So, I had always thought that the Hepcat Nigel 7″ existed solely on black vinyl. It is rare enough in that format. However, after I posted my Hepcat discography, someone clued me in to another version on clear vinyl. That message board discussion also led to the revelation that there were only 25 copies made on clear vinyl, and most of those were given to the band. I cannot confirm that part, but I can vouch for the fact that the clear vinyl version is excessively scarce. That said, the stars seem to have aligned, and I was able to get myself a copy. This one is either a record collector’s dream and nightmare. Thanks to Lawless for the heads up. The value I have placed on it is entirely speculative, but I am ballparking it at $80-100.
Now we’re cookin’…just like that, Hepcat’s part of the discography site is now live! That was much easier. I need to do a few more like this…four albums, four singles, five comps. Good stuff. Enjoy. The “diskagraphies” are underway…
