TCCDM Pulls One Out..."This Is Spinal Tap" Stk - Spinal Tap (1984)

"This Is Spinal Tap" - Spinal Tap (1984)
(Hard rock, Psych rock, Folk rock, Garage rock)

I've never met anyone who hasn't seen and loved this movie.  The mockumentary is perfect in every way.  As is the music from the band...Spinal Tap.  The evolution of the band's look and sound is so spot-on and pins the tail of numerous bands that shall remain nameless.  The album soundtrack had been on my want list for a long time, though I was never actively seeking it out.  I knew one would show up somewhere and for a good price...and it did.

I found a nice copy while visiting a Hutchinson Record Swap a while back.  This particular dealer never brings very many records, but what he has is usually intriguing and always at a more than fair price.  My copy had $7 on it and when I went to pay, the dealer asked me for $5.00.  I pick up something from this guy every time I see his table.

"This Is Spinal Tap" (back)

Favorite deep tracks are "Rock And Roll Creation" and "Stonehenge."  I don't play this record often, but I'm glad I own it.  As well as the "This Is Spinal Tap" blu-ray.
