    Those of you who follow the "Weakest Link" thread will find this amusing- yesterday I found and purchased a near-mint (sleeve and record) condition vinyl copy of this one in a thrift store for $1.29:

    I don't know the reference but I do know that's a great deal! 
    With your knowledge of music, I think you'd have fun getting in of the "Weakest Link" threads.  Somehow I thought you already were.  It's fun!
    I should check that out. I worry I don't spend enough time in this site!

    I did get this the other day for a buck!!  Mint condition on the media,  good on the cover,  but who cares..

    Nice!  Some great stuff there- right up there with Scarecrow.

    Yes, that's the classic for sure.  This one is good, particularly side A.

    I also recently found what I thought looked like a throw-away but it was cheap.  But a few seconds into the first cut and I'm there and a little further along, it's a keeper.  This EP has some songs that don't work as well and I've read that they have even better stuff, but three songs here are killer- "The Price of Sex", "Always Comes Back", and "Down at the Beach".  How did I miss these guys?.  Jack Cassidy was in this band!  Sadly, the guitarist singer Brian Marnell died clear back in 1983. 

    Better found late than never-  the best songs here are so cool!

    It was everywhere.  I managed to miss Bon Jovi but Huey Lewis, being a California guy, was virtually inescapable.

    But despite there being millions of copies of that album out there, finding it or anything like it for so cheap is a pretty good score.  I'll listen to some of it simply because I've never heard it on a good system and then put in in my record inventory at the store.  I get 60% of what I sell there, so if I put it out at $4 I'll make $2.40 minus the $1.29 which comes to $1.11 minus the cost of an outer mylar sleeve which I put on all records and- holy shit!-  I'll make about 80 cents on that sucker.  No wonder I'm getting nowhere fast.  :lol:

    I'd buy a nice copy of that for 8 bucks or less in a second.  The songs remind me of growing up.

    Maybe so, but it never did anything for me.

    You need to take a visit to the 'Weakest Link' threads. As much of a music connoisseur as you are.. you'd have fun.

    I pre-ordered it but nothing shown up yet and no word about shipping.  I hope it shows up!

    Has anyone picked up any of the Danzig or Samhain reprints?

    I'm wondering how they sound?

    I'm a sucker for color vinyl and anything released by Petty.
    Just played mine. Sounds really good except LP4, might need to clean it, had some distortion.
    Finally got around to playing the whole boxset.  Awesome sounding!  Great selection of tunes!

    Super stoked to get this one in the mail yesterday.  SVT, No Regrets

    And how cool to find some live footage from 1979 from a band that lasted such a short while (sadly, singer/guitarist Brian Marnell died way too young):

    Heroes is one of my all-time favorite Bowie albums.  As with Low, I love the duality of the song side/ instrumental side.  Add Brian Eno and Robert Fripps outstanding contributions and the result is one of Bowie's finest!
