored vinyl in 12 years. The first since ‘Everlong,” which was on blue vinyl and was released back in 1997. I’m not sure if all copies come in a yellow dust sleeve since I bought this second-hand from someone.
