    Marriage does that to a man.... :P

    Can blame it on whatever the musical equivalent to Beer Goggles is...

    Fair Warning was the first one I got as it just came out. I scooped it the first week or so at A&A Records & Tapes in Coquitlam Center.

    It was very shortly before the show they announced the 81 VH show at the Ted Nugent concert & got tickets the first day. I don't think the album was out when the tickets went on sale. Seem to recall only a month or so listening to the new album before the show.

    I think this is part of the reason Fair Warning is so special to me. Somehow accidently played the wrong side first & Unchained was the first tune I heard. Holy cow!!

    Subsequently & I guess still to this day was always confused why that album didn't score a big hit. At the time was expecting it to bust loose anytime in a big way but ultimatley never did.

    That actually happened to me for two other huge albums, before I could afford much I had friends copy Back in Black and Pyromania for me on cassette (the original file sharing!). Both of them were labeled backwards where side 1 became side 2. I had those for probably a couple years before I bought my first real copies and to this day it sounds weird to hear the albums start differently.

    Those were the days when you had to buy it if you wanted to hear the songs on the day of release...

    Didn't the cassette liner notes have an image that was later replace? A blackboard or something?

    A blackboard with a phone number that people kept calling, as I recall.

    Somehow missed the boat on the CD LONGBOX's.....

    Had Zep Houses Of The Holy Longbox.....but unbeknownst to me never scooped any of the VH longbox's.....

    & no idea how that's even possible....

    In 88 is when I distinctly remember getting my first CD Player.....you'd think the first 6 VH albums would've been amongst the first cds I scooped.....

    But no recollection at all of ever buying the VH cds for the first time....

    Of course I did buy them....still have them now....but NO freakin longboxes....????? Ugh....

    Loved the smell of new cassettes in the 80s.
