The last record you bought?


Recommended Posts

Duke Ellington doing Mary Poppins.  Not sure how many records he made covering other composers material, but this one is everything you'd expect....and then some.

The original score has remained a fave of mine since I first heard it soemwhere around age 4.

A Charlie Brown Christmas (Walmart exclusive) blue vinyl with snowflakes. Had to pay a bit of a premium on Amazon. It was a gift for my great nephew and I am thinking about buying one for myself.

I work at a used record store 2 days a week, I used to work there full time. I have about 3000 lp's. I'm not saying the 2 are related...

 

Yesterday, I scored one of my holy grail lp's, Centipede's Septober Energy, the original 1971 double lp British pressing. Centipede was a 50-piece Avant-Jazz/Rock ensemble led by pianist Keith Tippet, who had just recently guested on King Crimson's Wake of Poseidon, and featuring many of the best UK jazz players of the era. Robert Fripp produced the album. It has been nearly unobtainable for the last 3-decades or so I've been looking for it, it was only released on CD in Japan, and the CD is just about as hard to find as the LP. I'd recently read Sid Smith's biography covering 50 years of King Crimson, which reminded me that I'd never found a copy. So, imagine my surprise to find it  at my store yesterday! $40, which is on the low-end for what it can go for.

I've lost track of the last batch of used albums I bought - I go shopping for used things about once every 6 weeks at a couple of beloved local shops. I'm hoping to do this tomorrow. I remember finding a Madness album during my last shopping trip, which was one I didn't have on vinyl, but on CD (I believe just the "Madness" album, which has plenty of hits).

 

The last new vinyl I bought was Tears For Fears' latest release, The Tipping Point. Great album!

Today I purchased King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and No Earthly Connection by Rick Wakeman. Both great albums, but only recommended if you’re into cheesy mellotron and Moog synthesizer solos from the Seventies.

I have Arthur and Journey.  Used to have Earthly Connection….

 

Arthur sounds much better on vinyl than Journey does, IMO.
