CD Scavenger Hunt (The Holiday Edition) – 1/1/07

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.

  1. Steve, you got some great cd´s. Just last week i was listening to the debut by LITA FORD on vinyl and i love LEGS DIAMOND. TOWN BAD GIRL is good, pure hard rock from the mid 80s that i think you will like very much. I like all the LEGS DIAMOND albums, from the first (in those days they call them the AMERICAN DEEP PURPLE) till the last one, a year or two ago.
    About UFO, they are cult by now.

  2. Happy New Year to both of you, thanks!

    Rene – Legs Diamond is one of those bands that I keep meaning to check out and never do. I listened to Town Bad Girl late last night, it was excellent.

  3. STEVEHAPPY NEW YEAR AND I HOPE YOU READ THIS BEFORE THIS CD ENDS. I PUT ON EBAY ANORIGINAL FRICTION 1990 BABY TALK. ONE SOLD ON EBAY FOR 591.00. THE ONE I HAVE IS NEAR 100% PERFECTION. IF IT WAS SEALED IT WOULD BE %100. LET YOUR VIEWERS KNOW TO CHECK THIS OUT. THIS COULD BE THE CD OF 2007. THANKS JDOGMAG
