Afternoon all, I’m just back from my walk. My legs felt this one moreso – which I suppose is a good thing.
Anyway, after forgetting to do so a few times, I can finally share my Amazon order from last week now that it’s all here. The first CD arrived on Wednesday which was obviously Joe Strummer’s birthday. Naturally, I didn’t want to make any posts that were unrelated to Joe on that day. Anyway, I got the 2CD version of Atomic: The Very Best of Blondie which comes with the bonus Atomix disc (a compilation disc of remixes). There’s also Mirage which is only the third Fleetwood Mac album I have on CD, Ghost In The Machine which is my first Police studio album and Bleach (Special Edition) by Nirvana. I actually have all of Nirvana’s studio albums now. I’ll post a picture of my burgeoning Nirvana collection soon. This should have been my last Amazon Order for around about six weeks, but something surprising happened last night. I’ve been searching for Earthquake Weather by Joe Strummer for around about six months. I can even remember traipsing around a record fair back in April trying to find it. It’s very rare because it’s been out of print for years. Why they’ve never reissued it, I do not know. Anyway, last night I searched again (I check for it on a semi regular basis). To my disbelief, my favorite Amazon Marketplace seller – Zoverstocks – had received one copy of it very recently. It goes without saying that I ordered it straight away. It’s just too rare of a record to pass up. I search Zoverstocks for it pretty often and they’ve never had a copy of it in. It could have been months before they had it again; it could have even been never. Along with The Future Is Unwritten soundtrack and the Let’s Rock Again! DVD, it was something I was missing. Those two are also very easy to purchase online anyway. Needless to say, I’m feeling pretty lucky right now!
