As you might imagine, now that the new update is here my "Project 3000" magic number is higher than the three it was last week.
Of the now-current top 3000 albums, I am missing 12.
That'll be reduced to 10 soon enough, as my copy of CONCERTO POUR DETRAQUES has been shipped (thanks again, Stephan) and I'm also awaiting a copy of Max Tundra's MASTERED BY GUY AT THE EXCHANGE, which I ordered on a gamble after it scored so highly on the Porcys EOD list.
The remaining 10:
2188 Supreme NTM, PARIS SOUS LE BOMBES
2539 Marquis de Sade, RUE DE SIAM
2840 Smokey Robinson, WARM THOUGHTS
2896 The Fugs, TENDERNESS JUNCTION
2931 Circulatory System, CIRCULATORY SYSTEM
2967 The Fleshtones, ROMAN GODS
2973 Radio Dept., LESSER MATTERS
2974 The Cure, BLOODFLOWERS
2979 Pet Shop Boys, BILINGUAL
2984 Money Mark, PUSH THE BUTTON
Now that WARM THOUGHTS is almost certainly coming out within the next few months as part of Hip-O Select's solo Smokey 2-for-1 reissue series (thanks again, Daniel), and - believe it or not - TENDERNESS JUNCTION is finally being released for the first time on CD this Tuesday (!!), the one I expect to have the hardest time finding is ROMAN GODS, which has apparently never been released on CD at all.
My biggest recent coup, which has paid off with the album's return to the top 3000, is T Bone Burnett's PROOF THROUGH THE NIGHT, which has only seen the light of CD day as part of a 2007 limited-edition issue (5000 copies) in a 2-disc set with Burnett's TRAP DOOR and BEYOND THE TRAP DOOR EP's. Somehow, someone was willing to part with their copy on Amazon for a more-than-reasonable price, and somehow I was lucky enough to snag it.
You don't own The Cure - Bloodflowers? Seriously?
Harold, where do you buy most of your CDs? Is it through the internet, or do you have a local music store around you that you go to for the latest records? (If you do, they sure must appreciate your business!)
Also, will you be rearranging your CDs with the new update? That must take awhile...
I can't imagine finding Bloodflowers of Bilingual will be hard to find.
