Vinyl Ep Album Cover 1984Temptation

Released August, 1984, Shaolin Records, Santa Monica, California.

This is the vinyl EP album that launched Shaolin Records in the summer of 1984. I was in our storage unit last week and saw the last couple boxes of this release, unopened, 25 records in each box, total = 224. The last ones.

THE RICH in 1984I'm gonna sit on them and wait until they are auctionable. Coyote's been setting aside broken drumsticks the last year. He dates them and signs them, then tosses them into storage. There are a couple of drum heads he autographed with a lot of blood on them. During Coyote's first couple years as a drummer he hit his knuckles on the snare drum rim a lot of times. Even he did put a bandaid on, he waited until the end of the song.

I noticed that a European perfume company/adult accessories company used our album design from the TEMPTATION album for their product catalog. That was tacky. Perhaps if they'd pay me some royalties for graphic design and copyright infringement--I'd feel better.

As for that company that has been bootlegging these albums in Europe... they still haven't returned my emails and their distributor said they'd check into it...

THE RICH in 1980

Recorded at Capitol Records and Cherokee Studios in Hollywood, California.
