I forgot, until today’s house-cleaning efforts reminded me, that I was going to publish a list of all the vinyl records that I had to throw out because of the Great Mold Invasion. Here is the list. I can’t believe I fitted all that into one plastic file crate; if the mold hadn’t got them maybe warping from compression would have. Most of these are hopefully still available in some form or other, at least the ones I have bolded which are losses I particularly regret. (Opinions on the dreadfulness of my musical tastes of previous decades will be ignored.)
Update, much later: some of the bands on my list are so obscure I was sure no one would remember who they were. Sleep of Reason was a local Miami band; later Oscar Herrera would join Black Tape For a Blue Girl, which went on to somewhat more fame (of the indie-goth variety). It looks like Sleep of Reason’s work is still available. $1.98? Of course, there’s a $4.00 shipping/handling fee, which brings the cost up to the average retail store clearance bin price. I think I can afford that. Click.
