tower rocks

After some lunch at Maggiano's Corner Bakery I finally got a chance to visit the new improved spacious ostentatious awesome Tower Records store in Buckhead. Truly a store for people with eclectic taste and a penchant for used CDs (the latter being a rather general characteristic -- CDs are overpriced anyways...). Got myself a good little haul:

* Blaxpoitation 4: Harlem Hustle {a 2 CD compilation of soul, funk and groove tracks from the likes of The Temptations, Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Earth Wind and Fire, Herbie Hancock, Marvin Gaye and The Delfonics}

* The Beatles/Anthology 2: The best pick of the lot. Finding this in the used CD bin is a godsend. The original item is priced high enough to be unaffordable and the prices on eBay skyrocket to absurdity. If only Volume III would appear ...

* Swaraj: Purchased purely on instinct, this is a compilation of South Asian club/DJ mixes including a remix of Maye ni Maye from Hum Aapke Hain Koun.... My favourite track is Path of the Blazing Sarona by Ravi Harris -- a nice mix of funk bass and interesting percussion patterns. {listing}
