What was the last recording you bought? I picked up three 78s at a garage sale a while back:

Mills Brothers - You Always hurt the one you love/Till Then

James P. Johnson - I'm Going to Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter/My Fate is in Your Hands

Duke Ellington and his Famous Orchestra - Mood to be Wooed/Kissing Bug.

That's All.

From a local second hand CD place I just got a few great cds.

Pixies - Doolittle
The Beatles - 1
(Both of which I've been meaning to pick up for a long time.)

Spiritualized - Let it come down
Why oh why did I not get into this band years ago!? I love this album.

My last 2 purchases have been CD's of Fred Eaglesmith. My husband heard him on CBC radio some years ago but I didn't really get into him then. He's a bluegrass type and not really "my kind of music" but he grows on you. Has a hint of "bad boy" to him. What is it I'm attracted to, I wonder ??

mommiesdearest, one can't help but be attracted to bluegrass or anyone who can do a good job of it. I don't know what the title of my next cd purchase will be but I do know that it will be bluegrass. After all, is there anything else worth listening to?

Funny you should ask. I was about to start a thread asking the same question.

I sauntered on down to HMV last week for the first time in ages. Here's my haul:

The Strokes: Is This It
Weezer: Maladroit
Radiohead: Kid A
The Tragically Hip: In Violet Light
Daft Punk: Discovery
David Bowie: Heathen
The White Stripes: White Blood Cells

(In fact, I'm listening to The Strokes as I type this...)

I bought White Blood Cells too, and found it most excellent.

And I'm really likin' the new Bowie, too. He's still got it.

(Edited to add: I actually bought it as a birthday present for Maria, but have, er, borrowed it for transit/office listening...)

The newest addition to our house was Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. It's very Jesus and Mary Chain-y.

Tricky - Angels with Dirty Faces. That was about a month ago, though.

I like The Strokes too although I find that after a while their music all starts to sound the same. My guess is that they'll have to mix it up a bit on their next album if they want to hold on to all of that hype they've got surrounding them.

The newest Blackalicious disc, "Blazing Arrow," is really excellent. It's simply patently unfair how the "hos-and-Cristal," cartoon gangsta image of African-American life (perpetuated by record executives: how is this exploitation - used to sell to a middle-class white mallrat audience - any different than Al Jolson singing "Mammy" in blackface years back?) template has made so many no-talent rappers wealthy while such enlightening artists languish in relative obscurity. Basically every track is standout, plus it includes a cavalcade of A-list guest stars (Gil Scott Heron, Chali 2Na from J5 - my favourite MC!, Ben Harper, and show-stopping cameo verse from Saul Williams). I've often found that a glut of interlopers on hip-hop records comes off as more cloying than anything else, but it can genuinally be said that "Arrow" is "sum-of-its-parts" in the best possible way. Highly recommended - dare I say even to non hip-hop fans....?

Other CDs purchased last jaunt to Vancouver-town & over the net:

Keith Jarrett Trio: Somewhere Before
Bill Evans: Portrait in Jazz
Spitfires: Three
Hot Hot Heat: Knock Knock Knock
Greg Macpherson: Balanced On A Pin, Good Times Coming Back Again
Do Make Say Think: &Yet&Yet
East River Pipe: Shining Hours in a Can (great record - very Yo La Tengo-ish)
The Promise Ring: Wood/Water
Quasimoto: The Unseen
Coldcut: Journeys By DJ - 70 Minutes Of Madness
Roland Kirk: Introducing...
Minutemen: Post-Mersh Volume 1
Jesus & Mary Chain: 21 Singles
Nick Buzz: Circo
Fela Kuti: Beasts Of No Nation

There's actually a couple more, but they've slipped my mind...

*edited to add* Oh yes, the fairly hot off the presses Sonic Youth and Tom Waits two spanking new discs just arrived - too soon to pass judgement.

I'd heard good things about "Blazing Arrow" before. Just got it on my lunch break, and just threw it in the player. And just decided it's godhead. And I'm not really a hip-hop fan, mostly through ignorance (Mr. Scott-Heron and the late lamented Disposable Heroes aside).

Thanks, Jared!
