The vinyl spin-all
After spending my lunch break thumbing through records at a nearby store today, I got to thinking it might be fun to have a thread here about those nifty discs we enjoy spinning. I don't know if there will be enough interest to keep it going, but I'd love to see what people are picking up and what they've been listening to.
I've been scoping out the thrift stores quite a bit lately for older music on the cheap. Hidden amongst the Chuck Mangione and Ray Conniff records are some tidbits here and there. It's nice because I don't mind grabbing stuff I'm not familiar with or not sure if I will like on a whim when it's only 99 cents. My favorite score so far was a copy of Dave Brubeck's "Time Out", which I happened to find about a week after he passed away. I also came across a copy of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince "He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper" in a sea of Mormon Tabernacle Choir records.
Today's trip to the record store netted me a copy of El Camino by the Black Keys.
I had gone in there to see if they had a copy of "Between the Ditches" by Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band. I just love this song so much.
A couple weeks ago I picked up the newest Toadies album, it's really good too.
So whatcha been listening to lately?
Edit: Also, apparently April 20 is Record Store Day.
