    I bet no one has this, just got it a few days ago at the record store just had to have it. Pretty rare as it's not even logged on discogs and not any sales I could find. A 1980 record and they must have really let them get in the water for the photo shoot.

    I agree it's a pretty good LP. Found a copy last summer.

    I picked up 3 copies of early Rolling Stones LP's from Taiwan, expecting them to be cheap knock-offs as well. I was very surprised at how good they sounded.

    Very nice! I found a Trunk in stereo, which initially I thought was 2nd state for a buck. Wishful thinking. There are so many versions it's hard to tell. I like the Beatles, but not enough to go searching for the 2nd state. It is nice when you accidentally come across one.

    When I found the Rod Stewart album there were a bunch of other Taiwanese albums. I left them because they look so cheaply made. Another time, same Goodwill there was a pile of albums from Israel. I picked up couple from Ofra Haza. Have to admit, because she is nice looking and the albums looked like quality. Turns out she is quite popular and the music is good. What I find interesting is that these were someones collection and that they traveled thousands of miles to California.

    We do have that going for us here and being close to a big metro area. I got pressings from Germany, UK, Finland, Spain, Japan, Netherlands, Mexico, and the list goes on. I do stay away from some countries though.

    Oh that just reminded me of a couple crazy records I should post.

    Obviously I'm too young (43) to have heard Hank firsthand, but I made a friend who knew Don Helms, his steel guitar player. I thought he was blowing smoke to be honest; he had started attending the church I was at, a church of maybe 35 people on Sunday if you were lucky. He saw my Hank bumper sticker and started talking to me. When it was said and done, I wound up with not only a copy of the 2006 Steel Guitar Convention with Don calling him up on stage, but an unreleased radio recording of Hank, as well as very hard to find recordings of Hank as a teenager. They're pretty raw sounding, but I've uploaded those recordings to my YouTube page, ronreagan12.
