LP Lust: December 15 & 20

I've been up to my newish old tricks, friends. In between all that serious brow-furrowing whilst contemplating my list of the top albums (and other things) of this year that we've almost finished with, I made not one but two shopping trips this week that resulted in, surprisingly, more records. I know, you're stunned.

Now, this all makes perfect sense, especially when you consider the fact that I'm moving at the beginning of February. I mean, carrying lots and lots of records up many stairs to a third floor apartment makes complete sense, right?

Insanity aside, I've been really having a good time over the course of my newly-vigorous record collecting. After a while, I have started to notice patterns emerging. One of the most amusing is that no matter the store, there is always (yes, always) at least one Bread LP. A lot of Herb Alpert, too. It's the darndest thing. There's almost always a bevy of Fleetwood Mac. And then, friends, there's a lot of good stuff.

Here's my latest batch of good stuff:

*Bob Booker & Earle Doud Present the First Family

*Marianne Faithfull - Broken English

*Rod Stewart - Absolutely Live

*Rod Stewart - Never a Dull Moment

*Rod Stewart - Every Picture Tells a Story

*The Association - Greatest Hits!

*Henry Mancini - The Music from Peter Gunn

*Various - Modern French Music

*The Charlie Daniels Band - Million Mile Reflections

I guess it was my time to continue stocking up on post-Faces Mr. Stewart. But I'll stand by my convictions here, friends. Old Rod is good Rod. You can take that to the bank.
