Given some of us cannot spend a lot currently I thought this thread would be useful
The Minutemen, there are Minutemen shops, clothing stores, Drive throughs, where with every purchase you get a free Minutemen cd usually of your choice, however if you want vinyl you have to pay full price.
You can find some at my local thrift shop !
Not suprisingly though , things have changed. They used to have hundreds of albums for $1 each but now the ' better ' albums are $3-5 each. Somebody wised up...
Great sounding old Erasure titles up to 95's S/T
Graham Parker records. Almost none of them are expensive.
Whipped Cream and Other Delights
Paul McCartney - Tug of War
Some albums I've seen at thrift shops over the years.
Boston - Don't Look Back
Tom Petty - Full Moon Fever
Cheap Trick - Live At Budokan(Picked This one up at Goodwill)
Now For Some Lesser Known Albums
Montrose - S/T(Bought)
And A Bunch Of Obscure Indie Albums
Anything by The Moody Blues, Yes, Jethro Tull, Jackson Browne, Billy Joel, Elton John, CSNY (especially solo), Genesis (mostly post-Gabriel), ELP, ELO, solo Beatles, etc can be found relatively cheaply and easily in my experience. I've also found that a lot of jazz fusion and early electronic/new age classics can be found surprisingly easily if you look for them.
EDIT: Or maybe the OP wasn't talking about used record stores given the current predicament?
A thrift shop can't call itself a thrift shop if it doesn't have a copy of this album. And some James Last records.
And Bat Out Of Hell.
Rod Stewart - Every Picture Tells A Story. Got mine mint for two bucks yesterday.
Except you can never find Voodoo Party.
Thrifts: you never know.
I've heard so much about that album I truly wish I could find it!
As said The Moody Blues,
also Genesis and Bee Gees can be found for
Before current problems I work part time in a Vintage Vinyl Store and a lot of quality albums seem to still be plentiful.
Rod Stewart and Elton John always seem to be cheap for great sounding records.
As do Jean Michel Jarre and most Vangelis albums.
How has no one said Donna Summer?
Yes I have em already
Yes but these aren't interesting let alone great records
I bought all my Peter Gabriel era Genesis albums very cheap
From the 70’s I can think of Wishbone Ash and Focus that are cheap and good.
From the 80’s there are to many to mention. Since I was young during the 80’s I can appreciate many of the albums that came out and you can find them everywhere and they cost almost nothing!
I was the exact opposite. You're from Spain so its different there but here all the Collins albums are cheap but you never see the Gabriel albums. In my area the prog representatives in thrift shops are Van Der Graaf Generator and Moving Pictures(Try finding any other Rush album).
It is like trying to find Percy Faith's "Black Magic Woman" album. It's the one that is never in the thrift store!
I bought those PG Genesis albums for 5€ piece.
I always see Van Der graaf generator albums too. But I never buy em, I don't like this band
Some good and great New wave albums are plenty and cheap too. Blondie, Pretenders, etc
