I went to a record shop in Providence today and walked out with an absolutely mint 1964 Capitol pressing of "All Summer Long", then I found factory sealed original pressings of 15 BO (with the gatefold cover and the original $7.98 price tag from 1976) and BB 85 with the "Eleven New Studio Recordings" sticker still on the shrinkwrap.  Now for the ultimate heresy, I'm going to open them haha.  I buy them to play them.  Today was a good day.

Shame they're two of the weakest albums the band did. Now an unopened copy of Sunflower, for example. THAT'S a find.

An unopened original pressing of Sunflower would probably give me an enormous erection. :D

15 Big Ones and Love You both did many years in the remainder bins.  You can probably find both of them frequently with a corner cut off or a hole punched.

My girlfriends over the years have known to stay clear of me on days when box sets came out or reissues of the Honeys or Pacific Ocean Blue happened, or I scored big at the swap meet.  "That's not making love", they'd sob as we cleaned up the broken glass, overturned furniture, and torn clothing, and tended to the neighbors' complaints.

The copy of 15 BO that I got today did indeed have a saw mark in the top right corner.  I bought an original pressing of Love You off of eBay a while ago and it was still factory sealed, but luckily no saw marks or anything.

I've found that promo versions of KTSA can be easier to find than general market versions.  Kind of ironic. :D

My wife went to visit her mom in Cleveland this weekend and ended up going to a record store.
I have most of the Beach Boys vinyl except for Smiey Smile, Wild Honey, etc.  All the dealers there
told her that those two are the most in-demand Beach Boys vinyl.  She was able to score me
a "Wild Honey/Wind Chimes" 7" and the Kink Kronikles 2 LP set in pristine shape!  She got
"Endless Summer" for a dollar, a Dylan & a Floyd.

Oh yeah, and a Zombies 7".
