"Raunchy" - Bill Justice

Just as the album cover is only a bit raunchy on the Sun Records release, this 'slideshow' is good clean fun.

Heavy Metal - Motion Picture Soundtrack

Picked this one up (and not dirty at all, but in very, very clean condition!) a little while back.

If you remember the days when FM radio stations were mixing equal parts AOR and New Wave into their rock music formats, this makes for a heck of a soundtrack!

I found this one a few months back and was very excited to find it, as the same L.P. has slipped through my fingers just as often as Les Baxter's "Jewels of the Sea"!*  This one is in shrink and in very nice shape as well, so that's a bonus, especially since most of the official James Bond soundtrack L.P.s are in very rough shape indeed.

The arrangement to the title track here is a bit of an "everything, including the kitchen sink!" arrangement, but it is nonetheless very fun and full-feature without being over-done.

Thanks (and kudos) to uploader "Chalyman77" for providing this clear transfer for the Tube-surfers.
* Only once for each of these L.P.s, but darned if it didn't sting when I realized what I had later!

Azuma "Treasure Chest"

The lead track from Mr. Azuma's self-titled "Azuma" L.P.; released in the U.S. in 1987 on Private Records.

I found this LP years and years ago now, and it is still amongst the cleanest pieces of vinyl that I've ever found in the wild!  And while I'm not a very big fan of New Age music, this track exemplifies the sound of the tight, digital editing and glossy production of the late 1980s era.
