Varulven Records for sale on eBay ROCKKIT, MOOD, JANE FONDA with MICHAEL JACKSON

The Varulven Records Story
Joe Viglione's Dynamic Original Boston Rock independent record label

Support Boston Music and Varulven




The classic 45 RPM is ultra rare. Produced by Joe Viglione the song "Never Say Never" was a local Boston area classic resulting in the band opening for Sammy Hagar at the Worcester Centrum and breaking up the day after! 

See the letter from WAAF's Russ Mottla:  "Dear Joe, Just an update on your band ROCKKIT  As if FOURTEEN weeks of air-play on Bay State Rock hasn't said enough!   The song "Never Say Never" is as powerful and well produced as anything I've heard. A real masterpiece.  The requests have not stopped for this song so airplay, of course, will also continue for a few more weeks.   I believe in Rockkit and wish you and the band much success.

All proceeds go to enormous fees I am paying for my six cats.  Thanks for your consideration.

From producer Joe Viglione's personal Varulven Records collection.

Jane Fonda's famous Workout LP with songs by Michael Jackson, R.E.O. Speedwagon, Sylvester, Quincy Jones with James Ingram etc.


Richard Nolan first issued a 45 rpm in the early 1960s.  Then came his iconic Boston area band, Third Rail, which appeared on Live at the Rat, the double album documenting music from the Rathskellar nightclub.
In the 1980s Richard decided to do something different and asked Varulven Records (the Pop Explosion label) to distribute. He issued a cassette live album by the Naked Cage House Band, and then this terrific 45 RPM.
These are mint copies and they are becoming rare. Direct from the box, handed to me by the late Richard Nolan thirty years ago.   It's a great slice of Boston Rock and Roll by an historic figure from our "new wave" scene.  Side note: last September/October original members of Third Rail backed up the Varulven president (that would be me) for our Lou Reed tribute band.   As Third Rail would often perform with our group, it was a delight, and will be again, as old friends get together performing the music of both Reed and Richard Nolan.
The Naked Cage House Band 45rpm picture sleeve single.  Contains two tunes:

  • Track Dog
  • Rolling In Clover
Released in 1988 by Shoestring Records, label # SR247 distributed by Varulven Records.
