Today’s awesome find was a remix promo (on blue vinyl!) of Everything But The Girl’s “Missing”—one of those songs you think you don’t know but you do. It’s the early 90s one with Tracy Thorn crooning the chorus, “And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain.” See? You know it.

The Police on vinyl—meaning Funko Pops, little vinyl figures from pop culture. Here’s Sting, Andy and Stewart laying it down. Great birthday gift from my kid!

Cleaning unused record photos out of my phone: The last of the Tears For Fears UK 12” picture discs that I needed to complete my collection—this one is for “Sowing The Seeds of Love.” Not as pretty as they probably thought it was. I will say, however, that I don’t know where picture discs get their rep for terrible sound—this one sounds amazing.

Cleaning unused record photos out of my phone: Record Store Day makes for strange bedfellows—members of Queen and Foo Fighters on a never-completed solo track by late Beach Boy Dennis Wilson. And it’s actually pretty good. 


This one goes out to, well, me.

Primordial industrial dance music—it’s Age of Chance’s legendary cover of Prince’s “Kiss.” Has to be heard to be believed.

In the Seventies, Heart had some great songs, including my favorite of theirs, the ferocious “City’s Burning,” which somehow wasn’t a hit (probably just too heavy for radio). In the Eighties, they pulled a hard right towards pop metal with records like this—a UK picture disc 7-inch for “Never.” Far more lightweight, it’s a decent song as far as pop metal goes, and Nancy Wilson’s knowing campy preening throughout the video holds up to this day.

After hearing for years that Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme” is the greatest jazz album of all-time, I picked it up and it just didn’t resonate with me the way stuff like Miles Davis’ “Walkin’” or Duke Ellington and Johnny Hodges’ “Side By Side” did Clearly the issue is mine and not the album’s, so I will have to give it another shot. I probably don’t know what to listen for, but so far, it doesn’t live up to the hype. 
What popular albums left you cold when you finally heard them?
