I recently spent a few days shopping for CD’s in the
ALGARNAS TRADGARD – FRAMTIDEN AR ETT SVAVANDE…, SILENCE SWE CD
Psychedelic / progressive rock title that I really used to like a lot – how will it sound in 2010?
ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND – AT FILLMORE EAST, MERCURY
Classic rock music played live, via SACD. I’m not the biggest Allman Bros. fan, but…SACD!
AMON DUUL II – HIJACK, SPV DE CD re
Probably the last Amon Duul II album that I really liked.
BIRTH CONTROL – PLASTIC PEOPLE, REPERTOIRE DE CD
A fantastic Birth Control album, probably my favorite! I never knew about this CD until recently.
BOWIE, DAVID – HEROES, TOSHIBA JPN CD kami sleeve
Nicely mastered and anatomically correct issue. Not my favorite
BRAHMS / TCHAIKOVSKY – VIOLIN CONCERTOS, RCA RED
More chasing the Classical dragon on SACD – Jascha Heifetz and Fritz Reiner!
BYRDS – G.H., COLUMBIA US SACD non-hybrid
I really don’t like buying non-hybrid SACD’s, but…this was never issued any other way as an SACD.
COLTRANE, JOHN – A LOVE SUPREME, IMPULSE US SACD non-hybrid
See above entry.
COOKE, SAM – AT THE COPA, ABKCO
COOKE, SAM – KEEP MOVIN' ON, ABKCO
I wonder how many of these Allen Klein got released as SACD’s? Not a huge Sam Cooke fan.
I did not have this on CD at all, so was pleased to find a used hybrid SACD of it.
CUTLER, IVOR / LINDA HURST – PRIVILEGE, HOORGI HOUSE
The most recent re-issue by his family’s Hoorgi House label, via Rough Trade.
DEAN, ELTON / MARK HEWINS – BAR TORQUE, MOONJUNE
British jazz CD by the late Elton Dean, who worked extensively with Soft Machine.
FAMILY – PEEL SESSIONS, STRANGE FRUIT NL CD5
Live for the BBC 1973 – Roger Chapman & Family!
GAYE, MARVIN – COLLECTION, MOTOWN
Yes, I am an SACD freak these days – whatever can be found used, inexpensive etc.
GLASS, PHILIP / KRONOS QUARTET – DRACULA, NONESUCH
Used CD of this title, $6.95 – the movie on DVD with the same Philip Glass soundtrack, $9.95.
GRUPPO D'ALTERNATIVA – IPOTESI, VINYL MAGIC IT CD kami sleeve
I remember having this Italian prog LP long ago, great cover, not great vocalist.
GUTHRIE, ARLO –
These green tray Rykodisc OST’s are all out of print now, and this was inexpensive.
HACKETT, STEVE – TILL WE HAVE FACES, HERALD
Somewhere in my notes, I realized I wanted a CD of this, and I found an inexpensive used copy!
HAMMILL, PETER – SILENT CORNER AND EMPTY STAGE, CHARISMA
Been trying to pick up the Hammill re-masters used, as possible. Worth it for the bonus tracks!
IMPRESSIONS – COMPLETE A AND B SIDES 1961 – 1968, ECLIPSE
2010 has really been a Curtis Mayfield / Impressions year for me, 60 tracks!
MANZANERA, PHIL – PRIMITIVE GUITARS, EXPRESSION
First time I’ve had this on CD, with bonus tracks!
MORAZ, PATRICK – STORY OF i, VIRGIN
Not a re-mastered version, very inexpensive!
MR. OIZO – LAMBS ANGER, BECAUSE FR CD
The 3rd album from Mr. Oizo, from 2008. French electronica with no rules!
OMNIBUS WIND ENSEMBLE – MUSIC BY FRANK ZAPPA, OPUS 3 SW SACD
Incredible sounding Swedish band playing the music of Frank Zappa very accurately.
REED, JERRY – ESSENTIAL, RCA
I like these 20 track RCA C&W “Best Of” CD’s!
The last of the original Leon Russell albums that I wanted on CD; with 2 x bonus tracks!
SOPWITH CAMEL – s/t, ACADIA
The debut album with “Hello Hello” – real 1966 hippie music!
His debut album on CD, with numerous bonus tracks. The album before “My Coo Ca Choo”.
TCHAIKOVSKY – SYMPHONY No. 4, BIS SWE SACD
Another inexpensive used Classical SACD, this time from
THOMPSON, RICHARD & LINDA – SHOOT OUT THE LIGHTS,
A stereo hybrid SACD, sounded pretty good when I checked out when I got home!
V.A. – GREAT JEWISH MUSIC – MARC BOLAN, TZADIK
“Tribute to Marc Bolan” with Arto Lindsay with Marc Ribot, Lloyd Cole, Tall Dwarfs, Buckethead etc.
V.A. – ORIGINAL MASTERS – THE SINGLES, DEUTSCHE GR DE 2CD
Double CD of Deutsche Grammophon classical 45’s from ’53 to ’65!
V.A. – SCHIZOID DIMENSION – KING CRIMSON TRIBUTE, PURPLE PYR
“Tribute to King Crimson” with Brand X, David Cross and a bunch of people I’ve never heard of.
VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR – GODBLUFF, VIRGIN JPN CD kami sleeve
I updated my CD of this title with a Japanese paper sleeve CD, with 2 x bonus tracks!
YELLO – TOUCH, POLYDOR DE CD ’09 issue
I didn’t even know this existed! Easily the most expensive CD of the trip (over US$30!)
ZAPPA, FRANK – AS AN AM,
ZAPPA, FRANK – MAKE A JAZZ NOISE HERE, RYKODISC US 2CD reI pick ‘em up as I find ‘em. One of the “Beats The Boots” titles and a Rykodisc re-master of a title previously issued by Barking Pumpkin.
