Ok, so let's start this record collection rundown. I am going to start at the end of the alphabet because I have yet to upload the pictures from the first half.

L-R, T-B:
1)Various Artists: Globestyle Worldwide Your Guide
2)The Who: Who's Next
3)Wings: Wings Across America
4)YES: 90125

1) This album is SO good. I got it from because they didn't want it anymore. They are missing out. I got it because the title was just so great and rhyme-y. Ooh, assonance! The standout tracks are Ofra Haza's "Yachilvi Veyachali" and Dissidenten & Lem Chaheb's "Inshalla - Kif Kif." Now let me delight you with some text from the back of the sleeve. About Haza: "String sections, samplers, electro and traditional yemenite percussion (including petrol can) .... Also available is 'Galbi' -- the first Yemenite tradtional 12" club mix??" Andddd, "What next from Globestyle? More of the same aka more of the different! Worldwide - Your Guide!"

2) I don't know where I got this one, but it was originally owned by someone named "Lee." I actually don't listen to it too frequently, but it's a solid pick with "Baba O'Riley" and "Won't Get Fooled Again," of course. The Decca label on the LP itself is way nice, very colorful.

3) This has 3 records in it. I inherited it from one of my parents. I have listened to it only once. Nothing really to say about this one.

4) This has "Owner of a Lonely Heart." It doesn't have the one YES song I actually like -- "Roundabout." I bought it at Rhino (my favorite, now-extinct record store) for 49 cents. 90125 is its original catalog number, not a zip code. If you type it into google maps, you get Palermo, Italy.

I've always though John was the snappiest dresser in The Who. The cover of Who's Next only deepens this conviction.
