Sun Ra - I'm Gonna Unmask the Batman b/w The Perfect Man (Saturn, 7" 45)
Both sides in M- condition.

Rare `83 issue of amazing double-sider originally released in 1974 (that pressing barely exists.) Both sides of this one really rock out! Check my other listings this week for 3 more Sun Ra 45s. If you haven't heard these recordings, they are compiled on the Sun Ra Singles 2cd set on Evidence records. Sound samples should be available somewhere online...

These mid-80s Saturn 45s frequently had oversize printed labels stuck over blank(?) labels. This is one such example.

Some info from the online Ra discography:
Saturn 9/7474 (reissue, 1983)
matrix 7474/52473B

Please note that eBay's shipping calculator is frequently wrong. To avoid overpaying for postage DO NOT SEND PAYMENT UNTIL I SEND YOU AN INVOICE VIA EBAY (not that invoice that eBay so thoughtfully sends out automatically, but the one from me, with a personal message from me and correct shipping costs for your location) Thanks!

Shipping charges:
USA: $7.00 priority/ins. / $4.00 media mail/ins.
Europe/Asia: $7.00 first class

NO eChecks, please!! It takes an extra week for eCheck payments to reach my paypal account - this also means your shipment will delayed.
I accept PayPal payments via PayPal balance, bank account or credit/debit card only! Thanks for understanding.

Payment is due within 3 DAYS of winning. That's plenty of time in the age of PayPal, yes?

I do not end auctions early. Please do not ask.

***RETURNS accepted, all ITEMS guaranteed, but I do not refund ANY shipping costs (from me or back to me,) as postage money goes to the U.S. Postal Service, not to me! If I examine the returned item and conclude that there has been a genuine grading error on my part, I will make an exception, but in general I do not refund shipping costs. Please do not bid if this is not acceptable to you, and please email me with any questions/concerns/requirements about records BEFORE YOU BID. Thank you.***

SPECIAL REQUESTS RE: SHIPPING/PACKING AND SO ON: If you insist on having your package reinforced with vulcanized rubber, blessed by Tibetan monks, shipped across the desert via camel, etc. etc. then please contact me BEFORE YOU BID and I'll see what I can do. Thanks!
