“I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love…”

Since Bob Dylan’s birthday just passed, Jess’ hubby’s weekly #recordshelfie was designed in his honor. Luke (Jess’ hubby) is a big Dylan fan and chose just a few favorites from their collection. ❤️🥰❤️

“Kick on the starter, give it all you’ve got…”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We know this isn’t the most popular or successful Rolling Stones’ compilation, but we still like it, and since it’s #greatesthitsthursday we thought we’d give it a spin today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Rewind (1971 - 1984)” was released in 1984 and the UK and US versions differ a bit in track listings. This is the US version, featuring such songs as “Miss You,” “Start Me Up,” “Angie,” “Beast of Burden,” and “Brown Sugar” (what’s not to like?). The CD release featured “It’s Only Rock ’n’ Roll (But I Like It),” but earlier and later compilations were more successful, so this one became less readily available, falling out of print. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you, as always, to @for.the.record.marty for hosting!!! ❤️❤️

“She's got some wild, wild life..ain't that the way you like it?”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s #newwavewednesday and the suggested theme is a US/UK battle for #vinylbattlewednesday ❤️ We had a hard time choosing two albums to battle, but we decided on Talking Heads’ “True Stories” and Eurythmics’ “Be Yourself Tonight.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“True Stories” is Talking Heads’ seventh studio album, featuring songs from David Byrne’s film, “True Stories.” The most popular track from the album is “Wild Wild Life,” but other standout tracks include “Love for Sale” and “People Like Us.” “Be Yourself Tonight” is Eurythmics’ fourth and best-selling album, featuring “Would I Lie to You” and “Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves.” We love both, ourselves, but we’re leaning toward Talking Heads in this battle. What do you think?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you to our hosts, @celerah and @vinylwife !!! ❤️❤️

“Hey I'm the king of the world...you ought to hear my song...”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Kady’s hubby has always been a big PJ Harvey fan, and we were quick converts when they first started dating and he’d make her mixed CDs, featuring songs like “Good Fortune.” Original pressings of many PJ Harvey records are hard to come by, but we came across “4-Track Demos” in the wild several years ago and didn’t really realize our luck at the time. “4-Track Demos” features many songs from “Rid of Me,” along with several unreleased tracks, such as “Hardly Wait” and “Easy.” Kady bought it as a gift, for around $25, but it now goes for much more, and we’re like many other fans, eagerly awaiting reissues of her other releases, though we know some unofficial copies are available.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Kady’s hubby had seen PJ live a few times, but they finally saw her together in 2017. Her performance was on a par with what you’d expect from the 50ft queenie, but Kady was almost 8 months pregnant at the time, so just had a miserable experience, as a result of gestational diabetes-induced hunger nausea and bad sciatica pain. 🤷‍♀️🤰Her hubby enjoyed himself, though, and that’s what mattered at the time. ❤️👸🏻🤴🏻❤️ She also performed “50ft Queenie,” which was a definite highlight. ❤️🥰❤️ We hope to actually enjoy another concert one day, and to add to our PJ collection soon! 🙏🙏

We’re spending Friday afternoon with our favorite supergroup, the Traveling Wilburys, and this pot of tea. We’re big fans of both “The Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1” and “Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3,” but our favorite tracks have always been “Congratulations” and “Handle with Care.” We’re also using this post as our entry into the #stevekoutavinylgiveaway that @stevekouta is hosting, in partnership with @thesoundofvinylau - thank you so much! ❤️🥰☕️❤️

“Don't worry baby…everything will turn out alright...”

We decided to listen to The Beach Boys’ “Super Hits” for #greatesthitsthursday today for some happy, mellow vibes. Though we’ve had this album in our collection for quite awhile, we’ve never actually played it, and we were happy to find it contains so many of our favorite Beach Boys’ tracks, including “Don’t Worry Baby,” “I Get Around,” and “Little Deuce Coupe.” Thank you to our host: @for.the.record.marty !!! 🥰❤️🥰

We’re spinning another 45 today for #covertunestuesday hosted by @vinyl.addictions.anonymous - Dinosaur Jr’s cover of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven.” We saw Dino Jr perform this live back in 2013, as part of an encore, and we’ve always loved their interpretation, especially its abrupt ending. ❤️🦖🦕❤️Kady has this tour poster framed above her TV at home, and staring at it (and our other tour posters) is just really making us miss live music. 😞🙏At least we can listen and reminisce! 🥰🦖🦕🥰

Happy First Birthday to #hairmetalmonday !!! We’re having a short two-song celebration in your honor, @diggin_n_pickin and @stevedestruct , with one of our favorite 45s - Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher/Little Dreamer.” We just love the packaging, featuring this picture of David Lee Roth in all of his pretty haired, leopard-vested glory. Thank you so much for all of the hair metal fun! ❤️🥳🥳❤️

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the strong, beautiful mothers out there, whether you have children, have step-children, have lost children, are trying to conceive children, are pregnant, have fur children, or represent a mix of all of these or something entirely different - sending love to you all! Becoming mothers and being mothers is hard work! ❤️🙏 Much love to anyone who has lost or can’t be with their mamas or family today, too! ❤️😞❤️

We’re spinning Cher’s third album in honor of our MomCher, today. As we’ve mentioned, our mom resembles Cher and this is one of her monikers. 🥰🥰This album is mostly covers, and we honestly usually pick up anything Cher we find, even if we’re unfamiliar with the tracks. “I Feel Something in the Air (Magic in the Air)” is the only track written by Sonny Bono.❤️🥰❤️

We bought this German pressing of J Mascis + The Fog’s “More Light” from @lemonjimmy several months ago and haven’t played it nearly enough since then. It made for a perfect streaming soundtrack for sitting (inflatable) poolside while the babe floated around, and now we’re giving the record a spin while we do our weekly chores.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“More Light” was J Mascis + The Fog’s debut album, released in 2000, and though it’s mostly considered a solo record, Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine) and Robert Pollard (GBV) are also featured. We’ve shared our love for all things J pretty often, so we were so happy to add this one to our collection - thank you so much to @lemonjimmy ❤️❤️ Our favorites on this one include “Back Before You Go,” “Sameday,” and the title track. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“I try and comprehend you, but I got a dyslexic heart...”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We were inspired to listen to some Paul Westerberg classics after seeing several of the PW-themed posts @1_800_rent_a_cd has shared over the last couple of weeks. Since it’s #fortyfivefriday we’re starting with this single of “Dyslexic Heart,” which served as our (and the world’s) introduction to Paul’s solo work. The B-side is the Screaming Trees’ “Nearly Lost You.” 💗💗

“Makes no difference what group I'm in…I am everyday people...”

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s another #greatesthitsthursday and we thought we’d play a little funk to try to get out of our funk, which has mostly included not spinning any records, not taking photos of the ones we do spin, or taking photos and not feeling up to posting them. 😔🤦🏻‍♀️😔 Sly & The Family Stone’s “Greatest Hits” was released in 1970 and includes most of our favorite tracks, including “Everyday People,” “Hot Fun in the Summertime,” and “I Want to Take You Higher.” Thank you to our host: @for.the.record.marty 🥰❤️🥰

“And I'll get on my knees and pray we don't get fooled again...”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve been watching and/or listening to a lot of John Rzeznik’s short stairwell concerts that he’s been recording for various radio stations and causes recently, and we listened to his interview with Matt Pinfield for We Are Hear “On the Air” – “In A Lonely Place” late yesterday, in which they discussed some influential albums in his life. The Who’s “Who’s Next” was included, and we’ve had “Won’t Get Fooled Again” in our heads ever since, so we thought we’d give this compilation a spin today, in honor of #greatesthitsthursday (and also as a “substitute,” because we sadly don’t own “Who’s Next” yet). “Who’s Greatest Hits” also features the original single version of “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It has sometimes been hard to find the light in the darkness that is this pandemic, but hour and a half long conversations about music are certainly helpful, so we’re so grateful for programs like “In A Lonely Place,” and also for days that celebrate the greatness of greatest hits collections, which Matt and John also touched on during their interview. Thanks to both of them, and thanks so much to our #greatesthitsthursday host @for.the.record.marty !!! 🥰❤️🥰

“We are vain and we are blind…I hate people when they're not polite...”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s #newwavewednesday and it coincides with day 22 of the #legendaryvinylchallenge hosted by @celerah and @dougfunnie666 - the theme is “‘Thank you Linus’: an album someone gave you when you needed it or that you bought after too many drinks.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Kady’s hubby bought her “Talking Heads: 77” for her birthday, because it was one she didn’t yet have in her collection and very much needed. ❤️😂The band’s debut established their arty, new wave sound and garnered the well-known single “Psycho Killer,” along with “Pulled Up” and “Uh-Oh, Love Comes to Town.”

“Cause I love you, baby, that's no lie...I love you more than I did when you were mine...”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve been thinking a lot about Prince today, on the fourth anniversary of his passing. 🙏💜🙏When we think of him, we think of a jumble of memories, all seemingly unrelated, really, except for him. We’re not even really sure when we became Prince fans - maybe in eighth grade or in high school? - he’s just an artist who’s always been there for us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We were lucky enough to see him during his Forum residency several years ago, and we were so excited, even buying purple boas to wear, naturally. We didn’t have the best seats in the world, but we felt so grateful to witness one of our musical heroes in action, as he performed medleys of hits, and we were only slightly disappointed when he ended his set early, riding off on a bicycle, in true Prince fashion.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A few years later, on the same day that Prince passed away, Kady found out that she was pregnant. Jess ordered her a Prince onesie that same day, to commemorate the both sad and happy occasion, but Kady had a miscarriage just a few weeks later, and ended up saving it and thinking that two of her loves were now up in heaven. 🙏🙏
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When Johnnie, Kady’s rainbow baby, was born a year later, she was so excited to have her wear the onesie, in memory of her older brother/sister and the one and only Purple Majesty. Johnnie wore it on New Year’s Day, 2018, and then never again, but we now have special memories of her sweet face in purple, too, and we’ll some day explain to her just how special those photos of her are to us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now, we think of Prince even more fondly whenever we play one of his records. We think of him riding off on his bicycle, and we think of Kady’s first babe, and what he/she might have looked like. Both memories make us happy and sad, but we’re nonetheless thankful to have them, just as we’re thankful to have countless others set to his music. We’ll be spinning some of our favorites today, in honor of him, our loss, and the world’s loss. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Prince, forever. 🙏💜🌈💜🙏

We’ve missed participating in #hairmetalmonday these last few weeks, so we decided to give this Scorpions’ classic a spin today, made easier by the fact that we’ve been doing some spring/quarantine cleaning and have finally alphabetized our records! Doesn’t it look so pretty among the other “S” records, still in its protective sleeve, lol?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Animal Magnetism” was released in 1980 and features such tracks as “Lady Starlight,” “Make It Real,” and “The Zoo.” Thanks so much to the Steves @diggin_n_pickin and @stevedestruct for hosting!
