    Nice haul, all in good condition?

    All I have ever found at thrift stores are a bunch of beat up Streisand and Barry Manilow albums....

    If you were to find an album by a band called "Beat Up Streisand" then that would be cool.

    Indeed they were. In better condition then some I've bought at Streetside Records for $20.

    Rush - "Moving Pictures"
    My favorite record store uses an old copy of Moving Pictures as an open sign (with "open" and "closed" written on either side). The day I discovered that it was that album, I was so angry because I want that album oh so badly.

    i love my thrift stores, 70% of my collection came from them (others were ordered, bought at record stores, or given to me from family members)

    i could make Julio and Robafa jealous at my mint condition finds of Led Zeppelin Untitled and Song Remains the Same for a buck

    Wings' "Back To The Egg" was one I had on my wanted list for a long time. Heard "Arrow Through Me" on the radio years ago and finally found a copy of that at a used record store.

    I love "Jane" & "Rock Music" off of "Freedom At Point Zero" and think those two would be a blast to play and would make great additions to the game.

    Little Feat's another one of those groups I have on my list to get some more material on vinyl from. Spent quite a bit of time on youtube listening to "Feats Don't Fail Me Now", "Rock & Roll Doctor" and "Fat Man In The Bathtub" and would like to get whatever albums those songs are on. Was driving around the other day and noticed a used record store a little closer than the one I used to go to. I'll have to go in there and see what they have.

    Awesome haul :).

    I got Chinese Democracy on vinyl when it came out because Best Buy actually had it. After that they started selling vinyl, one is Appetite for Destruction, which I've also purchased. The only other vinyl I have so far is Day & Age (around $15 dlvd on circuitcity.com) and Ten Super Collector's Edition. I want to get more but there's nowhere here at sells it besides Best Buy.

    I broke yet another promise to myself this week when I started buying vinyl for some of my favorite early Revelation Records releases. I picked up a 1st press Gorilla Biscuits self titled 7" with the original poster insert, and both the European import pressing of Side By Side's You're Only Young Once Lp and the awesome picture disc version of the lp. I'm thinking about turning it into a wall clock.

    This was just today. I had a ton of store credit at a store called Bookmans. There is a little too much "classic rock" stuff here, but they didn't have a lot of more recent LP's, and the jazz section was dismal (although I got beaten to an Al Jerrone (sic) record).
