Does the appearance of an album/CD cover or the title in itself entice you to buy it?
#1
NOTE: I tried to amend the "a" to an "an" before the word Album and I couldn't...you get the drift even with the grammatical error !!!...lol I managed it for you............you had run out of character spaces !! Gryphon )

We may have all done it...cheap price...cool cover...or cool album title.

Here's an example of some of my discoveries:

Mostly for the title.

For both - title - Amateur Girlfriends Go Proskirt Agents ???? and cover...great album !!!!

Just for the brilliance of the colour...this is how I was introduced to Type O Negative.

I have done this on some occasions and mostly I have been pleasantly surprised by what I have found !
Nice to be able to go back to trust and friendship!!!!!!!!!

It's a mixed up sensation this being alive
Oh! it wears a man down into the ground
It's the strangest elation
I can't describe it
Oh it leaves a man weary
It makes a man frown.

Have done in the past, but not so much since the advent of internet mail-order (Amazon).

Rarely go into record stores now, not that there are many left...

I always find at least one tune that I like. Two of the ones I posted sent me after more from the same bands. I enjoy exploring the world of music.
