I've been collecting vinyl since 2003 (first albums were The Monkees 'Headquarters' and 'Birds & Bees') and CDs since I was old enough to begin appreciating music right around the turn of the millennium.

My favorite types of music are early 00s pop, 60s pop and Latin pop, as well as female vocalists in pretty much any genre. My top artists are Selena, The Monkees, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Cher, Carpenters, Shakira.

I'm not very picky about pressings or editions, but if there are bonus tracks to be had I'm all over it!

I primarily shop in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area of Minnesota USA and love to stop into shops as I travel!

Is this the only place (besides the big box set of Birds & Bees) to find Ceiling In My Room?

The music itself is very generic and nothing groundbreaking is happening here, however from Selena it is some fun exploration and a good addition to her discography!

Without bonus tracks, what makes this a deluxe edition? Out of curiousity

A psychedelic Monkees compilation without Daily Nightly or Writing Wrongs??? Very disappointing. The packaging and vinyl - and idea - is gorgeous, but missing some core (in my opinion) tracks from the psychedelic corners of their catalog makes it a... See full review

This is a really nice pressing! The blue is crisp and gorgeous, threw me off that it is 45rpm for a second! The sound is really great, glad to have this in my collection.

Everything on my pressing is the same (RCA logo on the cover, same label) however the matrix / runout is ONE number off.
Side 1: G2 PP1282-6S
Side 2: G 2PP-1283-15S
Not sure if the spacing matters but that is how it looks on the pressing. Any insight... See full review

SUCH a good album! This has always been the best of the original trilogy of Destiny's Child solo albums, in my opinion. Definitely worth having in your collection.

Very underrated album! Victoria has a surprisingly lovely voice that didn't get enough attention in the Spice Girls. This album is a great showcase for her vocals, while not powerful they are very smooth and sweet. Not to mention to early 2000s pop flavour. See full review

Unless I got an off copy, these are not club remixes. Both sides are the album versions, although Dirty Dirty is instrumental on side A and acapella on side B as it says, the rest of definitely just the album versions.
I really love both of these... See full review

For an album produced to fail as a tax write off, it not too bad! I can't wait to play this next time my mother-in-law, whose life revolves around the Monkees even more than mine, is over and see how long it takes for her to recognize the songs!

With this being an unofficial release (and not having purchased a "bootleg" before) I was nervous about the sound quality. But this sounded just great! It had only a few spoken word interludes taken from the show to add context to the songs. Very glad... See full review

Really like the packaging on this release! Comes in a nice "flip open" cardboard box, with the 2 CD's in their own paper sleeves. Not to mention the album is really fantastic.

ETA: The bonus tracks are absolutely fire!! I almost like them better than... See full review

"Britney" is one of my All Time Favorites so I just had to have this vinyl pressing. It looks beautiful and plays perfectly. Love it!

It's always interesting to me when singles are SO GOOD and the rest of the album just falls flat. I've been obsessed with Supergirl since it came out early 20 years ago. 2 years ago I was lucky enough to find this album at a 2nd hand store and... See full review

Not sure why these EPs are re-selling so high. Before you shell out here, they are currently still for sale on their official website. I just purchased this and Sanctuary, $26 for both including shipping. A great way to save money and support the... See full review

The singles from this album are super fun, but I must say a few of the other tracks are pretty obvious copycats.
Rollercoaster is very reminiscent of Mumford & Sons while Love Her is very much a Justin Bieber style.
If not for the single (and... See full review

Ah! Sold out! I'm so bummed the store is closed, although I understand her purpose. All of a sudden I'm fully obsessed with this album, it's driving me crazy it's so hard to get on CD!

Not just another live album. The mixing is superior than others in that you can clearly hear the music and their vocals, really bringing you to the front row of their concert tour. While it's unfortunate we no longer have half of this legendary group,... See full review
