@viridian, you wanna talk old? I saw The Beatles, The Beach Boys with Brian playing bass, Hendrix with Mitch and Noel, The Dead with Pigpen, and The Who with Keith Moon (on the "A Quick One" and "Tommy" tours). I became acquainted with Billy Swan ("I Can Help") when we both lived in Sherman Oaks, and he told me he had seen Elvis, Scotty, and Bill (pre-D.J. Fontana) live on the back of a flatbed truck, in 1956!
Sorry rookies, I saw Louie Armstrong and his All Stars live when I was about 10. Let's show some reverence here! ;^)
In other news, good finds bdp. I have that Auldridge and it is a good one. Actually I have lots of LPs from the '50s, '60s, and '70s bought new. Plus some carefully selected used records from that period too. I'm not sure how many are first releases (and impossible to tell if first pressings) but when they are clean many of them are sonically pleasing as well as musically. So I've found very little need to pay current prices for remastered copies of those records. It sounds like you found two great resources for affordable music.
