Another month gone by and a lot more purchases. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but my CD purchases have skyrocketed over the last few months. I have been to a bunch of shops that have CDs and have them cheap so I can’t help myself. However, this first batch of CDs is not from a shop. They are mostly from Amazon as my kids gave me an Amazon gift card for Father’s Day as they weren’t sure what I didn’t have (which is a valid point). So with these cards I continued my Jeff Scott Soto Collection and picked up 6 more discs (okay, one was from ebay).
I picked up Jeff Scott Soto – “Essential Ballads”; Soul Sirkus – “World Play”, W.E.T. – “W.E.T.” and “Earthrage”, SOTO – “Orgami” which is the last of the SOTO collection, and Talisman – “Talisman”. This brings me up to over 20+ now in the JSS collection and still about 20+ more to go.
Next up, my wife wanted to run back to 2nd & Charles as she needed some books and I of course wanted to tag along as they have a great used CD collection and I always find something interesting and this time was no different. I picked up a Bootleg Robbie Williams 2 CD compilation from Japan. It is called Sexed Up and it has been outlawed for sale by Discogs, but I saw one an eBay for about $30+. I payed about $3. It is an HDCD, whatever that means.
But that wasn’t the only thing I bought from there as they had a sale where you buy 2, get one free. I picked up 8 more discs including 2 more Robbie Williams CDs, 3 Oasis CDs, Ozzy’s Just Say Ozzy E.P., Candlebox’s “Lucy” and Jude Cole’s “I Don’t Know Why I Act This Way”. Not a bad haul.
And on the way home, my wife saw Noble Records and asked if I wanted to stop in, and of course I said yes. She is so awesome!! I did a little damage there as well. I picked up 2 more CDs – Cheap Trick’s “At Budokon: The Complete Concert” CD set and Thriving Ivory’s “Through Yourself & Back Again”.
I did get vinyl while I was there as well. I picked up Deep Purple’s ‘Machine Head’ and ZZ Top’s “La Futura” because I saw the documentary on Netflix and needed this album as I didn’t have it as I’m now on a ZZ Top kick.
The next thing that was purchased was neither vinyl nor CD. I have started my new obsession, Kiss Tour Books and first up is this one…not going to talk about it as I already have a post coming in August going in full detail…
And that is it…until next month
