This was my best budget LP find this summer. $10 for a nice group of jazz LPs.

Thanks, guys...I went back to another one of my local shops and picked up for 50 cents each...

2 45's...

1. NAT KING COLE Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup/The Sand And The Sea (Capitol)
2. FRANK SINATRA High Hopes/All My Tomorrows (Capitol)

2 LP's...

3. RICHARD MARINO & HIS ORCHESTRA The Magic Beat!

and the piece de resistance...

4. CHARME Let It In

They were a disco group that featured some early appearances from a young Luther Vandross and Gwen Guthrie...





and then 1 CD of opera favorites titled "Escape Through Opera"...Figured I'd give it a chance... 8-[

Anyway, more good stuff! :D

After a weekend of dodging rain with hangin' wash, eventually to go to the laundromat (dryer's broken), fixing a hole where the rain gets in (I heard that somewhere...AND I'm wandering...), I went back to work to find a couple records for a mere 25 cents each.

I have no idea who these people are, but the red vinyl, the condition (absolutely clean), AND at a quarter? OK...
Then...

Juice Newton's hit album...for a quarter...and clean enough where a few spins in the Spin Clean shined it right up and not sounding too bad for the "wheres it came from".
It was a good Monday.

I wholeheartedly approve of those, Tink...And you'll love the Astrud LP!



The Robbie Dupree and Poco albums are also great! You don't argue with $1 each, either! 8)

I have all the Astrud Gilberto albums, but I could use a better copy of "Beach Samba"...All are worth getting, though, if you love good bossa nova jazz! =D>

Just a recommendation, but if you like some good 70's pop-jazz, you should take a look at your fellow Canadian Gino Vannelli's early catalogue..."Powerful People", "Storm At Sunup", "The Gist Of The Gemini" and "A Pauper In Paradise" should be on your list, if you don't have them, as well as his first one, "Crazy Life", which I recently "rediscovered"! =D>



A good system will reveal the velvety ethereal intricacies of that music flawlessly! Here are but a few more highlights from his early albums...







Of course, "Brother To Brother" is his ultimate masterpiece and each song is worth the price of admission!




If you find any of those cheap, they are worth picking up! 8)

If you want a great "road trip" album for those long night drives, I highly recommend Juice Newton's "Greatest Hits" album...During a camping trip with my cousin once a few years back, she had that cassette tape on repeat and it was great! :D

I was reading the notes on the Poco LP and saw they had Timothy B. Schmidt in the lineup. I remember seeing him in the early 80s with Jimmy Buffet where he did a few of his songs including I Can't Tell You Why which was with The Eagles.

Great stuff! If you like that Poco LP, I also recommend the follow-ups "Cantamos" and "Head Over Heels", as well as their '77 LP, "Indian Summer", '78's "Legend" and 1980's "Under The Gun"...Underrated country-rock IMO! 8)

40064







I also recommend some Aztec Two-Step (at least their first two albums), Richard Torrance & Eureka and the 1972 LP, "Milkwood", which features the late Ric Ocasek and Benjamin Orr of The Cars doing some nice folky-sounding CSN-type stuff like this early in their careers...

IMHO that is one of the best parts of budget LP hunting. No problem taking a flyer for buck or two or $.25.

Yup, reading this thread I got motivated to clean up and put on an LP like that from this weekend. Pretty standard new wave 79/80 but not to bad and I had never heard of them.
