buying "imports" at record stores in the early 90s

Ive found in time the search on this forum was shit but if you google whatever keywords with the word hipinion, you get what you're looking for most of the time. I mean even when they keywords aren't exact.

I used to drool over this kiss the stone catalog I somehow got sent in the mail

Happy to hear 25 years later that most of those discs were probably absolute trash

Ha. Had this one.

Also had the two “Beastiality” bootlegs:

complete with those unlisted “sex show” tracks at the end where some like 12 year old kid read penthouse letters or something to his robot friend Gabby-D. Not sure what those were about, if that actually was the beasties/beastie-related or some kind of performance piece done by the bootleggers...
