I'm currently working on a complete Chilliwack LP collection... :mrgreen:

We went to a really cool shop in Orillia and the owner talked my ear off about Bruce Cockburn.
I never heard of him til I moved here in the late 80s. All the peacenik hippie types loved him.
Which is funny because he's such a miserable downer.
I have to confess that I felt pressured to purchase a copy of Cockburn's "Dancing in the Dragon's Jaws" LP because the shop owner kept talking about it. He claimed it was a classic Canadian album and actually pulled out a copy and handed it to me. The guy was really nice and it was only $5 Canadian so I bought it. I'm thinking I'll never probably listen to it - but hey - I guess it can always be a reminder about our trip to Orillia, Ontario!
Flex did the same to me when I visited his old music store.

And $5 Canadian does that mean he paid you to take it?
I think so... :mrgreen:

I also think if I would have said no that he probably would have just given me the LP for free. He was adamant that I hear it.

Had you known what you were getting yourself into, you could have been armed with a copy of CtC as part of a swap. Let that be a lesson to us all, carry around a copy of CtC for emergencies.

I thought all copies had been destroyed. Didn't you all get the memo? I've done my part.

I don't have any physical product—but at various times I've had it on cassette, vinyl, and cd; tho only the cassette was purchased new—but I think I have, like, five different versions of the album, including Marky's stuff, a Japanese edition, etc. It's beyond perverse.

Or a hundred years ahead, and predicts total social and cultural collapse.

I must have heard ABBA's Chiquitita and Fernando hundreds of times and to this day it still takes me to the vocals to come in to work out what song it is. They're not even that similar, anyone else see it?

I heard the lead off single yesterday and quite liked it. Typical sound but it's got a tune.

PiL would be mine, too, but in a roundabout way. Album to Sex Pistols to Second Edition and This Is What You Want.
