Thomas Dolby – The Golden Age of Wireless

Came upon this CD in a local thrift awhile back. Immediately noticed it was an early West German pressing and that it was in terrific condition. Autobuy! And of course, the price was right, as it always is in the thrift shops. I’m not terribly familiar with Thomas Dolby, apart from “She Blinded Me With […]

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

Wow…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 […]

Further frustration at the thrifts

It does appear that spring is here. People are cleaning out their attics and more stuff is finding its way to the thrifts. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean I’ve found anything good! A few really close calls though. The most frustrating one was yesterday, hit a thrift store around the corner from me and saw that […]

The latest batch of records (and they smell good too!)

Came home with some pretty decent stuff from the Goodwill yesterday. It was exciting just because I haven’t had any luck in a while, so I was happy to find anything that looked remotely interesting. My cat likes them too, she was smelling them all afternoon. I’m gonna take that as a good sign and […]

Retrospective – The Best of Buffalo Springfield

Buffalo Springfield is one of those bands that was off my radar screen for way too long…a good friend of mine is a big fan of theirs, and after reconnecting with him recently and talking music, I got excited to check out some of their stuff. Of course I’ve been aware of them forever, and […]

Sixties Hits, brought to you by WRKO Boston

I came upon this one in a Goodwill awhile back. Honestly what first struck me was the WRKO in the title. I grew up in the Boston area and remember my parents listening to ‘RKO a whole lot. Back then they were mostly a music station, but after 1981 they switched to all talk. Here’s […]

Joan Armatrading – Show Some Emotion

I’ve been vaguely familiar with Joan Armatrading for years– in fact, she was one of those artists who I had been hearing on the radio since I was a kid, but I never knew it was her. Songs like “Drop the Pilot” and “(I Love it When You) Call Me Names” popped up pretty frequently. […]

Yesterday’s Finds (Zeppelin, Beatles, Goodman, Winding & Koto Music)

Found some pretty cool stuff yesterday. This is actually the first time I’ve come across a Led Zeppelin record or a Beatles record at a thrift store…they don’t pop up too often. As it happened, they also had two copies of Let It Be, but both of them were trashed. This copy of Abbey Road […]

Genesis – Three Sides Live

Okay, this is cheating a little bit, since I didn’t actually find this Genesis record at a thrift store, but it sure was cheap. This album was not new to me, I’ve been a fan of it for years. I stupidly sold my vinyl copy years ago and got the CD remaster. Kind of a […]
