In addition to a caricature, I culled my archives for a few rarities and came up with 2 of my hardest-to-find label releases--choose one of these: JT IV--"Cosmic Lightning": My first co-label release with Drag City, criminally out-of-print loner-punk that now fetches over a $100, as seen here: http://tinyurl.com/3d7csjk. Or, Josephine Foster-"All The Leaves Are Gone" My final co-release with Eclipse records, strictly limited to 500 copies now fetches over $100 as well, as seen here: http://tinyurl.com/3jbfeog
