I know I'm probably asking for trouble, but here's the first hard-to-find in a while - E's second solo CD (pre-Eels). Goes for $25 on Amazon, I lucked out recently and found one for $6, replacing one I had lost. Patience is the key. Sometimes I go to Princeton Record Exchange and find hard-to-find items much cheaper than on eBay or Amazon. For example, my friend Laura found a copy of Game Theory's Tinker to Evers to Chance for $10. (Going for $29 on Amazon.)
Great record! I always loved this super-obscure band from Lincoln, NE. If you like what you hear, a few of their earlier works are now available on eMusic and have been rereleased in physical form on the Words On Music label.
BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD, A SMALL FAVOR:
After an extensive inventory process carried out throughout 2007, it has come to my attention that I am missing a number of CDs (at least 50 in number) that I was certain I had but now cannot find. Many of them are relatively easy to obtain, but here are a few that will be quite difficult to capture.
#1 - Shelf life by For Against. Received this as a promo in my You Could Do Worse days (1997). No idea where it is now. Very difficult to find - none of the usual suspects carry it.
We haven't done one of these in a while. I was sifting through my CD singles today and came across this old gem from a long-time favorite, YLT. First time I saw them was when they opened for The Sundays in 1990. My friend Michael was with me and he was much more impressed with YLT. We've been fans ever since. (And where are The Sundays now?)
I looked around but couldn't find this EP listed at Amazon or GEMM. Tracks 2 through 6 were recorded live in Berlin in May, 1989. Track 1 is from Fakebook and Track 7 was released through the Singles Only Label (which was run by Bob Mould).
