Tales from the Dollar Bin

A blog I read somewhat regularly -- Lair of the Dork Horde -- features regular posts under the title "Tales From the 25cent Bin." Essentially, these posts showcase this blogger's most recent trip to a comic book store's quarter bins. Pretty simple, really.

I had the day off of work today and one of my favorite day-off activities is digging through the boxes of dollar records at a local record store. So after a gut-bomb of a lunch at Meatheads, I spent about a half-hour knee-deep in musty vinyl.

Stealing a page from the Dorke Horde's book, I present to you the product of today's crate digging...arranged in order of increasing awesomeness.

Waylon Jennings - Greatest Hits



Big deal. I know. I grew up on Waylon and Willie and own a pretty good amount of their music. Even so, for a buck, I can never pass on Waylon.

Miami Vice Soundtrack



Say what you will, this soundtrack is amazing. At the very least, Melle Mel's Vice is worth a buck.

Bob McGrath - Sings for All the Boys and Girls



You know Bob. He's been on Sesame Street for years. He plays Bob.

John Schneider - White Christmas



Bo Duke is singing Christmas carols at my house this year. Yee haw.

Bootsy Collins - The One Giveth, The Count Taketh Away



Forget the other four I bought. This is all I've listened to all afternoon. It's Bootsy! If you've never given him a listen, I suggest you take care of that right now.

So, yeah. Five dollars well spent.

And that picture on the cover doesn't do justice to the sweater he's wearing!

I am looking for John's work on the movie Eddie Macon's run. I am not sure if he ever recorded it though.

I was just joking over at UnderScoopFire today that my interracial porn name would be Soul Cakes (don't ask), and Bootsy Collins music is pretty much the soundtrack I had in mind for it.

John Schnieder looks strangely like John Travolta on that album!
