July 2020 Purchases – Vinyl & CD

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

  1. Great Scores Indeed!
    La Futura is an excellent ZZ album and your Jeff Scott Soto collection just keeps ongoing. I think you should change your name to John Scott Soto! JSS sounds good, doesn’t it?

    Great stuff as always dude. Special bonus points for Be Here Now by Oasis. Thats a great record as well.

    1. Thanks. I think I’ll keep my name for now as I would need to change the monograms on all my towels and underwear. And I didn’t realize I was getting pints for my purchases. Nice.

      And next month I believe it will be vinyl heavy month as I’ve bought a few already on my vacation plus all the ones on preorder that are coming during August.

  2. Man, I hear you on the CDs. They are so cheap now! And eBay is OK if you can find a deal. I picked up two CDs from my teen years for $1.20. I had to pay $10 shipping, but shipping in Canada is insane. So many albums from the ’90s only got a limited pressing on vinyl and they are so expensive now. Actually, all vinyl has become crazy expensive now.

    I do still need to get that ZZ Top album. It’s 8 years old already!


  3. NICE Oasis scores. That brings a smile to my face. You got two great albums and one that I don’t have any impressions of. Be Here Now takes TIME. Took me at least 5 years to like it.
