hood yesterday. Problem was, I could not get to them at a decent (9-10am) time. Based on another commitment, I could only get to a few, and at the late-ish time of 12 noon. The first sale I hit was a huge disappointment. The lady said "all the vinyl went early." Argh. The next one was good - two large boxes of LP's. A few years ago - I would have made an offer for the whole lot. It had too many opera and show tune records for my taste, but I picked out about 25 LP's. A sale across the street had only 45's and I bought the whole stack. In it were my first-ever Sun and Chess records. I feel like a true collector now that I have those two. Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, respectively.
