As I mentioned in part one, October was such a good month for adding new tunes to the collection that I had to split the post into two. Part one is all of my eBay, amazon, and other purchases that you can read right here. Part Deux, features all of my mission thrift pickups I got for $2! That’s a Canadian Toonie each, folks!
Now, on with the countdown:
I’m slowly building a decent collection of CDs from The Strokes. I’ve already picked up their first two albums from the mission thrift now I have their third, The First Impressions of Earth from 2006. I recognized the first tune, You Only Live Once. As of now but that is as far as I got. Look forward to the future spin.
Someone dumped out of their Paul Simon collection which is good news for me. The only tune I knew from Graceland is You Can Call Me Al. I loved the video for it with Chevy Chase when I was a kid. I listened to the whole thing the other night and it is very nice. I haven’t gotten around to his debut yet, but it has to be good, right?
I had never heard Bonnie Raitt’s Road Tested before but of course it is good. Guests include Bryan Adams, Jackson Browne, and Bruce Hornsby. I had a “back up” copy of Buddy Guy’s Sweet Tea back in the day. It’s a bit of a mellow one but there is still some great guitar work on it.
The Blues Brothers was my introduction to Sam & Dave. Otis Redding and the Coasters, are great albums to put on while doing chores around the house. Just like how…
…Sarah and I listened of Marvin Gaye Live! last night while making dinner the other night and it… cooks. I haven’t got to Barry White yet. Michael Jackson’s Bad I had on cassette when I was a kid. So that’s a bit of a nostalgia grab. I also had on cassette…
…Cocktail – The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. It is not great but loaded with memories. I still know all of the words to The Beach Boys Kokomo because of it. Speaking of The Beach Boys…
…how about The Pet Sounds Sessions for $2? Even this basic 3CD set goes for $40 on eBay. With the Beatles is labeled as a German mono version, but all of the artwork is in English. So, I’ll have to do some research on that one.
And finally, I got both kinds of music. Some country and some western.
Keen observers of this series will note how I already picked up a Willie Nelson collection last month, but The Essential is a deeper dive with a second disc, so why not? Kenny’s Twenty is all the Kenny I’ll ever need.
And that is all of it. CDs are so fun to collection when their $2. Stay locked in to this blog for more coming soon!
