For the second time I am double dipping. A second post on the same record. But hey, it's a good one. The first post I did on "The Beat Goes On" was for the premature Final Shows version. This time we go back to April 9, 2006 for the record release.
Blacklisted went all out for their record release cover for "The Beat Goes On". Keeping with their Philadelphia/Rocky theme that they had with their 7" demo release of the "Greatest Challenge" cover, we get some more Italian Stallion pride.
The only down side was that the covers were screened and they were definitely still wet when handled. There are quite a few smudge marks and fingerprints! I think mine was still tacky when I got it years ago.
They used the red vinyl from the first press and printed up a total of 50 for the show. These are still a pretty hot commodity on ebay and trade lists, but I think it is totally worth the price just to have a piece of Sly Stallone in my record collection.
Welcome to my blog on collecting hardcore and punk rock vinyl. By no means do I claim to have the biggest, best or most complete collection.
I just love collecting hardcore/punk records and have since I was a teenager. I now have a wife and two kids, a mortgage, car payments and a downtown suit and tie guy job. Still, when I can I try to keep up with the hardcore scene, the bands and labels that keep me feeling young when everything else in this world tells me I am not! I will try to post every few days and hopefully like minded people can have fun with the posts and with your participation, start some discussions. Thanks for looking and tell all your friends!
