Recent music purchases

I love new music, and there's a lot of new acts to enjoy, but lately my tastes ave turned to nostalgia. Back when I first started buying music to a heavy degree, one only had two choices, vinyl or cassette. This was back in the days of poofy hair, parachute pants, and L.A. Gear tennis shoes. (The mid to late 80's for any of you born after 1990.) Just like most of you, my music collection grew in ernest during junior high and high school. Needless to say I spen large amounts of my available cash on cassettes and 12" singles from 1986 through about 1995 (the rest was spent on comic books). By that time I had given into CDs as a viable music media, but that was only for new purchases. It's only been in the last two years though that I have actively looked to replace my aging tape collection. Here's a rundown of some of those purchases over the last couple of months:

Men Without Hats - Pop Goes the World 1987
Men Without Hats - the 21st Century 1989
Cause & Effect - Trip 1994
Cause & Effect - Another Minute 1991
Depeche Mode - Violator (Remastered) 1990
Depeche Mode - Speak & Spell (Remastered) 1981
Depeche Mode - Music for the Masses (Remastered) 1987
Electronic - Electronic 1991
Oingo Boingo - Only a Lad 1981
Oingo Boingo - Nothing to Fear 1982
Camoflage - Voices & Images 1988
Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures 1979
Pet Shop Boys - Disco 1986
Yes - Union 1991
The Thompson Twins - Queer 1991
Recoil - Bloodline 1992
Enigma- MCMXC A.D. 1990

    Such a good acquisition. I wish I'd been smarter in a way when I was younger - I have everything on three formats now, and it's darn annoying! Had only I asked for a cd player though they were expensive instead of a deck to spin my records. A foolish child I was! Recently, I've realized some of the things I taped from the radio aren't actually available on cd yet (or ever maybe) and I've been doing intricate tape splicing to sort out the damaged treasures.
