LP Lust: Welcome Home Edition

Restraint. It's an interesting word, isn't it? Some synonyms for restraint include supression and confinement, neither of those being words I am particularly fond of. Especially when applied to my record-buying habits.

Some people have drugs, I have vinyl.

I also have a clear lack of restraint when it comes to supressing my urge to add to my collection. So, in honor of my return to Richmond from SXSW, I decided to loosen the (already lax) reigns on my spending and procure a multitude of albums from a couple of my favorite suppliers. Just as a welcome home to myself.

Here's what happened the first time:

*Iron Butterfly - In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

*Donovan - Donovan

*Tony Cole - If the Music Stops

*Rod Stewart - Gasoline Alley

*Orpheus - Joyful

*The Ray Charles Singers - Slices of Life

*Big Ben Banjo Band - Happy Banjos Play the Beatles

*Herman's Hermits - Herman's Hermits

*Grace Jones - Warm Leatherette

*Donovan - Slow Down World

*Robert Palmer - Secrets

*Electric Light Orchestra - El Dorada: A Symphony by the Electric Light Orchestra

*David Frye - I Am the President

And here's what happened the second time:

*Orchestral Manouevres in the Dark - Architecture & Morality

*U2 - The Unforgettable Fire

*George Jones - I Am What I Am

*Chris Isaak - Silvertone

*Glen Campbell - Burning Bridges

*Charley Pride - Sweet Country

*Various - Great Country & Western Stars

As you can see, both trips were very fruitful...
