It was lousy weather today but that couldn’t stop us for making our yearly road trip to Cobourg Ontario for a visit to Zap Records! We made loose plans to go today since it was a full two weeks since our 2nd shot and our bathroom renos are 98% done. The driving was a little white knuckle-ish at times, but we took our time and made it through the rain.
Since it was a weekday, we made sure to bring some change for the parking meter only to find out they don’t use change any longer! You have to download an app onto your phone and pay with a credit card. I guess we just take for granted that everyone has smart phones and plastic money these days. Anyway, this is what I got:
I found some FM and Nash the Slash I haven’t seen anywhere else. Aaron over at Keeps Me Alive is sending me FM’s Tonight on CD already, but this is GREEN vinyl. I couldn’t pass it up! The Motorhead album is a special two disc version of their first, On Parole. The rest is Saga’s World’s Apart, West, Bruce, Laige’s Whatever Turns You On, and two Mountain LPs, Avalanche and Twin Peaks which is a double live. Finally, The Rolling Stones Made In The Shade which I thought was a live album. Turns out to be a compilation. Oops. Well, at least it is a good one!
On our way back from Cobourg we stopped in at Kops Records in the ‘shwa and I think I did alright:
The Crazy Horse album is without Neil. I’ve streamed it before and it is pretty darn good. I’ve never seen it on vinyl before, so I thought I’d better snag it. They had Aldo Nova, Saga, and a bunch of Max Webster for solid prices, so they’re mine now. I picked up another copy of FM’s Black Noise in hopes that it would sound a little cleaner than the copy I have, but it is mostly fail. Well, it should make for a good gift for only $3 moosebucks.
They also started selling used CDs again. I keep telling myself that I can’t buy them because I don’t really have the room, but the prices are too hard to ignore. Pay no attention to the price tags because they had a whack deal where you if you bought $15 moosebucks worth, they would drop it to 10. So, the three Beatles Anthology albums had $10 moosebucks each on them, but they only charged me $20. Two of them were still sealed! Geez, I remember when they were $35-40 moosebucks a piece back in the day. Anyway, there is too much to go through it all. Just look at the photo and fire away if you have any questions!
