    Record shopping on RSD is like going drinking in NYC on St. Patty's Day: it's just not for me. There's more than enough days in the year for me to cause significant damage to my bank account balance while covering a significant portion of a record store's overhead!

              I did pretty well with my picks. It wasn't until I got home that I remembered that my tt was in the shop!

                RSD in the US was the usual assortment of collector bait. Little of substance with the odd exception. On the other hand RSD in Sweden and Denmark once again had some serious reissues of rare prog, psych and jazz exclusive to Scandinavia. I'm in the process of tracking them all down.

                  Was out looking and was not particularly inspired by this rsd's offerings. Picked up Neil's Decade but that was it.

                      Picked up the Elton John 11-17070 and eponymous Marcy Playground. Both are outstanding...I smell sex and candy!

                        I'm just finishing up listening to this Decade remaster. Sounds quite good...maybe better than the original ? I'll have to check out my old copy.
