    So many super fine moments on this record, and it sounds excellent.

    Day 11 - Essential

    I wouldn't dare say any one album is essential to everyone. Herbie Hancock - Head Hunters is my essential record. 'Chameleon' is my go to song to get any nasty earworm songs out of my head.

    Day 12 - You Can Look Right Through Me

    The record does have alternating clear, blue, clear, which is cool and looks like a propeller and you can look through it. "Sea" is in the name of the band. The girl on the cover is looking right through to you, as well. I did some creative flash photography to hide some things, though. If you're really interested, I posted this album a few times before in other threads a while back.

    Sea At Last - Atlas

    - LookRight Through Me - Play a translucent record. Any color will do, as long as you can see right through it


    F#&k it.. Going with Moby for this one ;) first spin right now, thus far sounds great! First VMP in many months not pressed at GZ! But sounds great to my ears (2 songs in)

    Moby - Play (January 2018, VMP)

    Sorry, I'm keeping this one. It is probably my favorite looking record, and the band is great, too! I have Fort Vine anyway and it is a pretty cool album, too.

    Day 13: First Used

    The Beatles - White Album

    Flea market find for $5 back in 2003 maybe? Also scooped up Pink Floyd's "The Wall" at the same time.

    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
    Everyone has a copy of this right? I had an old beater copy until recently when I got the 2016 remaster.

    I should be getting this in the mail today from the PIF thread. It's the standard black though.

    January 13th - 1st Used Album

    It's not the first record I bought used, but it's the first one I got from a bin and not discogs. I don't much enjoy going bin diving. My wife, on the other hand, walks up to me all the time with $.50-$3.00 finds. The last one was Lily Tomlin doing stand-up.

    Anyhauser, think I paid $3 for this.

    That's a sick PIF pickup. Such a quality album... I always forget how good it is until I put it on.

    Day 13: 1st USED Record

    I actually played the first used record I ever got (“Diamond Life” by Sade) in this challenge a few days ago. So here’s another one of the first used records I ever got!
