My CD horror story!


Recommended Posts

Wow where do I start? I have a huge cd rack that I bought from a cd store that went out of business last year that I have in my basement with most of my rare stuff in it nice & organized w/ spines up for easy searching. This afternoon I went down there to get an Elton John cd I wanted to listen to that's in a cardboard case & when I picked it up it was kinda damp & the cover was water stained. I knew I had bought it brand new so I was like WTF?? So I starting looking through different rows & picked up another one & the back insert was water logged & that's when panic set in & my heart started racing!!! I then look up & my fucking rack is right underneath the air conditioner water line which had some condensation on it so it had been dripping on my cd's for about a week!!! Oh my god I was so fucking pissed!! I pulled it out from against the wall & starting pulling all the cd's out & checking them for damage & had over 40 with water damage to the back inserts & some to the front cover but did avoid damage to any of the rare stuff I have which was barely spared...I did lose the back inserts to COLD SWEAT - "BREAK OUT" & the original BANSHEE - "TAKE 'EM BY STORM" which almost made me :crying: ...other than that the other ones can be replaced so it could have been much worse. Here's a list of the damage:

Now I'm not looking for charity, but if anyone has any of these they don't want & just want to give them away I would definitely pay for shipping or we could trade as I have done some trading with a few folks on here so just PM me...Also the ones with an (*) are top priority.

And by the way when I do get replacements for these I will give the damaged ones away to whoever wants them as the cd's themselves are still fine. Thanks in advance guys as any help is appreciated!

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
