I know. It's disturbing on so many levels.
I went to an estate sale today close to my home. I got there early and I was the first person to hit the records and CDs. Found some nice albums with several still in the shrink wrap. Unfortunately, I had to leave just as many behind due to condition of the vinyl. Records and CDs were $2.00 each and she counted the Chess Blues box set as one CD.
Stopped at an estate sale this morning. Picked up a Stanton 999sh with d75s stylus. Not much info on this cart, anyone have an idea of value? It looks good, has all the screws, I don't think it was ever mounted...
Is that Hopkins 'Soul Blues' a reissue? The original Prestige mono is of considerable value.
This is a CD I picked up. Even the CD runs around $20.00.
Cream in shrink. Is it yellow label?
Tri-color Atco label, 1-A on both sides.
I guess my eyesight isn't what is was....
That Blues at Newport 1964, Part 1 album looks like it might be interesting.
Snagged 45 or so records from an estate on my lunch break. Mostly junk like Bauhaus & Pet Shop Boys. Have yet to go through it, was obviously in a hurry. Didn't even check condition but the sleeves were all NM so I took the chance...
Estate company owner said he already took the Pink Floyd and stuff. He just had to mention Meddle with the inserts, the one that has eluded me to this day.
Side One: Fred McDowell and Sleepy John Estes.
Side Two: Doc Reese and Robert Pete Williams.
I wouldn't consider Bauhaus junk. Not even close. Nice find, I had to part ways with the majority of my punk/ new wave albums during a divorce many years ago. Some day....
Quite a mix now that I paged through it again. I think it was a few estates worth of stuff since he asked me what color price tags. All kinds of different stuff ranging from Bauhaus to Santana to Miles and back to Depeche Mode. All in excellent shape. Couple sleeve scuffs here and there but that's all. Don't even feel the need to clean them...
*edit* Needed a photo of course! These are just a few selections. Great condition on all of it. Someone took take of their stuff...
I've been looking for that Kinks album forever! Muswell Hillbillies is a classic. Lots of other great stuff in there!!!
Got this SONY TA-3200F 110WPC Stereo Amplifier with original wood case at an estate sale on Friday. It powers on and has a clean interior. Now to find a reasonably priced pre-amp to pair with it.
Is this AK Anonymous?
My name is Peter, and I feel I am addicted to vintage audio.
I come here for my daily fix.
I see all the wonderful stuff others have found, then leave feeling I need to go out and look for some wonderful stuff myself!
There, now I feel better.
*passes you a needle
Errrr, wouldn't that be a stylus?
One man's junk... That Selecter album has eluded me for years, top notch second wave ska from Two Tone records. The Faith No More and Depeche Mode aren't too shabby either. I think you meant that this stuff was fodder, nothing too out of the ordinary.
