Teenage Kicks - Call Me on the Phone b/w Right Behind You Baby

This 45 sat in the bin at Eastside Records for a long time before I picked it up. The only reason I bought it was because it is number 514 in a limited edition of 555. 45's are often limited to pressings of as few as 50, so this is by no means the rarest record I own. It's just numbered and it's near the end, so that's gotta be worth something, right?

The music on this 45 is pretty good. "Call Me on the Phone" is a Sonics style garage number. The saxophone in this band is a good call. It's a classic garage sound and yet very few modern garage bands go for it. The b-side "Right Behind You Baby" is a Cramps-ish rockabilly song. Both sides of this platter are worth a listen, but I'm still more interested in the sticker that says "Limited Edition #514 of 555."
