    Finally made it back to the record show...
    I hadn’t been to the local record show they hold every other month for probably close to a year, so this morning was a nice time. Looking for anything specific is usually really hard, and there are some tables where everything is carefully organized and priced for the collector, but there are plenty of bargains to be found if you just hit the cheaper tables. Many’s the time I’ve seen the same album priced at a dollar or two at one table and going for over 20 bucks across the aisle.

    Well, I grabbed a mishmash of stuff…a couple cleaner copies of things I already had, some things I’ve been hoping to run across for a long time and the usual happy surprise or two. Finally ran across a cheap copy of Blood on the Tracks to replace the one with the scratch across the whole second side, so I can finally listen to side two again. For under 40 bucks, I walked away with the following:

    Lee Perry: Roast Fish Collie Weed and Cornbread
    Eek-A-Mouse: Wa-Do-Dem
    Johnny Cash: Sings Songs That Made Him Famous
    Chris Isaak: Silvertone
    Flesheaters: Forever Came Today
    Bob Dylan: Blood on the Tracks
    Lightnin’ Hopkins: The Blues Giant
    Ella Fitzgerald: These Are the Blues
    Ella Fitzgerald: Ella in Berlin
    Ella Fitzgerald & Oscar Peterson: Ella & Oscar
    Count Basie Meets Oscar Peterson: Timekeepers
    Harry Edison: Edison’s Lights
    Johnny Hartman: Songs from the Heart
    Nina Hagen: Nunsexmonkrock
    The Untouchables: Wild Child
    B-52s: Self-titled
    Wire: A Bell is a Cup
    Nitzer Ebb: Belief
    Talking Heads: Remain in Light
    Dire Straits: Self-titled
    Blue Oyster Cult: Agents of Fortune
    Madness: Self-titled
    Patsy Cline: Sentimentally Yours

    I’m spinning the Lee Perry right now…

    Very nice indeed!
    Anybody who snags Nitzer Ebb and Patsy Cline in the same haul is O.K. in my book...

    Nina Hagen: Nunsexmonkrock

    I've been looking for that on wax for the longest time now. Great choice. I never knew why I liked your musical taste, but now I know EXACTLY why. I should add you to my Buddy List or something.

    Thank you, I'll be playing that CD in a minute.
