SILENT AUCTION BENEFIT FOR NORTON RECORDS
(VICTIMS OF HURRICANE SANDY)

Hurricane Sandy left many victims in its wake. The Norton Records’ warehouse in Brooklyn was flooded, and most of their stock was destroyed, or severely damaged, as was described on the Nortonville blog in this Huffington Post article.


SILENT AUCTION FOR SIGNED DAVE REYNOLDS PHOTO AND SIGNED NORTON “CRAZY DATE” 45 OPEN TO BIDS WORLDWIDE FROM 12PM CST DECEMBER 11 to 12 PM CST DECEMBER 18, 2012.

FINAL WINNING BID is $235.  Congratulations to the winner, thank you to everyone who participated!!

Dave penned the cult classic rock n’ roll song, “Crazy Date” with his sister. The original 45 is insanely rare, recorded at the Scott Recording Laboratory near the Tuscaloosa Airport in 1959.

As they have done for so much other great but hard to find music over their 26 year history, Norton Records reissued “Crazy Date” and helped to get the song into record collections of fans all over the world. Their existing stock of these 45s was damaged, and the sleeves destroyed.

Dave and Susan Reynolds have generously made this possible as a benefit for Norton Records. The photo of Dave is included to verify that he did indeed sign the photo and record.

Dave does not normally do signings, and no future ones are planned, so this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to help Norton Records, and receive a priceless, autographed photo of Dave Reynolds and the Crazy Teens AND autographed copy of the Norton “Crazy Date” 45.

The 8 1/2 x 11 inch photo is a genuine silver gelatin reprint of high resolution scans of photos from Dave Reynolds’ personal collection, signed by him.   The 45 is a Norton Records split single with “Crazy Date” by the Crazy Teens on one side and “The Walk” by the Volk Brothers on the other side.  The record is in near mint condition with minor sleeve scuffing and the sleeve has slight shelf wear.

ALL PROCEEDS GO TO NORTON RECORDS
Special thanks to Lars Espensen, George Hadjidakas, Dave and Susan Reynolds and Lori Watts.

  1. hi, i’m a good friend of billy & miriam (since 1976!) and have them on my radio show, INTOXICA, & am planning a huge norton records benefit here in LA & also a special edition of my radio show. one of the things i love to do is get quick radio ID’s from the folks who’s records i play & crazy date is seriously in my top 10 records ever. is there a possibility dave reynolds could do one? it would take literally 30 seconds of his time. please email me at the email above or contact me on facebook, thank you!

  2. Attention all you crazy teens, we’ve had some questions about the auction so here are the answers:

    Bidding is not incremental – meaning the amount you bid is the amount you will pay if you are the highest bidder.

    You are welcome to bid as many times as you want until the auction end time at 12PM CST on Tuesday December 18th.

    High bid will be posted as close to 12 PM each day as possible, so check this page for updates.

    Thanks!!!
