View Full Version : I do love a Sunday at the record show...

I do love some record show shopping and bought all of the following at prices ranging from 50 cents to a high of 3 dollars. Most were a buck or two:

Miles Davis: Man with the Horn
Echo & the Bunnymen: Heaven Up Here
Ike & Tine Turner: Ooh Pooh Pah Doo
Gram Parsons: Grievous Angel
Devo: Freedom of Choice (to replace a scratched to hell copy)
The Flying Lizards: Self-titled
The Selector: Celebrate the Bullet
Ethel Walters: The Complete Bluebird Sessions
Big Mama Thornton: In Europe
The Searchers: Smash Hits
Ian Dury: New Boots and Panties
Kraftwerk: Computer World (already had a mint copy, but could't opass it up for 50 cents to giveaway)
Tommy James & the Shondells: Crimson & Clover
Roy Orbison: The Classic Roy Orbison
Mabel Mercer & Bobby Short: At Town Hall
Bill Laswell: Book of Exit - Sacred System, Dub Chamber 4
Charlie Christian: Hey Charlie, Let's Play the Blues
The Happy Moog
Chic: C'est Chic (mint copy for a buck to replace a scratched up copy)

Went in the place with 40 bucks and had a couple dollars left over, even including the $5 admission fee. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday morning.

I was strongly tempted to lay down some real cash at a table with some original issues of old Cramps records and a couple Lee Perry records I have been wanting for a while, but I tend to figure if I'm gonna pay what something is worth for a record worth decent money, I can go on Ebay or stop in a record store and do that anytime. I mostly just like to wander around the cheap tables at these shows.

Miles Davis 'get up with it'
John Abercrombie 'timeless'
Larry Coryell 'Spaces'
Barclay James Harvest 'time honored ghosts, everyone is everyone else'
Strawbs 'ghosts'
Gabor Szabo 'Mizrab'
Wild Turkey 'Battle Hymns'
Argent 'Nexus, Ring of Hands, Circus'
Brand X 'Unorthodox behavior, Do they Hurt, Masques, Product'
Nektar 'Tab in the ocean'
Dave Mason 'Alone together'
Bill Bruford 'One of a kind, feels good to me'
Cactus 'S/T'
Rare Bird 'As your mind flys by'

Flash 'S/t, out of our hands'
Chris Squire 'Fish out of water'
Dr John the night Tripper 'Gris Gris'
Camel 'the snow goose, mirage'

Its fun filling in the holes in my music collection for cheap.
