Yesterday was a routine Saturday for The BCPF and me. Breakfast, wine, records. That was it. Here’s the haul:
Pink Floyd – A Momentary Lapse Of Reason (Remixed & Updated) — 2×LP, 45 RPM. Gatefold sleeve + 24-page booklet. Remixed in 2019 from the original master tapes on Heavyweight 180g pressing. I had this on Cassette and can’t remember if I have it on CD or not. I think it was hard to find. I’m not huge on live albums, but this was a great show. New.
Various – I’ll Be Your Mirror (A Tribute To The Velvet Underground & Nico) — I’ve always said about Velvet Underground, I can handle the songwriting and structure, I just wish someone else would be singing the songs. I got my wish. 2×LP, Compilation. Michael Stipe, St Vincent, Thurston Moore, Andrew Bird, etc. New.
Grim Reaper – See You In Hell — A name I know from the 80s NWBHM days. This was the band’s debut album. I know Nick Bowcott from being a contributor for Guitar for the Practicing Musician when that was in publication and I was still reading it (I loved that magazine). I haven’t really ever heard it before, though. At least, as far as I know. It was there in EX condition, so I had to jump on it.
System Of A Down – Mezmerize — SOAD is always hit or miss with me, it’s a little aggressive, but when it’s melodic, it’s certainly melodic. This album, I love because of three songs specifically: BYOB (which stands for Bring Your Own Bomb), Audio/Video, and Cigaro. It was there brand new so I hit it. New.
Archers Of Loaf – All The Nations Airports — The BCPF’s album. She loves everything this band puts out. Any guesses as to what record label this is on? Yes, Merge. We know how she feels about that. New.,
The Magnetic Fields – Love At The Bottom Of The Sea — Another Merge Records band and another band that The BCPF loves. I am not a huge fan of this one. She is and that’s how it goes in this house. New.
Händel – English Baroque Soloists, John Eliot Gardiner – Water Music — Just like it says. EX.

“Can I make you an offer you can’t refuse? I kept my eyes on you, ’cause I tell you that you lose. And you can come with me to a place you’ll know so well. And I will take you to the very gates of Hell.” – “See You In Hell” (Bowcott/Grimmett)
