Recovering Music

I picked up the following CDs on sunday:
Bob Marley & the Wailers - Legend (1984)
U2 - Joshua Tree (1987)
Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back (1988)
Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique (1989)

Those are the orginal release dates at the end. Not sure why but I just felt like I needed to have this music. The last time I owned a U2 album I liked, it was on casette tape. Same thing for Public Enemy. I've picked up old Bob Marley before, but always avoided the overplayed Legend album. The Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique album was their crossover album where they lost old fans and didn't gain many new ones. Check Your Head was more of of a shake-up between what they were and what they would become, but Paul's Boutique blended nicely.
