In any format.

Last night I ordered a CD through Barnes and Noble online:

The last thing I bought was Journey's Greatest Hits (1 of the 15 or so greatest hits albums they've got), and Stone in Love.  That was about 3 weeks ago though.

At about 2:30 in the morning I decided to treat myself to some new music, so I ordered 3 CDs from Walmart. They should be at my house anywhere from 5 to 10 days.
I ordered a new portable CD player a few hours before that as well. It should arrive at my house in the same amount of time.

The CDs are:

Floating by Eloy

I've never heard anything by Eloy, but they looked really good and I've been wanting to try some new things too.

Agents of Fortune by Blue Oyster Cult

I love Blue Oyster Cult! This will be my 3rd album by them.

Freak Out! by Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention

I've never heard anything by them, but they look really good, they seem pretty weird (always a bonus!), and I've had several people that know me really well recommend them to me.

Over the past few weeks I've been buying some cheap CD's I've come across in thrift stores.  Some I'm sort of familiar with or know what I'm getting in to and the rest are on impulse and the results vary.  All of these were from $0.50 to $1.50:

I ordered yet another CD through Walmart.com:

Dare to Be Stupid by Weird Al Yankovic

I've heard only a little of Weird Al, but I like what I have heard enough to order a CD! I also saw his movie (UHF) which also increased my desire to get a CD.

I ordered yet another CD, this time through Best Buy online:

Who's Next by The Who

I already have two CDs by The Who (Endless Wire and Tommy) and they are both really good, but I wanted to hear more.

(http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/7307/thewhowhosnext.jpg) (http://img85.imageshack.us/i/thewhowhosnext.jpg/)

Decent album overall, but I'm a bit biased as I have all his albums, cheesy compilations included.  One suggestion: if you can find it, grab The Essential Weird Al Yankovic.  It's relatively cheap, coming in around $15 (various stores have it cheaper), and it's a 2 disc compilation of a cross of his best known parodies: "Eat It", "Smells Like Nirvana", "Lasagna", "White and Nerdy", as well as some of his best known Non-Parodies: "You Don't Love Me Anymore", "Dare to Be Stupid", "Pancreas", and "Bob."

Thanks for the information! I've heard about The Essential Weird Yankovic and it looks really nice, but when I first buy an artist's CDs I like to start with non-compilation albums. Still I've heard it has some new stuff so I'll look it into it.

The second disc has stuff from his '99, '03 and '06 releases.  As much as I like Al's work, I generally suggest a compilation to people, as most people aren't 'hardcore' fans of him like myself and a few others, and they can only take so much of his output.  The compilation's have the best-written stuff, as some cd's have a few songs that are not-so-good.

HappyGilmore -

I won't say that I will definitely become a hardcore fan, but I have a very broad range of comedic tastes ranging from very clever and witty to very corny and stupid, so I feel confident I'll be more into him than most people.

I also feel admiration for Weird Al as it's pretty cool how he managed to make a living!

Again, thanks for the information!

Something for Everybody by Devo.  New album, came out last week.  A really good output, really.  Most people chuckle, as it's "Devo."

Raw Power by Iggy and The Stooges.

Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd- based somewhat due to a suggestion from AHD.  Good album. :wink:

Raw Power by Iggy and The Stooges.  Again, seen AHD mention it and suggest it, and being familiar with Iggy's solo stuff, decided to grab it.

No, but I've also been ordering from different sites. Mostly Amazon, but Dokken and Quiet Riot are coming from Deep Discount (My first order from there). However, everything else I've bought in person from stores nearby. Mostly thrift stores, which is the only reason I can afford all this. Also, cassettes are always cheaper in thrift stores.

Raging Slab (1989)
Great debut album of southern infused hard rock, very fresh sound and now one of my fave all-time albums. "Get Off My Jollies" is kick ass along with mellow stand-out "Love Comes Loose". The picture is from the Rock Candy re-issue this year, as the band hated the original cover shot.  :thumbup:

Sex Pistols - EXTENDED VERSIONS

Once this binge is over I will have to stop for a while, before my wife staples my nuts to my forehead. ("You ordered MORE #$%&ing CDs?")

I'm still waiting for the new Overkill record to arrive.  :bluesad:

I got lucky, my local "cool" independent record store had it out on the shelves a couple of days before the official "street" date so I snapped it up. I love when shops do that. :teddyr:

Anyway, it's a bad-ass record and I think you'll dig it when you hear it!!

The local public library was having their annual Book Sale today so in addition to some cool geeky stuff like Star Wars and Aliens Vs. Predator paperback novels and a bad-ass "Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man" reprint compendium (the first 31 issues all in one book!), I scored a couple of CDs as well:

Heart - DOG & BUTTERFLY (1978, remaster w/bonus tracks)
Heart - JUPITER'S DARLING (2004)
Emerson, Lake & Palmer - THE BEST OF ELP (never been much of a prog-rock fan, but the last track is Greg Lake's solo Christmas single "I Believe In Father Christmas" and I love listening to that one at holiday time...)

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/3e/Queensryche_with_Geoff_Tate_-_Frequency_Unknown.jpg)

For the unaware, this technically isn't a "Queensryche" album... this is their lead singer Geoff Tate, who was fired earlier this year, and a gang of hired guns he put together to crank out a quick record using the Queensryche name before he and the rest of the band go to court to decide who owns the rights to it later this year.

The "other" Queensryche, with new lead singer Todd LaTorre, will release their album late next month... then things should get very interesting, very quickly...  :question:

Not my usual meat, but it was only a buck in the thrift store, and it features their post-backlash anthem "Not Ready To Make Nice," which is such a great F-you song.

A few more recent pickups:

Dead On Arrival - Alive and Kickin' (1995) This was just too weird to pass up, it's an independent release by a New York area hard rock band. It sounds pretty much like I expected - a low budget recording of some local yokels copying KISS, Priest and Motley Crue. Song titles include "Hot Babes" (yes, really!), "The Girl Next Door," "Honey Dipper" and "Hot Blooded/Cold Hearted." This would've been hopelessly out of date in 1985, never mind 1995.

Bad Company - 10 From 6 - greatest hits compilation from the classic rock band

Krokus - Extended Versions - Yet another entry in the never-ending budget price line of concert discs, this time by the Swiss hard rock/metal band. Sounds like they're aging well.

Today I got to do something that I haven't done in a couple of years (yes, I said YEARS!)... visit a real, live, honest to frickin-Gawd RECORD STORE (remember those?)!!

... I had to visit my company's main office for my annual review today. I don't get out that way very often anymore so when I passed a hole-in-the-wall mom & pop record shop (which I last visited in probably 2012 or so) naturally I had to stop in for a peek... and I am glad I did.  A few minutes of scrounging and I came up with these:

Tora Tora - Surprise Attack
Helloween - I Want Out! Live (I haven't seen this on CD in... well, ever!)
Whitesnake - Good To Be Bad

I've purchased a crap-ton of CDs recently. Off the top of my head:

Godflesh - A World Lit Only By Fire

As a Godflesh fan from years back I felt that what I'd heard from A World....was kinda sad for me. There's nothing better than an older band coming back out there and showing the young'uns how it's done. Unfortunately from what I've heard of this one was pretty mediocre and tired. I think a big problem is Justin's newfound infatuation with an 8-string guitar which is somewhat pointless and unnecessary. Godflesh for me were THE ultimate marriage of metal metting industrial (f**k Ministry, Fear Factory(POSERS!) and the like). They were the first and the best at what they did. Everybody points to Streetcleaner as their defining moment but it was the Pure album which did it for me. I loved how they started to incorporate melodic elements and clean vocals into the mix. Speaking of mix - the production on that album was fantastic given the fact that it was recorded on an 8 track cassette machine. The Selfless abum - while still fairly good - was an all digital recording and it's the reason why I say I don't prefer digital recording these days. Nowadays I'd rather listen to Jesu rather than pulling out their early classics so I have absolutely no idea what I'm ranting on about. Sorry about the little tirade DWV. The namedrop just sparked something I guess.

Cannibal Corpse - Butchered at Birth

As of a few days ago:

Death - Leprosy

Fantastic album. Raw, eerie and downright evil sounding at times. Definitely an old school death metal classic.

(http://www.metalinjection.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Death-Leprosy.jpg)


Death - Human

Arguably their finest hour. Every song is diabolically catchy and well crafted.

(http://www.metal-archives.com/images/6/0/6/606.jpg?0305)

Six Feet Under - Crypt of the Devil

Definitely a better release than Warpath, True Carnage, Bringer of Blood, Commandement and the Graveyard Classics but not as awesome as Undead, Haunted and Death Rituals. As good as it is, Crypt of the Devil should've been an EP because the first three songs (Gruesome, Open Coffin Orgy, Broken Bottle Rape) and Lost Remains are without question the strongest on the CD.

I drove home from work in a gully-washer of a thunder and lightning storm tonight. It was raining so hard that it was tough to see where I was going, so I decided to pull off the road and root around the Goodwill Store for a while in the hopes that it would give the storm time to blow over. CD pickin's there have been slim the past few times I'd visited but I scored some goodies this time out...

U2 - War (West German green/purple "Target" disc-print version)

Yep, I placed my last order with GoHastings about a week before the closings were made official. I received the last CD from that batch in the mail on Wednesday, July 20th - and they announced their liquidation the very next day, on Thursday the 21st. Timing is everything :D

Well, I've bought a few CDs from Hastings.

Pulp Fiction soundtrack (had the cassette, but hadn't ever had a chance to get the CD)

Goldfinger-Stomping Ground bought it for their cover of "99 Red Balloons" (which is, IMHO, is REALLY good), that's really only thing I knew from the band, but it had a few other cool songs too.

From Zero-One Nation Under - I really know nothing about this band, I bought the CD because the cover caught my attention and it was less than two dollars after a discount.  So, I figured what the heck.  

After Dark: The Alternative Gothic Rock Collection - Again, of the 14 or so bands on this CD, I've only actually heard of about three of them.  Haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but I figured, again, at less than $2 I'm sure I'll find at least one song I like.  

For the curious, the CD has groups like The Jesus and Mary Chain (heard of, but don't think I've ever heard of their tracks), The Cure, Nightwish, etc.

Perris Records (an '80s style hard rock/metal web store) is having a clearance sale so I wandered over there, took a peek and gambled on a handful of ultra cheap unknowns, which arrived today...

Crawler - Knight of the Word

Hammered - The Beginning

Rising Dust - Taste of Fire

Icy Steel - Kronothor

Crawler was $1.95, the others were 99 cents apiece, I figured that was cheap enuff to risk on some unfamiliar names. Rising Dust are French stoner rockers (the cover of Motörhead's "Iron Horse/Born to Lose" sold me) and the rest appear to be Italian power/trad metal bands. Perris threw in a couple of their trademark freebie sampler CDs as well. Neat-O.

Powerman 5000 - Tonight the Stars Revolt!

You know, I love the song, "When World's Collide" but whenever the chorus comes on, I can't help but sing it as, "I need to clear my throat!  I'm need to clear my throat! I'm need to clear my throat! Baby, baby!"

While visiting my Mom yesterday, my brother took me a few towns over to a cool "pop culture junk shop" (comics, used CDs/vinyl, video games, action figures, etc.) he's been meaning to show me for a while - cool little hole in the wall place with a lot of neat stuff, but everything is so haphazard (boxes upon boxes of stuff piled everywhere) that it would've taken me all day to do a halfway decent scrounge... there were a few racks of CDs I couldn't even get to cuz there was so much crap in the way. Still managed to come away with these for five bucks a pop:

Guns N Roses - GnR Lies and Use Your Illusion I
Deep Purple - Slaves and Masters
Sebastian Bach - Kicking and Screaming (w/bonus DVD)
Cheap Trick - Heaven Tonight
Ramones - All The Stuff (And More) Vol. 2

...plus, my 9 year old scored three Green Day CDs. That's my boy!

2 more Goodwill scores today:

Blondie - The Best of Blondie
(I've wanted this one for awhile...but till now, every one I've come across in the thrifts turned out to be an empty CD case, a wrong disc in the case, or a beat up, scratched-to-hell copy. Victory at last! Haha.)

Ted Nugent - Weekend Warriors
