Trolling MySpace today, the Press found an open letter from late Poor Dumb Bastards guitarist Hunter Ward’s family to his friends and acquaintances regarding the fate of his prodigious vinyl collection. It’s after the jump. – Chris Gray
For those of you who have expressed an interest in Hunter's vinyl collection, here's the scoop:
We have decided to turn Hunter's enormous vinyl collection over to Vinal Edge Records for sale either in the store or on Ebay. Anything that is worth over $50 will be put on Ebay. Everything else will be sold through the store.
HERE'S THE IMPORTANT PART! Please do not be calling Vinal Edge asking when the records will be available. It will take several weeks to inventory and determine the value of over 20 cases of records that we have turned over. Please be patient with them. We will post another bulletin letting everyone know when the items will be for sale whether by Ebay or by direct sale through the store.
Also, Chris from Vinal Edge will be responsible for the sale of all of Hunter's incredible collection of T-shirts. Again, we will let you know when they are available.
Thanks for both your interest and for your patience. Please feel free to repost as there are many who have expressed an interest and we need to let everyone know what's going on.
