I got a signed edition of Jake Bugg's new album called 'Saturday Night Sunday Morning' 2 days ago. I'm looking forward to listening to it.

I've gotten a few things over the past few months, so here's what's new.

Record Store Day stuff:

- Regimental Sgt. Zippo - Elton John

- The Same Stardust EP - Styx - (translucent blue vinyl)

- Angel Dream (Songs and Music from the Motion Picture "She's the One") - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - (cobalt blue vinyl)

- Humdinger/Feelin' High - The Dirty Knobs

- Get Lucky - Loverboy - (white vinyl)

I was also wanting to get Rory Gallagher's Cleveland Calling Pt. 2 and Def Leppard's Live In Oxford, but unfortunately couldn't find them. Maybe someday. a-hard-days-night-john-3

As for other stuff, my mum got me Platinum Blonde's Seven Year Itch compilation CD as an early Christmas/birthday gift, as well as something she found looking through some of her keepsakes in the basement...

My best friend gave me these for Christmas. a-hard-days-night-john-6

First she made me watch the prequel trilogy, back in July. Then she watched my Star Wars obsession deepen and expand to include repeat listening to John Williams' gorgeous scores. Now she's enabling my addiction a-hard-days-night-george-9

Now I just gotta get The Phantom Menace soundtrack to complete the trilogy (and also ANAKIN'S THEME IS GORGEOUS) a-hard-days-night-george-4

Hang on - you have seen the originals, haven't you? 

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

I bought the Abba The Albums CD boxset recently.

I didn't buy this, but I received the 25th anniversary 2CD edition of 'Spice' by my favourite British girl group, The Spice Girls as a Christmas present. It's my favourite album by them.

Great investment. I find that often their back catalogue is better than their most popular stuff. Do you agree?

Yes, of course, lol. Sorry for the confusing wording of the post, I had been a fan of Star Wars since I saw the originals when I was like 12, but I didn't get obsessed till I saw the prequels.

Anyway so I made some post-Christmas gifts-to-myself acquisitions a-hard-days-night-john-6 and two came in the mail today:

IMAG1441.jpegImage Enlarger


My first Fleetwood Mac purchase – 982's Mirage (not Rumours or the eponymous White Album , you say? Well, this is actually my favorite Fleetwood album that I've listened to so far, plus I was hoping someone would get me one of the more famous albums for Christmas – alas, it didn't happen a-hard-days-night-ringo-10) and Tom Petty – Wildflowers & All The Rest. I've wanted this forever, but it was a bit expensive, and so I only got around to it now. I loooooooooove Wildflowers heartheartheartheartheart

I'm sooooo hyped to throw these CDs in my car on my way to and from work ahdn_john_08_gifahdn_john_08_gifahdn_john_08_gif

Yes, although I enjoy all of their hits. There are some hidden gems in their back catalogue such as Merry Go Round, Disillusion, etc.

Wow! I wouldn't mind more Streetheart in my life, all I gots is the "over 60 minutes w/..." CD bought for a buck. " what kind of love is this?" Is one of the earliest those kind of formula power ballads, and one of the few I always liked...

More old-guy shownboating here, since I used to have 1000+ records and now only ~160 to brag about; lemme show you these two $1.00 beauties found at separate yard sales in '85-6. Superb condition cardboard and vinyl, and 100 years of aging if you add em up:

I've been horrible at posting in this thread the last couple of years.  I've definitely bought a ton of CDs and records in that time, but I'll make a mention of one of my discography completion missions.  I've been working on collecting Chris LeDoux's studio albums on CD.  I was able to pick up his first 3 and his last one.

Songs Of Rodeo Life

Rodeo Songs Old & New

Songs Of Rodeo & Country

Haven't done an update in a bit, looks like.

I got Fleetwood Mac (their 1975 "White Album "), Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace soundtrack (1999), and Crosby, Stills & Nash (1969) on CD for myself for my birthday a-hard-days-night-john-6 and then while I was in Massachusetts I found a decently-priced copy of McCartney in a record shop, which makes the third Paul album I have on vinyl (my dad got me Ram and BOTR at various points years ago).

Still don't have any Macca on CD but so far I don't get the hankering to listen to his albums while driving (pretty much the only time I need CDs because our cars are old and never met an aux input a-hard-days-night-john-6) much so it doesn't much matter... perhaps I should though, 70s music is often very good for driving in my experience ahdn_george_01.

I say, there are a lot of eponymous albums in this list ahdn_george_01
