Badfinger - Wish You Were Here LP



Not a rabid fan of this band, but I dig Straight Up a lot, and this is probably my second favorite after that one. It's a bit mellower in places and not as upbeat as that album, heavy on some Beatle-esque moments here and there even though this is clearly a product of the 70s, not the 60s. Unfortunately I have very mixed feelings on this Rhino reissue. It's a limited reissue on green vinyl pressed by one of my least favorite plants (Rainbo in California) and is a bit noisier than I'm willing to accept. Unfortunately neither Rhino nor the Independent Distribution Alliance wants to stand behind the records they put out anymore, so I'm stuck with this until I can source a better copy.

The Boys - Alternative Chartbusters LP



Never thought I'd own a copy of this on LP, as it's not something that turns up often in shops and I never felt like ordering a copy from Europe and taking my chances on condition. One day I walked into a local shop and it just happened to be there. This is a UK first pressing of the second and best album from this punk rock/power pop band formerly known as the Hollywood Brats. By this time they had dropped some of the NY Dollisms and had a bit more polish, but I think it worked really well. First four albums by this band are all good and worth having, but they never quite topped this one.
