^^ Sounds great , geekfreak! I've bought a couple more Anne Rice books which I've been meaning to read.

That Witching Hour trilogy was a romp! I saw her at a library interview / Q&A in Toronto. She's tiny, but fierce. Lovely lady with a fiery moral compass and creativity; dangerous combination, that. She also has that rare ability to be unflappably polite but uncompromisingly honest. Huge respect.

I've had this for a long time and love it but revisit it only now and again. It's a bit... spooky or something, I can't put my finger on it (and I don't mean the whole crossroads legend thing). When I do listen, I'm always in awe about how he does it; just sounds like two guitars sometimes. Maybe for pro guitarists this is an easy answer, but it's a mystery to me, and I like that there's something to discover. Look at those hands, though. Tree branch fingers make for fret coverage mere mortals only dream of. 

There is another compilation that has been released, an apparently cleaner remaster with a new bio and photos to commemorate Robert Johnson's 100th birthday:

The Complete Recordings (The Centennial Collection)

There's also a limited vinyl edition which if you can find it now will cost you something that starts in the low four digits. I'd love to get my hands on this and would be tempted to steal it if I saw it on someone's shelf but would ultimately not do it because, well, it's just not the way. But then I'd think about having seen it and what it would be like to have it :D. Check out the comments in the review section, some good insights.

This arrived via Fedex, today!!! :hurrah:I was really on the fence about this particular album (what with people warning me about the 80's synth + guitar sound, blah blah blah), but after listening to songs like Distant Early WarningRed Sector A, Afterimage, The Enemy Within and Between The Wheels, I knew that I just had to have this album in my collection! Oh and as a Rush fan, I would gladly recommend this album to even the most casual fan! B)

T4E is a good choice.

Indeed it is! :) I'm also purchasing Vapor Trails. That album (surprisingly) had been marked down by as much as 60% of its original price, for a limited time, with one of my regular online retailers and I've placed an order for it and man, am I stoked!! :D

I was actually supposed to purchase two fantastic albums by Tool  : Undertow and Aenima, but fate had other plans. 

After waiting for almost three weeks, I suddenly got an email from the concerned seller, telling me that his sales partner in the U.S had inventory issues! :wall:

I was pretty disappointed and then I came across the deal of a lifetime! At least it seemed that way to me! 7 albums for the price of 1! These albums were by my favourite band of all time!! :yay: 

I was a young girl, I couldn't resist ;)

Cool classic video games haul there, Sath! I remember playing The Legend of Zelda as a kid! :D 

Believe it or not, I had never played the original Zelda until about a year ago, when I first got back into retro games! As a kid, my intro to Zelda was the polarizing Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link. (Which I loved, and still do!) 

Now that I'm getting the Game Boy version (Link's Awakening) and my brother made me play Ocarina of Time, I've just about played every old-school Zelda, except Majora's Mask, which looks super weird to me. (Not really good weird, either) :P

Some albums are just too fuckin' hard to find! Sure there are stores like Itunes, blah, blah, blah, BUT there is no feeling like having the satisfaction of holding the physical album in your hands, examining the liner notes, art work, etc.!

I had to wait for nearly 6 long years to get my hands on these!
