Picked up this week : - 

Eagles - s/t ... Orig. white Asylum label, like I used to have when I first got into them, even though I have a later copy...going thru a bit of a nostalgia thing.

Eagles - On The Border - same reason as above!

 

Also since last post a few bits of vinyl I picked up...there's probably more but here's what I remember

The Firesign Theatre - The Tale of the Giant Rat of Sumatra (some Monty Python type stuff apparently - not got around to playing it yet) bought for the sleeve only and the princely sum of £2

Man - Christmas at the Patti - double 10" 

Gwendal - Some kind of French folk band

Chikkin - Which Came First (white Vinyl) - but I seem to have lost it without even playing it - it should be between Cheap Trick and Chilliwack!

Yes - Going for the One (nostalgia again!)

Family - Anyway - in the vinyl outer with the gatefold inner....again the nostalgia thing

Space Opera - s/t

Star Star - Go Go Girls in Love

I do not, and will not, buy new or reissued vinyl. I will, however, scour the old, used vinyl for old AOR and Rock gems. :)

This was cool before the hipster thing. Nowadays used $1-2 vinyls are selling for more than $10.And thus some of the enjoyment of finding cheap unknown music by visiting a record store  is gone. 

 

I always buy new vinyl  when available and my preferable option is the vinyl/cd combo ( Vinyl with cd which comes without jewel case/artwork)  which only few labels are offering for the moment (Century Media/Inside Music etc.). I asked FR many times to adopt this policy without success thus far.

 

I never buy reissues except if the first pressing was only available as  picture disc ( for example first W.E.T., DD-revolve, Winger - Karma etc) or demo tape/lp tape (if cases like these occur I hunt for both versions, if I'm missing  any).

    • Excellent. I'm relieved as I thought some members here were all aboard the #metoo don't-dare-look-at-a-woman-because-that's-sexual-assault-you-misogynistic-creep bandwagon, and the acknowledging-that-a-lot-of-terrorists-are-muslim-is-so-fucking-racist bandwagon. But it's nice to hear you look beyond the basic "stats and lies" so hopefully we'll see no more politically correct "I love what the masses say; sign me up!" rubbish.

    • I'll give you one example. Tax cuts. Everyone loves tax cuts right?? and according to Trump every American got a tax cut in 2017.....but here are the facts - According to estimates from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, while most Americans will benefit at least somewhat, the top fifth of earners get 70 percent of the bill’s benefits, and the top 1 percent get 34 percent. The new tax treatment for “pass-through” entities — companies organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, or S corporations — will mean an estimated $17 billion in tax savings for millionaires in 2018   Sorry that's just wrong. And this will add over $1 trillion to national debt. Tax cuts for people expire in 2025/6 while corporation is permanent. Hello austerity measures. Trust me that ain't fun as the UK has found out for the last few years after Labour almost bankrupted our country. 
    • by intelligent he means looking into things beyond the basic stats and lies which are generally used to gloss / cover up what resides beneath And yes Nordic Union will receive no more spins from me. Besides being one paced and generally dull the songs aren't helped by Atkins straining throughout. 
    • I like the song, country vibe or whatever it is. Agree with comments that it wasn't what I expected when I saw the pic. It kinda looks like 3 band members, and they didn't like the look of the 3 of them together, so they asked a sound mixer to stand in the background lol
    • And by intelligent I'm assuming you mean people that follow what's trending in hip circles without looking into things for themselves?  I'm Australian and give very, very little shit about US politics. But I still listen to things and I don't think Russ is alone in his opinion that Obama was a very poor president and that, whether you agree with his politics or not, Trump actioned more stuff in one month than Obama did in years?  Nordic Union album still sucks balls. 
    • Very different to what their image suggests. Lose the country vibe and they're onto something. Not bad at all.
