I did it again. I found loads more $1 goodness at the thrift shoppes. Will I ever stop? Ha probably not, but it’s looking (again) like it may need a culling around here, shortly. I’m working on current criteria for that.
Apologies, I didn’t quite manage alphabetical order this time. The finds:
Billie Holiday – Billie’s Blues I mean, c’mon. I love, love, love Billie Holiday. Bon Jovi – Cross Road I didn’t have a Hits set for these guys. I know this isn’t likely the best one, but for $1, no problem. Dropkick Murphys – The Warrior’s Code Their first album, Do Or Die, remains one of my favourite things. I will enjoy a later effort! Roberta Flack – Softly With These Songs: The Best Of Roberta Flack I already had a Flack set of hits, but not this one. I’ll comapre and see which one is better.
Lena Horne – Greatest Hits Same as Billie Holiday, I mean, c’mon. A must-grab. Kings of Leon – Come Around Sundown I was pretty sure I’d heard this years ago, and I had! In 2014! Time for another go. Max Rebo Band – Return Of The Jedi Special Edition This is a really cool one-track single, with most of the disc clear plastic and just the middle bit silver CD. Neat-o! Run-D.M.C. – Run-D.M.C. vs Jason Nevis Remixes: Greatest Hits 1983-1998 I don’t know if I’ll like this or not. I like the originals. Do I need remixes? We’ll see.
Runrig – Long Distance: The Best Of Runrig I associate this act with Wolfstone, from half a lifetime ago, and a Hits set here pleases me greatly. Maybe my favourite score of the excursion, honestly. Soundgarden – King Animal For some reason I didn’t have this one. Oversiiiiiight corrected! Cat Stevens – Greatest Hits I mean, sure, why not. Urinesane – Home Recordings Bought purely on spec, still in the shrinkwrap. Turns out to be a local band from a couple of towns over. No idea what it sounds like, but I’m gonna find out!
Various: Blacktop Guerillas 2005 Canadian Campus Compilation (Mohawk College) These college discs are fun. Bring it! Various – Campus Sessions 2002-2003 A lot of excellent acts here, and some stuff that persuaded me to grab it up right quick. Various – Rok: Music World, EMI Music Canada, Virgin Music Canada Present Back in the day, Music World had cool compilations. I’d never seen this one before. Various – The Tarantino Collection I get why they made this, and it’s a cool time capsule, but he isn’t done making films and this dropped before Kill Bill, even, so I hope they make another one when he’s done.
Various – Murder Was The Case: The Soundtrack CD/DVD Not really my wheelhouse, so it’s a New To Me disc, really. The whole Death Row Records thing is not something I’ve followed. But this is a CD and a DVD for $1 so, really, even if it isn’t my thing I’m not out much.
Mojo Magazine 2021-08 and Uncut Magazine 2021-08. Going back to the early 90s and CMJ New Music Monthly, I’ve always loved buying magazines that come with CDs. Yes, I am a dinosaur. I know some folks will ditch the CDs and keep the magazines, but I do the reverse. I’ll (usually) eventually (after ages) get rid of the magazine but I keep the CDs. The music is the real meat in the meal, for me!
Whew. That’s a ton. I’ll get to ‘em eventually, as I go through all this stuff I’m finding. Thanks for Reading!
