Our weekly incoming used CD rack is sharing space with Christmas music for this last stretch of the year, so the real estate has been compromised but there’s enough room for some new heaters to find residence. Now would be the perfect time for Inspectah Deck the Halls synergy, but chance and commerce refuse to mingle. What we do have is a six pack of the 40th anniversary CD/DVD reissues in the King Crimson catalog, along with deluxe editions of Elvis Costello’s “My Aim Is True” and both Joy Division albums. Of more recent vintage, there’s gems from Big Thief, Bon Iver, Vampire Weekend, St. Vincent and Florence and the Machine. AM Gold worshippers She & Him are repped by their sunny debut and their own Christmas offering. R&B and rap are repped by a couple from Minny legends Atmosphere, two from Blood Orange and Mike Jack’s top moment “Thriller.” Odds and ends include Lake Shore Drive, Kathleen Edwards, The Ramones and The Traveling Wilburys.
