And in all honesty, I still have my original tape from my birthday in 1987.
When I was in college I was in my "vinyl" faze. Guess what I came across? That's right. Did I buy it? You bet I did.
And yes, that is the exact picture of my "Permanent Vacation" vinyl album.
So it occurred to me a few weeks ago, that this album that I have ranked #2 of my greatest personal albums of all time is not in my collection on CD.
Well, I checked on Ebay, and it turned out that a lot of old CDs are being sold for .99 cents plus shipping. Well, a little over three bucks and five days later I had this in my hands.
It's not in great condition, but it works in my car's CD player, and that's all that counts.
I now feel compete as I put both "Permanent Vacation" and "Pump" on my Ipod. Since I've talked about it so much, you might as well give it a listen.
