This reminds me of my most unusual record "purchase".

Many, many years ago I used to spend way too much of my money at "Sound Machine" in Reading (the cool one, not the one that later opened up in the Mall).

This one day I was chatting with the owner who mentioned he had a luminous record upstairs in the back ... one thing led to another ... he also mentioned how he'd never had a record so bad that he paid someone to take it away.

Well, ... (skipping the less interesting bits which are lost to the my failing neurons) ... I'd never been paid to take a record away either, so was amusingly given a penny AND the record in question.

I'm going to guess that record has sat in my drawer for the past 12 years at least, and I've not played it once....

I've been writing fairly extensively about unique vinyl lately (here). I've found the oddity museum to be an invaluable resource for a few of the articles. Of particular interest to me was the section on recordable metal records.

Mad Magazine's It's a Gas: Cheesy lounge music with burps (not farts, as the text implies) was the epitome of sophisticated humor for an eight year old boy.
