Day 224

Original Soundtrack- Grease

Oy, double LP for this soundtrack. That's a little too much Grease for me.

So before you laugh when you see that I have this record, let me tell you how I came to buy it. When I first started collecting vinyl again a couple of years ago, I was obsessed with building my collection rather quickly and probably should have used better judgment on some of the records I did buy. Like this one for example. I was at Savers one day and they were selling all their records for .50 cents. I figured that's too good of a dead to pass up so I ended up buying this record along with other not really gems albums like Madness and Orleans. Like I said that was a couple of years ago and this is the first time I'm listening to this record. At least I'm watching the NBA playoffs on mute while I'm listening to it though.

I'm not intending to rip this record. It's not really bad, just too much. And hell, I always liked Grease 2 better anyways. C-O-O-L R-I-D-E-R!
All the big hits are on Side 1 too. I barely even recognize the rest of the songs on the other three sides. And no, it does not make me want to go back and watch this movie.

But I am going to keep it just in case I need to bust it out for any special occasion. I recently purchased some milk crates and am now keeping my "crap but keepers"records in them now. It really makes my bookcase full of the good stuff look really sharp now.

I'm not including a video tonight. Everyone knows Grease.
