Oh for sure. I am more Pro-Sonny than anyone here, the dude is my inspiration for becoming an artist. I may have been wrong in my comment but I'm just trying to say, don't spend money you can't afford. To those that can afford to buy these, all the power to you. I've been young and frivolous and it puts you in a shitty situation.

He's still doing artwork for a bunch of other artists tho, and I know Im about to buy some throw pillows etc for my skull, etc motif in my front room. I'd venture to guess he's not living like the creed frontman or anything. Also, I'm sure he has/had at least one copy of each test pressing and probly more official pressings but there is absolutely no way that he got ALL test pressings from a given record. I'm sure Omar has one, GSL has one, cedric has one etc. Sonny was just there and wanted them so he got some. (if I had to guess at least).

But me, with a steady paycheck, no kids, no debt, and no loans; I like to buy fun things like records to play and to collect and good food and good beer and fun trips in nice hotels. Can't go wrong! I don't need too much other stuff except like a new phone and new tires every 4 years. But on the other hand definitely don't go into debt buying test presses u can't afford.

Ahem, Sonny was the mastermind behind GSL.  :smile:

Still I'm sure he didn't keep every one from each of the test pressing sets tho. u dont think some of the artists wanted one?

Edit: kitt, where was that posted originally? Or did sk just email out some friends with it?

Especially the drunkship 12" TP.

If this happened a few years ago I would've been balls deep into Sonny's collection. Being a grown up sucks  :sad:

#TMVPorn

 

 

Sadly I have been too much of a lazy ass to take a pic of my collection.  Its big...  My partner is out this weekend so maybe while i have downtime i'll finally get around to it.  Basically, I have almost EVERYTHING except for GitD Frances set and Amputechture slipmat and 7" black vinyl Wax promo.  I think i have everything else including omar except for Blue Minor Cuts..., Black Apocalypse and a white cover version of the offlabel Vicarious Atonement.    Its easier to list what i don't have.  I have lots of doubles too (not amp, deloused, or frances sadly).  Even have the 3 GSL singles (Ikey, Cedric, Omar) and Cedric's Fall on Deaf Ears 7" from way back.

 

I'll do my best to make some TMVPorn for yall this weekend.

I have the picture disc, green single, misspress single on black, and GitD single (because apparently someone broke up the set or something????? There's a dude on discogs selling the GitD set without the single just the frances album and red cover and he totally needs to sell it to me!!!)
