Salutations™!!

The BCPF and I started our Saturday a little different this week. We went to breakfast at Bib’s Downtown and had some delicious biscuits and gravy and a great BLT. Then, we went to Underdog Records and, came home to listen! Also, just throwing this out there… if you get a chance to go to Mojito Latin Soul Food, you will not be sorry! Here’s the haul:

Pink Floyd – Autumn Equinox (The Unreleased Pink Floyd London Collection) — Looking over the track listing, I’m not familiar with any of the song titles. But, I have really enjoyed these old Floyd imports. New. 2xLP, Compilation, Unofficial Release.

Pink Floyd – Broadcast in Rome, Italy May 6th, 1968 — Limited Edition, Unofficial Release, Yellow Vinyl. Just four tunes with a Roger Waters interview. New.

Pink Floyd – Old Prospectives — Limited Edition, Unofficial Release, Transparant light blue. More unreleased tunes from Floyd. New.

Pink Floyd – Secret Times — Compilation, Unofficial Release. Same. New.

Buckingham Nicks – Buckingham Nicks — The official release of this album was on Polydor but this is on Anthem. There is an Anthem records that is also distributed by Polydor. It started so Rush could have their own label. Queensrÿche’s Q2K was on that label, as well. I can’t find evidence that supports or denies that this is the same Anthem label. New.

My Bloody Valentine – Loveless — The second album from the Irish band, My Bloody Valentine. This is an import of that. I don’t know anything about the band, but I believe The BCPF does. New.

Radiohead – Other Colors — Live BBC recordings. Unofficial. Black vinyl, and plain white inner sleeve.

The Smiths – The Pablo Cuckoo Tape — Unofficial Release, Red Vinyl. New.

The Smiths – The Old Guard BBC Sessions — 2xLP, Compilation, Reissue, Unofficial Release. This was originally a Vol 1/Vol 2 kind of thing. They combined them, and I mean really combined. LP 1 is pink. LP 2 is transparent orange.

That’s all of the imports. Here’s what else we got.

Andrew Bird – Noble Beast — Bird’s 2009 release. We saw him open for Belle and Sebastian a few years back. The BCPF snuck this one in on me. New.

Man Or Astro-Man? – Experiment Zero — I personally know very little about Man or Astro-Man? The BCPF, however, is very familiar and this was an exciting find for her. It’s from 1996, so definitely a college memory thing. New.

We went kind of crazy on the imports. I have to slow down on those. Jonathan and I are talking about a new venture but I can only tease you with that at this point. Underdog Records is open Thursday-Saturday from 11a to 7p. Jonathan does make store-to-porch deliveries Monday-Wednesday. Of course, Underdog Records is the Official Music Sponsor of The Less Desirables. Also, I use Discogs to track my collection.

Until tomorrow, keep spinnin’…
Scorp out!
