LATERALUS VINYL SIGNED **RARE** MINT CONDITION

2

THIS IS A SUPER RARE ORIGINAL LATERALUS VINYL DOUBLE LP RELEASED FROM TOOLARMY.COM. IT IS IN MINT CONDITION AND 1 OF ONLY 300 ISSUED WITH THE BANDS ORIGINAL SIGNATURES. THIS WAS THE 1ST BATCH SHIPPED OUT, SINCE THE BAND RELEASED AN INITIAL 150 WITH SIGNATURES, BEFORE ADDING ANOTHER 150 FOR RELEASE I BELIEVE A MONTH OR SO LATER. I HAVE INCLUDED A PICTURE WHICH SHOWS THE BOX WITH THE TOOLARMY ADDRESS AND THE POSTAGE DATE SHOWING THE ORIGINAL RELEASE AND SHIPPING DATE. THIS IS A HIGH QUALITY SET WHERE THE SIGNATURES WERE DONE BEFORE GROOVING THE RECORDS, WHICH PRESERVES THE SIGNATURES, UNLIKE VINYLS SIGNED AFTER THE RECORD HAS BEEN GROOVED. THESE DISCS HAVE NEVER BEEN PLAYED OR TOUCHED ON THE FACES. NO FINGERPRINTS, NO SCRATCHES, NO NOTHING!! DEFINITELY A TOOL COLLECTORS MUST HAVE!!

This is what I put on ebay:

(Only 5,000 copies)
Released in 1996
Side A: 1. Cesaro Summability (1:26) 2. Aenima (6:40)
Side B: 1. Third Eye (13:47)

Signed by Maynard James Keenan (Vocals), Danny Carey (Drums), Adam Jones (Guitar), and Justin Chancellor (Bass). Chancellor was not the bassist on the recording; he replaced Paul D’Amour prior to the tour.

I am no bootlegger! I am a genuine Tool fan—I have been for ages—but I move frequently, and I am worried that something will happen to this gem in all my moving about. To the buyer of this LP, I would be happy to tell you its history! It has always been in my possession, and I have only played it once—today—to make sure it is still in good condition. Good news: it is perfect! Man, the tracks sound amazing!!

Hope you will consider becoming the caretaker of this treasure!

This is an extremely rare item. You are bidding on a promotional-only, 3-track 12″ vinyl picture disc given out with Tool’s “Aenima”. The picture disc comes in a clear plastic sleeve and both sides are pictured below. I have never played this record, as usually picture discs have poorer sound quality than regular pressed vinyl. You should keep in mind that you are bidding on this item for it’s obscurity, rarity and for the picture disc (vs. the sound quality)…

For Promotional Use Only

Side A: 1. Cesaro Summability (1:26) 2. Aenima (6:40)

Side B: 1. Third Eye (13:47)

produced by Tool and David Bottrill

Tool – Signed Lateralus Vinyl (Purchased on ToolArmy)

0

One of 250 copies of the Lateralus vinyl signed by each member of the group and sold through ToolArmy. Each side is signed and/or drawn on by a different member, making each copy unique.

Following the release of the vinyl, these were sold in batches of 100, 100, and 50 via the group’s membership-based site (this was one of the first 100). Each block sold out almost immediately, and if you’re looking at this, you already know how rare it is for them to be re-sold, especially by original owners.

Luckily for you, I’ve decided to finally part with mine. They were opened, viewed, then immediately closed back up and stored on a record shelf for the past 4+ years. Opening them up to take these pictures is the 2nd time the sleeves have even been removed. They’ve never been played, scratched, bent, or…you get the idea.

People are selling counterfeits of these. The real ones were signed by Tool before the records were pressed. Thus, the signatures are underneath the grooves. Counterfeits are signed on top of the grooves. I’ve included a picture [from the item I’m selling] that illustrates this. If you want another specific picture, let me know and I’ll add it here or elsewhere.
