Diggin' the crates..
It's been a long time since I've visited the fine used record establishments (one, in particular) here in Cowtown, Alberta.. Not that I had a whole lot of extra money or anything, I just really, really needed my record fix. Here are some of the goodies I came out with, look for some of the disco selections to be featured on here soon.. *wink*
-Vera - Joey LP (1983, Matra) - Little known early '80s Montreal disco, think a slightly darker, slicker Carol Jiani, Lime etc..
-Leslie O'Hara - Gipsy Boy LP (1978, Crocos/Les disques Martin) - A little known Cerrone production
-Denise LaSalle - Unwrapped LP (1979, MCA) - Sealed, some good disco/disco-influenced stuff on here..
-Madonna - Everybody 12" (1982, Sire) - Partially sealed with the picture sleeve that she apparently hated lol.
-Wilson Pickett - I Want You LP (1979, EMI America) - Excellent R&B/Disco LP by the late Soul legend..
-Gino Soccio - Temptation Eyes/Camouflage 12" (1985, Célébration/Quality)
-Carol Cooper - Tunnel Of Love 12" (1985, Profile) - Hot '80s dance/electro
-Niteflyte - S/T LP (1979, Quality/Ariola America) - Partially sealed.. was expecting disco, but got classy R&B/West Coast MOR instead.. not bad.
-Tina Turner - Foreign Affair (Limited Edition) CD (1989, Capitol) - No, not disco either, but one of my favourite Tina albums. Not to mention a sealed copy of the Ltd. Ed. Passport Edition.. Needless to say, I'm still afraid to open it..
A little aside: if there are any Canadian readers out there, hope you all voted today :-) I'll definitely be glued to the TV tonite!
