This list has something for everyone. Classics and new, experimental and pop, electronic and analog, fast cars — it’s all here, and if you were paying attention when some of this came out, you probably have a copy by now. The release that stands out to me here the most, other than the undefeatable Tracy Chapman, is the Glass Bead Games reissue.
Back in the day, when I was scraping yard sales and dollar bins to make ends meet, I found that and another Strata East release in super clean condition at a yard sale in a big box of free records. That month I made rent. Maybe you won’t after viewing this list, though. Be cautious!
