In 1988 or '89, some Spanish magazine named (I believe) Munster published an issue containing a split 7", featuring Sonic Youth doing a live version of 'Silver Rocket' on the A-side, and two numbers by the Miracle Workers on the flip'. Does anyone out there possess a copy of this rarity? Would he or she be so kind as to rip and upload for the sake of all us die-hards...?

In fact, a copy of this rarity sold on ebay this past weekend for around $31 U.S. The winner/buyer was someone from France calling him- or herself stefb1975. If we all sent this person a message begging him or her to make a fresh rip of this unplayed copy and upload it to the forum or SoulSeek or someplace, s/he just might oblige and supply us a (seemingly) rare treat. I've already done the bit, myself, sending a message just after I'd awakened to discover I'd been outbid.

Incidently, are you on this forum, Stefb1975...?

wow. I was perusing SY 7"s on ebay this weekend, and missed this. I've never seen this, nor heard of it. That cover is amazing. I don't even want a rip... I want that freaking 7" !!!

Yes, that's the one. I was in dire need of sleep (went to bed around 4:30 AM, leaving a maximum bid of only $23 on the board), so I wasn't up in time to slam home a last-second bid when it ended around 8 or 8:30 AM.

But anyway, if someone here at the forum has a decent copy, do us a favour: please rip and share.

Actually, that gives me a pretty good idea for a thread in itself: a 'Sonic Youth: Legit Rarities Wanted for Upload' thread. There are about half a dozen rare 7- or 12-inch pieces, released legitmately, that a helluva lot of fans can never seem to find even MP3 copies of, let alone the actual records; and when they do turn up on ebay or wherever, they usually have to behave like cutthroat arseholes, bidding nastily against dozens of other fans, and paying an arm and a leg for them in the end.

Oh right. I don't bid nastily then. I input bid with right hand, give "wanker" sign to other bidders with left.

Yup. Fair enough in the brutal world of free enterprise.

Just stumbled across this thread - I've got a copy of this, which until about 10 minutes ago had never been separated from the mag. Sadly, I've got no way of ripping it at present.
It's not a great quality recording, and pretty standard run-through of the song really. Thurston introduces it by saying something like "Hear this - we're rocking, to the mooood.." - dunno if that'll ring any bells for someone with an encyclopedic knowlege of live shows from the era...

Actually, the fellow who won the copy on ebay (Stefb1975) was nice enough to rip and upload it to SoulSeek, and then e-mail to inform me of it. However, the version of SoulSeek that he's using mustn't match up with either of the two versions (156 and 157 Test 8) that I have installed, for I haven't come across it yet. Maybe he's using Test 12. Whatever the case, check with your version of SoulSeek, and if you come across it, nab it (and The Miracle Workers' b-side), and share it with the rest of the forum via Mediafire or something.

the guy is sharing them on soulseek indeed, under the same username.
he has ripped them as 128 kb mp3 and high bitrate ogg files; i'll upload them both in here.
