I went to the Exchange yesterday and loaded up on some new music.

Dire Straits-

Brothers In Arms
Dire Straits
On Every Street
On the Night

Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon (1992 remaster)

I think I did pretty well. All of the Dire straits albums seem to be the original CD releases. They all sound beautiful.

I just placed the single largest music order I have ever the tune of about $1,000, and all of it on CD. The prior record was about $550 and it was all on audiophile vinyl.

Some of these were opportunistic buys of OOP boxed sets that I missed out on, others were mainly to fill gaps in my music library. It's all jazz.

This better tide me over for a while.

Well, my wife just got a brand new car so after doing that for her I told her I was going splurge on some music. Oh...and I also bought a pair of Grado GS1000s (shsssh...let's keep that one to ourselves

I'm just doing my part to stimulate the economy.

jsaliga, wow man, that order takes the biscuit! If you have the money though, I think it's fantastic to outlay on such an amount of music. Happy listening

Few more to round off my Zappa exploits (trying to get my hands on all of his music pre-Tinseltown Rebellion/1980's onwards, released during his lifetime or posthumously, studio or live, to get to grips with all his music up until that period):

Mothers of Invention/Frank Zappa- Playground Psychotics
Frank Zappa- You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol. 2
