As I didn’t post about my dismal 2016 I feel like the first post of this year will be what my plans are for the future.
I spent a lot of time buying newer records last year that I didn’t really make a dent in my want list. So my biggest focus this year is to tackle some big wants. I will concentrate on ten and see where I end up.
2017 Want List:
- Bold – s/t on pink or orange/pink mix
- Gorilla Biscuits – Warzone B-side
- Chain of Strength 7″ clear (This will have to do since a silver sleeve might be impossible)
- Vision – “Undiscovered” green
- Insted – “Bonds of Friendship” white
- Turning Point 7″ gold
- Clutch – “Pitchfork” gold or clear
- Headfirst – “Back in Control” red
- Unbroken – “Life, Love, Regret” blue
- Time Flies – “On Our Way” Test Press
I think it’s a pretty hefty list but I think most of these are not impossible to get. I just have to reach out to the right people and maybe just join the RevPro Boards.
Back in 2007 Decibel Magazine came out with a Filthy 50 list of proto-metal must haves. The kicker is that I cannot use any type of online platform to purchase any of these records. It’s old school digging. Here is the list. A friend of mine told me his friend completed this challenge and it took him three years to complete. Yikes!
So, I’m pretty excited about this year. I will be posting a lot of stuff that I had neglected to post last year the remainder of the month. Let’s see what I can accomplish.
