New Release Tuesday – 6/27/06

Posted: June 28, 2006 in CD Scavenger Hunt

Another Tuesday has come and gone and I sit here the day after with the spoils of my quest.

  1. Saxon – The Eagle Has Landed III (2 CD set) – $13
  2. Deep Purple – Rapture Of The Deep (2 CD special/tour edition) – $16
  3. Metal Church – A Light In The Dark – $10
  4. Warrant – Born Again – $10

I had called Monday, after I got the weekly e-newsletter, and spoke to my new contact at the store. He informed me that their delivery manifest only had 1 copy each of Saxon, Deep Purple, and Warrant. He also mentioned that they can’t hold them, they have to put them on the shelf, company policy. So I was first one in the door Tuesday morning with the kids in tow.

Even though they had only 1 copy of 3 of the new albums, it was nice to see the Metal Church section filled with brand new copies of most of their albums. They also had a dozen copies of the new album and a promo poster displayed. I tried bargaining for the poster but my store contact had dibs. Good to see Metal Church getting a decent push from a local shop.

To make the day a little more exciting, I checked the mail and found a package. For Father’s Day, I was given an Ebay Gift Certificate for $50 and I immeadiately blew it on….

  1. UFO – No Heavy Petting (Japanese edition, 2000)
  2. UFO – The Wild, Willing, and the Innocent (Japanese edition, 2000)

These 2 CDs replace some old, worn out cassettes. I had bought all the UFO albums on cassette from a shop in Pawtucket a few years ago, some were still sealed, some were used but I got them all for $25. I’ve been slowly acquiring them on CD from a dealer on Ebay.

Now I have to find the time to listen!

    Kurt is now the only original member left in Metal Church. When it gets down to one guy that’s when it bothers me that they are using the band name.
