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 them are worth less than nothing, but there are a few gems.
Had this nice score at a thrift shop a few blocks away. It’s a small store, they don’t usually have too much, but that makes it easy to pick through. Actually, I had all but given up on this place– they’ve had pretty much the same records for the last 3 months or more. But on this particular visit I could immediately see that things had changed in the vinyl department: the presence of new LPs was obvious. And amidst some of the usual crap– Neil Diamond, Air Supply, etc., I did manage to find these:
- Paul McCartney/Wings – Venus and Mars
- Paul McCartney/Wings – Band on the Run
- Fleetwood Mac – Mystery to Me
- Simon & Garfunkel’s Greatest Hits
- Steve Winwood – Chronicles
- Kiss – Dynasty
- Jethro Tull – Heavy Horses
I actually can’t wait to check out that Kiss LP especially, because the curiosity is killing me. I own no Kiss records or CDs, but I did see them live some years back when they toured with Aerosmith.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to spinning all of these very soon! All of the records look VG+ to NM and I’m gonna call this one a “score” even though I haven’t listened to a single one yet.
The Verdict: SCORE!
My Cost: $3.50 (50¢ each)
