Seth BS: What happened to your records? (55* d) RE: BS: What happened to your records? 25 Oct 00

One of the nice things about the nineties was that as people dumped their LP collections, they had atendency to show up in the local Goodwiil or Sallly Ann at $1.00 or even .50 cents a pop. I got someone's nearly complete collection of Blue Note JAzz from the fifties and early sixties this way, not to mention '78's by Elvis, Little Richard, Fats Waller, Billie HOliday, Chuck Berry, Dizzy Gillespie, and James Brown. And Bill MOnroe. I was aslo able to usually find very high quality turntables there. I've been out of the country for a while, so I don't know if this has dried up or not. Sound qualitiy matters to me if that is what the recording is about. I don't want to hear pops or scratches with Stockhausen, but with Blind Willie Johnson? He had enough scratches in his voice so that any record sounded scratchy. My wife also thinks I'm crazy, but when I came home with another copy of the Beers Family record that she had played to death, she modified her diagnosis to somewhat unstable but still capable of useful work Seth from China
