Yesterday was a day that I absolutely was in need of. The BCPF and I had a “board meeting” which is where we catch up from the week (or more) of seeing each other for about a total of 5 hours. Then, we went to Underdog Records and got some “candy.” We had brunch at Mozelle’s. We went to a local boutique and then to a local coffee shop for her to get some whole beans. Here’s the candy part:
Prince – Welcome 2 America — Gatefold Sleeve with foil-embossed title. This release is black vinyl. Hype Sticker On Shrink: Previously unreleased album from Prince’s legendary vault, featuring 12 studio recordings on 2LPs with etched 4th side. (Love Symbol). Special Welcome 2 America Vinyl Etching on Side D of Double LP (featuring Prince image as in the gatefold): “Welcome 2 America, Welcome 2 The Big Show”, “Everybody’s Lookin’ 4 Something When There Ain’t No Place 2 Go”, “Trans4mation Happens Xcept Inside America That’s The Only Place 👁 [Eye Symbol] Know”, “Deep Within: Yes or No?” New.
Electronic – Electronic — Johnny Marr from The Smiths and Bernard Sumner of Joy Division/New Order from 1991. Reissue, Remastered, Repress. Of course, this was something The BCPF wanted and well, who can tell her no? Not me! New!.
The Rolling Stones – Black And Blue — Jonathan had gotten a few used Rolling Stone albums in and they were in fantastic shape. I had these three but all of them in my collection were anywhere from G to VG. These are all in EX shape. I will forego the any descriptions.
It was a great day. Just so you know, Jonathan is requiring masks to enter the store for right now, no matter your vax status. You can be an arse and complain and boycott and all that stuff, or you can do what is right for him and respect his wishes. Your freedom isn’t infringed upon if you don’t want to wear your mask. You are absolutely free to not go and he’s free to require them. None of us want to wear them, but we are wanting to do what we need to. Use Discogs, too.
Until tomorrow, keep spinnin’…
