Record Store Day-- Part 2: And Buying

I wasn't just at The Vinyl Frontier to yak, I was there to buy.  Like they say, "Support your local record store."

I did buy one double CD, Woodstock '94, for $4.99.

Then, it was on to flipping.  Nothing better than flipping through some albums and finding those hidden treasures, ones that you never thought you'd find when you enter.

AFFORDABLE ART--  Steve Goodman, $3--  If you live in Chicagoland, you gotta love the Steve.  And this one had "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request" and a song with John Prine.

SUGAR SHACK--  Jimmy Gilmer & the Fireballs, $4--  Worth it just for the title song, but other goodies like "Linda Lu," "Let the Good Times Roll" and "Suzie Q."

AMERICAN TOUR--  The Dave Clark Five, $2 (beat up, but I have one old turntable with a beat up cartridge)--  Other than "Because" the rest of the songs are ones I'm not familiar with.

And there were two more REAL SPECIAL ones I'll write about tomorrow, WORDS OF EARNEST and MOVIN' TOWARD HAPPINESS.
