Yeah, those were expensive. And remember how expensive the Dub Room cassette was in '85?


Holy cow! Please tell me I didn't pay that for the copy that's sitting at the bottom of my closet.

I guess I did. I remember buying a bunch of that stuff at once and it arrived in a big box. I was in Zappa heaven. I also remember buying a few import VHS concerts from Japan at about that time that went for about $100.00 a pop. The concerts were Alcatrazz (with Steve Vai), a Stevie Ray Vaughan concert where he's smoking a pipe while he's playing, a Gary Moore concert/documentary, and I think an Yngwie Malmsteen concert. Where did I get all that money? I guess not having any responsibilities at the time helped.

Next clue....

This band formed in the 80s and broke up in 1989. But, they came back in the early 2000s and are still around. They will be touring soon with another band which includes the same person as their front man. The close-up is from the poster that came with the album.

Next clue...

This close-up is from the sleeve of this solo artist's second album. The early 70s album's title is the same as his first album's title, with a few more words added.

Based solely on your clues I will say that it's Camper Van Beethoven. I'm more of a Cracker guy myself.

Mr X-Indeed from The Residents' "God in 3 Persons". My wife's favourite Residents' album. In fact, the only Residents' album she likes. I've heard rumours they're going to tour it in the near future.

I thought #40 looked familiar, and it turned out to be an album I own, the s/t debut by the band Earwax Control. I don't know if many people outside Chicago would have heard of this one.

Ohmagawd, I've been puzzling over that one since the clue on page 2, a year and a half ago. Turns out to be something I've never heard of! Well spotted, Pat!

Awesome! I got that album in the 80s and have occasionally seen shows around Chicago with Paul Wertico in the band. Somewhere around 2000 I ran sound for a show and told him I had that album. He shook his head and was surprised anyone still knew about it, hahaha.

I took some drum lessons from him around 2000 and around that time found a copy of the LP at the Jazz Record Mart that had probably been sitting there for years.
