I splurged tonight at Amazon.com, mostly due to the Acetone thread in music, which led me to listen to their four albums on YouTube the last few days.

Acetone - Cindy, If You Only Knew, S/T, York Blvd. For some reason Allmusic.com rated them all at 4 out of 5 stars, except S/T which they only rate at 2 stars. It sounded fine to my ears. If You Only Knew was the only one I had to buy used. It cost over $50 for a new cd version.. So I hope it lives up to good rating condition given by the seller. I tried the iTunes route, but they only had S/T and York Blvd as well as the new compilation, which I not planning to buy quite yet. I would love to get my hands on that book. I know it's been sold out for awhile now.

I also purchased Sketches of Brunswick East by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. This is their third album of 2017. They had previously mentioned that they might release 4 or 5 albums this year.

The Babe Rainbow – The Babe Rainbow: I bought this because I really liked the Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest track, but that song is not really representative of the album. I think I like it ….. there’s a mixture of sounds on it. Over all it reminds me of the Monkees, and maybe bits of the Moonflowers. Needs few more listens.

LSD and the Search for God – Heaven is a Place: Don’t know how these guys passed me by. Heard “Without You” recently on youtube, and thought “Wow!”. Good stuff!

Wand – Plum: still not sure about this one. I quite like the first 4-5 tracks, but then I find myself getting bored.

Blatoidea – Pesticide: some good old fashioned punk rock. Love it!

Godspeed You Black Emperor
- Luciferian Towers: really like this, and I’ve bought the previous two albums by them too – great stuff!

Margo Price- Midwest Farmers Daughter LP. This one caught me by surprise.
Courtney Barnett/Kurt Vile- Lotta Sea Lice LP. Good LP. Absolute shit pressing.
Allman Brothers- Brothers & Sisters remaster LP. Sublime.
The Triffids- Live Stockholm LP. Actually pretty powerful I must say.
The Woodentops- Live Hypnobeat LP. One word....Frantic!

I haven't posted in this thread for absolutely yonks. I'm not going to go back and list everything I've purchased in the interim (the post would be as long as my arm :D ) but some of the more notable recent ones are:

GYBE- Luciferian Towers. nope, this still isn't doing much for me- despite the superb gig last week. Bosses Hang is great and love the way it builds. but as a whole i'm not finding this album very satisfying.

The Replacements - For Sale. This is a cracking live album. It's pure luck that they happened to record the classic lineup at their peak, the setlist is fantastic and makes me realise how many great songs this band wrote.

Hood- Singles Compiled. Anyone else familiar with this band? I'd seen them mentioned in a couple of places, and took a punt on this as it was only a few quid at Norman Records. It compiles lots of songs (few of which are over 2 minutes long) initially released by various tiny record companies (Earworm amongst others). may take a few more listens to sink in methinks. it ranges from minimalism to discordant guitar stuff.

Lovely isn't it. I bought the vinyl reissue. The original totally passed me by at the time it came out. Always loved Galaxie 500 but never got onboard with their different projects after that.

To break in the new hi-fi, I've been treating myself to tons of new vinyl this last week (again courtesy of the DWP). I've concentrated on getting some of my all-time favourite albums so far, alongside a few that are genuinely new to me. All are brand-new/reissue pressings unless otherwise noted...

Aphex Twin - Richard D. James Album
Can - Monster Movie
Chvrches - The Bones Of What You Believe
Eels - The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett
Four Tet - Morning/Evening
Frank Zappa - Absolutely Free (50th Anniversary Reissue w. extra material and a crummy laser-etching of FZ on side 4)
Frank Zappa - Joe's Garage Acts II & III (2nd hand, original pressing)
Frank Zappa - Two Originals of the Mothers Of Invention (1975 German pressing of Burnt Weeny Sandwich and Weasels Ripped My Flesh! in one package)
Fripp & Eno - (No Pussyfooting)
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Luciferan Towers
Honeyblood - Honeyblood
Jean Luc Ponty - King Kong: Jean Luc Ponty Plays the Music of Frank Zappa (2nd hand, original pressing)
Joanna Newsom - Ys
Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible
Mike Oldfield - Hergest Ridge (2nd hand)
Miles Davis - In A Silent Way
Miles Davis - Dark Magus
Sleep - The Clarity 12"
Slint - Spiderland
Stephen O' Malley - Fuck Fundamentalist Pigs
Stephen O' Malley - Dread Live
Stephen O'Malley - End Ground
Sunn O))) - Monoliths & Dimensions
Terry Riley - A Rainbow In Curved Air (2nd hand)
The Orb - U.F.Orb
The Orb - The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld (2nd hand, 1991 "Special Classical Pressing")
Yes - Close To The Edge (2nd hand)

My best second-hand find was definitely "The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld"; discogs.com tells me it's a special pressing done at a plant specialising in high quality prints of classical music; the cheapest copy (in a similar condition to mine) is currently going for £60, and I paid £20 :)

Also picked up these second hand CDs for bobbins; I'll rip 'em then give them back to charity...

Bjork - Debut
Blur - Modern Life Is Rubbish (2xCD Remastered Edition)
Blur - 13 (2xCD Remastered Edition)
British Sea Power - The Decline of British Sea Power
Finley Quaye - Maverick A Strike
Green Day - Dookie!
UNKLE - Psyence Fiction

The vinyl collection is slowly growing (still buying a fair amount of CDs through being as they are cheap as chips). Got a nice batch from Drone Rock Records (cheers Adam!), and bought the new live record from the mighty Heron Oblivion

also The Wrong Car by The Twilight Sad which is a nice EP inbetween albums, the title track really should have made a proper album, it's one of their best.

It's really nice filling some gaps and letting the record collection grow gradually. I do think I need to get cracking on rebuying some of my all times faves as well (similar to what you seem to have done mc)
