Look What I Found in the Bargain Bin

Golden Smog
Down by the Old Mainstream

Price: S$2.95

Just in case you haven't put two and two together between the fact that this is one hell o' a bloody honkingly excellent Americana rock record featuring members of Soul Asylum, Wilco and The Jayhawks and its meager price, this bargain-find made me feel like the ozone layer repaired itself, that Panda's have become pests because they mate so much, that Singapore 'fried kuey teow' have stopped becoming sweet and sticky and that Petra Nemcova just proposed to me about how she wants to have five kids with me. You know, all that saving-the-world stuff.

And how does Petra Nemcova having kids with me going to change the world? It's simple, I'll go to the bedroom and I'll come back and show you. Give me 30 minutes.

(After 30-minutes) Ah, doesn't the world look like a better place already?

Awesome find!
As a former Camelot Music employee, I can appreciate diving into the bargain bins. I found some great stuff in the bins when I was under their employ.

So what's your best find?

Probably one of the best finds was a 2-disc import of Crosby Stills & Nash for a couple bucks called "Carry On". It's been 10 or more years since I had that job.

I've also picked up some good finds dirt cheap @ the pawn shop. One example is the magnificent "Being There". I already had a copy, but I had to take it home with me as a backup.

Ooooooo nice. "Being There" by Wilco? Yeah picked mine up from some flea market as well. For about $5.00 USD. Quite awesome

Yes... I simply could not leave my beloved Wilco in that pawn shop. It had to come home with me.
