    I was in my local St. Vincent DePaul thrift store this past Friday and hit the mother load. What makes this so unique is that this particular store always has plenty of vinyl. If you like big band, Lawrence Welk or anything else produced before 1960. And I have nothing against that type of music. It's just not what I enjoy listening to. So I walk in there Friday afternoon and I'm stunned, utterly speechless with what I've found. So here it goes:

    Phil collins- no jacket required
    Tracy Chapman- Tracy Chapman-
    Mannheim Steamroller- Fresh Aire 4
    Paul Simon- Graceland
    Don Henley- Building the Perfect Beast
    Thomas Dolby- The Golden Age of Wireless
    Dire Straights- Dire Straights
    James Taylor- Flag
    Pretenders- 12"- Back on the Chain Gang/My City Was Gone
    Some jackets are in good shape and some not as good. But each and every album itself is in it's sleeve and condition wise looks brand new. Every single one which leads me to think they may have come from someone's collection. Pics will come soon.

    Picked up three Sarah’s, an Ella and a Brubeck LP on my lunchtime walk today, all in VG+ condition. Love the cover on this one.

    I don't even know where to begin...

    Ok, I do:

    This pretty much sums up my morning trip to Goodwill.

    Total count: 32 albums, all recent releases, all in near mint to mint condition, a couple still sealed, many colored vinyl, most 180g or 200g. 10 double albums at $4.99 each, 22 single albums at $2.99.

    Easily the biggest music score of my life. In all my years of Goodwill hunting, I have seen (and bought) a total of one recent (last 10 years) release. About a month ago, I picked up a sealed copy of the 2008 re-issue of Metallica - Metallica (The Black Album).

    Now this. I am overwhelmed. So much new music to listen to...

    Wow that is incredible.

    The Paul Chambers looks really cool.

    Good finds.

    I had that same pressing of Master of Puppets and it was the worst sounding recording I ever heard of it. I hope your experience is better than mine was. :) Granted my system has the wonderful ability of making bad records sound even worse. LOL

    Apparently it was an unauthorized re-issue from 2015. That may account for the poor sound quality.

    Fortunately, about a month before I got this one, I picked up a sealed 2008 reissue of the Black Album at a different Goodwill:

    Excellent SQ on this one.

    MI0002397621.jpg Found this at my local STVDP thrift shops yesterday. Although I've heard their music thru friends, radio and such. This is my first album I've owned. So far so good.

    I just noticed you're also in Portland. You didn't happen to donate your copy to Goodwill, did you? That's where I got mine as part of my big Memorial Day vinyl score.

    Always great to find a rare jazz LP in great condition at the GW.

    Hank Jones, Kenny Clarke and Wendell Marshall complete the combo, Rudy Van Gelder engineers.

    Th holidays continue to be good to me. My largest ever music score was on Memorial Day. Today, on Independence Day, I scored 17 vintage albums mostly from the mid-70s to the mid-80s. I could have had a LOT more (like more than 50), but I'm picky about condition, and some of them weren't to my taste.

    Here's what I brought home:

    Michael Jackson - Thiller
    The Police -Ghost in the Machine
    a-ha - Hunting High and Low
    Bruce Springsteen - Born in the U.S.A.
    Journey - Escape
    Bryan Adams - Reckless
    Pat Benatar - Crimes of Passion
    Jethro Tull - Aqualung
    Bon Jovi - Slippery when Wet
    Don Henley - Building the Perfect Beast
    Billy Joel - An Innocent Man
    George Harrison - Cloud Nine (still sealed)
    Various Artists - Easy Rider Music from the Soundtrack
    Blue Oyster Cult - Agents of Fortune
    Little River Band - First under the Wire
    Def Leppard - Pyromania
    Motley Crue - Theater of Pain
