Road to Ruin

Here’s my internal thought process at the record store the other day.

“Hey, it’s “Red Roses for Me” by the Pogues. Man, that’s a great album. Since I have the vinyl though, it’s probably not worth getting on CD. This sticker says it’s re-mastered though and the production was a bit flat. Still, probably not worth it. Oh wait, there are six bonus tracks. Let’s look at those. Hmmm, one Irish standard and a shorter version of “And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda” from “Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash.” That’s still four songs I haven’t heard before. I dunno, there are so many newer records I could get instead. What’s that? It’s on sale for $8.99? Damn you Shane McGowan, you go straight to hell!”

So yeah, I got the CD and it was totally worth it.
