q u o t e   "I don't have a thrilling story, but I think it's ok.  For years, I would always joke with my brother about owning a copy of Love Buzz.  The only chance we had to see it was to check ebay.  Every couple of months I would show him an auction.  He would just stare at the screen in disbelief.  (I'd get it for him but it always sold in the $700-$900 range.  A bit too high for me.)  Anyway, this past February I saw it being offered on ebay again.  I put in a bid just as a joke, but suprisingly it held for a while.  I told my father, and he said 'I don't care what you have to do, just get that record!'  I put in a another bid, and sure enough I won the auction.  It took about a month to get, (we were a bit slow with payment).  But after an elaborate schedule of Fedex pickups drop offs, and deliveries.  We finally had it.  My brother drove us nuts asking about it ('did it come yet?' tommorow?  It was coming all the way from Seattle!)  He left for his classess in the morning when he spotted it in our mailbox.  Finally!  He was really moved when he saw it.  It is such a significant piece to a Nirvana fan.  I like the group, but my brother is so much more dedicated.  Of course he played it.  Suprisingly, it sounded unbelievably crisp and clear.  100% mint!  What's truly special about this record, is that it will be in our family forever.  We finally own an heirloom!"
