Recent Purchases:

Al Di Meola- Elegant Gypsy.  It's Latin Fusion, and he is incredible.

Elegant Gypsy is very good. "Fight Over Rio," "Race With Devil On Spanish Highway" and "Elegant Gypsy Suite" are the standouts. If you don't own DiMeola's Casino, you should pick it up. "Egyptian Danza" is probably my fave Al DiMeola song, and the entire album is great. I wouldn't rank him in my top ten, but he's an excellent guitarist.

...with Christmas coming up, I hope to get these:

Yes- Close to the Edge.  I hear nothing but good things concerning this band. 

Close To The Edge is Yes' masterpiece. It's a perfect album. That is all.  biggrin.gif

I have Casino on vinyl, but my record player is broken.  "Egyptian Danza" is great, I totally agree.  I also want the album(s) he did with McLaughlin and De Lucia.  He's incredible.  And I've heard that Close to the Edge is their best, so I figured it would be the most logical place to start.  I'm not a fan of Greatest Hits compilations.

Gotta agree with 1001001 concerning Close To The Edge.  I bought The Yes Album and Fragile as my first albums and were amazed by thier level of musicianship and the way they crafted thier melody.  My next purchase was Close to the Edge, and I can easily say now that this album is my favorite Yes album.  It just seemed like the previous two were works to build up the songwriting ability to make CTTE.

Ok, its been 4 weeks and I went out to buy my next 4 cds.  Keeping with the same original rules I set last time, I bought:

- The Beatles - Revolver
- Jethro Tull - 20 Years of Jethro Tull, 3rd CD of a 3 CD box set (I have been looking for this one for over a year and half!!!  FINALLY found it)
- Gary Numan - The Pleasure Principle (New artist I dont have any albums of
- Aaron Copland - Famous Orchestral And Chamber Music, A Copland Celebration Vol. 1 (Has the Billy The Kid Suite, Rodeo, Appalachian Spring, etc..)
- Nine Inch Nails - We're In This Together Single (3rd of 3, likewise, had the first 2 for about half a year, couldnt find this one until today)

Ok ok, so I bought 5, I still kept my original plan of at least 1 new artist and 1 piece of classical work.  The Jethro Tull and NIN I needed because they were peices that completed sets that I had been missing for a while.

As Jack will tell you - I have an additction when it comes to buying CDs.  Here are the last couple of ones I have bought --

Scissor Sisters (self titled) -- the best album Elton John never made.  Think Elton, mixed with the Bee Gees, throw in a little Frankie Goes to Hollywood.  The Sister's version of "Comfortably Numb" is sacrilege, but really is a a scream!

The Killers (Hot Fuss) - Not the greatest I have heard but good for driving around with the top down.

Muse (Absolution) - pretty much a Radiohead-like group but "Time is Running Out" is a wicked cool song.

The Libertines (Up The Bracket) -- ROCKS!  Go buy it today.

Bright Eyes (Lifted) -- not for everyone but if angst is your thing ... (it is mine).  "Lover I Don't Have To Love" is amazing

Franz Ferdinand (self titled) - art-punk, jangly guitars, great driving music

Keane (Hopes and Fears) - In my opinion, the album of the year.  If you like Coldplay, you'll love Keane.

Damien Rice (b-sides) -- I adore this man!  Sit back, relax and enjoy!

Oh -- if only this Thread was 10 years ago when I was buying CDs by the dozen.  Now... Marriage, mortage, 3 kids in school, and all the bills that come with it.

I'm trying to remember the last CD I bought for myself.  I can't.   fists crying.gif

Muse is great. I have a couple of bootlegs of theirs that are awesome. They cam to Califonia early this year and the shows were selling out so fast I couldn't get tickets...even on eBay. Now they booked to shows in L.A. and they're already sold out. So now i play the eBay game again.   comp26.gif

I decided to do something different in addition to buying cd's...Several months ago I decided to buy vinyl for the art work....I don't have a turntable but decided to buy albums for collecting...First priority was Rush so I've bought about 8 albums over the summer....Yesterday for cd's I bought remastered Floyd (Animals and Wish You Were Here), Texas Flood by SRV and Pork Soda by Primus...for vinyl (used of course) picked up ESL and ATWAS by Rush, It's Hard by the Who (Spanish import), Who by the Numbers by The Who, Double Fantasy by John Lennon (for the historical fact that this was his final album), and Animal Magnetism by the Scorpions for it controversial (very sexist) album cover
