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 (fourteen 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.

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.
