Just citing the "Godfather of Punk": "I'm bored... I'm the chairman of the bored!"

This has to be my 4th account or something, the first one being barryblunt, if I'm correct. I had already been buying and selling records by that name at ebay in its very early days like from 1999 on. Later I went by the name CHAIRMANoftheBORED, an account that I have closed accidentially. If you have any questions concerning any of my submissions just drop me a line!

My Steckenpferd is US Hip Hop and Punk Rock/Hardcore music, but I'm versatile: I love a lot of other stuff like classic Honky Tonk and Bakersfield Country, Rockabilly, Surf, Garage, Psychedelic (not Progressive), 60s & 70s Soul, some Post Disco (not Disco), Funk / Breaks, Thrash and sometimes even some electronic stuff. Music with english or german lyrics is what I prefer.

I collect vinyl only. Usually the genuine 1st retail pressing is what I'm after. I like the idea to own the same version of a record that the artist might have been given by his label at the day of its release, so to say.

Don't bother me with any $%§&'#* bootlegs!!!

Correct me if I'm wrong but it occurs to me that the track titles of "Up In Frisco" and "N.O.H. Mafia" have been mixed up on the releases.
"N.O.H. Mafia" is 4:03 long and "Up In Frisco" is the 3:47 long track.

Payday promo cat#s start with a PR, never with a BR. This has to be a bootleg. Maybe some clever guy has scratched in a F/W to confuse collectors and cash in.

This might be the first pressing, since the telephone area code was not necessary before it was distributed nationwide.

That's exactly what I have been thinking since I have heard this track first. This seems to use a sampler! Most likely '87 or even later... Check out how the other early Cheryl Records releases tell us the adress, this does not.

What exactly is the idea behind a 5x7" set?
- It does not sound better
- You have to flip the vinyl after every song
- you can't cut/scratch/mix a 7" especially a 45rpm record properly
- it's expensive
