In my purchasing of thrift-store CDs, I had hit a dry spell for a little while. I just kept coming across the same k.d. lang and Britney Spears albums. I considered giving up, but not too seriously. And then I suddenly found three Echoing Green albums all at once! It was a very bizarre moment.
I’m not necessarily a big Echoing Green fan. I have watched them in concert once or twice and even met and chatted with Joey. I also do admit to buying their “Supernova” album when I was in high school. I liked it at the time, but it seems a quintessential high school album – the type that didn’t age too well with me. Anyway, it was too much of a coincidence to pass these by. Besides, I’ve always been curious what their older material sounded like.
