A while back, when Charlton was in town, we went by Generation Records, ostensibly to find the new Mawell release - they didn't have it. You can't just go buy a new record in NYC anymore. At any rate, we picked up a record while we were there, of course.

Talking Heads - Speaking in Tongues. (1983)

A must have that I shamefully had never owned. Packed full of classics, I'm glad to remedy the offense.

Then, a couple of weeks later when Tony Alva hit town, we went back to Generation Records.

Triumph - Just a Game (1979)

The Canadian power Trio's third record, featuring 'Lay It On The Line'.

Montrose - Warner Bros. Presents (1975)

Ronnie's self monikered band's third release, their first post Sammy Hagar record.

Cat Stevens - Tea for the Tillerman (1970)

Yet another classic that I should have already had in the collection.

Billie Holiday - Embraceable You (1957-59)

We needed some Billie. We got a double LP's worth.

Gyspy Kings - Gypsy Kings (1988)

Gotta love this one, total chops all around.

Falco - 3

The LP featuring 'Rock Me Amadeus'. Those following along may remember that our 12" of 'Rock Me Amadeus' is warped.

Electric Light Orchestra - II

My ELO collection is now 'complete' - in the sense that I have all I'm interested in. I don't have or want the first or last record, or the 'Xanadu' soundtrack.

All in all, a great haul.

We all need some Billie Holliday in our lives.
I did end up wanting the first Elo record
