Other fine tune I've picked up recently.

- Blue Öyster Cult: s/t album [remaster]
- Blue Öyster Cult: Tyranny And Mutation [remaster]
- Cream: Fresh Cream [remaster]
- Bill Cobham: Spectrum
- King Crimson: Starless And Bible Black [40th Anniversary Edition CD/DVD]
- Kreator: Pleasure To Kill [remaster]
- Las Cruces: Ringmaster
- Klaus Schulze: Timewind [2-disc special edition/remaster]
- Whiplash: Insult To Injury

Have had Pleasure To Kill on CD for ages, but this remaster was only $6, so seemed worth it... As any Voivodfan knows, those old Noise CDs were not ideal.

The King Crimson reissue is amazing, as is that Klaus Schulze. Shit, was stoked as hell to find the Las Cruces, Whiplash and Billy Cobham discs as well.

Spectrum was the one with Tommy Bolin right...man, I love that guy's playing. They're reissuing some of his stuff...or putting out a new collection I believe.

Yeah, that's the one! The album absolutely shreds all around. Both Bolin and Cobham are at the top of their game here! Essential listening!

Have no clue how this was never in my collection, but it is now:
JUDAS PRIEST - Live in London

Mastodon/Flaming Lips - Spoonful Weighs a Ton (split pink vinyl 7" - Record Store Day release)

Mastodon/Fiest - Commotion/Black Tongue (7" Record Store Day Release - the bands covered each others songs)

Not sure how I really feel about RSD especially since I don't have any local stores to go to and it seems most of the product gets scarfed up by people just looking to put it on eBay for people like me who can't buy it in the store, and I'm sure there's a lot of store owners who get the product just to make a shit load more by holding on the side to put on eBay. The majority of the product specially released for this day just doesn't seem to get directly to the hands of the people who really want it for their collection.

Does anyone here get to go to RSD and actually purchase what they are looking for at the prices they are suppose to be sold at?

There are a million indie record stores here but I never make it to any on the day in question. I did however find a link to the Mastodon song, that will do I guess! It isn't illegal if it's sold-out and unavailable, right? here's what else I got this week:

Lard:
-The Power of Lard
-Pure Chewing Satisfaction
-70's Rock must Die

I have 'The last temptation of Reid' somewhere, but if I can't find it I'll just order a new one

One of the things I love about this thread is that it sometimes reminds me of cds I have that I've forgotten about about... Just pulled out my "Last temptation of Reid" which I haven't listened to in a long time... thanks.

Received yesterday:
Joe Satriani - Satchurated: Live in Montreal - blu ray
Joe Satriani - Satchurated: Live in Montreal double cd
Brad - United We Stand
Steven Wilson - catalog/preserve/amass live in europe october 2011 (record store day vinyl release

Same for me... I don't think I ever actually make it out on "record store day" but to hit the shops all the time anyway. Seattle does have tons of indie stores that participate, so sure we could take part if we made a point of it.

Went to a record show today, but it was a bust, so did some poking around in the city and came home with these CDs.

- Cluster: Cluster '71
- The Doors: Strange Days [40th Anniversary edition]
- Esoteric: Paragon Of Dissonance [DOOOOOOM!]
- Flower Travelin' Band: Anywhere
- Judas Priest: Rocka Rolla
- Manilla Road: The Deluge
- Swans: The Great Annihilator
- Uriah Heep: Look At Yourself [expanded deluxe edition, real nice!]

Haha, I have all those Lard discs except 70s Rock Must Die. The others are great, so should probably make a point to grab that one here sometime.

Oh cool, you found it, now if you could just return it that would be nice

I think Lard sounds better than the late 90's/early 2000's Ministry albums. Just a different singer, quirky as he may be, that's Jello for ya!

I ordered Black Sabbath FEATURING Tony Iommi (deluxe remastered edition) 'Seventh Star' from Amazon, should arrive tomorrow. I read Iommi's book recently and was funny to note that he assembled this band from Lita Ford's (of whom he was dating at the time) and they ended up breaking up because the band wanted to stay with him LOL.

LMFAO!!!!

The IOMMI book was great. Lots of great insight, and all of the DELUXE Sabbath discs are worth picking up. Plenty of great live, unreleased, and demos to make them worthwhile.

Speaking of books, I'm currently ready the unauthoized Judas Priest: Defenders of the Faith biography which is crammed with amazing info and tons of interviews from past members and quotes from current members made over the years. The author was trying to get the band to authorize this book but they put so many restrictions on what he could write, so he released it way... so much I never knew that the band kind of kept secret over the years.

Todays mail:
Pantera - Cowboys From Hell (3 disc set (remastered/live/demos) this is the one I should have purchased instead of the 2 disc set... oh well, got 'em both now

RUSH- ABC 1974: Angora Ballroom Cleveland Ohio 26 August 1974 (The First American Broadcast)

Just wanted to mention while I hated Cowboys from Hell....I just ran across Vulgar Display on youtube......, that thing kills! His guitar sound was way better...I even thought Phil sounded pretty cool. Great album.

Hmm, I might wanna check that out. Is it the same guy that did the Slayer book? He tried to get them to authorize it too but they wouldn't. I think it was Joel McIver.

Got my Sabbath 'Seventh Star', I don't know why I never really bothered (well yeah I do, I used to think it was "weak" because there are some ballads haha), but in my old age I have come to appreciate great singing and music, regardless if it's "gay" for something that is labeled as Black Sabbath

The author is indeed Joel McIver. I'm now reading his "Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica" book. This guy does a shit load of extensive research for all of his books and interviews tons of people who really help flesh out the story. I like these books better because they are unauthorized and don't get edited by the band so you only get to read the stuff they want you to know.

I was always a fan of the Seventh Star album even though I admit it didn't feel like a Sabbath album, and it was actually NEVER intended to be, it reminded me more of Rainbow or something more along those lines.

FALLING DOWN Compilations: I - II - IIV (which features an unreleased The Winchester Club recording... hopefully there will be a lot of good music on these 7 discs since I figured if The Winchester Club was associated with it, it's gotta be decent.)

I've never understood what is the Winchester Club? A bar that Harry hangs out at? A band where he does soft acoustic covers of holiday favorites? An album ? Somebody answer this mystery for me! Please...

An epic post-rock band of some Harry's friends, they invited Harry and Nell to complete the lineup. It's good, trust me, no holiday favorites or other cheese. Two great albums behind their backs.

THE WINCHESTER CLUB is great music. Totally different than the other bands H has been involved with... at least different than all the ones I have collected. I love the stuff they have created. Their my "go to" band when i want something trippy - ambient - heavy - groovy - mind numbing. It reminds me of things I have like Bass Communion, Robert Fripp's Soundscapes, Incredible Expanding Mindfuck, The Holy Body Tattoo (Blacky's project from the late 90's... which I need to spin real soon)

Listening to Falling Down IIV Compilation now. The Winchester Club track was cool of course (started with their track even though it was the last song on disc 1), and so far everything else is top quality stuff. So far I'm glad I forked over all the money to get these. Excellent collection.

Storm Corrosion - Storm Corrosion (vinyl - cd/blu ray - autographed poster) They sent me a download link the other day and I listened to it a couple times while I was driving & working today. Not sure what my opinion is about it, but I think it's one of those albums that you really need to sit down & pay attention to... like early prog, which is what it sounds exactly like. Definitely a combination of Opeth's Heritage album and Steven Wilson latest solo material rolled into one.

Not a CD, but a book: WORLDS AWAY.

Fantastic.

--------------------

"Forty-five moments of perfection translated through a cautionary escape into the perils of the mundane, the inherent entropy in ultimate order, and the potential threats of eternal, unchecked apathy in civilization; all cloaked in musical expression so thoughtful, creative and forward thinking that almost a quarter-century later, few can even comprehend it, much less match it."

Hey Dave, I hadn't really been paying attention to this one until I saw the video for Drag Ropes on Youtube a couple of weeks ago became kind of obsessed with it.
Drag Ropes

I've since heard the full album a few times and am finding a lot going on... way mellow, gentle, and dark as hell. A beautiful recording, I think. The CD/BluRay version will be mine, haha! I'll bet the 5.1 mix is insane.

This is pretty much what I have in mind. Did you see the huge gash (haha!) on Mikael's head? OUCH! Apparently hit his head on the tour bus and had to have his head stapled. Yeesh.

At first listen I didn't know what to think of this album, but then I got sucked in by the strange dark atmosphere. Now I love it. Just like I love 'Heritage'and 'Grace For Drowning'.

That gash on Mikael's head is fuckin' gnarly. I love his write up about it. He should open the concerts with a 30 minute stand up comedy routine. He is funny as hell.

I listened to the 5.1 blu ray mix the other day, and this is definitely the way to experience the album. It's something you have to absorb and let it absorb you, just like Sw's solo material and Opeth's Heritage (which are all amazing in 5.1).

I wasn't thrilled with the drag the ropes video. It reminded me of South Park meets Tim Burton. Just not my style of animation.

Not a cd, but I did complete my collection of the Yellow Submarine McFarlane figures. Being bored & lonely makes me go to Amazon & Ebay and buy things I've always wanted but had enough sense before not to buy. Yellow Submarine & The Wall are the 2 movies that combined art & music and destroyed my mind at an early age. These 2 films and their impact on my young brain are responsible for my addiction.
