This was a happy find for me. I’d come across a copy of this record before, but sold it off in a lot of classical LPs and realized afterwards I had made a big mistake. For a short bit I was reselling some things on Ebay, which is tricky for me because sometimes I would […]
Nope, I’m still here…but “life” has taken over and it’s been difficult to keep this blog up to date. Still, I’ll keep it here and will try and add new posts now and then as time allows. In the meantime, I’ve just found another cool “thrift store records” blog here: Thrift Store DJ. Features some […]
I used to be a big fan of this show. As a kid I watched more than my share of Get Smart reruns, and still make references to the shoe phone and the cone of silence. Surprisingly, most people seem to know what I’m talking about. I guess that’s a testament to the popularity of […]
Found this LP of Mussorgsky‘s Pictures at an Exhibition at a Goodwill last week. Honestly, what sealed the deal for me on this record was the cover. Amazing! I do love this piece though. Was skeptical about whether this would be a good rendition, but in fact it sounds very good. This was recorded by […]
Wow…it’s been a while since I’ve posted here. It’s been a busy several weeks. I did, however, manage to get out to the thrifts a few times. Spring is definitely in full swing and it looks like folks are now starting to bring in their LPs by the boatload. Of course a large percentage of […]
It does appear that spring is here. People are cleaning out their attics and more stuff is finding its way to the thrifts. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean I’ve found anything good! A few really close calls though. The most frustrating one was yesterday, hit a thrift store around the corner from me and saw that […]
File this one under…”Where the hell have I been?” Wow. Not only am I amazed that I never heard this entire record before, I’m amazed that I’m admitting it here! It’s true though. I’ve liked Earth, Wind & Fire for a long time but somehow this, one of their biggest albums ever, slipped through the […]
Often the mere mention of the words “Vinyl vs. CD” sends people into epileptic fits, causing an endless, raging debate that will continue until the involved parties are even angrier. People on both sides present various “facts” and “opinions” even as the line between both of those things blurs until it is totally nonexistent. In […]
How does this happen? Is it just me? Is it a cruel joke played on all of us crate diggers by the Goodwill employees? Most recently it was a copy of Queen‘s The Game, a record I knew from many years ago but never owned. Damn, I was excited when I found it… In a […]
Came home with some pretty decent stuff from the Goodwill yesterday. It was exciting just because I haven’t had any luck in a while, so I was happy to find anything that looked remotely interesting. My cat likes them too, she was smelling them all afternoon. I’m gonna take that as a good sign and […]
