Bought a couple more records yesterday at the Record Fayre. I honestly don’t reckon I’ve went in there for a look around and left feeling like it wasn’t a worthwhile endeavour. Yesterday I unearthed a couple o’ wee bargains – Songs Of Leonard Cohen and a copy of Tattoo You, which just happens to be one of my favourite Rolling Stones albums. Strangely enough, I was close to buying both of these albums last week at the record fair I’d dropped in on. Would have cost me a fair deal more, too. Double, actually.
I was actually more chuffed about getting Tattoo You. Now, some might consider that peculiar and I certainly know a few folks who aren’t big fans of that particular Stones record. However, I honestly think it’s an incredible record. Surprisingly, it’s mostly composed of outtakes recorded during the ’70s (there’s also a couple that had been recorded during the Emotional Rescue sessions – another album that’s under-appreciated, I reckon).
Anyhoo, it was £7 well spent. Can’t complain about that, can you? Back to thinking about the next ‘All-timer’ post!
