While I normally don’t sell stuff on this blog, or in general, I need to get rid of some things. This is the start of a thinning out process of doubles I’ve accumulated over the years along with getting rid of things I no longer listen to. Prices are set on all this for the most part. Except for the Alkaline Trio box and the Look Mexico and Lifetime collections I’m trying to sell as a lot, mainly because I have no idea what someone will pay for the stuff, but I’m not looking for crazy money. Yes, I am a bit late hopping on the Christmas present buying craze. So here are the ground rules:

Only the things on this list are for sale. Do not ask about anything else featured on this blog or anything that is not on the below list. Deals will be made for anyone who buys more than 1 thing. I’ll only ship to the USA. Paypal as payment only. So no bitcoin, Stripe or any of that other nonsense. If a color is not mentioned then it’s on black vinyl. Most of this stuff is either factory sealed or in NM condition. If it’s bad shape I’ll make note of it. If you’re concerned about condition as for pics and I will provide them.

If you’re interested in anything please leave a comment with what you’re interested in and your email address, and we can work out a deal. I will not make the comments public, so people will not get your email address or any other info, but I will be able to see it in order to reply to you via email. The subject line of such email responses will be “Stitches and Grooves record sale.” any questions or concerns about anything up for sale feel free to ask. I’m pretty firm on prices but if you don’t like a pice comment with an offer and we can try to work out a deal.

Everything will be mailed in either an LP or 7″ mailer. I should have plenty to go around, but if I run out I will let you know before making payment. Opened records will be shipped outside the jacket to avoid seam splits. Factory sealed records will not be opened under any circumstances. I know how to package records for shipping, plenty of bubble wrap and/or cardboard inserts will be used to try to minimize damage as best as possible.

Mudcrutch reunited, again, to release their second album. The album is lazily, but appropriately titled 2. To be honest I’m not even sure you can call it a re-reunion because the band never really broke up, they just stopped recording and touring as the project was never meant to be a full time gig. Unlike with the band’s debut album from 2008, 2 features all brand new songs, 11 tracks in total. Personally I like 2 better than s/t.

There was some misinformation being spread about the vinyl version of 2. Bull Moose tweeted out that the album would not be re-pressed, and once copies from the initial run were gone that was it. I’m not sure if that was a sales tactic on their part, because this album didn’t sell all that fast, or if they were given incorrect info. I want to believe it’s the latter because I love Bull Moose. Either way that OOP announcement turned out to be wrong, because the album was re-pressed. To be a bit fair to Bull Moose, the record did pretty much disappear from distros until it was re-pressed. Plenty of physical stores did have plenty of copies to go around though.

From what I can gather the first and second pressing are pretty much identical, save for a few key differences that can help you easily tell the pressings apart. The first pressing is pressed on 180 gram vinyl and the second pressing is done on standard weight 140 gram vinyl. There is a hype sticker on the cover of the first press advertising 180 gram vinyl, and a hype sticker on the second pressing, which makes no mention of weight. The hype stickers are basically identical other than the first pressing saying “180 gram vinyl” and the second pressing mentioning the singles from the album. Both hype stickers list the members of the band.

Both pressing come with an art print, but I’m not sure if the art print is the same for both pressings. The art print is a lithograph. Pressing info for either pressing has not been released, and never expect it to be. No download code/card nor a CD copy of the album are included with the record. Which is a bit of a letdown. These days there is no excuse for any record to not come with either of those so people can have easy access to digital files. Especially for a major label release. But I can see why major labels would not include a CD or digital download, because it would potentially lead to more profit as people would be forced to either buy the CD or digital download in order to listen to the album on the go.

To further illustrate the profit theory, Reprise/Warner Bros. retail price on this was close to $25. Way too much for a single LP even with the gatefold jacket, heavy weight vinyl and art print, but without a digital download or CD. I purposely held off on buying this record waiting for the inevitable price drop, even after seeing Bull Moose’s erroneous tweet. It took a while, but I finally snagged a copy from the first pressing no less, for $10 shipped off ebay in late August 2016. Since this was re-pressed it might be difficult to find this for well below retail price, especially a copy from the first pressing. There will almost certainly be flippers for copies of the first pressing now, because like I stated above physical stores and even ebay and discogs are littered with copies from the first pressing.

As for as I can tell this blog is the only place to post photos of the gatefold jacket (in its entirety, in one image) and art print (at least vinyl version. CD comes with same art print) that comes with this record.


After having the worst Record Store Day (RSD) ever last year, where I missed out on getting the most stuff on my list than ever before, I decided to head over to my store earlier than I ever have. Prior to last year the most I’ve ever missed out on getting from my local store was one thing, whereas I usually get everything on my list with ease after lining up 3 hours max before opening. But last year I missed out on 3, and I wasn’t sure if it was just because the line formed earlier at my store (I was out of state in 2014 and couldn’t see how the line formed) for some reason or simply because Deja Entendu was being re-pressed. It turned out to be the later as I could have gotten on line by 3 a.m. (which is still hours earlier than my norm) instead of midnight and been fine. But I wasn’t going to complain about being eighth in line, my best position to date, as I slept for those 3 hours anyway.

With that out of the way here is the Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers live album entitled Kiss My Amps Live Vol. 2. It seems every year there is either a Tom Petty or Bruce Springsteen release(s) for RSD, some years even both. There was a whopping 7,500 copies pressed of this LP, all on 180 gram black vinyl. There is no insert or hand numbering like with the first Kiss My Amps Live RSD release from a few years back. No download code is included either, which sadly is a running trend with majority f RSD releases this year. Nothing I bought this year had a download card/code, no matter the label releasing it. The only thing that did was the Nirvana Tribute comp released by Robotic Empire, and that wasn’t an official RSD release.

This Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers release is about as no frills as you can get, especially by RSD standards as they love to include useless exclusive extras (that only drive up the cost) with many releases to get more people interested and turning out to participate in RSD. But at least this isn’t an unnecessary re-issue with an inflated price tag to capitalize on RSD (I’m looking at you Doghouse with that All-American Rejects Move Along re-press), there are previously unreleased songs on this release. Granted they’re all live version and some are even covers.
Here is the track listing:

Side A

  1. So You Want to Be a Rock N Roll Star (Live Beacon Theatre)
  2.  I’m Not (You’re Steppin Stone)  (Live Beacon Theatre)
  3.  Love is a Long Road (Live Fonda Theatre)
  4.  Two Gunslingers (Live Beacon Theatre)
  5.  When a Kid Goes Bad (Live Fonda Theatre)
  6.  Willin’ (Live Fonda Theatre)

Side B

  1. The Best of Everything (Live Fonda Theatre)
  2. Tweeter and the Monkey Man (Live Beacon Theatre)
  3.  Rebels (Live From Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival)
  4. A Woman In Love (It’s Not Me)  (Live From Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival)

But I wasn’t going to complain about being eighth in line, my best position to date, as I slept for those 3 hours anyway.

With that out of the way here is the Mudcrutch 7″. For those unfamiliar with the history of Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch was the first band formed by what would become the core of the Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers. The band never released anything other than a lone single before Tom Petty decided to pick up and leave for Los Angeles, taking some members of Mudcrutch with him including Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench. Mudcrutch eventually re-united in 2007 to release their debut album, and they have another album scheduled for release later this year, hence this RSD 7″.

“Trailer” was pressed on black vinyl limited to 5,000 copies. There seem to be some people out there who are confused, or can’t read, as they thought this 7″ was supposed to be on colored vinyl. Claiming the RSD site said colored vinyl, which it never did. The RSD site nor the official release list you could download as a PDF file never stated color vinyl for the Mudcrutch 7″ at any point in time. Retail price on this 7″ was around $9 depending on the store.

This Mudcrutch 7″ was a RSD release that flew under many people’s radar, and didn’t sell out on RSD itself and likely won’t for a long time. The aside featurs the title track, “Trailer” and the b-side  has “Beautiful World.” Both songs will later appear on Mudcrutch’s second album, which is simply titled 2. So if you somehow can’t find this 7″ it’s not the end of the world.

No download code is included, which sadly is a running trend with majority f RSD releases this year. Nothing I bought this year had a download card/code, no matter the label releasing it. The only thing that did was the Nirvana Tribute comp released by Robotic Empire, and that wasn’t an official RSD release. But with this 7″ it’s not as big a deal as is it with some of the other RSD releases I picked up this year considering these songs will later appear on a full length album.

The single for Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers’ “Here Comes My Girl” has a 7″ and 12″ pressing. Both are from the UK. Some people may consider there to be two separate pressings of the 7″ version, but it’s truly only one. The only difference between them is that one comes in a picture sleeve and the other copies come in a plain sleeve as they were meant to be promos. Both of the 7″ pressings have the same catalog number and track listing, which features “Don’t Bring Me Down” on the b-side.

The 12″ has different artwork than the 7″ version, and comes in a standard jacket rather than a thin paper picture sleeve many 12″ singles or maxi singles comes in. The 7″ comes with the Damn The Torpedoes album cover as the artwork, only in black and white and minus ‘Damn The Torpedoes’ printed on it. The 12″ has a picture of Tom Petty on the left hand side that takes up 3/4 of the cover, with a line separating the picture from title of the release, which is placed on the right hand side of the cover.

The track listing for the 12″ has two songs on the b-side; “Casa Dega” as track 1 and a live version of “Don’t Bring Me Down” as track 2. “Don’t Bring Me Down” was recorded in Boston in July 1978.

There are many different versions/pressings of the single for Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers’ “Refugee.” There is a U.S., UK, Canadian, German, Dutch, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, New Zealand, Brazilian and Mexican pressing, with multiple different pressings for those countries as well. To make things easier/harder to tell apart, they all, for the most part, have the same track listing, with “It’s Rainin’ Again” on the b-side. Only the Spanish and one of the UK pressings have a different song on the b-side, which is “Don’t Do Me Like That” for the Spanish pressing and “Insider” for the UK pressing They are released on two different labels as well, Backstreet Records and MCA Records. It’s about an even split for what label handles what geographic areas, with many of the singles being released in different years depending on when the label decided to release and/or promote Damn The Torpedoes in each particular country . All pressings except for one are pressed on black vinyl. The only pressing not done a black vinyl is one of the three UK pressings, which is pressed as a picture disc. The only way to tell them apart visually, which is always the easiest way, is to look at the covers.

The U.S. pressing, which is featured here, and the Canadian pressing, have the same artwork, which is a white background with a black and white picture of Tom Petty lighting a cigarette against a brick wall. The New Zealand and Mexico pressings comes in a plain sleeve. The Japanese pressing is the only one with Japanese writing on the cover, so it’s probably the easiest to tell apart. The Spanish pressing has a headshot of Tom Petty wearing sunglasses. The Brazilian pressing has a headshot of Tom Petty performing live; it’s a tight shot of him signing into a mic and has read lettering below the photo along the bottom of the sleeve. The non-picture disc UK pressing (there are three different ones) both have the same album art, which is a black and white photo of Tom Petty standing in front of a tank like building. The Dutch pressing utilizes the Damn The Torpedoes album cover, but the photo is cropped to only show Tom Petty from the chest up. The Italian pressing uses the Damn The Torpedoes album cover in its entirety, the only difference being ‘Damn The Torpedoes’ is removed from the cover and a white bar in the lower right corner where the single’s title is printed. The French pressing also uses the Damn The Torpedoes album cover in its entirety, with a diagonal white bar stretching across the middle of the cover, over Tom Petty’s chest, which is where the single’s title is printed. The font on the French pressing is much larger than on the Italian pressing

There are promo versions/pressing of the following pressings; U.S., Spanish, UK and Japanese. As mentioned above, there are three different UK pressings, the most of any country. One of the UK pressings is a picture disc with the song “Insider” on the b-side. A picture of Tom Petty wearing a green shirt under a black jacket performing live is printed on the picture disc. The UK pressings are both pressed on black vinyl and have the same album art, the only difference is the track listing. On one of the pressings the b-side track is “It’s Rainin’ Again” and on the other the b-side features “Insider.”

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers 7” single for “A Woman In Love (It’s Not Me)” off the album Hard Promises. This is the U.S. pressing, which was released by Backstreet Records. There is also a UK, German, Dutch and Japanese pressing of this 7” single, which were all released on MCA Records. The track listing for all the pressings is the same, with “Gator On The Lawn” on the b-side. They all come in a picture sleeve with the same except for the Japanese pressing, which has a picture of just Tom Petty wearing a leather jacket with some Japanese and English writing.
