Last week, I hinted that I was likely to be receiveing a Grail List item. You guys thought maybe it was GBV/Pollard-related, or Sloan. Great guesses! But not this time.
Today it arrived! It’s beautiful!
Yup, that’s right! A first print, Bloodshot Records copy of the wonderful Ryan Adams debut album Heartbreaker, on CD! I am very happy about this. I used to own a copy ages ago, went to replace it and found it’s harder to get than it should be. The Canadian Amazon site lists it at $33.65 used or $72.95 new! Haha no. There are copies on Discogs now but when I looked last time there were only a few, and all also quite dear. No matter, I got this copy from Mike’s old store for $7. YAY!
I can’t wait to dig into it. Even just looking at the track listing, all the songs flooded back into my brain. This is gonna be awesome!
