“The Lost Boys: Hard-To-Find ’80s Albums” gives you exactly what the title implies: a rare or out-of-print album or EP from the ’80s in its entirety. Some will be from CD, but most will have been lovingly transferred from pristine vinyl culled directly from the Analog Kid’s vast collection. Whatever album I choose, it will be one that you can’t easily find a physical copy for sale on Amazon or in your local record store (if you even have one anymore). Death…by stereo!
The Judy’s were a punk/new wave band from Pearland, a suburb of Houston. If you were a teenager in Texas during the early ’80s, you either owned The Judy’s “Washarama” album or knew someone who did. I have no idea if the Judy’s made any sort of real impact outside of their native state, but “Guyana Punch” was definitely one of the defining songs of my 9th and 10th grade years.
Freshen up, my friends!

Hi I am looking for the CD for this album. Do you or anyone have a copy that I could buy or borrow to download?
I just updated the song links on this older blog entry so that the style will match the more recent entries. [Hint: right-click the blue song link and enjoy!]
I have an original copy still in the shrink wrap of this album. Has Infiniite record store price tag on it. Anyone interested in purchasing it? email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have two copies on LP– thanks though!! 🙂
Do you have the Moo album? I’m looking all over for the full thing yet can’t find it anywhere! A second Judys blog, the consumers demand it!
I do have The Moo album–on both CD and LP actually! I’ll see what I can do to get it posted for you.
