Signs of Spring: Fleetwood Mac, Jethro Tull, Steve Winwood, McCartney & Wings, etc…

Wings, Fleetwood Mac, Simon & Garfunkel, Steve Winwood, Kiss, Jethro TullWow…it’s been a while since I’ve posted here. It’s been a busy several weeks. I did, however, manage to get out to the thrifts a few times. Spring is definitely in full swing and it looks like folks are now starting to bring in their LPs by the boatload. Of course a large percentage of them are worth less than nothing, but there are a few gems.

Had this nice score at a thrift shop a few blocks away. It’s a small store, they don’t usually have too much, but that makes it easy to pick through. Actually, I had all but given up on this place– they’ve had pretty much the same records for the last 3 months or more. But on this particular visit I could immediately see that things had changed in the vinyl department: the presence of new LPs was obvious. And amidst some of the usual crap– Neil Diamond, Air Supply, etc., I did manage to find these:

  • Paul McCartney/WingsVenus and Mars
  • Paul McCartney/WingsBand on the Run
  • Fleetwood MacMystery to Me
  • Simon & Garfunkel’s Greatest Hits
  • Steve WinwoodChronicles
  • Kiss Dynasty
  • Jethro TullHeavy Horses

I actually can’t wait to check out that Kiss LP especially, because the curiosity is killing me. I own no Kiss records or CDs, but I did see them live some years back when they toured with Aerosmith.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to spinning all of these very soon! All of the records look VG+ to NM and I’m gonna call this one a “score” even though I haven’t listened to a single one yet.

The Verdict: SCORE!
My Cost: $3.50 (50ยข each)

    Well, unfortunately the Kiss LP doesn’t do much for me after all, but that’s OK…was fun to check out for 50 cents!

    Nice score for 50cents each. I found a clean copy of Venus & Mars a few years ago for $1. It was a thick gatefold with stuff inside (poster,etc.). And, I recently found clean copies of Band On The Run, Mystery To Me for 99 cents each… all thrift purchases of course.

      Thanks for your comment! Yeah, the Venus & Mars copy I have looks like an original too, with all the inserts, etc. Still haven’t gotten to these yet, I have a huge backlog of stuff to listen to…but hopefully soon!
