My wife and I left Chicago and went to Indiana for a couple days to get away from the fireworks/gunfire warzone that is our city on the 4th of July.
While in Lafayette we stopped in a record store where I’ve sometimes found good stuff. This time, even more so than in the past, everything was priced outrageously high - like what a record might sell for on eBay on a good day, and then doubled. It was looking impossible, but then I found this record for really cheap and was able to leave extremely happy.
If you don’t know the Sacramento band Tales of Terror, this is their one and only self-titled record from 1984, and it’s really good. Thankfully someone uploaded the whole album to Youtube so you can listen to it here. The group’s story is also quite interesting and tragic; the band’s great guitarist Lyon Wong was murdered in what sounds an awful lot like a hate crime, which effectively ended the band. More on Tales of Terror in this 2010 article Midtown Monthly.
