I went to my local Newbury Comics for an anniversary sale yesterday, 20% off everything, and picked up an interesting variety of records on vinyl yesterday. 1) Monty Alexander's Love You Madly - live at Bubba's. This was a RSD release from Resonance Records that was in the sales bin. With the additional sale, it came to $32. And oddly, from the promotional materials, it seems to have been mastered all-analog, which is unusual with Resonance, as every vinyl record from them previously has been mastered digitally. 2) Laura Benanti s/t. She's known as a Broadway musical theater actress, but she also has a great cabaret act. She tends to take personal and surprising twists on pop and musical theater songs. Newbury Comics arranged with Sony Records to put out her latest album exclusively on vinyl, and she has signed every one of the 500 copies. 3) Devils and Dust by Bruce Springsteen. This was a reissue copy from last year. I haven't heard the whole thing previous to buying it, but this, too, was in the sales bin. With the additional sale, it came to about $17. 4) The 45rpm MoFi of Dire Strait's Love Over Gold. I have been wanting a copy. Usually Newbury Comics overprices their stuff. They have a OneStep of Stevie Ray Vaughn's Couldn't Stand The Weather for $166. Who knows, with the market for OneSteps, someone will jump at that copy one day. NC normally prices their MoFi 45rpms at $60, but it had been stickered at $50, normal retail. In fact, it initially rang up at $60, but the sales clerk corrected it, then took the 20% off. I'll have an interesting array of listening to do over the next week.
