Unique Roustabout Single Sold
Collectors from all over the world have placed not less than 90 bids on a unique "Roustabout" single. This 45 rpm record on the Paramount Pictures label seems to be an alternative take. The eBay-seller even added an excerpt of both sides (click link below).
However, completely new it is not. On this promo is the master of Roustabout, on the other side is an alternate take of Roustabout. Don't be affraid you missed it because this alternate take is released on LP Memphis Tennesse in 1982 (Audifon 67670). But it's still a highly sought after release. It sold for a little over 1,100 $US.
