just ordered Accept- Restless & Live

Just managed to pick up the DVD/2CD version of this today.  CD is sounding killer so far.

dreadnought - bridging realms
saor - guardians
xanthochroid - blessed he with boils

all in the past few days. gotta love dat black metal

edit:
new tonight
keelhaul - keelhaul i

actually the first album from this bunch i ordered way back at the end of january but it had to ship from finland so i'm not surprised it only just showed up

edit:
dreadnought - lifewoven

bought digital on bandcmap because i gave up on trying to find a physical copy of this (plus, tbh, the physical copy of bridging realms i got was a bit disappointing packaging-wise, the digipak is really thin and tore a bit & there's no booklet or anything, though the digipak art is cool)

Judas Priest- Turbo deluxe

I'm still deciding if I'm gonna buy this one.  It just doesn't seem essential just for another live concert IMO.  I'll have to check a few tracks from the concert first I think.

I'm listening to the live tracks as I write this.  This is a great show, very similar to Priest Live.  I think it was taped a couple months before it.  I will say that the updated album cover is outstanding.  A blacklight type cover, which just looks very cool.

I know I'm not helping your cd buying addiction, but I say get it!!

Thanks j haha.  Yeah, the similar or same set (not sure if any difference) as Priest Live is what is putting me off.  Knowing me, if I go shopping and see it instore, I'll probably end up buying it.

Electric Light Orchestra: Out of the Blue
Genesis: Duke

First haul in a while - the move to Raleigh has me way behind in some areas, so I rectified that with an Amazon order.

CDs:

Haken - Affinity
The Neal Morse Band - Similitudes of a Dream
Nova Collective - The Further Side

Blu-rays:

The Neal Morse Band - Alive Again
Neal Morse -  Morsefest 2014
Neal Morse - Morsefest 2015 (preorder - should have it this week sometime)

So far I am about halfway through Alive Again and it's been fantastic, and I'm on my first listen of Nova Collective, and it's awesome.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

In the past 2 weeks:

CDs
Jethro Tull - Broadsword and the Beast  Already have this on CD but I saw the remastered version with the bonus tracks for $7 so bought it basically for the bonus tracks. Well worth it as they're pretty good.

Iron Maiden - s/t  Still have my vinyl copy which I bought back in 1981. As I haven't had a working stereo amp for the past the past 5 years I haven't been able to play my vinyl albums, so I'm slowly buying CD copies of albums I have owned for years on vinyl. I listen to my CDs on a Sony micro system. Far from ideal, but it does the job.

Metallica  - RTL
Whitesnake - 1987
Within Temptaion - Hydra (Deluxe Edition)

Vinyl
Just because I don't have the facilities to listen to my vinyl at the moment, doesn't stop me buying it. I'm not interested in 180 gsm reissues, only collect vintage albums from second hand record stores. Don't really have a logical reason, bit like a book collector only being interested in early editions I suppose.

Yes - Close to The edge
Jethro Tull - Benefit
Uriah Heep - The Magician's Birthday.

Above three albums I've owned for many years on CD. As a student in the late 70s - mid 80s, I never got around to getting these on vinyl. Now finally have them. Won't part with the CDs though. My CttE CD is signed by Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman and Roger Dean. Roger Dean also signed my Magician's Birthday CD.

Bo Hanson - Music Inspired by The Lord of the Rings
Couldn't believe my luck when I picked this up for $10 at my Revival Records, my local vintage record store. I've only ever seen it once before. Still haven't been able to listen to it but I really enjoy his album Magician's Hat, which I have on CD.

I'm so jealous for not living in country Amazon deliver in reasonable time for reasonable price :lol
BTW I got the used The Cure - Disintegration CD yesterday which I ordered from eBay for 3.5 GBP :biggrin: I'm not home so I didn't have chance to see and hear it yet but almost everything I got from there before was like new.

I don't actually use amazon that often to be honest. Hopefully it may even come a day early, everything is crossed  :corn

Vinyl purchases at my local used vinyl store which was celebrating World Record Store Day. All vintage albums not reissues.

Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick
I've had this on CD for years but finally found a copy in absolutely mint condition. The St Cleve Chronicle doesn't have a blemish on it. Really happy to get it for $35 Aus.

Marillion - Misplaced Childhood
Again, have had the CD for years, but it's the only Fish era vinyl that I didn't buy when it was originally released. The store also has a couple of 12" Marillion Singles and the double live album The Thieving Magpie. Think I'll be going back soon to get TTM and Grendel.

Triumph - Never Surrender
The first Triumph album I've owned in any format. Having lived most of my life in regional towns/cities in Australia, Triumph albums just don't appear in local music stores.

Very happy with the haul or $70Aus given the excellent to near mint condition of the albums and the fact that they are all vintage, not reissues, which I am not at all interested in.

Every Triumph album is a great album... well, except for Edge of Excess - that's simply mediocre.

I still remember Allied Forces being released back in around '82, hearing a couple of tracks from it and being very impressed. Over the years I've only ever read good things about them including here. I've really been looking to get hold of any of theirs albums, but as I posted previously, almost impossible to find  anything of theirs in regional Australia. When I order stuff online, there's always other bands I seem to go for rather than Triumph. Glad to finally have something of theirs and looking forward to giving it a spin sometime.  :smiley:
