Not much here that I didn't already own on CD, but I'm in the process of trying to find best-sounding versions of the albums I like and a lot of the time for 60s-80s artists, this means original vinyl.
Some finds I've been playing for the last day:
Steely Dan - Pretzel Logic (Columbia House Club edition).
I never owned any Steely Dan on CD, but did already have an original Pretzel Logic (ABC label). However this one looked practically unplayed, so I got it anyway. It's tough to find Steely Dan originals (apart from Gaucho) in really nice shape for less than $20 these days, if you can believe. Hipsters I guess. Anyway, despite the rep of club editions sounding worse than the "real" ones, this one sounds a little better than my original. Possibly, it just had been played less. It's tough to find apples to apples comparisons with used vinyl.
The Cars - st
Unlike Steely Dan, original Cars albums in great shape don't command premium prices, but finding this particular one in near-perfect shape is pretty rare so seeing one for only $7 got me to bite. The '80s CD of this - which I own - doesn't sound bad at all, and I'm not sure this is an improvement yet. But it's a classic album cover and now I'm happy to have it in LP form.
Bob Seger - Night Moves
I've never owned a Bob Seger album in any format. I don't think I've ever played a Bob Seger album front-to-back, even on Youtube out of curiosity. Bob Seger is not anybody who I ever had much interest in - I just lumped it in with .38 Special, Eddie Money and others of that ilk; some kind of bloated white-bread version of something that would be in better hands with guys with more soul. But I've seen this one appear on lists and such, and this was in really good shape and only $5. So I took a flyer. I like it more than I thought I would.
Genesis - Duke
I already have this album in every other format, and it's never sounded very good. The cassette mostly sounds like crap, the '90s US CD is pretty loud, boomy and no-noised, and I never got into the '00s remixes (which is the only way you can buy Genesis albums nowdays, believe it or not). I was not in the market for another version of Duke, but I've never seen one this pristine, either. I know that, due to the length, the chances of it sounding good weren't great. And, sadly, it doesn't. But it's nice to hear the album without the boominess. I guess it's cool to have an original in very nice shape, if nothing else.
Frank Zappa - You Are What You Is
Original Zappa albums in great shape are out there and don't break the bank like some of the other major classic rock artists. There's a utility in getting Zappa on vinyl (well, pre-2012/2013, anyway) because the CDs all had issues - remixed parts or screw-ups. I've been acquiring Zappa on vinyl for about 10 years now, getting minty copies of the albums I most like when I see them.
St. Vincent - Daddy's Home
I'm liking it! I think I prefer it to Masseduction.
