Live in Chicago

I am going to see Guns N Roses for the first time in two weeks. Despite listening to this band for over 27 years, I never wanted to see that badly as now, with the nearly original line up.

To celebrate that and to get into the groove, I decided to pick up this semi-legal live LP from the pharmacist. (The eighties are back) Nice selection of tracks recorded in Chicago back in 1992 and great sound quality. But horrible artwork. The back is even worse and screams bootleg.

Straight Outta Compton

To keep it hip hop, I also picked up a west coast classic in the sale on Saturday. I never got this record on vinyl, since it was too expensive. But the cd played over time here and when I found a cheap copy, I had to get it anyway.

No sleep

I picked up a few records on Dutch equivalent of Craig’s List last week. One of them is this Beastie Boys 12″. Sleeve has some wear and tear but the vinyl looks near mint. Love these cheap finds.

Miranda’s 

A true 1983 local punk classic. This is their second and last record. It is in near mint condition, it has the insert and a copy of a news clipping, don’t know why that last one was included, I don’t see the correlation but it is a funny clipping.

Not very expensive or that hard to find this single. But if you want to go real cheap, there is a very low cost compilation from a few backs available combining both 7″s and a few live and rehearsal tracks.

Test presses

I scored two great test presses last week. First is the debut LP by the Dutch punk band NRA. No special sleeve or anything.

Also I got the test press of the debut EP by Mission Of Burma. Some great songs are on this 12″. This is the test press of the reissue.

Bloody

Just when I thought I am done with Black Sabbath records, I come across an opportunity I can’t decline. This is the last one, that fills the gap in my early Sabbath collection.

Powerage

Last saturday at a bonafide record fair, I picked up an ACDC record that was missing from my collection. I assumed I already had it, but a few weeks ago, I noticed it wasn’t there, so I placed it high on the list to get a copy. And so I did.

UDS

This 12″ single is hard to find, it came out in 1999 and currently one seller has a copy for sale on Discogs. Luckily not many people are after this one, since it are only remixes, so the price is low. I was super stoked a found a copy local and I didn’t have to spend additional cash on shipping costs. The 12″ itself is near mint and probably unplayed.

Tougher than the rest

I was stoked finding this one, the b-sides are so good on this single. Some killer live tracks.

C.R.E.A.M.

I got a nice gift of a good friend of mine. Perfect record for a nice and quiet day, like today.
