I got 2 records today

1) Johnny Mathis - The sounds of christmas (Mono)
2) Daryl Hall and John Oats - Bigger than both of us

I also got U2 - Live at red rocks and was dissapointed!

Only 8 songs they did were on that album and only 2 OF THEM were actually from that day! (5 June 83) I am glad to have the WHOLE CONCERT on VHS - That was thier BEST CONCERT!! (They went downhill after 1983)

Ill get rid of that record...........

Today I got "Natures Mystic Moods" on cassette..

Side 1 is the sound of a Storm (Recorded in the High Sierras and Side 2 is the sound of an Ocean (Recorded Near San Francisco))

Recordings were made in 1974 so it should be LIVE naturistic sounds AS IF YOU WERE THERE........

I had another tape that was THE SEA and something else but it was that ambient crap (Tape was made in 1990 or 1991,i cant remember... Not good at all)

I also got the movie "Down and out in Beverly hills" (1986) on VHS


EDIT:

The tape IS EXCELLENT.. (Figured it would be)

Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack cassette. Probably the very last cassette tape I will buy in my life. I'm going to dub it onto a TDK metal tape with the metal housing. I still have an unopened brick. I haven't copied anything on tape since the late 80's.

Gotta be Godzilla!! I grew up on the old Toho versions, and have long wanted to a truly epic take on it. This is that movie.

Very nice buddy!!


I got 2 records on Wednesday

1) Styx - Equinox (EXCELLENT -- I HAVE ALREADY LISTENEND TO IT)
2) Pat Benetar - Precious time (I have this on cassette also)


I do feel guilty however.... On my Styx Album is a sticker from a record store that used to be in town here and it has thier price listed... $6.99 and here I got it for 99 cents!!

I do feel guilty getting all this beautiful media for almost nothing,I feel like I am stealing it/not respecting it!!

I bought 4 copies over the holidays to give out to my friends who are Bruce Lee fans. It was always going in and out stock at BB before Christmas. Awesome deal compared to what Amazon and other sites are charging for it.

Seems that everyone posting here is buying vinyl or cassettes? I sold off all of my LP's about 10 years ago.. after having gone for nearly 10 years before that without having a working turntable and cartridge . . .
By the time I sold all my albums I had already replaced many of them with CD's, and since that time I buy a few more every now and then.

The latest were four that I bought this week.. two replaced albums I once had, the other two were "new" (because I never owned them before).

The replacements:
Steppenwolf - Steppenwolf
Steppenwolf - At Your Birthday Party

The "new" ones:
Dire Straits - Love Over Gold
Dire Straits - On Every Street

I had previously bought both of those Steppenwolf LP's when they first came out. Listening to these CD's brings back at lot of memories. There's one track (was never a "hit") that for many many years I would "hear" bits of in my head (like when in the shower or something) but I could never "place" it.. I couldn't ever recall who or what it was, or remember enough of it to be able to try to search it out. Now I know... "It's Never Too Late" from At Your Birthday Party. Great Stuff!!! That little 3 second guitar wail right at about 2:50 had played a million times in my head while showering (it must have made a real impression when I was 15). Whatever happened to ORGANS in rock music?

The Dire Straits is ok I guess, maybe it will grow on me. But it's not near as good as the other four Dire Straits CD's that I already owned . . .


To anyone interested in a Google Chromebox or Chromebook..
Be aware that these boxes run a variant of Linux and DO NOT support HDCP!!!
This means no support for HD on most streaming services. I wish I would have known this beforehand....

Blu-rays & DVD's
