    Johnny Burnette and the Rock "N" Roll Trio - S/T Mono LP Coral 57080 (1956) Condition: Cover MT 9/ Record NM 8 This extremely rare disk is quite possibly one of the most potent expressions of pure, primal rock and roll. The Burnette brothers, Johnny and Dorsey, were early movers and shakers on the Memphis scene and close friends with a young Elvis, who payed close attention to the hard driving rock sounds by the trio and their powerhouse lead guitarist, Paul Burlison. Elvis wasn't the only one taking notes; this album's "Train Kept A-Rollin'" was covered by everyone from Jimmy Page and his pre-Led Zeppelin band, the Yardbirds to Aerosmith (not to mention about a thousand garage bands along the way). While the LP sold relatively few copies on this original release, the influence on a generation of rockers is unmistakable. This copy is still housed in its opened original shrink wrap which still covers 90% of the cover. The record itself shows a few surface lines but shows great luster and plays clean and clear. This is among the finest copies of this landmark album currently known to exist, and will surely be a source of pride for one lucky bidder.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
