I went vinyl shopping again. I figured that it had been a while since I hit Generation Records, maybe their bins have been replenished. Here's what I got:

Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds Of Fire (Tony, you wanna talk chords you can't play and numbers you don't undertand?)
Mahavishnu W/ Carlos Santana - Love, Devotion, Surrender (the cover looks very peaceful....John M and Carlos are all dressed in white with Sri Chinmoy buttons)
Monty Python - Another Monty Python Record (replaces the one I lost, great record....'Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore...')
Cop Shoot Cop - Ask Questions Later (seminal industrial band)
Phil Lynott - The Phillip Lynott Album (his last solo effort featuring Mark Knopfler among other featured guests)
Missing Persons - Spring Session M (Indeed nobody does walk in LA)
Raven - Live (I had to, I'm sorry, I have a problem, I know)
The Red Hot Chili Peppers - The Red Hot Chili Peppers (so classic)
Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells (one must own it, it's the law)
Poco - Live (I had to solve the whole 'where did Tomothy B. Schmitt come from' issue)
The Monkees - Headquarters (this was their last LP, where they wrote the songs and did it 'their' way, couldn't resist)
Randy Newman - Little Criminals (Short People was the first song I knew all the words to)
Stevie Nicks - Belladonna (Tom Petty, Waddy Wachtel, enough of a reason)
Ry Cooder - Paradise And Lunch - (On Fred's recommendation)
Cheech And Chong - Cheech And Chong (Cheech and Chong made great records before they got lost in Hollywood)

I noticed a lot of new vinyl, reissues, in the racks. A bunch of Dylan, Kinks, the Boss. The average price of used vinyl has risen about 20% in the past three years. That's actually very good news.

Cool. I need a new turntable. My Technics finally shit the bed. Not bad I guess. I payed I think $150 for it and it lasted me 10 years. I still have the cartridge. I'll either get another one, or one of these that my friend raves about: http://www.sumikoaudio.net/project/products/debut.htm . I want my vinyl back! Mmm,
Motorhead's No Remorse in leather jacket.

The guys in Raven will be stunned to get their royalty check from your purchase. Some good stuff you found on this run.


Be careful of Jackson's vinyl influence. While discussing the current S&M projects he has going on during his last visit down here, he pulled a pocket watch out of his jacket to presumably check the time, next thing I know I've got Jennifer Wilbanks eyes and I'm driving to Best Buy to purchase a new turntable.

He's a crafty one...
Thanks, Tony, but I always have a turntable on hand. I'm totally distressed that mine died. Time for an upgrade.
