In the 1980s, the Ralph Records label issued a number of 7" samplers to promote their artists. These EP's carried the same slogan as the Ralph Records catalogues: "Buy Or Die".

A couple of weeks ago, I received a stack of 7" singles. Out of the blue. As a gift. Great stuff: Residents, Snakefinger, Chadbourne, ... and three fine "Buy Or Die" samplers !!

Here are the pictures of the "Buy Or Die" samplers.
