-Dear John-Frustrated Conversation - 30th Anniversary Re-Release 7" (BDR #5) – Dear John broke up before its original release in 1981, and it's been a tough find for Power Pop collectors ever since. We found out why, when Robert Kuhlmann of Dear John let us know he still had most of the original pressing in a closet at his mom's house! They had only printed a small number of the original sleeve, so we're repackaging that original vinyl with a new sleeve featuring a history of Dear John and more!
