Records With History And Future

One of the harder to find records of REAPER RECORDS has landed in my mailbox today. I’m actually looking for this one since fall 2008, when I saw it first on eBay in Japan. I sometimes surprise myself, when realizing how I can keep memorizing records and their numbers made. This one is a good example that.
It’s actually since Fall 2008 that I saw this record listed somewhere. Recently I saw it in someones tradelist but this dude was trying to scam me out of money by asking way too much for it, but I didn’t buy it because of that. And when I saw it listed on eBay two weeks ago, I immediately knew I needed to get it.

I’m way too much ahead of my game to let someone scam me out on a record nowadays. My exact words to the person who asked way too much for it were; on eBay you’d never get such a price for it. So I waited. And luckily it appeared soon after that. I made my bid 6 days before auction’s end and there were some bids increasing the price a bit, but I still won it. I’m not someone to be out on the cheapest possible prices. Won’t get into that game.

Anyway the record isn’t such a big deal, but I’m glad to have it (finally). It’s Reaper Records #14 and out of 100 copies, which in Reaper-terms isn’t so limited; certainly for a long forgotten band as FORFEIT. Just a lot of personal frenzy around it I guess.

Don’t know what the cover is supposed to say, looks like a deformed face of a man with a pea-cock picking in his head from above… This one isn’t mentioned on the Reaper Records website, but I think with this addition my collection of this title is -except the test pressing- complete now!
