Tom Peterson Cheap Trick / Lose Your Mind Another Language

10" Acetate single

Likely a one of a kind item – this was the first track released by Cheap Trick’s bass player, Tom Peterson, after he left the band in the early 80’s to form a new band with his wife – who also sang with them.  They only released a single EP under the name Tom Peterson & Another Langauge.  This is an acetate of just the one track – perhaps an alternate version?  In any case, the record didn’t sell, the band split, Tom & Dagmar split and he’s back where he belongs, with Cheap Trick (although I always thought Jon Brandt was an excellent replacement).

Country: USA


Test pressing from Future Disc Systems. 45 RPM.

Sleeve Grade: Generic sleeve from mastering house

Record Grade:  VF – light marks from sleeve


Our Grading System Explained Below - please read, ours is a little different from what you may be used to

Don't Forget to Look below the text - if there are additional photos, they'll be there!




This item is from an amazing music collection I'm just starting to list.  Over the next few weeks you will see TONS of incredible records from this collection.  Look in my eBay store under "Pedigree Collection - Records" and prepare to be amazed!



It was curated by a longtime music business professional who started his career in the 70's as a clerk at a very cool LA based record store chain.  The store dealt in lots of import product.  By the late 70's he'd started a company that specialized in importing records from all over the world (not just the UK, as had previously been the standard).  The company handled a lot of obscure progrssive, punk and industrial releases from places like Iceland, Poland, Mexico, Greece and others.  The gentleman in question set aside a copy of EVERYTHING they brought in.  Out of the import company grew a label (one of the most successful independent labels of all time with HUGE acts) which was eventually sold to a major label.

The owner continued working in the Industry, travelling the world & aggressively buying for the next 20+ years, acquiring a tremendous amount of gems along the way -and now they can be yours. 

While many of these records were purchased, there is also a huge amount of promotional product in the collection.  These are typically the first pressings off the stampers and should be prized as such.  Audiophiles know stampers degrade over time and later pressings tend to sound worse than early ones.  We personally don't subtract points for promo punches and cuts or embossed promo text on sleeves as we feel this is an intrinsic part of the promo copy.  All these variations are noted, however.


Like many avid music consumers, he acquired voraciously, but didn't have time to listen to as much as he'd have liked.  Much of the collection is unplayed or barely played.  That said, unless an item is factory sealed we will not claim it as "new" - even if the record never was offered sealed in the first place (many import records were never shrink-wrapped by the manufacturor, for instance).

Interestingly, the Import Company that this gentleman ran offered a service whereby US retail stores could pay a small fee to have new imports shrink-wrapped, saving employees the task of bagging the import records.  There are a few of those records listed here and we WILL note those as "new" - but only if the shrink is still on.  Always quality-concious, the shrink on these was loose, which spared the records from being overheated and kept the shrink from getting too tight, which can damage the sleeves and warp the vinyl.


All items are graded visually.  We try hard to be conservative when grading, we want you to be pleasantly surprised when you get your records.  That said, we are human, and if you think our grading is off, contact us.

Our background in grading collectibles goes back over 30 years, but is mostly in other fields.  For that reason, our grading system may look a little different to what you are used to (the Goldmine system, for instance).

We would rather be thorough than vague (as you can tell from all the text in the listing!), so if a record has multiple issues listed, it still may be a very sharp record - especially from this collection!  We are listing no "low-grade" records here unless they are incredibly scarce.  Furthermore, while we have a shorthand grading system like other sellers, we also endeavor to describe the issues are that determine the grade.  We don't just drop in an abbreviation and expect you to use your imagination.

We grade using the following terms:

NEW - Factory sealed records.  If you open a factory sealed record to play and it has a manufacturing defect (rare, but it happens), please remember there is no way we could've known that as we do not open sealed records to inspect them for obvious reasons.

NM - Near Mint - the highest grade we will give anything.  We don't believe there are truly MINT by definition records.  Any factors that prevent the sleeve or vinyl from being mint will be noted in the listing.  If it reads NM and has no further info, expect a record that is as good as new, but not sealed.

M- Mint Minus - almost our top grade, but maybe with a couple small issues

VF - Very Fine - maybe the vinyl has a few marks from going in and out of the sleeve, or there is a corner bend.

F - Fine - vinyl might look a little dull, but no visible scratches or defects, sleeve may have more than a few small defects

VG - Very Good - record shows wear but is expected to play through, with some background noise.  If there is a small scratch, this will be noted.  Sleeve has multiple issues, which will be noted.

FINALLY, REMEMBER:  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but proof is in the pictures.  We have photos in all the listings, but if there are specific questions, please ask & we will do our best to resolve!


We use new professional Uline cardboard mailers with padding to ship your records.  That said, record mailers are tight and if the corners get banged up in shipping, so do the corners of your records.  For an additional fee, we offer an alternative packaging option, whereby we pack your records in the Uline mailers described above, and those are wrapped in padding and packed inside a larger box.  If you are interested in this option, please inquire before you pay and we'll get you a quote.

Finally, buyers have differing opinions about the best way to ship records; in particular whether the records should be removed from the outer sleeves when they are mailed.  We get an equal amount of requests to ship in and out of sleeves.  As sleeves were designed to protect records, our default is to ship the records inside them.  Some buyers believe shipping the albums in the sleeves can cause them to split.  We have no bias and are happy to accomodate your preference.  If you want records to be removed from sleeves before we ship, JUST SAY SO.  The best place to do this is in the messages section of your PayPal payment.  If you don't express a preference, we will ship them in the sleeves.  NO WHINING IF YOU DON'T SPECIFY!




OUR HOURS:  We usually work a normal 5 day week, Monday-Friday, 9:30 to 5:30.  If we are closed during normal business hours, you will see a notice on our listings page (usually by the listing title).  We will respond to all e-mails, but typically answers will take 24 hours to arrive.  Do not expect a response after hours or during the weekends or holidays.

SHIPPING METHODS: We use USPS for most shipments. In some cases we may use UPS instead, especially if the package is large or oversized, so don't take the shipping method listed as gospel - your purchase could be sent by either carrier, but the majority go by USPS.

SHIPPING FEES:  We try hard to only charge actual cost + a fee of no more than $2.00 to cover materials, time, & other costs associated with each sale.  On most items, we undercharge.

COMBINING SHIPPING:  We are happy to do this for all customers, unless specifically stated in the listing, or if the items cannot be shipped together (for instance it's hard to send posters and records in the same package without damaging them, you get the drift).  Please request a total through the eBay system and we will do our best to reduce shipping for multiple items. NOTE THAT COMBINING SHIPPING DOES NOT ALWAYS REDUCE S&H COSTS, BUT IT WILL NEVER INCREASE YOUR S&H COST.

WE ARE REASONABLE PEOPLE:  If there’s a problem with your purchase, please contact us and let us know.  As buyers too, we always want to provide you with a great buying experience!

OFFERS:  Unless you see the "Make Offer" button on our listings, we are not interested in offers.  If you must, please make it reasonable.  Asking for 50% off won’t work.  If you can find it for less, please, buy it there rather than haggle with us. Thank you in advance!

UNPAID WINNINGS:  There seems to be a recent epidemic of dim-witted folks who don't understand the basics of eBay.  Here we go: you buy, you pay, we ship (or you pick up in the rare case of pick-up only items), you get the merchandise.  If payment is not made in the time specified, we will issue an unpaid item notice to eBay and you'll get a strike.  The item will be re-listed and you'll be blocked from our auctions.  We have absolutely zero interest in ANY excuses.  If there is a problem with your PayPal account, don't buy until it's resolved.  If you are expecting money from somewhere else to cover your purchase, don't buy until you have that money in your account.  Your Grandmother explodes unexpectedly?  She'd want you to honor your commitments.  Don't let Grandma down!  You let your monkey play online and he bought a bunch of stuff using your account?  Tough luck!  Next time, apply the lesson you've learned: be responsible and watch your monkey.  In the meantime, it's your account & your responsibility - pay up!  NO EXCEPTIONS!!

PAYMENT TIMELINE: Since we only accept PayPal, there's no reason that payment can't be made at the moment of purchase. We allow a 48 hour period to make a payment from the end of the auction (or, in the case of multiple purchases, 48 hours after you get an invoice with combined shipping, if shipping can be combined).


SHIPPING METHODS & COSTS:  Items must ship by Priority Mail or better, per eBay & PayPal requirements - this is non-negotiable.  Priority is usually faster than 1st Class and includes insurance, but it costs more - minimum cost for a one pound package to even a nearby country like Canada is over $20, and it goes up from there.  EMS is faster, includes insurance and tracking, is typically more secure and better handled, but is usually more expensive.

S&H PRICES IN THE LISTING:  If you'd like a quote for another service (Fed Ex, UPS, etc), PLEASE, contact us BEFORE YOU BUY to ask for an S&H price quote and make sure to include your country.

If you made multiple purchases that can be shipped in one package, WAIT FOR OUR INVOICE.  DO NOT pay for an item or items, arbitrarily inserting a figure for S&H.  Payment is due 48 hours AFTER we send the invoice with S&H for your country included. If you pay the US shipping cost and you live outside the USA it will not only delay the shipping of your item, but it will cost you more in the long run.  It is not our responsibility to chase after you if you make the wrong payment, so we take care of the buyers who have paid correctly first and will notify the others when we have time to get to them.

CUSTOMS VALUES & FEES: We will NOT falsify customs forms for anyone - EVER!  We buy plenty of stuff from around the world and sympathize with Customs fees, but don't ask or expect us to lie for you, it puts us at risk and we will not do it. 

If you have to pay customs and / or other fees in your country, this is your responsibility - not ours.  If an item sent internationally is returned to us because the buyer refuses to accept it or pay fees imposed by your local government or delivery service, we will not refund the S&H costs if the item is returned to us.  Again, these costs are the buyer's responsibility, not the seller's.

DELIVERY TIMES:  International Deliveries face various potential roadblocks that domestic shipments do not – customs officials & inspections in particular – so we cannot guarantee that any package will arrive within a specified period of time.  Most packages do arrive within the estimates.
