Rock & Roll Forever

The following were purchased at a used bookstore.

The Doors - The Doors Soundtrack
The Doors soundtrack from the Oliver Stone film. It's pretty rare because it was only available through the Columbia House Record Club in the early 90's.  
Rock and Roll Forever - Vol 1
Early rock n' roll comp that features awesome artists such as; Joe Turner and T-Bone Walker. I found out recently that this record is pretty rare so I'm pretty excited that I only paid $1 for it! 
The Aristocats - Soundtrack 
This was one of my favorite movies growing up. I used to watch it over and over and now I can rock out to the music! 

Otis Redding - Live In Europe 
Great live show from the legendary Otis! 

Proper Crate Digging

Aretha Franklin - Lady Soul 

Hank WIlliams 

John Mayall - Ten Years Are Gone

Copulatin' Blues - Vol 1 

Copulatin' Blues - Vol 2 

New-ish records

Bring Me The Horizon - There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret. 

The White Stripes - Rag and Bone 

Manchester Orchestra - Mean Everything To Nothing 

Rise Against - Appeal To Reason 

Bargin Priced LPs

The Best of - Judy Garland
Possibly paid around 2 bucks for this double lp of hits. Judy was my Aunt Barbara's favorite so this album has a special place in my heart.  
Crispin Hellion Glover - The Big Problem?
Glover takes a leaf out of Morrison's book on this one, spoken word, unreleased songs, and crazy sounds. It ever has a Charles Manson song on it. Spooky.
Th Best of - Donovan
One of the many comps to sell Donovan on Hickory 

Tears For Fears - Songs From The Big Chair
For awhile I was hearing this Head Over Heels all over the place; in stores, on the radio, Donnie Darko.... It was a no brainer to buy this album. 

Rhinoceros - Rhinoceros 
70's psych on Elektra album that I took a chance on for $5. It's not bad, it's not good but the cover is out of this world and continues to gatefold. 

The Simon Sisters
Early album featuring Carly with her sister Lucy before she was famous. Together the two sing really cute songs for kids. I'll hang on this album for my kids one day.

Doors Bootlegs

The Doors - Waiting For The Midnight Sun
After haggling at a record convention last year, I walked away not owning this record. I got the guy down from $80 to $40 and I still wasn't okay with paying that much. I got really lucky one day ebay surfing. I came across this lp with only a few minutes left on the action, $10, no bids, free shipping. 
Great record! Live recordings and alternate takes from around the time of the Waiting For Sun album. 

The Doors - Mr. Mojo Risin' 
Another wonderful ebay find that I got for around $10-15. Lots of live tracks, previously unreleased. The album picture totally wonderful. Gotta love bootlegs!
