WHERE DO I GET THIS STUFF?
I am often asked where to find some of the promo CDs in my discography.
Here's how to find them:
- Go to a LOT of record shows. I can't stress this enough. Everything
shows up at record shows sooner or later. Ask every vendor if they have
anything from the Bosstones. Most won't. Some will, but usually not with
them. Get an address or phone number and contact them later. Or better
yet, find out where the next show is and ask them to bring their stuff
then. If you ask for the Bosstones a lot, the vendors will start
searching out stuff for you since they know they can sell it.
For a decent listing of record shows in your area, pick up a copy
of Goldmine Magazine.
- eBay, eBay, eBay. If you don't know what eBay is,
go to eBay and find out what you're
missing. Use their
Search Page and
try searching for
make sure you check the "Search Title AND Description" box
to get the most results.
- Search the Internet. Especially the newsgroups. Try the
Google Groups search engine. Try
"Bosstones CD" or
that usually works pretty good. The articles are a week behind but it's really darn handy. Also give
Scott's Music Page
a try. It has links to hundreds of music vendors on the web. With a
little luck and hard work, you might find something good.
- Look in a record collectors magazine like
These are just two, there are several on the market.
Go to Borders or Barnes & Noble
and look through the magazine racks, you'll find them. Bosstones
merchandise will make an appearance occasionally but not enough to
justify buying the magazine. Just go over to the coffee section,
have a seat, and read it there.
- Get on the 737 mailing list. 737 often offers import versions of
the regular CDs with added bonus tracks. Sometimes, they offer free
promo CDs when you buy a particular item.
- Check out my Auction link on the main page. When I come across extra
copies of promo CDs or whatever, I'll put them up for auction there. Of
course, since they aren't exactly easy to find, I often have to buy
them from other collectors, they won't go cheap. I suggest you try the
other 4 routes above first and then check out my stuff.
