Why not start 2007 off right with an update of what crossed my desk and entered my ever-growing pile of newly acquired CDs?
It’s been quiet on the CD hunt due to the holidays but I did manage to find some decent albums on Ebay that have eluded me so far:
UFO – Obsession (1978) – This is actually the Japanese reissue from 2000 on Toshiba-EMI, sealed with OBI strip. So far, these are the best issues of UFO albums on CD and I have all but two now (Making Contact and Misdemeanor). Picked this up on Half.com for $35. A little pricey but it fills a hole in the UFO collection. The seller listed this CD as “in stock” but it was really back-ordered, I wasn’t told that until after I purchased. It took over a month but I finally got it just in time for Xmas! Still haven’t opened it yet!
Lita Ford – Out For Blood (1983) – Another gem that came a day or two before Xmas. This one goes for big dollars at auction but I snapped a mint first pressing on CD for under $25. I was going to plunk down close to $20 for a mint vinyl copy but I went the extra mile for the disc. I was the only bidder until a minute left till close, then someone decided to bid. I went from $11 to the final price.
Legs Diamond – Town Bad Girl (1990) – I know nothing about Legs Diamond, never heard any of their music back in the day. I troll many boards and this album always comes up as a rarity AND a decent album. Again, picked up on Ebay for $25 in mint condition.
