A couple o’ new records this month. A couple I’ve been after for a while and I’m pleased to be able to change the list font to ‘strike-through. Hurrah! All in very nice condition and snapped up for a nice wee price. So here goes.
AC/DC‘s Back In Black and Replicas by Tubeway Army at £5 each
Two really great albums. Spotted these in the Record Fayre and at £5 each I couldn’t resist. Back In Black has a surface mark or two, but it sounds incredible. Tubeway Army is a Dutch pressing. Had to pick this up after recently being reminded of it’s sheer isolatingly mechanical awesomeness (say what now!?).
The Cars: Heartbeat City (sticker tear in the top left corner) and the self-titled debut by The Cars.
Interestingly I hadn’t thought about The Cars for a while. Hadn’t really bothered much with anything beyond Candy-O, either. Maybe a cursory listen. However, another reminder of how incredible these guys are was timely, as I spotted Heartbeat City in the Record fayre for just £2. The self-titled debut was picked up on Discogs for £1 (+ £3.50 postage) as it’s an all-timer. A definite favourite (and you can expect a post about that in future now that I have the LP).
The Afghan Whigs‘ Gentleman. The single LP ‘At 21’ reissue. Looks like a replica of the original Sub Pop / Blast First UK release, too (£16.52 from Amazon).
AC/DC‘s Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (£5) and Jeff Beck‘s Beck-Ola (a US 80s reissue by the looks of things – £6).
Record fair time at the Rutherglen Exchange. I had a list of 8 records that I was hoping to see. Unfortunately I only found one of them. still, I had spotted Beck-Ola last time round and sorta regretted not buying it. It’s a tremendous record. Ol’ Rod in fine voice (still very much in the vocal extraordinaire stage) and a fantastic opener in All Shook Up. So, £11 well spent there.
