Went to record time today to see if they would take a record off my hands. I got an Alabama record from salvation army the other day for 50 cents because it was in good condition and i thought i would check it out. I thought they might have a Mountain or Creedance Clearwater Revival sound and that would have been nice… no, it was straight up country… *shudder* Well, they said that they probably couldn’t sell it so I’m stuck with it (Joe at Blast From the Past might take it… I’ll try their next…) I did some browsing while i was there.
They have the new u2 remasters of Boy, October and War on vinyl. They are $20 a piece though… i really want War on vinyl and maybe someday I’ll spring for it. They also had the Joshua Tree on vinyl remastered but that was like $30… not sure why… it could be a little older, harder to find… i looked through their new arrivals and even saw an original copy of Boy. It was $25. If only i could afford to drop that much on an album, that’d be awesome! I did end up getting a CD and an album while i was there though:
“Boy” – U2
Haha, lots of U2 for me lately huh? Someone must have traded in their old copy this week because this is the first time i’ve seen a copy of this album (i got it on CD, the vinyl i mentioned earlier would have been nice but, yeah $25 is out of my price range at the moment). I listened to the album in the car a couple times and even at work today and i have to say it’s really good. Price Paid: $6
“Moving Pictures” – Rush
This is a really great Rush album! It is probably the “last” (chronologically) Rush album i thoroughly enjoy until “Vapor Trails.” Great songs like “Tom Sawyer,” “YYZ” and “Limelight” make this album solid, and i think that even the lesser known tracks are high quality. Listened to this album a lot during the tail end of my high school years and it’s great tp own it on vinyl. Price Paid: $6
I’ve got a few weeks if summer left then it’s back to school. I go to scool far from record stores so the rate i obtain music will probably slow but i will always stay on the hunt for good music and hopefully one day i will complete the hunt-list.
