While that is a nice condition 2216b, I would suggest at least a 2238b. Should be able to find a good one for even less than that. Recently bought a 2218 in similar condition for $275 (lower right one in my post above). My 2 personal favorites are the 2285b and the 2252b.

» YouTube video

This reminded me of the film adaptation of Tom Stoppard's play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead... haven't watched it in a while but 'Seamus' was a perfect fit.

All you guys that love the Mats like I do, RUN, don’t walk to get this. They’re drunk enough to be loose but sober enough to get through the gig which was paramount for them in the mid 80s. Absolute herd of elephants when they hit their stride. Out of four stars, this is clearly a seven. *******/4

Edit to add: this is not a bootleg bullshit recording. This was recorded on the record cos. dime with big expectations, but the band did a faceplant and it was shelved for 30 years.

My daughter, Kiki, is an old soul. Like me, she loves the British Invasion bands of the sixties. We are thrilled to have attended The Zombies concert last Saturday in Collingswood, NJ. Keyboardist, Rod Argent, reunited with vocalist, Colin Blunstone, 18 years ago and they've been touring ever since. I first attended a Zombies concert at the Borgata in Atlantic City, about 15 years ago, which included rock legend bassist, Jim Rodford, along with Rod and Colin. Tragically, on January 20, 2018, 2 months ago, Jim Rodford (who also performed with The Kinks) died at age 76, after falling down stairs.

The close-up photo, on stage, depicts The Zombies and Don DiLego's duo. The Zombies performed a variety of glorious songs, including fan favorites: "Time of the Season," "Tell Her No," "She's Not There," as well as Argent's "Hold Your Head Up" and, in honor of Rodford, "God Gave Rock 'n' Roll to You."

As an introduction to performing the single: "I Love You," Colin told the backstory of the band's misfire by failing to promote that great song. The song was written by Chris White, original bassist of The Zombies in 1965. The Zombies released it that August as a B-side to "Whenever You're Ready." Unfortunately, it didn't chart; but, it was a good discovery for Larry Norman, vocalist of the one-hit wonder California band, People! The California band parlayed the hit into an extensive tour appearing three times on Dick Clark's American Bandstand, and also on Johnny Carson's The Tonight Show. Billboard ranked People!'s version as #53 in their top 100 songs for 1968, while it was ranked #75 in the Cashbox annual charts. The success of People!'s version of "I Love You" frustrated The Zombies. According to Blunstone: "That was a bit of a heartbreaker. It wasn't a favorite song of mine to be absolutely honest; but, it was a little disappointing that we were struggling so hard." Blunstone joked that The Zombies original version of the song was recently featured in a milk commercial and that the cream eventually rises to the top.

At age 16, Kiki brought down the audience member average age, which was about 63. My daughter was the youngest in attendance. After seeing Argent's masterful keyboard magic, Kiki is ready to resume her piano lessons so I agreed. I couldn't "Tell Her No."

We much enjoyed the daddy and daughter evening out. I suspect that Kiki will long remember this concert. Rod and Colin are each about 72 years-old. While you would never glean that advanced age from the wonderful performance, I suspect that The Zombies tour will come to an end in the near future.

Check out the sweatshirt I picked up at the concert. Kiki snagged the groovy Odessey and Oracle tote bag. Whenever she carries it, I will be asking her: "What's your name? Who's your baggy?" If you're searching for Kiki in the final photo, please don't bother trying to find her. . she's not there. Begin audible groans accompanied by eye rolls. The Zombies sound fantastic as a backdrop to the chimes of the Gottlieb wedgeheads in my game room, which is where I'm headed now. Peace.

Here's that second thumbs up for the Zombies and the great story. Pinside only allows me 1.
I think there is truth to some of us having older souls inside.. (not that the 60's is old or anything to suggest that...)
(and Nag Champa is still my favorite)

Teddy Pendergrass. Another tragic ending for a great artist.

Completely agree. This is definitely worth checking out and certainly was a good show for the later Bob era. Having seen the Mats play a shit ton of live shows, I have to say that the shows I saw in support of Pleased to Meet Me were my favorites. Sad that Bob had to go for the shows to become more consistent. It is not an over exaggeration when people say that The Replacements were sometimes the world's greatest live band and sometimes quite the opposite. I saw shows that were way better than this one and a few that were so bad that the band could not even finish the set.

Another great official live release is Inconcerated from 1989. Might be hard to track down these days, as it was a promo-only Sire EP recorded during the Don't Tell a Soul period. The band sound a little more put together on it (as they tended to do after Slim came along) but there is a certain electricity that is missing when compared to For Sale.

Monday, Monday. Needed to hear a favorite band but how do you decide which album?
A&M records made some sweet sounding vinyl.

You have great taste! This was also in my top three last year. The World’s Best American Band was the song of the summer, no doubt.

I feel so left behind with new music. I'm going to have to just "go for it" and order some of these.

Meantime, it's easy to remember names like "The Byrds". (:

I've seen the latest incarnation of the band three times now. Can't say enough how great they sound. Last year they toured with the original band and did all of Odyssey and Oracle. To see Chris White perform with them was one of the best live moments I have ever witnessed.

And the song " I Love You" is beyond f$%^ good. Such a great song and recording.

I would just go for all of em. I bought the Police Box Set back in the mid 90s. Probably one of the best music purchases I ever made. They've got some great B-sides. I've since gone back and picked up most of their stuff on LP, 7" and 12" single. They're brilliant. I also still listen to Sting's "Dream of Blue Turtles" LP quite a bit.

Record shopping in Negril , Jamaica. Tiny store. More like a closet. Old reggae. Sleeves were trashed, vinyl scratchy. But asking $40-$80 per record.
Sadly, I passed

Out of production , Jamaican vinyl.
