    After reading JD's vinyl score thread, I thought it might be fun to put all the finds in one place. I know that there is a vast difference in types of music folks on AK enjoy, and this way you can comment on the ones you like or don't like, and give a reason why. This may make it easier for AKr's to decide what to look for or avoid. However, if you are anything like me, you will never pass up anything that looks remotely interesting, and if you do you will rush out the next day and get it anyway. So post away with your great and near great finds. If you find any great covers, then post those too.
    VinylHanger....... who scored big time today:D

    Well, I did have an alterior motive in posting this thread;) I was working 4 stories up in the lift and got the itch for a score. I figured it would be gear, but I found a niced stash of albums that were in the thrift that I can usually only find Jimmy Swaggarts greatest hits and scratched copies of Sing along with Mitch.
    So hear is the list, I am so stoked:
    Led Zep- CODA- Mint clean- spinning first:guitar:
    Don Henley-Building the Perfect Beast
    Lindsey Buckingham-Law and Order
    Heart-Dreamboat Annie.... Canadian Pressing, the best pressing
    Kate Bush-Hounds of Love
    Environments-it's an aural psychology record.. interesting.
    CCR-Cosmos Factory, not real minty, but couldn't pass it up
    Christine McVie-Christine McVie
    Highwayman-dig this one lots :D
    Wings-Venus and Mars
    Buckwheat Zydeco-taking it home
    Simon and Garfunkel-Sounds of Silence,cleaner than other one
    'til tuesday-voices carry... finally found a minty one
    David + David-Boomtown, brings back memories
    REM no. 5-Document, very glad to have this on vinyl

    So depending on your taste in music, it could be a bunch of overplayed rock and 80's dreck, but to my tastebuds, it's pure heaven :D

    I haven't found anything lately. I searched the pawn shops last week. Almost bought Rob Zombie's first album for 5 bucks. Good thing I didn't since I already had most of the songs from d-loads.
    Here are 3 cd's that I have worth mentioning.
    Scorpions Acoustica- I think it was my dad that found this on the road and gave it to me. It's well recorded and sounds great. And I think its better than their electric stuff. If you can find it worth buying.

    Mike Oldfield 'Tubular Bells III'- (new age)
    Borrowed from the library by a friend. The one song in particular 'Far Above the Clouds' I must have played a 100 times. I just love it, on the loudspeakers it is awesome. I also seen him play this song on tv which was great. The rest of the album is ok but nothing compared to this song.

    Jean Michel Jarre, Metamorphoses (electronic new age)
    His previous albums ('Oxygen' Magnetic Fields' 'Equinox' ' Rondevous') were all good analog synth work that pretty much established his style.
    This album breaks from that style to a more techno analog synth. Almost every song on the cd is a keeper if your into this kind of music. Its a good work out for your speakers, floorstanders recommended!:)

    No vinyl this week, but I'm on the hunt! :D

    I did pick up a blast from the past this week. A sealed MFSL original CD of Blood Sweat & Tears ~ 3.

    I also discovered a great new (to me) local country/rock group Cross Canadian Ragweed. Picked up their S/T release last Friday and their latest Soul Gravy today. Great stuff!!

    It ain't The Experience, but it isn't even remotely the Isley's. The
    first is a nice pressing of bootleggy quality and the second is of pretty decent quality. Good stuff, just a different Hendrix.
    Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come UK copy was the catch of the day.
    Flat out smokes my 3 US copies. Was priced accordingly too.
    Few know of this rare masterpiece. :cool:

    I picked up several Linda Ronstadt albums yesterday on vinyl at the local thrift store. Mondays are usually good days.


    Heart Like A Wheel (1974)

    Hasten Down The Wind (1976)

    Simple Dreams (1977)

    Living In The USA (1978) [where she's in short shorts and roller skates]

    Greatest Hits

    Greatest Hits Vol. 2


    There were a couple of clean ELO albums. I passed on those. I probably should have picked them up, given how cheap they were.

    That Living in the USA is one of my favorite covers. I find it amazing that the women of today need to be scantily clad to have a sexy cover where in the 70's, Carly Simon and Linda could be fully clothed and have a sexy cover. Maybe it's my age showing, But I ain't seen a Carly cover that I didn't like :D
