$1 in a record store in Key West about 10 years ago. The same store wanted $18 for a Men At Work album. I took the Neil record up to the counter: "You don't want to buy that, it is crap." I begged to differ.

― curmudgeon, Sunday, 16 November 2008 03:36 (5 years ago) Permalink
Cool! Mistakes was by far Grupo Sportivo's best album (at least of the four or so I've heard), and one of the great lost new wave albums, period, as far as I'm concerned. Pretty sure, though, that it was actually a compilation of the best tracks from a couple import (Dutch, I guess?) LPs I've never actually seen. In the States it originally came with a free 7-inch 6-song EP called More Mistakes tucked inside. Key track on EP: "Disco Really Made It (It's Yucky And I Hate It)." Still have my copy. But the LP's a lot better than the EP.

I found the Cure's Happily Ever After CD in a cutout bin for $1.00 in 1990. Its just a US compilation of 17 Seconds and Faith, which went out of print two months after its release (with, as I recall, 2000 copies outstanding). I sold it in 1997 on Ebay for $125 to some completist fanboy. Probably the best investment I've ever made.

A friend of mine, who's a master digger, chanced upon a copy of The World of Cecil Taylor for pennies in the Salvation Army recently. It's pretty gubbed, but still, that's a rare and valuable record, not least cos it was reissued under a different name.
I've not managed any such finds, but I've picked up some nice stuff in that shop nonetheless, not least some 70s Dylan albums for 25p. Problem is that there are always diggers lurking there, waiting to pounce on any new donations.
My favourite £1 buy was a Rutles picture sleeve ep with Cheese & Onions, I Must Be In Love and A Girl Like You on it. It's not in the Record Collector guide, but it's not something I've ever come across.

Vinyl I bought today. (Still like the specificity of this thread more than that catch-all rolling vinyl one.)
$2, thrift store, 46th and Queens Blvd, Sunnyside:
Steve Arrington's Hall of Fame I (Atlantic, 1983)
$4 total (= less than 50 cents each), vintage store, 48th and Skillman, Sunnyside:
Automatic Man Automatic Man (Island, 1976)The Stanky Brown Group If The Lights Don't Get You The Helots Will (Sire, 1977) (if the band is stanky and brown rather than Stanky Brown being somebody's name, this should be filed in the S's rather than B's obviously)Hoagy Carmichael Hoagy (RCA, 1981)Desmond Child And Rouge Desmond Child And Rouge (Capitol, 1979)Ducks Deluxe Don't Mind Rockin' Tonite (RCA, 1978) (already had this, but what the heck, I'm sure I'll find use for another one someday)Gazebo Gazebo (Baby Italy, 1983)Puhdys Das Buch (Pool West Germany, 1984)Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes This Time It's For Real (Epic, 1977)Randy Travis Old 8 x 10 (Warner Bros., 1988)
Probably not the first time I've tried those Desmond Child and Southside Johnny LPs. Maybe this time they'll sink in. Or maybe I am just a glutton for punishment.
Passed up a couple other 50-cent '80s Randy Travis LPs, but Xgau gave them worse grades than the one I bought, so maybe that was smart. Passed on a 50-cent 1987 Guadalcanal Diary LP too (what did they sound like?), and a $2 1989 LP by Joe Hardy-produced New York hard rock band Law and Order, though if George advises otherwise, I'll go back for that one.

Automatic Man Automatic Man (Island, 1976)
Don't know if you'll like this. Requires more than one listen. Extension of Stomu Yamashita's Go, sort of, which was an experiment on jazz and middle of the road hard rock, the latter furnished by Pat Thrall, who made a lot more money with Pat Travers later but quit that, too, after co-writing "Smoking Whiskey, Drinkin' Cocaine." Anyway, Automatic Man is nothing like that. It's very spacey, often almost frictionless, sometimes veering into prog. One of the members -- singer/bassist, I think, is now much more famous as a songwriter/producer under another name. Plus Michael Shrieve's in the band as a kind of poor man's Jan Hammer. I like it but was there at the beginning. Definitely an acquired taste but not so convincing that you'd have stuck around for the second album, which was colored pink instead of blue, like this one.
Don't remember a great amount about Law & Order except that I had it on cassette, my band played with them in Allentown, and they were good guys. Kind of in the Circus of Power style but better although not that much so. They were part of the major label wave of second and third tier signings in the late Eighties of metal rock 'n' roll bands that were supposed to be more gritty and from-the-street than the hitmakers. Published about the same times as The Throbs and Vain and were in the same, uh, vein. About six months later, grunge washed them all away. Toss up whether it's worth 2 bucks. Depends on the whether and how much loose change you have in your pocket.

$2, thrift store, 46th and Queens Blvd, Sunnyside, today:
The Geraldine Fibbers Get Thee Gone (Sympathy For The Record Industry 10-inch EP, c. '90s I guess)
An extravagance, since I am a total fetishizing sucker when it comes to 10-inch EPs (even though it is impossible to find inner sleeves). Plus I've never liked anything by these '90s indie art roots nerds before (not that I've listened much), and why would this be any different? But I used to be (very) mildly curious about the Fibbers, and I figure, if I'm ever going to like anything by them, this'd be about the correct amount of songs. Plus they cover Dolly's "Jolene" on it; how bad could that be? (Pretty bad, but I'll probably keep it anyway.)
Of the last batch of cheapos I bought, I wound up liking Automatic Man more than George predicted. Also liked Arrington, Stanky Brown Group (its more pompy rocky Tully first side anyway), Hoagy, Desmond Child (a lot actually -- not sure anybody was ever more disco-metal), Gazebo, Puhdys (though '70s LPs I have by them rock harder), Southside Johnny (well that one's pretty darn marginal but I like when the Coasters show up at least), and Randy Travis. Which means I wound up liking the whole pile, I guess.

This record sounds like a frog being choked while someone laboriously puts a guitar out of tune, but I love it; only thing I ever liked by them. Bought it when it came out & would buy a nearly infinite number for $2 each, or half of infinity for $4/ea. It was around the time of Uncle Tupelo's breakup and we were all looking for a new hip alternative country act. Didn't find it; found a choking frog. Still!

I just have to put in a good word here for the Fibbers' two proper albums, the 1st of which is a favorite of mine.

Outer sleeves, what? (I think I have maybe three of those, out of several thousand albums. Never really understood what purpose they serve, unless the record cover is made out of paper. Though I actually think I own a 10-inch somewhere where that's the case.) Will look into those inner ones, though...

I always find great records at salvation armies in Queens. Lots of old-school italian outer-borough disco DJs who've moved on.

Almost all! Several of the most recent finds are still sinking in, though. And I'm still on a fence about that Tracy Nelson album that Christgau gave a C- to.
Favorites so far: KC & Sunshine, Mandel, Kaleidoscope, Martinez, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, War, Rheingold, Foxes (esp. the very disco-metal side 3 w/ Angel and Keith Forsey), Material, Rex, Schnazz, Skyy, Stanley Band.
NY R&R Ensemble isn't nearly as heavy as their followup from 1970, so that's definitely kinda disappointing. And I'm regretfully starting to realize I respect Dick Gaughan's Socialist-leaning Celtic folk more than I actually enjoy listening to it. (I've got 2 albums by him, both live -- Not sure I've ever even heard a studio one.)

Er...SCOTTISH folk, I meant.
Horslips are the Celtic ones. Music if not vocals on the album I just got sounds sufficiently Tull-like so far; seems like it could use more Lizzy, though (compared to the stuff by them I've liked most in the past; e.g., "Sure The Boy Was Green" off Aliens.)
