Quote:
Nebraska is the sixth studio album, and the first acoustic album by Bruce Springsteen. The album was released on September 30, 1982.

Sparsely-recorded on a cassette-tape Portastudio, the tracks on Nebraska were originally intended as demos of songs to be recorded with the E Street Band.

Springsteen then recorded the album in a studio with the E Street Band. However, he and the producers and engineers working with him felt that a raw, haunted folk essence present on the home tapes was lacking in the band treatments, and so they ultimately decided to release the demo version as the final album. Springsteen fans have long speculated whether Springsteen's full-band recording of the album, nicknamed Electric Nebraska, will ever surface.

Nebraska remains one of the most highly regarded albums in his catalogue. The songs on Nebraska both deal with ordinary, blue collar characters who face a challenge or a turning point in their lives, but also outsiders, criminals and mass murderers, who have little hope for the future - or no future at all, as in the title track, where the main character is sentenced to death in the electric chair. Unlike his previous albums, very little salvation and grace is present within the songs. The album's uncompromising sound and mood, combined with its dark lyrical content has been described by a music critic as "one of the most challenging albums ever released by a major star on a major record label."

In 2003, Nebraska was ranked number 224 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Vinyl is $200+ . The CD is only 99 cents, though.

New York Dolls is the debut studio album by American hard rock band the New York Dolls, released on July 27, 1973.

In 1971, vocalist David Johansen formed the New York Dolls. They were club-going youths who had gone to New York with different career pursuits, and the band was meant to be a temporary project: "We just said 'Hey, maybe this will get us some chicks.' That seemed like a good enough reason." He and Murcia opened a clothing business across the street from a toy repair shop called the New York Dolls Hospital, which gave them the idea for their name.

On the New York Dolls' first tour of England that year (opening for The Faces), drummer Billy Murcia died after consuming a lethal combination of drugs and alcohol. After returning to New York, the band played to capacity crowds at venues such as Max's Kansas City and the Mercer Arts Center in what Sylvain felt was a determined effort to "fake it until they could make it".

The band was unappealing to record companies because of their onstage cross-dressing and vulgarity, while most record producers were reluctant to work with them. After signing a two-record deal with Mercury (some of the band members' parents had to sign for them because they were not old enough to sign themselves), the New York Dolls recorded their self-titled first album with producer Todd Rundgren.

In the studio, the New York Dolls dressed in their usual flashy clothes. Rundgren, who did not approve of their raucous sound, at one point yelled at them during the recording sessions to "get the glitter out of your asses and play". Because they had little money, the band used affordable Gibson Les Paul Junior guitars. For shock value, the band was photographed in exaggerated drag on the album cover.

After the album's release, the New York Dolls toured the US as a supporting act for English rock band Mott the Hoople.

New York Dolls has since been often cited as one of the greatest debut albums in rock music, one of the genre's most popular cult records, and a foundational work for the late 1970s punk rock movement.

In 2003, Rolling Stone placed the record at number 213 on its list of the 500 greatest albums.

American Beauty is the sixth album by the rock band the Grateful Dead, released in November 1970.

The band began recording American Beauty only a few months after the release of Workingman's Dead. Both Workingman's Dead and American Beauty were innovative at the time for their fusion of bluegrass, rock and roll, folk, and, especially, country music. American Beauty focused more on major-key melodies and folk harmonies, evincing the influence of Dylan and studio neighbors/friends Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young. Drummer Bill Kreutzmann commented, "The singers in our band really learned a lot about harmonizing from Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, who had just released their seminal album Déjà Vu. Stephen Stills lived at Mickey's ranch...and David Crosby enjoyed partying as much as we did. So our circles overlapped."

"Truckin'" and "Ripple" were released as singles, and the songs "Box of Rain", "Sugar Magnolia", and "Friend of the Devil" also received radio play.

The title wording on the front cover is an ambigram; it can also be read as "American Reality".

In 2003, the album was ranked number 258 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Nah, at the risk of provoking more wrath from the vinyl-bashers, the thrill of the hunt is part of the fun of building my collection, and chasing a few rarities just makes it more challenging.

On a similar note, I prefer finding well-loved used LPs at hole-in-the-wall record stores over shrink-wrapped reissues easily available from amazon or big box stores.

Some people collect baseball cards. Some collect comic books. Some collect pez dispensers. I enjoy collecting (and listening to) vinyl.
