16, 17, & 18: filling in the gaps

I went used-CD scavenging with my friend Harry on Saturday. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, but it ended up becoming a plug-the-holes-in-my-classic-rock-collection day:

16. Pink Floyd -- Atom Heart Mother
17. Jethro Tull -- Minstrel in the Gallery
18. Rush -- Rush

All three titles were remastered and in brand-spanking-new condition. I often wonder why such discs become orphans. My latest theory is that many people are cloning their collections and cryogenically storing them in their iPods, then callously disposing of the original DNA-donors. Oh well--their loss, my gain. Musical orphans always have a place to stay at my house.
