On the Record, Vol. 1
I meant to start this new series earlier in the year, but, guess what? I didn't. So here it is now.
"On the Record," born out of trying to motivate myself to actually listen to the records I buy at the vintage stores and record fairs in these United States, is a look into the Tinsel and Rot record collection, one LP at a time. I'm gonna try to make it a daily look, but I offer you no promises. So here we go.

Should I, a Normal Human Being, Buy It?: If you have fond memories of "The Morton Downey Jr. Show" and you see it for under $5, yeah, you should. And if you don't have fond memories of "The Morton Downey Jr. Show," I think you know what you should do (hint: it's not whip it or flip it)
