Worth an seperate trip, for sure Lee! With Target Earth not hitting until 2013, RIITIIR will likley land my #1 spot for 2012. A consistently great band, without a doubt.

Sounds like you got a great deal for those 2 discs. A used copy of Master Of Puppets is usually about $9 by itself. Amazing how good Metallica were back then... what happened?! Haha!

Despite my best interests, I bought these used CD's today...

- Steve Hillage: L [remaster]
- Love And Rockets: Express [remaster - to replace the one that my wife lost many years ago!]
- Melvins: Gluey Porch Treatments [remaster with bonus demo tracks]

My 1986 was dominated by this Melvins record, along with same year releases by Celtic Frost, Kreator, Slayer, and of course Voivod! GPT was the weirdest, and argueably the HEAVIEST album of that year.

VOIVOD - Mechanical Mind (red - blue & black 7 inch vinyl with etched B side... you know what I'm talking about)

I've had the Melvins Ozma/Gluey Porch Treatments cd forever, and could never get into it. Nothing clicks for me for some reason and I just hear it as a bunch untalented kids making noize in a garage. I love so many of the Melvins releases and hear so many great things people say about GPT, and have spun it every now and then to see if it has a different effect on my ears and brain but I still get the same thing out of it that I always have... nothing. Then I'll put on Stoner Witch, or Senile Animal or another album of theirs and just be fuckin blown away.

I haven't had time to watch the Helstar dvd but it's the concert of the live double cd that is included with the dvd. It's the 30th Anniversary Reunion show and covers their entire career. I was just thinking it was going to be a compilation of greatest hits, so I was thrilled it was a live new recording. The cds sound incredible and the band fuckin shreds.

Just these...

- Steve Hackett: Voyage Of The Acolyte [vinyl]
- Strawberry Path: When The Raven Has Come To The Earth [CD]

Had a full punch card at this store, so the Strawberry Path was free! Some cool old Japanese prog from 1971.

HELSTAR IS AWESOME. I got into them when I first heard Burning Star when it first came out and was hooked ever since. It would be hard to pick a favorite release by them since they are all great. I just now realized I have 9 discs by Helstar... I'll have to have marathon listening day soon.

You know, I don't think I've ever checked out those Peter Gabriel albums. In reading up on them a bit, I am kind of shocked that haven't... totally on my list to check out!

In the mail...
- VOIVOD: Mechanical Mind [7-inch, black vinyl]

From a local shop...
- Harold Budd/Brian Eno: Ambient 2: The Plateaux Of Mirror
- Fripp & Eno: No Pussyfooting [2-disc edition]
- Judas Priest: Nostradamus
- Moses: Changes [some cool old heavy rock from Denmark, circa 1971]
- The Sword: Apocryphon [deluxe edition]

The Voivod 7-inch just fucking rules all, of course. I somehow forgot that I nabbed one of the limited copies signed by the band!

Decided to check out the Sword's new album after hearding some nice samples... you know what the clerk gave me with the CD? ... A cassette tape release of the album, free with purchase! Haha! Now... what to do with it?

Been a while since I last bought some stuff...

EXODUS - Bonded By Blood, which to my own surprise I never had on CD!
LED ZEPPELIN - I, II & III
MILES DAVIS - Doo-Bop (I am curious to know what's your opinion on that album Mez. Even knowing that he did a "rap" album still I was surprised when I finally heard it)
MOTÖRHEAD - Bastards, The World is Yours
NAPALM DEATH - Utilitarian, great!!!
RAMMSTEIN - Liebe It Für Alle Da
RATOS DE PORÃO - Brasil, Anarkophobia, both nice re-releases on digipack
SEPULTURA - Bestial Devastation/Morbid Visions, Schizophrenia, digipack remasters
ZZ TOP - La Futura, which is on my top 3 of the year.

Plus, I bought "Overkill: The Untold Story of MOTÖRHEAD", by Joel McIver, which is a great read.

Can't believe Bonded By Blood still hasn't received a deluxe reissue. Talk about an important album... and such a good fucking record too! Easily on of the best thrash albums ever. Took me years to get the CD version too.

Tried many times to sit down and listen to it with the most open mind possible. Was never able to really appreciate any part of it, be it songwriting, performance, riffs, vocals, you name it. Perhaps I should've listened to it back in 1985 when not much else was available, but unfortunately by the time when I first heard it I was already spoiled. Metal has seen an explosive growth in the level of musicianship between 1985 and 1990, if you know what I mean

EXODUS rereorded Bonded By Blood with Rob Dukes singing all the songs and titled it LET THERE BE BLOOD. It's killer!!! I think it does help to appreciate BbB by being around when the thrash genre began. YOu had these amazing bands playing these incredibly fast and tight songs, but they all sounded unique. Exodus was definitely in the top 6 and an easy argument could be made that they should have been in the BIG 4 instead of Anthrax... no disrespect to Anthrax, they created their own sound also and were definitely a huge influence on the scene and future generation. Overkill is also another old school name that should be included with the other thrash Gods and is still writing heavier faster and as brutal material as they did back in the 80's.

In the mail the other day:
Peter Gabriel - OVO (nothing close to being thrash )

These two posts sum up what I think of BbB these days. I had it on vinyl but had the hardest of times trying to "get it", in my case mainly because of Paul's vocals/grunts/screeches, which for me never fitted the music. It took me a very long time to finally see the quality of the album in a whole and to realize its relevance for the thrash metal scene.

As for a deluxe edition, I don't think there's any unreleased material left. Maybe release it with the Let There Be Blood CD as bonus? That would be nice and that's what they should have done in the first place, IMHO.

I agree that they should have done some remastering on the original, and included it with the Rob Duke's LTbB disc. If you don't like Baloff's singing then you should definitely get LTbB disc. It's updated versions of the songs still stay true to the originals but Rob's vocals are fuckin' intense. Baloff's did usually remind me of what the Tazmanian Devil would sound like if he sang, but then again his style, delivery, and just all out thrash attitude is what helped give Exodus their unique sound.
