My vinyl

Recently enjoyed. I think I got this at Academy, or maybe Other Music. It’s a Big Beat 1986 reissue. Fine by me. It was only $14.00! I know it was about 5 years ago, because I remember seeing a copy of the original at Rhino Records in New Paltz for $80 and vowing to find it for less. I pulled it out because Give Me Another Chance was haunting me after finally watching the documentary. It’s on Netflix. Watch it if you haven’t. They seem to dance around comparisons to The Beatles-almost as good as any Beatles album and such like. C’mon, it’s totally as good as any Beatles album. It’s just a little more emotionally fraught. Sometimes that’s a good thing.

I saw the ghost of Ronnie Lane at the free Teenage Fanclub show. It made me strangely happy to see someone rocking such a precise Laney vibe. I love this photo, because my other favorite singer songwriter bass player, Gerald Love, is on stage just above the Lane specter’s head. Teenage Fanclub are one of the best bands ever and try displayed their assets as per usual. They only played The Concept off their breakout album Bandwagonesque, but not than made up for it with generous helpings off Songs From Northern Britain (a superior record IMHO). Bless the Fannies!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I told him about how happy his look made me and he denied knowing who Ronnie Lane is. Fair enough. Then a friend told me that this guy is the singer for a band called Nude Beach who is texting? i got a new phone and your name is not listed with your your #. are apparently good. I guess I’ll check em out….

Recently enjoyed. Happy birthday Joey! I forget where I got this, but it’s a Spanish import, so it was not too expensive. I know I got in the early 90s in Wisconsin. No lee than $15 bucks. Maybe 12! If I inly had one Ramones album it would be this one. Breezing through 28 songs on 4 sides. The best of their initial strike. The vice is driving, fun, and perfect. I saw them in the 90s with CJ and it was too fast and chaotic. This is fast, but together. Also, one of my favorite live albums of all time.

Sad. And strange to think they are all gone.

Recently acquired. I bought this at a flea market in my neighborhood for $2. He had a table with wooden bins, well marked prices and everything was in plastic sleeves. Even the $2 bin. Class act. This is a late BÖC album, but it’s solid. Sinister riffs, theatrical arrangements, and the odd pop hook as a payoff. Less cheesy than some of their heavily 80s offerings like Club Ninja… (which I love) and more dramatic and dastardly like The Red And The Black (which I love). I still haven’t seen these guys, after a few botched attempts from Milwaukee to Jones Beach. One day…

Recently enjoyed. I picked this up at Resale Records in Madison, Wi. for $3.25 shortly after Portastatic covered St. Elmo’s Fire. (1995). Pretty sweet deal for an Eno album. I was reminded to pull this one out again after a reference to the John Parr song of the same name on the wonderful TV show, Raising Hope. Great show, but I had to cleanse my palette from the John Parr version.

Recently acquired. Finally picked this up at my local, Music Matters for the going rate of $20. Bob does it again. Almost as good as Silver Age, which was awesome. The single has the typical bubblegum greatness ant the rest of the album is populated with all the other great moods found on every Bob album from the Hüskers to Sugar. I feel so blessed to live in world where I can drop the needle on a track like Mister Grey that’s firey, passionate, tuneful, and exhibits the fine craftsmanship Bob has been honing since 1980! Bob forever.

Recently enjoyed. I finally found this about 6-7 years ago. I think it was in the Other Music dollar bin. That or Academy. Years after it first came out and I fell in love with the single, Live It Up. It’s got some other nice little songs on it too. A friend recently posted the video for Nips Are Getting Bigger. Now I need to get that album.

Recently acquired. $2 at 5th Avenue Records And Tapes. My local second hand vinyl store is closing. Maybe because they raised the price on their dollar bin to a two dollar bin. Wrong as that may be, I picked a few up, because I won’t be able to later. 

I’m really filling out my late Rod collection. This one has that cheesy Love Touch from the presumably awful movie, Legal Eagles. I admit, I like when Rod sings the line “I wanna be good for you, I didn’t me to be bad”. Rod had always delivered colloquialisms in song well. 

A lot of heavy hitters were involved in this album. Mike Chapman of ChinnChap cowrote Love Touch and Bob Ezrin produced the rest. There are a couple good songs on here and Rod can always sing great. He does a dramatic rendition of In My Life with strings. The arrangement is a little heavy handed, but a great song done by a great singer.
