I couldn't agree more. I love them! Long story (sort of) short-ish.. I bought everything from them that I saw come through my local record store (among many other punk records from that time). Who doesn't like blue mohawks and pink tutu's? I never had a TT when I was younger and occasionally got to play my records at friends houses. They lived in original sleeves in M & NM+ condition in a bunch of milk crates in my parents basement until I was into my late 20's.. I moved far out of state with the intention that I would collect my things when I got settled in.. sister had a sassy cat that marked it's territory.. dad threw out what he thought were ruined records. When he told me I was mortified.. when I told him what he had done, he was mortified.. a few years ago I randomly connected with Wes Beech and mentioned the story and he hooked me up with everything I was missing from my original collection and he signed 4 of them and threw in a guitar pick. I was so appreciative for that. Very cool guy!

The first album I bought new was Hotel California.
I bought it from a Walgreens I think and i remember wishing i had enough money to buy the new video game that was on display; Pong!
I also saved up enough to buy a set of Puma Clyde's that summer.
Life was good.

I think is was around 10 at the time. It was the movie soundtrack to Star Wars. I still have it, but it’s all scratched.

My first vinyl LP, bought with my own money, was the soundtrack to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Eric Clapton - Unplugged

Massive mistake as I then had to spend a lot of $$$ because I fell in love with the sound and the cheap TT I bought to deep my toe in just couldn't cut it already.
