SECOND HAND SOUNDS
Favorite Record Covers...
|...and there's more where this came from! (*groan...*)|
In my early twenties, I was on a quest for good instrumental music. I didn't know what kind or what artists I was searching for. But I experimentally searched NY garage sales & flea markets. I was a weekly visitor of a rather skuzzy weekly one near
and another uptown with my girlfriend. But the pickings were ‘collectables’, slim
and variable in price compared to what I found after moving to LA. LPs were plentiful and cheap as a quarter. Record
Surplus, Santa Monica… Canal St. Canterbury, . The crowded,
dusty bins were my first stop in thrift shops. Pasadena
Things have changed, and the shops have apparently held up on the good stuff to charge more money. No more “white spine” record covers for that little in LA. I should complain; I have more than I can handle now!!
