I am always trying to find Miles Davis Kind of Blue for under $20 at the markets

May have missed it but, if a fan, Guns N' Roses "Appetite for Destruction"

I would add Madman Across The Water to your Elton John.
Fandango and Rio Grande Mud to your ZZ Top
To your Black Sabbath add- Black Sabbath,Master of Reality and Volume 4.

They had a copy of Rio Grande Mud when I bought Tejas on Monday but it was $35 so I passed. All good albums I will add to my list.

I actually have that one. I have about 10-12 albums I haven't cataloged yet for one reason or another.

I almost bought a record player over the holidays but didn’t because the reviews were split. What one do you recommend or have?

I have a Crosley C100. It’s a decent starter turntable for the price, I really have no complaints.

That said, I’ll probably upgrade at some point this year.

I inadvertently left Queen and Bad Company off my list ................ pretty much 'must haves'.

Live Bullet by Bob Seger is a must on vinyl

Nice to see a good selection of John Prine, and some Flatt and Scruggs.

A mother lode of John Prine dropped at a local record shop at noon today. Got there as they opened with about 7 other people and was able to snag them all.

"Sweet Revenge" is one of my favorite albums.

I love that 3 of them are DJ copies with "suggested cuts for air play" listed out. All of them were in damn good shape, too.

I have some Prine, but on CD. Think it's a two-CD collection of a bunch of his stuff. Always have liked his sound.

Looking at your collection, I noticed a total lack of Iron Maiden, which has caused me to come to the conclusion that you suck on multiple levels. I'd advise at least getting their live 2-record album Live After Death to at least somewhat improve your standing in my eyes. And then virtually every-fucking-thing else! Maybe a touch of Dream Theater, as well, in order to look more sophisticated and refined. Images and Words is a great starting point, but their earlier stuff is all good and comparatively accessible (way fewer 10+ minute songs that are more "show off how technically skilled we are" than "catchy, fun to casually listen to").

I definitely want to pick up some Iron Maiden. It's hard to find old presses at affordable prices.

My wantlist is expanding much quicker than my wallet will allow, unfortunately.

That's the shitty part of it, isn't it? We need BMG and Columbia to get back in business with their Get 12 For $1 and Then Buy 6 Over 2 Years deals because that's how I built my collection when I was growing up.
