My buddy Aram from Champion, Betrayed, The First Step and React! Records was back in Calgary for Christmas and we were able to meet up for coffee last night before he had to head back to Vancouver. Anyone who knows Aram, knows him as a generous guy and he was like freaking Santa Claus when he sold this little gem to me. Hand delivered and everything. The only thing missing were reindeer!
Promises Kept - Warehouse Edition of the reject press/record release white vinyl. Out of 12. Yeah that's right - 12!
With the exception of the blank label misprint on Come Out Swinging, this is by far the rarest Champion record. I didn't even know it existed until Aram told me about it last week. Needless to say I am psyched!
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!
