So I was watching this guys vinyl/music collection videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6euFNTpXSE

All of a sudden he pops up these tiny 3 inch CDs he has collected. They bombed big time apparently (which must be true as I had never heard of them before now) but Frank was one of the first champions of it. They're really cool with tiny cute gate folds.
Anybody on here got any of these at all? Or even some from another artist. Seen Peaches on eBay for pretty cheap.

Rykodisc tried releasing those for some other artists around that time (circa 1988).

Here's one for Jimi Hendrix. http://www.ebay.com/itm/JIMI-HENDRIX-Da ... 51bc17b1c2

For what it's worth...I have all 3. Got 'em when they were first released, and you needed a plastic clip-on to play them in a cd player.

I have "Holy Kiss of Flesh" remix by the Residents (a 16 minute remix of tracks off "God in 3 Persons") on 3 inch CD.

I have the 4 FZ minis, the Residents (which I really like better than the album God in 3 Persons) as well as The Raspberries...

I think they were called "cd singles" at one time.

Perhaps true, but "God in 3 Persons" is the only Residents' album I have been able to play in the company of women. :mrgreen:

Most players have a tray capable of holding those little suckers too:
