I found George Harrison's Best of Dark Horse: 1976-1989 for $6 at a Mr. K's.  Finally got "Blow Away" on something other than cassette.ahdn_george_08

On CD today:  Radiohead's "There There" CD single.  With the amazing "Paperbag Writer" b-side.  It even had the mini-poster in it.  And The Decemberists' 'The Crane Wife'.  This is a band I've been wanting to experience properly (ie:  Not downloading for free), and this album has not disappointed.

E is for 'Ergent'.

They have a couple of 2nd hand music / games / comic stores here in Canberra, unfortunately one of the better ones closed just recently, in spite of all the money I spent there.

So far the best purchase I have had is the boxed Lennon Anthology set, it cost me A$60 but it is in pristine condition.  Also got "Kisses on the Bottom" new for $9.  Not amazing prices globally but great locally :)

I keep waiting for the day when I find Yesterday… and Today with the butcher cover in a thrift store around here. (And there's a LOT of thrift stores in this area.) I figure it'll happen eventually.

The other day I popped into this vintage shop, and got two Wings albums (of course):  "Back to the Egg" for only $6, and "Band on the Run" for $8!  It had the poster in there too!  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Ah – nice one – it's the posters I miss the most after selling my LP collection many years ago.  CDs and their inserts are SO wimpy.  Luckily I had 2 copies of the White Album so I kept a copy of the photos and poster (yes, I did tell the buyer only one of the LPs had them :)   )

Erm, back on topic, the local store has the 2CD Amnesty Darfur set for $9 – I have my eyes on that one for this coming week-end.

*bump!*

 

I found 2 Mary Hopkin singles the other day.  "Those Were The Days" and "Goodbye", which as many of you know are excellent songs ("Goodbye" is a Lennon-McCartney composition).  Sadly, neither had their original Apple sleeves. Still though, for 50 cents each it was a good find.

I LOVE thrift stores!  Haven't found anything that interesting lately.  I'm ususally looking for clothes, because I'm a 60's and 70's nut when it comes to fashion, it's the best place to go!  I always take a look at everything else, but it's usually the thrift store downtown, and I usually bus down there (especially during tourist season) so I'm not keen on carrying too much.

As far as vinyls go, we have a good record shop downtown with killer stuff!  Last time we went in I got The Plastic Ono Band live in Toronto 1969, and a Beatles "Rarities" album.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

 

I'm not sure how often that you get back up here to Campbell River, but since you mentioned before that you're from here, check out the 'Pier Street Trading Post' which is one of the better second-hand stores I've seen.  While clothes aren't really their forte, they have lots of Beatles' vinyl, including the solo years at great prices (they usually knock the price down even more at checkout).  Also, the 'FabFourEver' Beatles tribute act plays the Tidemark Theatre on Saturday if you're looking for something FAB to do this weekend…:-)

Why do they knock the price down once you've already decided to buy the thing at the higher price…a-hard-days-night-john-7

I haven't found anything of interest lately, mostly just useless tat.

Recently purchased a copy of Choba B CCCP (the Russian album), a copy of Venus And Mars (with posters and stickers) for £10 plus a plethora of singles from a very good local record shop in Edinburgh.

I have an original Venus And Mars with posters and stickers that was bought (I believe) when it was first released, never been resold.
