A 3/4 set of the 1964 15-inch store display bobblehead dolls (Ringo was missing) from an antique/junk store with an unusually good Beatles trove (which I bought the remainder of).

In 1965 when I was 11 years old, I got the unique Danish Greatest Hits album named "The Beatles Hottest Hits" (containing all the singles and the LTS EP that weren't on lps at that time - I am sure you know it from Ebbetts - Eskimo dresses and very great sounding vinyl). In 1968 I swapped it for a Jimi Hendrix album, thinking the Beatles were outdated. Many years later I understood what sin I had committed, and I had to get it back in my collection. Today I own 3 copies (one very close to mint) of this album, and it is always very special to put it on the turntable.

How’s this for stupid. I traded an unused ticket to the Beatles last concert at Candlestick to Joe Pope for the bootleg 45 Love of the Loved, the early one with the black and white sleeve. If that’s not bad enough, after that I traded him a second state butcher cover for 2 sets of the Deccagone 45’s.
At the time I had 5 unused Candlestick tickets, and I think the second state butcher covers were going for $50-$75.

Wish I hadn't gotten rid of my first boot LP I ever bought, which was "The New 21" by Melvin Records. I eventually got everything on it in better quality later--except of course the funny little sped-up inner groove about Joel Glazier being dead.

It was a weird compilation of stuff, but God I loved it.

I'd recreate it digitally myself if only I had that inner groove!

If you put in a request I'm sure it will magically appear!
