03/18/2005 Two -In -One Recycled CD Big Score

Can you believe that somebody actully traded in these two cds? I can only hope that they were spare copies.

It seems like a lifetime ago, I bought the lp of More Fun In The New World the day it hit the record stores and played it non- stop until most of my friends were sick of it. Now I am going to do it all over again. I cant say enough good things about this record. This is X at their best - which means that this is rock at its best. This isn't hyperbole; I'm dead serious here.

The Husker Du record I never purchased before but those guys were all over college radio back then so I never had to wait for a Husker Du fix until either the eighties faded away or I sobered up -I can't remember which. Anyway, you never hear early Husker Du these days and it is a shame. Every now and then a "retro" or "Eighties" radio station will play "Makes No Sense at All" or "Could You Be The One" and those are great tunes -no argument from me on that - But this is the raw early stuff and if you haven't heard it in twenty years like me - It is refreshing indeed.
