Not embarrassing, pretty boring actually. I mean, I love these records but they’re classics so what more can I say about them that hasn’t already been said? I promise I won’t be so silent on all subsequent records, trust.
The worst record I’ve got came from a Salvation Army used bin, which I typically avoid because it’s usually terribly organized and only has records by Englebert Humperdinck. On that day though, I was feeling especially adventurous.
I find this one, see the cover think “Hey that’s pretty cool,” then I see Quincy Jones Presents and I think “why haven’t I heard of this?” then I flip it over and see the back and think “WHY HAVEN’T I HEARD OF THIS???”
Number two is “Earthbound” by Some Velvet Sidewalk.
If I was to buy one record for a friend? Well it would be Nosferatu D2's 'We’re Gonna Walk Around This City With Our Headphones On To Block Out The Noise', of course! It’s a masterpiece! I would also buy it for my worst enemy, just so they would resent me more because I was the one who introduced the ferocious guitar and vocals of Ben Parker and the “woah how is he doing that?” drums of his brother Adam to their life.
Isn't Tim lovely? Aren't his records great? I was going to plug him a bit at the end but he's done a great job of that himself so we'll take it straight from the Woulfe's mouth:
"I’m planning something huge for my next issue. I figure if I’m gonna blow all my money on a (supposedly) dying format I should at least do it properly and make it large. So, if you’re interested in contributing something send me a mail! firstname.lastname@example.org"
Rock on Tim, you're a better man than I.
