Took a ride to my brother's...he said he had my birthday present...as usual, he always gets records by the box ("I want the whole box! How much for the whole box?")...so? I got the box...out of all of them, these are the most interesting:

Hummm and Strum Along, Chet Atkins on RCA Living Stereo (gatefold, w/booklet)

The Fabulous Johnny Cash on Columbia (early '60s red label, white name at top).

Original Golden Hits, Volume 1, Johnny Cash on Sun/Singleton.

Johnny Cash's Greatest Hits Volume 1, Columbia (same red label, white name on top.

The Christmas Spirit, Johnny Cash, Columbia, same label as others.

Perry At His Best, Mr. Como on RCA Victor, black label, silver print

Merry Christmas, Bing Crosby on Decca (original '50s black label.

The Sea, Rod McKuen on Warner Brothers-7 Arts.

All of these are in great shape and cleaned up nicely.
They were the most interesting of a milk crate-sized box full of antique store (that one's, anyway...or the ones they let my brother have for the money he'd pay).
Want to know the whole box? Let me know.

Sure, I'd love to hear what was in the box, Dasher! :D

In the meantime, I stopped at a couple of thrift stores myself and I picked up cheaply...

1. LORETTA LYNN Hymns (Decca)
2. JOHNNY CASH The Gospel Road (Columbia)
3. PHIL COLLINS No Jacket Required (Atlantic)
4. CHER Bittersweet White Light (MCA)
5. JERMAINE JACKSON Jermaine Jackson (Arista)
6. CHERYL PEPSII RILEY Me Myself And I (Columbia)
7. VARIOUS ARTISTS Golden Goodies Vol. 5 (Roulette) (Doo wop compilation)
8. "Rock On '74" (T.E.J. knock-off compilation)
9. DORIS DAY & ROBERT GOULET "Annie Get Your Gun" soundtrack (Columbia)

I also picked up a couple 78's...

10. JOHNNIE RAY Cry/The Little White Cloud That Cried (Okeh)
11. JO STAFFORD & FRANKIE LAINE Hambone/Let's Have A Party (Columbia)

and these 45's...

12. MERI WILSON Telephone Man/Itinerary (GRT)
13. DINAH WASHINGTON September In The Rain/Wake The Town And Tell The People (Mercury)

Finally, I picked up another copy of Sade's "Promise"...I have the 45's and the LP and the cassette, but having the CD now is a little more convenient and I never refuse a good copy of this one, whenever I see it, as it is a longtime favorite! :D

Again, one never knows what they'll find in the thrift stores...I also saw some speakers, four Fisher XP-55's, but I passed them up at $39.99...I'm pretty good on speakers at the moment, but maybe something will catch my eye when the electronics expo rolls around in January... :-k

Oh, and I went back to the thrift shop where I'd picked up a stash of 45's (mentioned on the 45' thread) and found a copy of Bobby Darin's "Clementine" album...

I ALMOST picked up my 34th turntable, too, but decided against it...

47439
47438
47437

I saw these JBL's, too (Not sure of the model) for $39.99...

47440
47441

I just couldn't do it, though... 8-[

Yup...gets that way, doe'n't it? When I was out to my brother's house, I saw a whole lotta things he addef, a few that were there, etc...."take 'em! They're outta here!", he said.
Couldn't, tho...too many of mine to work with.
Sumpin' on speakers next door, maybe...

You oughta hear Joni's original take, too! Quite different! :)

Just going through this thread and found this. I saw Joni Mitchell in Berkeley, Ca back around 1970 when I was 18. She did this song almost exactly as here in the video. I remember I cried when I heard it.

I cried again, just now.

Croz always said he loved Joni's chords...being a musician miself, I added to the Court and Spark I already havd. Sat up with my aquired Joni-brary...Heijira <(sp?), Mingus, For the Roses, and others...what an ethereal evening...
Yes, I welled up on break at work...

1. STYX Cornerstone (A&M)
2. BILLY JOEL The Stranger (Columbia)
3. FOREIGNER 4 (Atlantic)
4. BOB SEGER & THE SILVER BULLET BAND Stranger In Town (Capitol)
5. JUDY GARLAND Miss Show Business (Applause) (That "Judy" film looks interesting, even to just a casual fan as I...)
6. PRINCE & THE REVOLUTION Purple Rain (Warner Bros.)
7. BOB SEGER & THE SILVER BULLET BAND Beautiful Loser (Capitol)
8. FLEETWOOD MAC Tusk (Warner Bros.)

I know many of you have some of these records...I was just elated to find them in nice shape for 50 cents apiece! :D

You can't argue with those albums or the bargain price either. As Smokey liked to say "you better shop around" to get those great deals.
