I found the Russian Futurists debut album at a store for 92 cents. A pristine vinyl copy of Jimi Hendrix's "In the West" for 99 cents. For a shiny quarter, Donald Fagen's "The Nightfly". The blue 10" vinyl version of Eels' "Electro-Shock Blues", 2 copies, a buck apiece.

Tweet 'Southern Hummingbird' - I think that it was mislabelled or something, in the sale bin at JB HiFi. Cheaper than downloading/burning it!

Michael Dieter, Tuesday, 30 September 2003 05:52 (12 years ago) Permalink

No, I got my copy of Tweet for $2 from JB too. Vast overstock, it seems, based on nobody buying the album after the single did well. It was worth a couple of times more than that just for the single, and also "Drunk".

Original pressing of the first Neu! album in a suburban junk shop 10 years ago. Only cost me a pound!

I got the first three Slowdive vinyl EPs at a store in Montreal for a dollar each. Yee-ha! I'm sure there's some Slowdive-haters out there who are ready to post some witty remark, bit I don't care - those EPs were fab.

I think probably 95% of what I've ever bought has been really cheap. I try to avoid paying over £6 for a CD and/or vinyl if possible and it usually works, if you're patient and/or diligent. Also buying cheaply is a great way of investigating bands/artists you might never have considered investigating before.

well chuffed with the sunday best cd, 'palace of pleasure'. mad off the wall orb-like dubbed up ambience mixed with gorgeous melodies and all sorts of extra sonic fun.

That Goldhawk Road R&TE was the business. My best find in there (amongst many good ones) was probably a nice original gatefold copy of the Upsetters "Return of Django" LP for 20p. I think Harvey was there that day.

I got a pristine mid-50's Oscar Petterson album on Clef for around a buck.

....Much more - those are the first that come to mind.

Ah man, Tunes in Marlton used to be my shit. Especially when the Philly college stations dropped off their promos and that shit went straight into the 5 for 3 section.

Weird pricing in that place though - I remember once they got some Krautrock stuff in on CD and one Ash Ra CD was like $30, one was $20 and another was in the 5 for 3 bin despite being in perfect shape.

at the LC Store the other day i was buying VHS cos they were 60 cents. i brought a stack of like 12 to the counter and she said oh it's 4 for a dollar.

one of the tapes was something called "MOODTAPES" that has a very Miami Vice looking font on the front and the back has white typeface on black looking like a science book from the 80s or something, with shots of sunsets and timelapse cloud footage. the music is incredible. i'll definitely put it on youtube eventually but i think if i slow it down it may become a chillwave classic.

the tape has a subtitle "Tranquility"

apologies for the really bad quality and there is a bunch of stuff going on in the background cos i did not use audio in and the camera is messing with the lighting and the tv is all distorted because i used it for a noise instrument for a while. but it really just only makes it more psychedelic.

I used to manage Tunes in Hoboken. The pricing was/is based entirely on the going rate on amazon per item. That's why used stuff is all sorts of strangely priced. Funny cause they have the software that adjusts the online listing of the item, but they won't reprice the label until they do like a 6 month aged inventory. Therefore sometimes there ends up being large discrepancies between the in-store price and the online listing of the same item.

a dollar each at the book store around the corner from my house this morning.

Wow, that's a great haul Scott! I love those Adderley titles; some of my favorite stuff of his.

So much great stuff in that buy!

wow. my generous Value Village haul today now looks paltry by comparison.

I always wonder about the backstory of how certain records made it to second-hand shops. Did someone suddenly decide they hate Roxy Music and Art Blakey?

Found an Angus MacLise CD at Goodwill yesterday for $1. Definitely curious how it ended up there.

possible they upgraded to the new remastered editions and so cleared out the old editions ?

(i have done this myself a few times over the years)

They're CDs, so they probably ripped them and sold the physical to de-clutter. People don't generally need CDs for anything beyond being backups with liner notes.

Good point, hadn't considered that.

I know a lot of folks who are transferring all their CDs to files on their computers & dumping the physical media.

Do downloads count? I just bought the mp3 of 'Black Unity' by Pharoah Sanders for £0.79 on amazon.co.uk!

Hey, Adam, thanks for posting the Moodtape. The sounds of domesticity in the background don't hurt at all, ha.

Amazing haul, Scott - what's in the bottom row in the second pic besides Roxy Music? Some Tzadik thing and something with sigils all over it?

And thanks for the info, Evan, figured it was something like that...

No prob!

Speaking of Scott's haul, lets all pretend Sun Kil Moon LPs stopping coming out after 2010.

"Gee Scott, that Sun Kil Moon album is outstanding. Have you heard it? Wonder what ever happened to that guy!"

nice! i wonder what the other videos are like...?

Captain Maximus glad you found a better version, my cats were running around like lunatics when i was filming, actually ended up crashing into the camera and that's why there's an edit halfway through mine =)

Maybe Moodtapes universally drive cats crazy? We should all experiment.
