Welcome to the February wrap-up of my album purchases for the month. I have to say Vinyl took a pretty big backseat this month as I have been going gangbusters buying back my CD collection that I once had. I decided to add more to the Paul Laine collection and start on the Will Hoge collection. I only hit one record store and it was a quick stop in to one out of town. It has been awhile since I’ve been to a local shop and oh how I’ve missed going . That means March better get some visits before I start going through withdrawal and getting the shakes and a fever.
First up, do you know when you are having a little downer of a day? When I have those, I tend to shop for music (man, I must be down a lot…I’m not). But some days when I am, I just feel better buying something and that is what I did. I ended up buying a very hard to find Paul Laine album from his band Shugaazer called ‘Shift’. This one I found in England and man did it ship fast. I think I got it in 5/6 days.
Next up, I was getting close to the Gene Simmons album Asshole in my Kiss Review Series, but honestly, I had never bought it. So, I did for like $5-6 bucks. That review will be coming up in either late April or early May, don’t know yet.
Then I got some Amazon gift cards from MyPoints.com and so I decided to start my Will Hoge CD collection back up and so I bought my two favorites…Blackbird On A Lonely Wire and Tiny Little Movies…
And if that wasn’t enough, My ad check came for the site and so I bought the rest of his collection. I am not listing, but here they are…and one didn’t show in time for this post so it will be in March’s update.
Now, Cheap Trick have a new album coming out and when I pre-ordered it, I realized I never bought their last one on vinyl called ‘We’re All Alright’. It was only $16 new, so I bought it. The only vinyl that I bought this month that actually made it in before the time of this post. My Whitesnake album, ‘The Blues Album’, didn’t make it in time.
And lastly, there was finally a stop in a record store while my daughter and I were out touring a college for her. I made it quick and only stayed about 15-20 minutes but I was successful as I found a used AC/DC album I was missing…Stiff Upper Lip!! It isn’t an original pressing as it is a re-issue, but I’ll take it.
And that was everything this month. Still a pretty decent haul and it is time to hit some local shops in March since I didn’t get to in February. I hope everyone has a great month of finding new music. See you in March for the next update. Here is everything all at once if the above pictures weren’t enough…
