RE: Anybody been Record Shopping today?

Got the chance to hit the Pasadena City College Record Fair this morning; first Sunday of every month in sunny Los Angeles.

 

I picked up a first UK pressing of Gentle Giant Power and the Glory and a first pressing of Henry Cow Unrest; two half-speed mastered Canadian  King Crimson albums (Islands and USA), about 8 quadraphonic albums which i didn't already have plus a handful of other interesting albums including Battle of North West Six by Keef Hartley and four still sealed albums (two Vox Bulgaires, the America album Harbor and Quincy Jones The Dude.  All in all a good day.  The Gentle Giant was in Mint condition with the lyric insert and cost me .... 5 bucks!  Returning to England very happy ...

RE: Anybody been Record Shopping today?

Watched "Searching For Sugarman" at the weekend, and Mrs C insisted that I buy Rodriguez's two albums on vinyl.

Oh all right then. "Cold Fact" and "Coming from Reality" are on their way.

Fantastic film, and what a great singer.

Also just bought...

Laura Marling "Once I was an Eagle"

"Django Unchained" OST

"Random Access Memories"  Daft Punk  (recorded on analogue apparently)

"I am Here" Savages

Well it's my first record fair of the year on Sunday in Stockport (well, it's a book & record fair actually), so hopefully I might pick up a few oldies, in good nick/price etc.  I am steadfastly refusing to buy new these days, due exclusively to the cost.

any luck?

Yes I had a nice walk round and bought a few LPs though I thought the prices had gone up since my last fair last year. More evidence of a new boom in vinyl perhaps? Possibly, but the real bargains were in the CD racks, again a sign of the times?

 

Despite all that I managed to find some decent vinyl from the likes of Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock, Nils Lofgren, Elton John, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and Cochise (who?  I hear you ask Smile).

 

However the one I'm looking forward to playing properly is this curio from 1973..

 

 

Also bought a couple of Nick Drake CDs for good measure.

Don't know all, but I'll hope you enjoy them.

i'm only six months back into vinyl, so I don't really know about prices. I still can get my hand on decent stuff for EUR 1-5.
