Want to own a piece of music history? Suburban Home Records is selling off a number of rare -- essentially unique, actually -- vinyl test pressings they've amassed over the years. If you aren't familiar with the concept, test pressings are basically just what the name says, a limited run (usually less than five copies, could be as few as one) pressing of the record intended to test the quality. As such, they are inherently rare and, for collectors and diehard fans, inherently more valuable.
Suburban's collection spans acts that have worked with the label such as Drag the River, Portugal the Man, Minus the Bear, Every Time I Die, Norma Jean and many more. They're keeping it simple, too -- if you see something you want, make a fair offer and it's yours. That's hard to argue with. Click through to see the complete list and details on how to make an offer.
E-mail Virgil@suburbanhomerecords.com with "TEST PRESSING OFFER" as the subject line to make your offer. And hurry, he's only taking bids for a week -- a week that started a few days ago.
