The BCPF and I did a lot of nothing yesterday. Records, lunch at The Porch, record listening, dinner at A Slice of Napoli. The big news is we have a new President-Elect. Here’s the haul:
Danzig – Soul On Fire: Live At The Hollywood Palace, 1989 FM Broadcast — My Kousins talk a lot about Danzig, but I have a limited knowledge of them. This is an import. 2×LP, Limited Edition, Unofficial Release. Limited to 500 copies. New.
Danzig – Danzig III: How The Gods Kill — What I said in the entry above…? This is the first half of the two things I know about this band. The song “Dirty Black Summer” is something I know. A band I joined in 1992 did this song. It’s simple and sounds like a decent Doors cover. But, it’s on here. So, yay. New.
Joy Division – Live At The Paradiso Club Amsterdam, January 11, 1980 — Limited Edition, Unofficial Release. Manufactured in the EU. Limited to 500 copies. The BCPF is a fan of Joy Division but she says they were pretty horrible live. She turned down picking this up. I didn’t. Let’s see how horrible it can be. New.
Bon Iver – Bon Iver, Bon Iver — The BCPF has been putting off getting this album. When she did go to get it, Jonathan was sold out. It was there yesterday, so she picked it up. It’s good ethereal music but I can’t understand a single thing he’s saying. I can almost understand Sigor Rós more than him. With them, I have an excuse. They’re Icelandic. Bon Iver, more specifically, Justin Vernon is American; from Wisconsin. New.
Ralph Vaughan Williams – Sir Adrian Boult – Fantasia On ‘Greensleeves’ / English Folk Song Suite / Fantasia On A Theme By Thomas Tallis — I have no clue what this is. The BCPF put it in the crate. VG+.
We had fun and it seemed like there was a weight lifted from our shoulders. I’m not going to get into politics but the election went our way. Jonathan had a slew of new imports come in and I picked up a few. If you’re into oddball, weird things, check those out. The store is open Thursday-Saturday 11a-7p. He does store-to-porch deliveries Monday-Wednesday. You can purchase via the website 24/7. Use Discogs to track your collection.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“You cry out in your sleep, all my failings exposed. There’s a taste in my mouth as desperation takes hold. Just that something so good, just can’t function no more. Then love, love will tear us apart.” – “Love Will Tear Us Apart” (Sumner/Morris/Hook/Curtis)
