CHEAP TRICK – “FOUND ALL THE PARTS” VINYL EP FROM 1980… I FOUND!


CHEAP TRICK – Earlier this Summer, I took the family on one of our trips to Amish Country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. As I have stated in past posts… I like to hunt for Rock ‘N’ Roll, Hard Rock and Heavy Metal memorabilia and/or music anywhere I go. Antique stores are around Lancaster County, that is for certain. One particular stop, to a second hand memory shop uncovered the Cheap Trick – Found All The Parts EP from 1980, on vinyl. The asking price was $10… sold!

The total condition of this Cheap Trick EP’s album jacket and vinyl is mint, as if it was just opened from it’s original plastic factory wrap. (Check out my pics below of this EP I found). On the backside of this EP, at the top left corner, there is a gold embossed stamp that reads: “For Promotion Only, Ownership Reserved By CBS, Sale Is Unlawful”. Cool… a promo copy. The only bugaboo about my finding this Cheap Trick EP is that it does not have the bonus promotional 7″ single – Everything Works If You Let It. That is now a Cheap Trick 45 rpm that I will be on the look-out for.

I have seen this Cheap Trick EP for sale on Amazon ranging from $25 to $91 in new/sealed condition with the 7″ single included. I have also seen the used versions of this EP on Amazon ranging from $6 to $58. (Used conditions do vary though). The highest priced used copies don’t specify if the 7″ single comes with it, yet a couple of the lower priced used copies do state the 7″ single comes with the EP. Go figure. Nonetheless, I’m pleased that I found this used promo copy of Cheap Trick – Found All The Parts EP for $10, especially since the condition is so mint and I’ve never owned it before.

  1. Very cool find, I used to have a copy of this on vinyl and I traded it to my friend for a bootleg CD version of this EP. I had no idea it was worth so much.

    My copy I am sure would not fetch as much since it was scratched and played it often.

      It’s a never ending experience… finding out what we used to own on vinyl then and what it’s worth now! My list of past vinyl is probably half replaced now, due to my Metal roaming about. Usually I find the vinyl for 50 cents to a dollar each. :)

      It’s funny… there is a block logo on the front right corner of this EP – “NU DISk”. I guess this was supposed to “wow” us all back in 1980! Hey… I got a “NU DISK”! My has technology changed.
