A visit to a local used CD store

A couple of months back I drove across the USA by myself, specifically from New York to Nashville to see a live wrestling event. I saw Ring of Honor: Bound by Honor at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, and was satisfied with how the event panned out. I sat in the second row.

A week later I found myself in Baton Rouge, Louisiana looking for something to do. One of my favorite hobbies is to peruse book stores and CD stores. I don't really listen to vinyl. I own about 10-12 vinyl records, and at a time I did listen to them, but I prefer CDs. There are some vinyl records I've recently become interested in, but I don't have a record player right now so those'll have to wait.

Anyway, in two visits, this is what I bought:

The Ramones - Loco Live
Bauhaus - 1979-1983 Volume One
BeeGees - Number Ones
The Breeders - Last Splash
Mountain - On Top
Morrissey - World of Morrissey

Other stuff: I almost bought Daft Punk - Random Access Memories, but skipped out on it, and when I returned it was gone. I noticed one album that caught my eye which was one of Jack Endino's band's albums, I think they're called, "Skin Yard." I bought a copy of the Armor for Sleep CD "Smile for Them" during this time also. I asked the owner if he had any Sly Stone CD's, he had some compilations (inside of a locked glass case) but I was looking for a particular one he didn't have. I also asked about Deep Purple's "Machinehead" which wasn't there.

The store was called, "The Exchange" and I recommend visiting, they have a lot of stuff you don't normally see, including B-sides, CD singles, rare albums and more. The owner was also friendly and interested in helping you find whatever it is you might be looking for.
