It’s true to say we have a resident The Damned fanatic and collector amongst our team of buyers here at eil.com but even he has a few odd gaps in his collection. We’ve secured a variety of vinyl, CDs and paper goods that are worth exploring to fill gaps in your own collections.
We’ll be adding to the stocks over coming days, so be sure to return to the store here regularly…
THE DAMNED New Rose (Rare original 1977 French 2-track Skydog label wide centre vinyl 7″ single also including Help. Complete with the original unique black & white ‘group shot’ picture sleeve designed by Bruno Caruso – this sleeve design is completely different to any other issue. The sleeve has some light foxing and the vinyl has just a few light scuffs, but remains in excellent condition. Overall an excellent copy of this now hard to find release DAM001)
THE DAMNED Don’t Cry Wolf (Rare 1977 Belgian wide centred <b><font color=gold>YELLOW VINYL</b></font> 7″ single, also featuring One Way Love, manufactured in very limited numbers.
