Glam Rock Time Now!


10-16-08 Glam Rock Time Now!


In February / March 2005, I was totally about finding as much UK 70’s “Glam Rock” as I could. At the February ’05 Claremont, CA record swap meet, a guy showed up that had most of the LP’s on this list – reasonably priced! I was also buying stuff on-line (from Germany), and scouring local record stores for material of this nature.

This is an era that I've never really pursued as a collector, although like any music lover, I appreciate it's significance. Ron, at one time you had talked about assembling a CD-R or two of "Ron Kane's Definitive Glam Rock Anthology". Seems like I even saw a track listing at one point and you were trying to put some cover art together? Anyway, I'd still be interested in a collection like that!

Seems like I always plan too many collections, Brian. I found the cover art (a nice color Bowie photo) then the quandry came up: use vinyl or use CD's? Or some such cabbage. I never finished it. I still have the demo discs, a mish-mash of vinyl & CD's.
