The plan was to start working my way through my playlists of the late 70's, and then immerse myself into the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal explosion around 1980. I ended up having so much fun just hanging out in 1977, and really appreciating some of the albums that were released that year, that I decided that the NWOBHM could wait, and I started picking up some vinyl for albums that I was currently obsessing over.
I love early Rush, but I don't usually venture past the 2112 album from 1976, so it was a nice surprise to finally discover and appreciate A Farewell To Kings. Man, right alongside Nutz and Quartz, I was spinning these songs day after day.
Don't you love it when an obsession doesn't break the bank? An easy score under $10, which makes you wonder why people are dropping $30 on the reissues from a couple years ago.
