    Was perusing the record store and per my daughter request she asked for 80's song. Didn't find anything and asked the owner when a customer replied "I buy all them". Good for you I thought... He missed one.
    Best of OMD. Great record. Glad I found it for her.

    A rocks throw from JBLM !!!!
    Maybe this went over my head ?

    I thought a score was from a garage sale or a thrift store. Like "score" !

    I've found some extremely high quality vinyl at thrift stores and it's a score because the person went out of their way, from their normal day and got it for almost free.

    I know...

    It was the use of the word......SCORE !

    Score does not mean a purchase at a retail store.

    When there isn't a single, not one 80's record in that closet of a "record" store (6 ft wide literally) and I happen to find "The Best of" when a record shark missed it, well that's a score for me. :banana: But I do know what you mean.

    OK. Went to a yard sale and found only one record worth buying. Original Eagles 1976 pressing 7E-1084. For the whopping price of $1.

    I did post this in dollars, and sense, but I think most would consider a worthy buy for a couple quarters.

    Went to a barn sale Sat. - rodent pee smell was about overwhelming - wife wasn't in long. Poked around long enough to find a box of LPs stashed along a wall. Looked at first couple - hmm Stones Sticky Fingers cover worn but vinyl very good. Lady says $10 so I grab them & head for the door.
    Fortunately box was closed up & no smell.
    Around 40 LPs all classic rock! Covers show a lot of wear but 75 % of the vinyl is awesome condition.
    4-5 Stones - Zep - Savoy Brown... the gem of the lot... MFSL Little Feat Waiting for Columbus - looks unplayed !

    My take from a visit to Rebel Rebel while in NYC this week. The store closes for good at the end of the month.
    $100 there doesn't go as far as it does at Jerry's. That's a first issue Aoxomoxoa up there. :D

    A new customer asked about the Discogs sticker on my work van. I explained what it was and he mentioned that he was a former Sony exec from Hong Kong. Later on he informed me that if I wasn't afraid of spiders I could take a look in the back of his crawlspace for some old records that may or may not still be in there.

    They were. 220 of them. Most of them are from Hong Kong and Japan. A few are from Europe and the US. Some say Hong Kong/Singapore/Malaysia. So far about 40% of the first two dozen albums versions are not listed at Discogs. I have my work cut out for me it seems.

    All are mint and look unplayed. 24 of them are sealed. Most are in shrink wrap even the gatefolds because he just slit the sleeve open to remove the records.The Jackson's Live, Springstein's The River and this Joan Jett are the only two that show any cover wear but the vinyl is still near mint. I cannot find a single mark on any record so far. He told me that none of it was his kind of music and most had only one or two songs played before he them he put them in boxes. He didn't recognize most of the artists so he he tested each record to determine if he liked the style. He doesn't like western pop music. He said that they were all free and they were supposed to be thrown in the trash when he moved to Canada but somehow the two boxes of records ended up in the container Sony rented to transport his belongings here.

    Here is the first 15 or so I pulled from the front of the first box and a picture of a promo stamp;

    So this is a belated score. I am in the process of cataloging my 250 (ish) records on Discogs and discovered that I have a copy of an original UK pressing of Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures with the textured cover. Paid around $8 (Can) years ago and now it sells for around $100.00
    :) Nice!

    This afternoon my wife, stepson and I stopped in at our local Salvation Army looking for some "found objects" for a sculpture course the lad is taking at uni. I just had a wee peek at the record area (usually pretty lame of late) and realized I'd hit a classical musician's mother lode.

    I've sorted the LPs by general timeframe and the following is a listing of just part of the lot. There is another pile I've not typed up from the 19th century back to the Renaissance that is even bigger! There are seven nice boxed sets in the bunch. All records are in brilliant condition. So much fascinating music! There are a few works I already have recordings of, but only one I have an exact duplicate for, the "Stratas Sings Weill". That being one of my favourite recordings that I play often I am happy to have backup. I asked if they would do a bulk sale to me as there were so many contemporary classical recordings that few would be interested in and they ended up being more generous than I even would have suggested. Let's just say that they came out to less than 50¢ per title including the sets!
