Another Post about Old Records

I have an unopened Wilson Picket album (Wicked Picket)
An unopened Quarterflash album, plus Merle Haggard, Devo, and Joan Jett. I opened Joan Jett so I could listen to "I love Rock and Roll" and "Crimson and Clover," and then I thought perhaps I should sell the rest. I bought a pile of albums when the old music store in McMinnville went out of business. I have no idea why I picked Wilson Pickett, Devo, Merle Haggard, Joan Jett, and Quarterflash? Who outside of Oregon has heard of Quaterflash.
I found three NRBQ albums. They are legendary live but their albums kind of suck. Just plain weird. My daughter and I rocked out to Joan Jett. I hurt my back. My wife accused us of dancing. I asked why she would think of that, her reply was that she heard the record skipped.. Twice! We may have had it turned up just a bit...
Everyone is in bed but me. I'm listening to Jimmy Buffett, Changes in Latitude. I picked up a whole Jimmy Buffet collection at a yard sale some time ago. The difference between a well cared for record and a well listened to record is amazing.
Should I open my records or sell them?
I think I'll open them. I really doubt they are worth anything.


  1. Jimmy Buffet could lead to tapping the admiral, but that might help the back. "lime now your acid shows"

  3. I moved on to Gram Parsons at 11:30 p.m. Jimmy Buffet got a little too scratchy. Tomorrow evening I shall try A1-A I know I have it somewhere. Must get limes...

  4. I think it is nice you listen to Sea Food Mama now. I do still hold it against you however for making fun of me liking one of there songs!
    You are getting too mellow, how about some Radio Birdman cuts? Do you remember their Hawaii five O song?

  5. mtrhd, I didn't say I opened the album. It is still sealed... I can't find the Radio Birdmen. The album was "Radios Appear," and I had my own personal copy, so their should be two of them. I am missing some records. I can't really figure out which ones. I had a brand new Dr. Feelgood, Alibi club but all I can find is your copy. My new copy of Teenage Depression is also gone. I can't imagine that I loaned them to anyone. A large box of records is kind of hard to misplace. It appears to be the box of my favorites. Elvis Costello, Almost blue is missing as well.
