    No Affiliation to show. Visiting a new to me record store, this flyer was on the counter. Looks interesting. In talking to the store owner, this is the 1st show the organizer will have in Rockford, IL. Very easy to get to.

    Sounds great, but as usual I'm working Marquette/De Paul. I'd like to go to one of these shows.

    $2 bucks isn't bad. Most of these shows charge something.

    Hoping to make it to this. Has Rockford had these shows occasionally?

    1st time for Rockford. I went. The bad first. The room was way to small, so it was crowded with the vendors and buyers. The good, the sellers were blown away with the
    turnout, and sounds as if they will be back. Most Lp's were pricey, but I expected that. I only bought 1 album, Jethro Tull's "Stand Up" 1st US pressing for $15.00. A seller
    had lots of live bootleg recordings, as well as bootleg videos of concerts. I had a specific want list, and Tull was not on it, (go figure). I think I'd go again.

    I went. It was small room, but a lot of turnout. Assume vendors liked that. $3 to get in. $2 with a coupon, I did not have.
    Yes, some albums were expensive. I don't often buy $25+ albums, even new. Got 5 jazz albums in vg or better for around $21 & $3 entry. Ella, Heath Bros. Sergio Mendes,Erroll Garner. Was a busy vender with nice sellection of $3 albums. I got three. Many CDs and DVDs, too. Would go again.

    Hi Todd, was looking for you, I got there at 10:00 but had to deliver a component to Mark Peabody, so I was only there a couple of hours.

    Sounds like I missed a good show. Had an appliance breakdown I had to deal with. I was hoping to make it.

    It sounds like they will be back, I just hope they advertise a little better. One of the sellers did not know of the show/sale until the night before.
