Nice. Have yet to run into any Big Mama Thornton. Was that pricey?
EDIT: I legitimately enjoy the entire record, but I really wanted this record solely for this one song. This is the track God puts on when his lady steps out on him.
Damn I have to pick that up. All of those songs are awesome.
Did anyone pick up the Melon Collie Infinite Sadness reissue? Not sure if I should buy the vinyl or the CD box set (which includes the dvd), but would really like it on vinyl.
I went to one of the four local thrift stores today and caught some pretty awesome stuff
Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass - Whipped Cream and Other Delights
Gene Autry - You Are My Sunshine and Other Greatest Hits
Frank Sinatra - Songs For Swingin' Lovers
Synergy - Sequencer (early Moog album, looks killer)
Wanda Jackson - Wonderful Wanda
Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66 - Herb Alpert Presents
Benny Goodman - The Complete Benny Goodman, Vol. 5/1937-1938 (Lester Young's on a bunch of these sides!)
Looking forward to visiting the others soon and to swing by the antique shops. Small towns have interesting selections.
Yay, my reissue of Voodoo arrived in the mail today!
Songs for Swinging Lovers fucking rules.
My local record store is usually hit or miss, but today they had some gems.
Dinosaur Jr. - Bug
Minutemen - Double Nickels On The Dime 2LP
Picked up a few records I had on hold. I'm done going to record stores for a bit. Seriously.
The Nipple Erectors/The Nips - Bops, Babes, Booze and Bovver
Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazelwood - Nancy & Lee
Various Artists - We Got Power
You guys should check out the Nipple Erectors comp. It's Shane MacGowan's pre-Pogues band, and they fucking ruled.
I'm much more happy with the second record that showed up today!!! D'Angelo reissue... holy fuck. Sound is incredible. Packaging is ace. Tons of notes and nic-nacs. The sleeves slide in and out like buttah. Beautiful reissue and I'm so fucking happy to finally have this one vinyl. Lights in the Attic kills it once again.
So, I'm super stoked 'cause I have my new turntable and phono preamp picked out to buy for Christmas. It's the Music Hall MMF 2.2 with a Musical Fidelity V-LPS MKII amp. My question, what would be a good pair of speakers to buy? Any suggestions $300 and under would be greatly appreciated!
Tone Loc - Loc'd After Dark
I love "Funky Cold Medina."
Yeah, I'm not sure I'm handy enough to make them how I'd like aha. Greghead, do you have any other suggestions?
Os Mutantes - Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol
Gilberto Gil - s/t
Both original Brazilian issues!!!
Belle And Sebastian - If You're Feeling Sinister CD
Dawnbringer - Into the Lair of the Sun God
Thanks for the rec, Bryan!
