Isn't there like an EP or something of that nature from "Now What?!" or demos? Is there bonus tracks on the LP version?

There is a "Deluxe Gold Edition" that contains a few bonus tracks (instrumental mixes) and also contains an additional live concert CD. The version of the LP I bought doesn't contain any bonus tracks.

Very good, but short! I have not been disappointed by any of the Brubeck albums that I have bought.

I watched these folks playing at the New Orleans Jazz Fest a few weeks ago and it blew me away. Very raw, stripped down blues rock with a big R&B influence. It's good to see a band like this in this day and age.

I had heard of that band but for some reason it didn't pique my interest but your description of them makes me wanna check them out now.

I just snagged Santana-Corazon [Deluxe Edition] finally.

At Dimple on Vinyl:
Small Faces: Playmates
Loudness: Lighting Strikes

Today at GW, I found a couple of 78 books; One filled with Nat King Cole(and Trio) stuff the other had assorted not so interesting things, buuuut two Dave Brubeck Trio 78s. For $2 each book, I had to get them. Came to about 20 cents for each disc.

I haven't bought a single new release so far in 2014. Probably won't change until the new Opeth comes out in August.

Body Count was my first "new" release of '14...been a slow yearr thus far. But later in the Summer there will be new stuff from Overkill, Accept, KIX and Ace Frehley.

I've listened to a few new releases on Spotify, but nothing has hit me to the point where I wanted to run out and grab it. Really like the new Triptykon album but the reason I haven't picked it up is because I need to be in a specific mood for it and that mood hasn't been very common of late.

I finally have had some money to make some purchases but am overwhelmed. I'm having a difficult time picking up newer releases simply because my brain is telling me, "you can listen to it on Spotify." I think I've gotten to this point where I'm used to Spotify so much that it's been easier not to make big purchases but focus on collecting (ie older, classic music) for collecting's sake. It's an awkward stage, and I'm still trying to figure it out. Anyway:

Helstar - Nosferatu
Hirax - Not Dead Yet +1

.25 ea from Rasputin:
Biohazard - State of the World Address
Saigon Kick - Water
Faith No More - Angel Dust
Varga - Prototype
Tom Petty - Into the Great Wide Open
Coheed & Cambria - In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3
Drivin-N-Cryin - Smoke
Live - Secret Samadhi
World Party - Goodbye Jumbo
Rolling Stones - Steel Wheels
Therapy? Hats Off to the Insane (EP, I believe?)
40 Grit - Heads (blind buy)
Dead Poetic - New Medicines

I stopped buying much almost immediately after I discovered Spotify, I was in the initial group of users when it was still in beta test mode. Now I tend to either buy audiophile stuff like blu-ray releases or used LPs. But I really only hit the record stores once every couple months, for the most part I'm content with the iTunes collection I've built up over the years and the rest I stream on Spotify or Prime Music.

Savatage - Sirens & The Dungeons Are Calling Sessions (both the album an EP culled together as originally intended)

By far the worst digipak packaging I've ever come across. Cheap, thin cardboard stock, poorly written liner notes (by Jon, of all people!) shoved inside a small inner crack, and the lettering on the spine is upside down, which IMO is the worst offender. Music is great, but I should've spent the extra money on the standalone albums and their first pressings.

By far the best Savatage material.
