Oz – Fire in The Brain (1983)
I have wanted this album for a long time but I never got around to picking it up. Back in the day I remember seeing the vinyl record at Luke’s Record Exchange and Good Vibrations, and it was advertised in all the magazines, but I never got around to actually buying a copy. I did sample it though! In the early ’80s, record stores were more than happy to let people preview a record on the store’s stereo system and that’s exactly what I did. I was 10 years old at the time and buying up cassettes with my weekly allowance but I could never find a cassette copy of FIRE IN THE BRAIN…..the funny thing is that 26 years later there are 2 or 3 cassette copies at the same store in my hometown that I previewed the vinyl at when I was a kid! The album is readily available on Ebay on vinyl and CD so I’m watching the auctions closely. In the meantime, I have been enjoying the album over at Vibrations Of Doom. You can’t download it from the website but you can listen to it.
