Does the Joan Jett record have Little Drummer Boy? That was removed from later pressings

Saturday I went to Jupiter Records and Tapes again, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite record stores. You won't find any sought-after rarities here (it's actually the second store of a place called Folk Arts, and they put the better stuff there) but at $5/record you can really back-fill your collection with "commons". I was planning on just 5-6 records tops, but after around 45 minutes I had 10, and couldn't bring myself to putting any back. So without further ado, I picked up:

The Records - S/T, with bonus 7"
Rolling Stones - Black and Blue
Lindsey Buckingham - Law and Order
The Beckies - S/T
Catch My Soul - OST
The Kinks - Misfits
The Bongos - Beat Hotel (sealed!)
Fleetwood Mac - Tusk *
Billy Joel - The Stranger *
George Carlin - A Place for my Stuff *

* - records I already own, but trying to get a copy in better condition

So yeah, this is a store where you can get Tusk, but not Rumours. Black and Blue, but not Sticky Fingers. Misfits, but not Village Green Preservation Society.

Got a vinyl copy of an old staple of ours: The Ojays' Survival
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvsrGrKLDVo

Many years ago I bought the cassette of this album, and later the CD. While both media types had very good fidelity, I always felt that something was missing from the sound. I thought maybe I was too used to the album or the band.

The vinyl version reminds me of that real gritty philly sound that I used to crave as a kid listening to pop's records. Its a nice feeling.

Yes it does-I gave it a quick clean on the Loricraft and gave it a spin. I was pleasantly surprised with the pressing, very quiet.

Fantastic! I was on a Roxette buying spree recently, looking for all the 45's I didn't have by them...I had some of them, but I did miss a few...Of course, R.I.P. once again to Marie Fredrikssen... :(

Regarding the "Look Sharp" album, is that an original or a reissue??? :-k

It is a reissue- just finished work so I’ll give it a clean and play it tonight- fingers crossed 🤞
I don’t have anything from Roxette on vinyl, just CD’s so looking forward to this evening.

Part of the EMI 100 Centenary collection - analogue production from master tapes.

Not today, but on Thursday when I hosted vinyl night.
A vendor came in with 6 huge crates full of vinyl. I bought
5 from him, and the Elton John came from the UK.
