You can have a look at your order history. Perhaps people who bought Nile also bought Barbara Streisand?

14-01-2003, 13:33:43
Perhaps they thought "Jesus, if this guy's prepared to pay money for Nile maybe he'll literally buy anything"

Bright Eyes has gotten well good reviews in Sweden. I don't get why, 'cause it's really boring 90s-sounding lo-fi.

Hammer Party [IMPORT] ~ Big Black
Rusty ~ Rodan
Tweez [IMPORT] ~ Slint
20 Years of Dischord [ENHANCED] [BOX SET] ~ Various Artists
Mission of Burma ~ Mission Of Burma
Double Nickels on the Dime ~ Minutemen

Slow Riot for New Zero Kanada [EP] ~ Godspeed You Black Emperor

Not too sure about the Husker Dü record, and I've not even heard of Rodan or Silver Mt. Zion - but the rest of them seem pretty reasonable.

I'm disappointed. I ordered some stuff for Finn Willi and was hoping of a more bizarre collection. And the only album I own from that list is Fehlfarben-live and it sucks

Over night it changed the Bill Withers collection (yes please!) to a posthumous Otis Redding release I've already got basically everything off (no thanks!). Suspicious.

Cancelling that and the supposedly crap Captain Beefheart bootleg, I get Bill Withers back and, for some reason, a CD of John Lee Hooker recordings.

Page 2 gets a bit more (I hate this word) eclectic, consisting of everything from Tift Merritt to Ward 21 and The Fugs. I shall continue to go through the list until something I hate passionately appears... Janis Joplin is quite close but no Cigar.

Having done a bit of mixing and rating I now have 6 red hot chilli peppers albums on my list.
