Massive Find

Recommended Posts

A couple days ago on my day off I went to Tulsa. The plan was to stop by Qdoba for lunch and go watch a movie. There was a Vintage Stock in the same shopping center as Qdoba so I decided to look around before I got lunch. I really didn't expect to find much. Usually I find a common cd or two if I'm lucky. This trip started off about the same. While searching through the bargain table I spotted Slaughter's Stick It To Ya. It was only 99 cents so I decided to buy it. I happened to look up at the stack of cds right in front of me. Something caught my eye. All kinds of awesome cds such as Spread Eagle, Arcade, and Armed Forces. The more I looked the bigger my pile got. I believe I was in there two hours.


When I thought I had found just about everything there was to find I would stumble onto a Melidian or The Wildhearts. I couldn't believe my luck. Most of the cds were $.99 so even if I wasn't sure what it was I grabbed it anyway. According to the sign the cds with the 99 cent red tags were 10 for $4.99. Even better deal. When I went to pay for my massive pile of cds the guy kept shuffling them. I wasn't sure what he was doing. When I got the total I figured out that regardless of the tags color he gave me the discount for 10 discs. My total was $37.86.


The first part of the list I found on this site or I knew what it was. The second part I'm not so sure of. I might have bought some bad cds.

It will be interesting to know what you think of some of them once you have had a chance to spin them.

I also am curious about that one. Never heard of it unless it's a different Spread Eagle.

I think it's a single off the Open to the Public cd


Damn that's a nice haul man! :beerbang:

I guess I should have clarified the Shine disc. I assumed someone else had stumbled upon one before. It's a radio promo disc. Not sure when I'll have time to start listening to all of this. I need to get a new cd player and it appears there aren't a whole lot of options left when it comes to portable players.

Nice CD hunting trip, eh, Jake? You want to be sure and give thanks for those 16 and 17 year old kids they got working in the store who put out the CDs.......you know, I'm talking about those teeny boppers who have never heard of the killer titles you found.....all they know is the last guy who won American Idol and who's been played on the radio the last three weeks!!!! They think all those killer titles are just unheard of junk!!!!! Well....their junk is "OUR GOLD"!!! :beerbang:
