Picked up a copy of Lloyd Price "16 Greatest Hits" on ABC from 72 for $.75. The Jacket is worn, but the Vinyl is fantastic. Only drawback the "Stagger Lee" cut is the Dick Clark Version.
Also three Staples Singers albums all great vinyl. Whole deal $3.00

Today, I went to a record swap and picked up Benny Carter's "Further Definitions" LP from 1961, a 2 LP set of jazz from the Okeh label and a few Bill Doggett LPs on King for $8. I also got a bunch of 45s in great condition for around $8. So for less than a $20 bill, I got a bunch of great new music in glorious analog sound. It was a good day.

Soulfully,
MTC

I did Record Day Today. Went to three Record Stores. Some of the prices where out of site, but there sure is a lot of new recordings on vinyl.
I picked up a couple of old Wilson Pickett, and an early Platters. I also got a nice Brenda Lee. There was suppose to be a Rolling Stones 7" out but none of the stores had it.
There were a lot of people out for this. I was really suprised.

On my early morning walk this morning I found a box along the sidewalk with a 'free sign'. It was probably left over from a yard sale. Of course I had to look. I found several albums. One is "Softly" by the Fleetwoods, the one with "Tragedy". The cover is a little rough but the vinyl is perfect. The other is "September In The Rain" by Dinah Washington that is very, very good shape. Both are excellent.

I was looking for a used books store in The Hillcrest Section of San Diego on Saturday. While trying to find a parking spot, I turned up a narrow one way street and grabbed the only spot within blocks. When I got out of the car, I was in front of a Record Store that I didn't even know existed. The store was only about 20 x 30 but packed.They had only new vinyl. I found bins of new stuff and retro. Lots of early Rockabilly and other stuff. Charlie Feathers, Gene Vincent, The Hawkins's, and lots more. Brand new reissues.

Vinyl sales continue to surge, even though overall music sales are down. Even sales of MP3s have leveled out and begun to decline. Viva La Vinyl.

Hey BFSD,
Did you find anything? I picked up a few special limited titles for Record Store Day, but my real finds were just a few jazz and blues records that I picked up along the way. It rained all day, pretty hard, with tornado warnings, so it wasn't the best day to go record store hopping, but a good time was had by all!
