Gettin’ Loose In Phoenix: Joey Foils Kyle Again While Ryan Newman Ends His Drought

It seemed Kyle Busch might win the Camping World 500 at Phoenix, but Joey Logano hit the wall. And as a large part of the field pitted for tires, Ryan Newman stayed out and managed to fend off Kyle Larson and Busch for the final two laps. Below is a pic that went viral after the race of Ryan Newman with a much younger Kyle Larson, the 1-2 finishers from Phoenix.

I love this box set! 180 gram vinyl that sounds amazing with extra tracks like the outstanding live version of ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’. This is a scratch and dent copy I got on ebay for about $30. I could care less about the edge wear on the box because the vinyl sounds so fantastic! New copies can be found for as little as $50 on discogs, ebay, and amazon. One of my favorites from my collection.

Scoop’s Vinyl Oddities: The Ramones ‘Eaten Alive’ Live In Utica

This is a record I picked up at Other Music, a very cool record store in Greenwich Village which unfortunately just closed earlier this year. A couple years ago as I thumbed through the racks of vinyl, I was amazed to find this Ramones concert recorded in Utica at 4 Acres! The sound quality is pretty good for being an unofficial release, and I have since seen this with a different cover…Maybe you were there???
