Some more stuff I done bought.
KISS – Hotter Than Hell, Rock and Roll Over and Dynasty Vinyl (Missing Glasgow £10 for the lot)
I’m always on the lookout for KISS LPs and there was a load suddenly appeared in Missing Records that I cherry picked from. None of the frills or extras that some original issues might have had but they were in great condition, were only £4 a pop and the chap gave me the three for £10 which was a cool deal. Still on the lookout for KISS, Dressed to Kill, Love Gun and Alive II but it’s only a matter of time before I get my grubby mitts on them!
Guns N’ Roses – Chinese Democracy Vinyl (Amazon Marketplace £6)
I absolutely adore this album and I’d been on the lookout for a cheap vinyl copy as I had a right clear notion this would work great as a double LP. Due to its lukewarm reception it didn’t take a genius to work out that the price for this was eventually going to drop so I played the waiting game and finally pressed “add to basket” when it hit £6!
I enjoyed The Stranglers’ La Folie so when I saw this going for £3 at my local Fopp I couldn’t say no. Haven’t listened to it yet, mind you, but it’s not going anywhere either. I feel sorry for people that don’t live near a Fopp…
Black Flag – The First Four Years Vinyl (Monorail Glasgow £13)
Been wanting to check out Black Flag due to my renewed interest in all things Rollins-related. Fact-fans will note, however, that Rollins doesn’t actually appear on this one but I wanted to start at the very beginning. This is pretty much what I expected: fast, aggressive, catchy and fun! Bought this repro-vinyl at Monorail in Glasgow for a respectable £13 which is not a shabby price at all for an import album. Great shop!
Rollins Band – The Only Way to Know For Sure (Amazon Marketplace £10)
Rollins Overload! Emphatically recommended by the keeper of the Thumb and a shoe-in for my Live After Live After Death series. I’ll review in more depth later but I’m pretty blown away by this. Intense heavy rock with a really loose bluesy delivery. The whole band is tireless and on fire. Took a couple of weeks to arrive despite the sterling efforts of the Canadian Postal-Canoes crossing the Atlantic but this is proof that good things come to those who wait!
