I am going to do something a bit strange and blog a record I’ve never listened to.
That’s right. I have never heard this record, Love Songs For The Hearing Impaired by Dan Baird.
So why am I blogging about it?
Because I keep getting recommended this record, in last.fm (neighbor radio), in amazon.com (customers with similar searches purchased), and on Jackson’s blog. That’s a pretty strong set of recommendations in my book.
So why have I never heard it? Well I didn’t buy it when it was made in the early 90s and now it’s not available on Amazon.com, iTunes, eMusic, Rhapsody, or Yahoo! Music Unlimited. I suppose I can head down to the used record stores on Bleecker Street but that’s not my style.
If anyone knows where I can get this record online (and not used), I’d love to hear about it.
It’s supposed to be really good.
UPDATE: I am currently bidding on a "like new condition" used CD of this record on eBay, inspired by Chris Fralic’s comment. Wish me luck.
