Well it’s been a lazy New Years Days so far and I have so much to actually do. Oh well procrastination does have its place sometimes especially when you want to start your first blog post of the New Year with a banger!
I received this a couple of days ago and hadn’t had time to open the package yet. Anyway, there it sat on top of my turntable just waiting for me. You see this was my Christmas present to myself that just arrived too late. Well it was definitely worth the waiting in many different aspects.
This is something that I have never owned and have always wanted. I’ve always had a first pressing on black since I bought it from Smash in DC waaaaay back in my high school days. It was 1991 and Turning Point was definitely my favorite band at the time. I was actually very lucky to see them in DC several times.
So many years later the quest for a clear copy has been completed. I’m actually quite happy that I didn’t get this early on in life as it would have most likely been sold off in the early 2000s when I purged my vinyl collection. That definitely won’t be happening this time around.
Bang!!! How’s that for a first post!!!
P.S. Thanks to Marcus and Mike for the words of encouragement.
