    The Swans - "Love Will Tear Us Apart" acoustic version. I used to have the 12" EP (on red vinyl!)

    I don't know what happened to it.:sad:

    When at the right place to look, I try to find Crows' first and second albums....( the lead guy died after the second album hit ).

    One had " Evil Woman ( Don't Play Your Games With Me )"

    Two had a song, " Cottage Cheese " on it, an instrumental that had a short life on the radio hits.

    And... maybe Smith, " A Group Called Smith" that had a hit, a cover of " Baby it's You ", on it.

    i've been pretty lucky finding some out of print stuff online through blogs or torrents.

    but some of the groups, such as some that you mentioned Ponti, might be hard to find, even online just because some of them are pretty obscure.

    but i keep looking, 'cause i never know what i might dig up.

    i've found stuff by accident, or i've found stuff by groups from the 60's and 70's i've never heard of and they ended up being pretty darn good.

    Yeah, some of this stuff was already obscure when it was released.

    GEMM has been pretty good as is cduniverse.com I've found a lot of stuff on there that amazon doesn't have.

    Of course, another good place is a used music store like you'd find outside any major university/college area.
