What have been your recent purchases and what should people look out for?
Artist: Roger Waters, Album: Amuzed to death.
So..now is this “must have” album also in my possession. 🙂
Paul Rogers, The Royal Sessions.
A few years back I picked up Amused to Death, the most expensive album I’ve bought. How much did you pay for yours?
I do have the same album on preorder from Acoustic Sounds hopefully they will get it made soon , latest info states October this year.
I spend between $300-$500 a month on vinyl, but here are my recent purchases:
Los Lobos-Kiko on MOFI
The Gaslight Anthem-The “B” Sides
Lucinda Williams-Lucinda Williams (Red Colored Vinyl)
David Bowie-Rebel, Rebel (7″ Picture Disc)
Muddy Waters Hard Again promo copy.
Like Mofi I spend a good deal of cash each money buying music, though my purchases are typically on CD.
I do buy some vinyl. The latest vinyl purchases, all from Amazon:
Led Zeppelin III (pre-order)
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – ‘Will the Circle be Unbroken’ 40th Anniversary edition
Grateful Dead – One from the Vault
The Doors: Morrison Hotel *QRP 45
Tedeschi-Trucks Band: The newer live one 3LP set
The Beatles: Revolver: Orange Label *used
Joni Mitchel: Hejira Have bought 2 used copies lately
David Crosby: If I could only remember the title.
Mark Murphy – “That’s How I Love The Blues” (Japanese pressing)
Marian McPartland – “Portrait Of Marian McPartland” (unopened)
…. both from Bullseye Records, Milwaukee.
“for Your Ears Only” by proteus 7 on Dorian CD label.
My latest have been a few dozen Real Gone Jazz sets from Amazon.
They have 6 to 8 Jazz albums in each box. mainly from the 50’s 60’s aand are great for filling in collections.
So Out of each box I might have already had one album on LP or CD. So with this purchase I have added over 160 new to me full Jazz albums of really great material.
They compliment the earlier ProperBox sets I have.
And cheap too. Average cost per box with shipping was under $13 each set.

Lucinda Williams– red vinyl
Rogers’ Royal Sessions is one of the best records– sq wise–that I own.
