It had been a while since I'd spent any time on eBay. After dropping some big money for the first pressing of Paranoid, I swore off the evil temptress, and stayed clear of eBay. A month and a half went by, and I thought that I'd do a quick search to see what React! rarities were out there. While scrolling through some auctions that a seller had, I stumbled upon a test pressing of the Overload LP from Lights Out.
Fuck. This changes everything. I was no longer just casually browsing auctions...now I had a mission, and I set out to win this test press at any cost.
There is something special about this album. It sinks it's hooks in me, and does not let go. This album is almost 10 years old, and yet still whenever I listen to it, I can't just play it once...as soon as it is done playing, I've got to queue it up again.
I knew that finding this test press on eBay was a rare occasion, and this was an opportunity that I planned to take full advantage of. It feels great to finally have a copy of this. Limited to 24.
1,000 posts, and eight years in on this blog. "I could have given up and gone out like you, but now that's just not me".
Complete collection for the Overload LP. Now is probably a good time to start chasing the Lights Out 7 inch.
