This is just the last two weeks. More on the way. I'm in a bit of a binge cycle RN...
Too tired to take and post a picture right now. Must get some sleep! But the long and short of it is I've saved a lot of money at one of the Record Theater outlets that is closing-- I just grabbed 15 Vinyl LPs (Blue Note and Prestige) this morning, and a great Coltrane Atlantic box set on CD last week, at 50% off retail.
Worked a twenty hour day yesterday, only got a brief nap then got up early to get to the store when they opened; just a little late as a lady ahead of me had already scanned the Jazz LPs and she looked like she had about 30 of them! But I'm still happy with my haul (Sonny Rollins, Art Blakey, Clifford Brown, Pat Martino, Duke Jordan, Eric Dolphy, Stanley Turrentine, Jimmy Smith, Kenny Dorham, Curtis Counce, Red Garland, Lee Morgan, etc.)...
I had a pretty big score today at one of our area Goodwill's. Lots of desirable jazz.
All in excellent condition, vinyl looks perfect, all but one of the covers are in really nice condition, most of them have the heavier external covers and many of them have new anti-static type inside covers.
There were actually so many quality jazz records, it was ridiculous! I initially grabbed about 90 then went over to the furniture section to sort through them. I rejected about 40 of them. As I was going through everything, another LP-hound came along and was sort of looking over my shoulder. I told him that I would let him look through my rejects, many of which were pretty decent, and for him to go back over and look through the records still on the shelves. He probably ended up getting over 50 of them and we still left probably 50 or 60 on the shelves. He seemed pretty happy with some of my rejects.
I also got maybe 5 or 6 pop and rock LP's in super perfect condition and my first piece of red-colored vinyl.
Pics to follow.
Sounds like an awesome score; yes, pix please. Any Blue Note or Prestige? Pablo, Verve, Impulse!, CTI or IC?
Inspired by another member that made a video rather than taking pics so... I made a video.
Let me know if anything looks particularly good.
This was a very good day for vinyl! I found several albums I've been pursuing and I even found an original copy of The Velvet Underground and Nico. The whole lot cost me a whopping $24!
John Lennon- Walls And Bridges
The Rolling Stones- Goats Head Soup
Elton John- "Empty Sky" and "Tumbleweed Connection"
U2- "War", "October" and "Wide Awake in America"
Ted Nugent- "Scream Machine" and "Free For All"
Heatwave- Too Hot To Handle
Blue Oyster Cult- Agents Of Fortune
Judas Priest- Screaming For Vengeance
and of course The Velvet Underground and Nico
So after looking through them, a few are from those labels:
Jim Hall Concierto is on CTI
Ron Carter Spanish Blue is on CTI
Freddie Hubbard Red Clay is on CTI
Oscar Peterson Night Train is on Verve
Oscar Peterson West Side Story is on Verve (Japanese Pressing)
Yusef Lateef Other Sounds is on Prestige
PS-- Just watched your video; outta sight! I am seriously jealous; where did you find that?
Crazy-in-az-- Nice Rock score!!
Love that Operation Ivy
Found a new record that I can not find anything on. Some random privately pressed record I'm sure, I think the label is the same label created by a guy named "Al Petty" who is now serving 24 years for embezzling more than 16 million dollars from investors in Texas.
The music is smooth jazz/rock.
Love it. A good day considering there were five record pro's ahead of me.
Also at the suggestion of a member in another thread I bought a Minolta 50mm lense to look at the needle. Fifty cents is a great price for that imho.
But that Tom Jones from Japan is killing me. Why is the cover so flimsy?
i will be listing this score when i can get started going through them, have no idea whats here
Went over to friends house to find this unique record. Not a big Buble fan. I tried googling it finding no info on it. I was told it was a Michael Bubles wedding album with only 500 printed. Thought I would share.

I asked at a garage sale if they had any records and was led inside and told be to pick out some records from their collection.

Picked these up for $10 today. Like new.
Grabbed the CD version of the Escape from NY soundtrack off Amazon for $11.36, and it's due in on Thursday. CUETools is set up for ripping the album, and then the CD itself is being stashed somewhere it won't get damaged.
