CD's you got rid of and wished you hadn't

Recommended Posts

I was just talking about this to the Wotster .... are there any CD's you had and either sold or binned and lived to regret....a few of mine that spring instanmtly to mind are:-

 

Avalon - Voice of Life (I binned this one with the Icebreaker and Killer Dwarfs ...below... about 6 years ago when I moved house as I thought it was so crap that no-one would want it...I love the CD now but I have to do with a download now as I'm not paying the price people want for it these days!)

 

Killer Dwarfs - Stand Tall (orig on the Grudge label)

 

Icebreaker - Eleco (But only to sell it as I've seen it go for a pretty penny every so often)

 

Cats in Boots - Demonstration ...(I still have the CD but the sleeve and booklet have disappeared for some reason!)

 

Kiss Alive II - actually this is a cheat...this is a vinyl version with a bunch of extra songs listed on the sleeve that were'nt actually on the album, apparently only a few escaped the pressing plant and are now worth a bit)

Keep NEVERMIND and sh*t can the rest. NEVERMIND is the only essential one. Oh, and if you've got BLEACH and wanna dump it, send it my way. My tape crapped out years ago and I have yet to come across a CD copy.

Axcel - Incorporated... cos I've never been able to find another :(

I had that one too. In fact, I've had a lot of rare Aussie indies which I would like to have now, but purely for trade. :lol: At the time, though, I got good trades for them anyway. So all is well.

 

I'm cool with all the CDs I've got rid of except one:

 

Mason - 'Inside your head' ; sold that last year with the complete wrong impression of what it sounded like. When I heard it just before I sent it off I was kicking myself in the nuts.

 

I also traded Dare's 'Blood from stone'. It was a really good trade at the time and I thought I'd find it again, but I never have. :( A disc I really love, so I hope I get it again one day - even the re-issue.

I hardly gave it a listen but would love to give it another listen. Was proabably one of the first, if not the first, indie I ever picked up.

 

I think from memory I got about $US30 for it on ebay back then which was pretty good.

Nah, I'm accurate as sin every single other time. Of the millions of thoughts I've had on CDs I only got one single one wrong and paid for it. :(

If I recall correctly, I think it had a lot more keys than I think you'd enjoy. More AOR orientated, wasn't it? Like you, I think I spun it a couple of times before I got rid of it because of the demand. :)

Yep, plenty of keys from memory.

Would just like to get it again to give it another spin.

Circus Of Power - S/T

PRINCESS PANG - S/T

JOHNNY CRASH - NEIGHBOURHOOD THREAT :crying:

JESSE STRANGE - S/T

SAINTS & SINNERS - S/T

BABYLON A.D. - S/T

 

And probably more I can't think of...

Yeah, I'd kind of like to have that Big Deal disc again too. 'Time is running', it was called. I think that was probably the best of those really rare Aussie indies I ever owned.

Isn't Circus of Power a really cheap and easy-to-find disc to get?

I had a hard time trying to find my copy, but rumor has it ROCK CANDY will be releasing it :banana:

 

I never got rid of anything I didn't want to. If you ask me, how many c.d.'s I past up in a record store? That's a whole nother story. :crying:

Banshee - Race Against Time

Tuff Luck - s/t

 

I traded both to Jarred and it was a fair trade but I guess the one I miss the most is the Banshee since I thought I'd find a copy pretty easy but haven't. I used to trip over those in used cd shops but I've never seen one since I traded it. Then the band reissued it last year and I thought I'd grab one of those but they were cd-fucking-r's.

    • This one is really good honestly, 10 songs, pretty much all their big hits. Very concise.
    • I think most people know my stance on these two. I love LA Guns and think Tracii is one of the best guitarists to come out of the hair metal scene, and while I like Stryper I have really gone off them due to Michaels compulsion to release new material every second Wednesday. I have not bought the last 2 or 3 Stryper albums, and a bunch of other stuff he is involved in because of this. Hell, didnt even pick the first Sunbomb album up til early this year and only then it was because I got it for £5 instead of the usual £13 to £15 that Frontiers CDs usually cost. That album did not impress me. Musically it was tight but Sweets vocals were pretty "meh", and sounds like they are gonna be even worse on this album. Have to agree to what has already been said, but I can barely even understand what he is singing. Now while I am fine with listening to foreign language songs, if a singers native tongue is English, I wanna be able to understand what he is singing. Fuck me, there are death metal bands out there easier to understand than this. If I didnt know the song title, I would think it was called I'm bating bulls yeah
    • That Sunbomb release was soo bad that I can't believe there's gonna be another one.
    • Computer generated Gene is now God of Thunder 
    • Sorry, but those vocals are not good at all...
    • More info about Good Times Music: Welcome to Good Time Music…if you have found your way over here, it’s surely because you have a desire for melodic hard rock and AOR…or at least to satiety your curiosity, what we are all about . We will shortly announce our first signed band and one more will follow soon. We hope to be a landmark with the community and bring nothing but the best within the genres. To start off with we’ll release about 4 releases pr year. And with the love and support by you, the fans, we will hopefully gradually add to our rosters over the time to come. We will for sure be a force to be reckoned with and we are here to stay for good. Welcome onboard to all on this amazing journey we are about to engage in . Best, Carsten/CEO/President Good Time Music
    • It’s not a “you” problem; I could barely make out a word while listening to “Unbreakable” last night. A lyric video is definitely necessary when listening to MS these days. Still, even not having a clue what he was singing for the most part, this is better than pretty much everything off the first Shitbomb album. 
    • Enjoying this one, for defs their best release and they wear their influences firmly on their sleeves , mixing bands like Van Halen/Whitesnake/Treat/Pretty Maids/Magnum so whats not to like  
    • I didn't make the connection until a couple of days ago. This is the previous group of Tobias from Nestor.        
    • I miss the days when I could actually understand what Michael Sweet was singing.  Not sure if that's a "me" problem or a "Sweet" problem...
