Nothing yet for me, I did get some nice records for Christmas and bought a CD right before New Year's. I'm sure that will change soon enough! :)

I'd say so, I'll be including any catalog titles or reissues that I buy (including vintage vinyl)

Black Sabbath - Master of Reality (one of the newer 180g reissues, if it sounds good I'll pick up more of these as my original Sabbath albums are a bit noisy for my taste, I've owned them for over 30 years now!)

Blue Oyster Cult - Fire of Unknown Origin (on blue vinyl)

I'll give music lovers a little tip if they have wide-ranging interests and still use CDs. This is a golden age of picking up cheap CD lots on eBay if you aren't picky about condition. 2018 seems to be the year when many Gen Xers finally capitulated and began dumping their CD collections for pennies on the dollar.

I plan on participating fully, but I just wanted to say, it's so good to see people who buy music rather than rent it.

Last year I discovered Mastodon and fell hard for them (I know, I'm really late to the party at this point!) and am filling in my collection, I just picked up Crack the Skye on vinyl and Cold Dark Place EP on CD (only vinyl choice for that one was a picture disc that's four times the price, no thanks).

KISS - Hotter than Hell

Man, these KISS vinyl reissues are great: nice, quiet, flat 180g vinyl. HTH is a particularly problematic recording, I've owned this album in a myriad of formats since I was 10 years old and I swear this is the best this album has ever sounded IMO (still kind of murky and sludgy, but I'm hearing some more definition in this release). This album is my favorite of the first three KISS albums.

I just picked up Al Kooper's Rare & Well Done set, which had been out of print for many years until recently. It mixes unissued and rare songs with his greatest hits.

Black Sabbath - Sabotage on 180 gram vinyl. Sabbath always sounded too thin to me on CD and I was never happy with those releases (on the Warner Bros. CDs at least), but they sound nice thick, chunky and heavy on vinyl.

Over the weekend I stopped at Standards: A Record Store in north county San Diego. It's kinda out of my way so I don't get there too often. But if you're ever in the area, I suggest a visit. It's well worth it. While there, the guys behind the counter were having a conversation where they ridiculed the "Paisley Underground" sound of Los Angeles in the 80s (The Three O'Clock, et al). I was gonna pipe up, as I'm a fan of several bands from that scene, until one of the guys started mocking them with a made-up song, and I had to admit the made-up lyrics really did sound like they could come from one of those bands so I just stayed silent. Anyway, I got these titles:

https://cimg3.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...1f758f5d66.jpg
https://cimg8.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...130dd81cc8.jpg
https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...2328c15aab.jpg

Last one is a bargain-bin gamble on an 80s Power Pop band (although it does feature Thomas Newman, Randy's brother, who's now a film composer). That's been a hit-or-miss strategy for me. I hit on a little gem of a band last year called Four out of Five Doctors (whose biggest claim to fame was appearing in the 80's slasher House on Sorority Road), missed on another band who I can't even remember their name, but the whole album was about high school girls, getting them to sneak out of their houses, etc, but the guys in the band were long past high school age. I mean, I know it was an attempt to sound "hip" to their intended audience, but now it comes off as just creepy as all hell.

This made me take a look, and yeah, gotta pull the trigger on that! I'm already ordering the breakout vinyls from Loving the Alien so it'll be a nice Bowie delivery early next week.

Cool. That reminds me that I need to dig up my vinyl of Whitesnake's S/T that I bought new in 1987, clean it and slap it on the turntable. That was a good album. :up:

I make bargain bin gambles all the time. The amount of random stuff that's out there it's virtually impossible to track. These guys were one and done I think - only song I've heard is Hold My Hand which isn't half bad. I don't think I've ever seen this album in the wild though.

I went to a couple of actual B&M stores yesterday and picked up the recent double album release of GNR's Appetite for Destruction and Slayer's Reign in Blood on vinyl. Both sound great!

Re: Albums Bought (2019)
 
Picked up Dylan and the Dead vinyl a couple of days ago, and have the new Mandolin Orange vinyl on the way. Also grabbed a bunch of old Irish Trad on vinyl (Bothy Band, Planxty, Boys of the Lough, De Danann, Kevin Burke, and a couple of others).

Finally, I’ve got the first 8 volumes of the 7” Grateful Dead series on the way, and have subscribed to get volumes 9-12 throughout the year.

I might need a Grateful Dead vinyl intervention at the rate I’m going. Hopefully I’ll be able to snag the Cornell set before the intervention happens. ��
