Almost all my hundreds of awesome 80's albums. Flea markets & cutout bins rule. Just yesterday- the first 3 Eurythmics, Ministry, Platinum Blonde, Gen X, Crowded House, Red Rockers & a few more. Favorite scores ever, maybe the first 3 Wire albums! How about favorite albums found in the trash?

I once purchased a "Go West" album and a "Head East" album for a buck a piece just to see what the clerk's reaction would be. He didn't even seem to notice. This really pissed me off for some reason so i kind of subtley flipped him off on my way out.

Neil Young - "On The Beach" vinyl

$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.

Woah. Was waiting for the bus in my college days (late 70s) and it started to rain so I ducked into the Western Auto (Olympia WA).... browsing through the $1.99 bin full of Conway Twitty and Buck Owens albums I scored a Gato Barbieri LP, Sun Ra's Heliocentric Worlds Vol 1 (ESP), and Ornette's "NY Eye and Ear Control".

I have never, ever, ever, ever, had that kind of weird luck again.

Purchased for one Canadian dollar, after which it went on to become my alltime favourite. The most lopsided deal since Dutch settlers bought Manhattan Island for $24 worth of beads. (Altho that's probably just a myth.)

Grupo Sportivo- Mistakes

Skids-Scared to Dance

curmudgeon, Sunday, 16 November 2008 03:36 (seven 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.

xhuxk, Saturday, 24 January 2009 21:08 (seven years ago) Permalink

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.

i've been obsessed of late with all Patrick Adams productions and was thrilled to find an original 12" of Universal Robot Band "Freak With Me" for $1.39 at Other Music, of all the places.

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!

staggerlee, Tuesday, 10 February 2009 01:54 (seven years ago) Permalink

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.

You think finding inner sleeves for 10" records is hard? Try finding OUTER sleeves!

sleeve, Tuesday, 10 February 2009 02:14 (seven years ago) Permalink

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.

But tonight during dinner I listened to Joe Jackson's Night and Day, one of THE most ubiquitous dollar-bin records, at least in these parts, and I think it's a pretty wonderful record.

dan selzer, Tuesday, 10 February 2009 04:02 (seven years ago) Permalink

Jesus, I was just looking at craigslist for used CD's, and it's astonishing to think that people actually think they're going to be able to offload all their regrettable mid-late 90's junk (Backstreet Boys et al), for $5 a disc, but there's dozens of these people. One person was selling the Lion King Soundtrack for $10.

75 cents each, Value Village, Houston, this afternoon, all vinyl:

Ray Charles Modern Sounds In Country And Western Music (ABC Paramount, early '60s) (I used to own a late '80s reissue, but this one's the original pressing. Looks pretty scratched up though.)
Gulliver Gulliver (Elekta, early '70s I guess?) (Don't think I ever even heard of this before -- Daryl Hall's pre-Hall & Oates band)
Stacey Q "Shy Girl" (On The Spot 12-inch, 1985) (pre-debut LP indie-label single; already own the 7-inch.)
(Various) Every Which Way But Loose (Elektra, 1978) (w/ Eddie Rabbit, Charlie Rich, Mel Tillis, Hank Thompson, and lots of instrumentals about orangutans, apparently)

I really like Lenola a lot but you might not? The Swerving Corpse is super wonky. A Northern Chorus sounds nice. Haven't ever listened to them, or not since 2003 when they would probably come on some early internet radio stations I used to check out. They seem familiar is all.
