I remember watching the 90’s IT tv miniseries as a kid. I don’t remember much about it to be honest, besides Tim Curry’s iconic performance as Pennywise. Even though that show doesn’t really hold up anymore, I think Tim Curry’s performance will always live on. As far as the score by Richard Bellis goes, I think it matches with the wackiness of the series quite well. I love the mix of orchestral instrumentation and synthesizers. It’s very “90’s” if you know what I mean, with its melodies and instrument choices. There was no way I couldn’t pick this release up though, it’s another great one by Waxwork Records. A triple gate fold, 3xLP with three “balloon colored” records and some truly insane art by Matt Ryan Tobin. I’m curious to know what everyone prefers….Tim Curry, or the 2017 version of Pennywise played by Bill Skarsgård? Let me know.

My acquisition of records has slowed down a bit because, gosh, they cost money, but my latest is the orchestral score for Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.

Happy July 4th! This is the most patriotic record I own—a 1985 U.K. shaped picture disk that was a bonus with The Untouchables’ Wild Child LP—and the song “Free Yourself" is perfect for the day that the U.S. celebrates freeing itself from the U.K. (it’s good for any other day, too). I originally took this photo on my turntable, but had to reshoot it because of where the turntable peg sticks out of Clyde Grimes’ legs (let’s just say it had quite the 3D effect!).

A sweet find over the weekend: A 1979 test pressing for Blondie’s breakthrough single, “Heart of Glass.”

Wandered around NYC today and came across this Rolling Stones cover site—124 East 24th Street, just off Park Avenue Sputh. They shot the cover of a forgotten single there, “Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadow?”

One of my favorite sets of records in my collection: the three-part UK shaped picture disks for “You Take Me Up.” They interlock like a puzzle and cumulatively are the size of a skateboard deck!

The perfect Father’s Day gift from my family: a new clock made out of a recycled vintage Joan Jett “I Love Rock N Roll” LP. Looks as if it’s always had that spot on the wall. I am a lucky dad (and husband)!

So I picked up this odd promo set in Vegas—two square-shaped colored vinyl 7”s for Huey Lewis & The News’ “Hip To Be Square.” They come in a PVC wallet thing, and apparently not only were these sent out as promo records back in the day, but there’s other colors out there as well. I’ve never been a fan of the Fore album, which this is taken from, but this single is probably the most bearable song on it. I’ve caught Huey a few times over the years, including on the Sports tour when they played Pier 84 on the Hudson River in New York City. I remember it blew my mind what showmen they were; unabashed corniness but they clearly enjoyed it – enough so that the crowd made them do three encores, something that hundreds of concerts later, I’ve never seen happen again for any act. It was all downhill from there – never liked “Power of Love” and again, wasn’t much for Fore, but they have my respect – they could really turn it on when they wanted to.
