I think I have that Marcia Ball on CD but can't think where it possibly can be. 

I wish that Blue House had a vinyl release.   I'm tempted to pull a Pepe and try to find a clean cassette.

If you like The Jayhawks you should like Blue Rodeo.   They are a Canadian band well regarded there but hardly known at all here.   My favorite album of theirs is from the mid 90s and was only issued on CD.   I recently found out that there was a small Canadian only pressing done in 2012.   I was lucky enough to find one at a reasonable cost.   It sounds wonderful.

Odd one at GW today. The recent 180 Gram reissue of Elvis Costello Armed Forces. But it didn't have the jacket, just the record in the inner. Both were still in pretty good shape given how I found them. Who donates a recent reissue and who does so without the jacket? I'm picturing an eviction situation.   Sounds pretty good.   A VG+ at least, better than you would expect given the circumstances.

Nilsson Schmilsson again.   I seem to be coming to that one a lot lately.   It's just so great.

Which one?   The Stevie?   Nilsson?   Both of the above albums are Japanese imports on JVC Supervinyl and both are stellar.   Let me know which one you are referring to and I'll be sure to bring it to the next get-together so you can take it for a test drive.

Sounds that biopic of his "who is Harry Nilsson and why is everybody talkin about him?"
Great view into the excesses of the LA record business of the 70s.

"The Lottery Song" from the second LP is a personal favorite.

Disc 1 of the Mosaic Complete Django Reinhardt and Hot Club box set.

Some sublime guitar for grey day.  Relaxing after a day doing tax returns.
