and in a blank case, disc 2 of Vertigo (for sales in Russia only) of Image
It has the last three songs of the regular disc 2 of Alchemy and 8 bonus tracks. I can't find any info on it on the 'Net. I'm listening to it now, and it sounds great.

My weekly trip to McKay's.
First off, before my usual onslaught, I want to thank the good folks on this here board for all their postings about other-than-FZ music. I bought these first three discs, Devin Townsend CDs, because of y'all's recommendations. All three are flawless Japanese pressings with the Kanji lyric books (and 75¢US each).

............................................................................................................................................
Image "27th Anniversary Edition" This is a surreptitious 1998 remaster that sounds much better than my 1996 "25th Anniversary Edition." I know that the "40th Anniversary Edition" most likely sounds even better, but this one was a quarter.

Congrats on the Devin Townsend stuff. He is a genius. Truly marvellous musician.
I got 'Epicloud/Epiclouder' last week. Great.
Also 'The Story of Light' Steve Vai. Good stuff.
Also a couple of Gathering CDs.

Hi,

Just got a batch of things:

Seventh Wave - Things to Come/Psi-Fi
Acid Mothers Gong - DVD
Bill Bruford - DVD
Soft Machine 3
National Health - The Rotter's Club
...
and in keeping with cleaning up my record collection ... also updating some Banco, PFM and Steve Hillage in the next few days.

No Zappa ... right now the choices and releases are a mess and some of the prices are not cool!

Saturday part II
"more of Saturday later..." Went inside TGE with my $1 off coupon and with 25% off came out with
Imagea CD I've been looking for for years (I'm listening to it now).
Imagesealed
$6.13US

on the way out they had put out some more quarter CDs, and I got
Imagesealed for 27¢

On the way home I stopped at McKay's and as I was about to leave with less than 25¢ of CDs, when I was getting out of the elevator, a lady with a cart full of bins of CDs was getting on. I asked her if those were very scratched to which she replied yes. I followed her back to the racks and waited patiently while she pulled the old stock and replenished the first rack. While I was perusing, she did the same to the other rack. I eventually sorted through and purchased
ImageImageImage and Image which is Image without the slipcase, but the booklets and back inserts were intact, but a little worse for wear as they looked like they had been in a CD binder for years. As I have been looking for this one for over 20 years, I was ecstatic on this find. Also got
Imagethe uncensored version to replace my censored one.

Hey MOSHKITO I'm a prog head too!
70's fusion is really my specialty.

Check out an album from 1971 by SUNBIRDS. (self titled )
It's on the Garden of Delights label. It's AWESOME!
Have you heard of The JUPU GROUP (the album 'AHMOO!') It's pretty amazing too!



Also check out the new upcoming Ennio Morricone 4 disc box set called MORRICONE IN COLOUR. This looks cool!

Us prog heads are very misunderstood don't ye know...

Queen + Paul Rodgers Collectors box in the clearance bin at Best Buy. Has the new (2008) Queen + Paul Rodgers cd (Cosmos Rocks) and live dvd. 180 gram vinyl of Cosmos Rocks (double album), Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack, A Night at the Opera, and A Night at the Races. The original sticker was $119.99, the clearance price was $9.99. Too good to pass up.

Another double post, corrected. Even though I went to TGE and McKay's today, I didn't buy any CDs. I did buy a CD rack though.
