|My vinyls and some antique buys|
And lucky I was. I wasn't really looking for anything in particular (though I've been searching for David Bowie's Hunky Dory for a while now)so I kind of just perused the various bins until and picked up anything that looked interesting. I ended up leaving with five albums for under $20. Pretty impressive, huh?
Fleetwood Mac: Rumours
Okay, so I'm definitely a music enthusiast, but I've never really given Fleetwood Mac a listen until buying this album. I know, it's literally a sin! Stevie Nicks is a goddess and all but somehow I never ended up listening to Fleetwood Mac. Well, Rumours, their most well-known album, definitely converted me into a hard core Fleetwood Mac fan. The ethereal voice of Stevie Nicks just transports you to a world of sprawling green plains and all your worries just disappear. This album is the perfect 1970s rock confection and I'm so glad I bought it.
John Lennon and Yoko Ono: Double Fantasy
Simon and Garfunkel: Bridge Over Troubled Water
Soundtrack to "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"
If you haven't watched this movie, please go and do so right now. It's amazing! Anyways, the soundtrack to the film is just as good and for only 25 cents, I had to pick it up. It's not really the kind of album I'd listen to a lot, simply because I'm not a huge soundtrack listener, but I had to have it.
Soundtrack to "Mame"
Mame is my all-time favorite musical, yet almost no one knows what it is. I stumbled upon it while searching for music for an ice skating routine (yes I was once a figure skater) and ended up watching the whole Lucille Ball movie on Youtube. The songs are equally charming as its lead character, Auntie Mame. As far as musicals go, I think it's a total gem, so I'm super excited to own the Angela Lansbury (original Broadway) record.
That's just a quick snapshot of my most recent record haul. I love vinyl records and it's great that they're going through a renaissance right now! It's definitely a good way to resurrect some of the best old music!
