Easter 2011 has come and gone. My Lenten promise was not to buy any new music recordings. If you know me at all, I trust you’ll agree that was not an easy 40 day sacrifice for me. I buy 70+ recordings a year between CD, vinyl and digital download I was only able to honor Record Store Day 2011 in principle, not practice. This was the biggest Record Store Day yet!
I am looking at my short list for what recording I should buy first. My short list of recordings includes:
- Paul Simon – So Beautiful or So What? (We are scheduled to see him at MGM Foxwoods on May 29)
- Foo Fighters – Wasting Light (Heard Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins on the Howard Stern Show)
- Radiohead – King of Limbs
- Steve Earle – I’ll Never Get Out of this World Alive (Available tomorrow April 26th, which is when I am hoping to listen to it on Zune).
- Ray Davies – See My Friends
- Paul Simon, Foo Fighters Added to 2011 iTunes Festival (spinner.com)
