Yes, I should have said that.

However, I find it interesting that there isn't a reference to where it came from....?

I got a shirt from "In Heat" tour on eBay last spring for about 5 bucks.

I feel pretty certain that "vintage" In Heat shirt on eBay is a modern knock-off. I went to two different shows on that tour, and I sure as heck don't remember seeing anything that looks like that. I could be mistaken, but I paid pretty good attention in those days. Anyone else have any insight into this?

The In Heat shirt I got last year was a used, worn t-shirt, gray with red "Romantics" logo on the front and the band's group portrait on the back in black.  I'm sure that was an old one.

I sure don't ever remember seeing that new eBay "deadstock"one before (and it's ugly as hell).

Well, my original In Heat shirt has the guys in B/W face (album cover) on a white background. I don't remember there being an alternative and especially not gray. I can only remember 3 colors being used by the band...black, white and red...

IMHO,
Linda

Yeah, there were gray ones for sure. I still have mine, along with a black sleeveless one from that tour as well.

I still have my original black t-shirt from a pre-In Heat tour that just has the white "Romantics" logo on the front, nothing on the back.  I also have a light pink sleeveless t-shirt from around the In Heat era that has a colorful confetti design all over it and a big diagonal "Romantics" logo across the front.  It's got a lotta aqua on it, too.  Needless to say, that one didn't get much wear... Undecided...it must have looked pretty good on the vendor's rack at the show when I had a beer buzz on, though.

Look at this item:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=306&item=4065842867&rd=1

Live 1984 on vinyl?  Does anyone know anything about this?

Do you think it might be the King Biscuit recording?

edit:  I see the recording is labeled KBFH...maybe this was a radio show recording used at a radio station?

Brew, I have that same pink shirt, only mine isn't sleeveless.  I do remember that at that particular show(sometime around 1986 I think) there were no other shirts available, and they only had it in one size.

I own a original KBFH board copy tape from this show as well as a first edition vinyl copy too. My vinyl copy came with the same paperwork shown...However,
Here is the big question for the seller...who is on side 2 of the original KBFH pressing and it is not the Romantics.

i am a little suspicious of this item.  the seller has more available with different bands on them.  check out their other auctions.  in my opinion, this is something homemade.

Are you kidding...Platinum Blonde?  If these were homemade, why would this dude make Platinum Blonde?  Or the Romantics, for that matter?

I'm pretty sure the cup is the real deal; I've seen them before on eBay over the years from a variety of sellers. I think it was a promotion that only happened in select parts of the country and didn't particularly catch on. But did you see the shipping charge? For a PLASTIC CUP?

OK, here's the vintage gray t-shirt I was talking about...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=28022&item=8166395089&rd=1

I got mine on eBay last year for about $5 and I wear it all the time.

This is likely a vinyl radio copy of the King Biscuit Flower Hour show recorded in San Antonio.

There is a Trouser Press magazine for sale on Ebay featuring an article about the Romantics.  I got a copy of this years ago, and it is a very interesting article on the band, from the early days.  There is also a kool picture of the band.  It would be a good pickup for any Romantics Fanatic.
