The Scrounger's Report
Mar. 29, 2000
Payday. Means bargain binning. What else could it mean?
A couple from the 50-cent bin:
Red 7 - When the Sun Goes Down. 1987. MCA Records.
A friend had this. I don't recall it being that memorable,
but for 50 cents I'm willing to find out...
Canadian Brass - Christmas With the Canadian Brass. 1981. RCA Records.
Having played the trumpet for 8 years I still enjoy listening
to brass stuff from time to time. This one looked (and apparently
is) way out of print.
Word to videophiles: DVDs appear to be showing up at pawn shops
with increasing regularity. One of the shops I stopped at had a
whole bunch that were still sealed that they were selling for
$12.50 each, 3 for $30. I snagged Starship Troopers, Star Trek:
Insurrection, and the new animated Disney Tarzan all for $30. Bonus.
A couple of discs that I paid full retail for ($11.99-13.99) that
were still sealed in long boxes and blister paks:
Guardian - Fire and Love. 1990. Word/Pakaderm Records.
I traded my copy away a while back, so I decided to replace it.
One of their best efforts.
Gary Moore - Live At the Marquee. 1987. Castle Communications (France).
G-Force - S/T. 1985. Jet Records (United Kingdom).
I have the Castle 2-on-1 which includes this album, but I'd never seen
the actual single-disc version...
Lastly, a used disc that intrigued me, just because it's...well...
Wild - Wild 1. 1988. CBS Records.
How do I describe this...."Billy Idol meets L.A. Guns"?
It's not the greatest thing in the world, but it looked
kinda interesting. Would appeal to glam fans....also has
that "extremely OOP" look.
Till I scrounge again...
