Rocket From the Crypt fans can snag several new limited-edition vinyl singles that were released on each night of their recent UK/Ireland tour, covering tracks by bands from each city. Each night, one single-sided seven-inch disc was made available at their merchandise stall, many featuring San Diego guest players such as Ben Moore and Joe Guevara.
Though most of the singles have surfaced online as MP3s, collectors are already paying up to 50 bucks apiece for vinyl editions such as “My Blues Away” (Boomtown Rats), “Shy Fly” (Status Quo), “Baker Street” (Gerry Rafferty), “Love Is Lies” (Buzzcocks), “In League with Satan” (Venom), and Red Lorry Yellow Lorry’s “Spinning Round.”
