It seems that an incredibly rare Sex Pistols 7″ has been discovered and can be had … for the right price.
According to Discogs, the UK Punk band’s God Save The Queen is now listed exclusively in the Discogs Marketplace by Psychotron Records (UK) owner Pete Bonner for £15,000 ($19693.69). Only nine copies of the A&M Records 7″ release are thought to exist. Late last year, this same release variant sold for USD $14,690 in the Discogs Marketplace substantiating the £15,000 asking price by Bonner.
Sex Pistols originally signed to A&M Records, and 25,000 copies of “God Save The Queen” were pressed before A&M’s Herb Alpert reportedly destroyed the Sex Pistols’ recording contract six days after signing.
The A&M Records pressing of “God Save The Queen” remains one of the rarest punk records of all-time. Genuine originals have the serrated anti-slip necklace and 7284 written twice on the B-Side runout, one above the other. Also of note, runout (Side A label) is AMS 7284A and runout (Side B label) is AMS 7284B.
