Milwaukee Record Fair


Here are my finds from the Milwaukee record fair. It was a nice event, somewhat smaller than I expected but over all a quality show. There were probably 13 tables of record dealers along with several CD, DVD and poster dealers. Most of the sellers were from around Milwaukee or Chicago, the furthest dealer was from Nashville.

I found some good stuff at fairly good prices. As with most record fairs, I needed to seek out the people who had reasonable priced records and were willing to deal. It is very easy to over pay at events like this. The last hour is usually when the best bargains are had.

I was very excited about the Troggs; Supergirl is a great song. The Hendrix bootleg is interesting, it is pretty beat-up but I only payed $3. I’m finding more people selling current reissues pretty cheap at record shows, I guess they aren’t at collectable status. The Justin Townes Earle and Wilco were $5 each. I’m already kicking myself for not picking up Radio Birdman Singles and Rarities LP. The Kill Dozers are a regional (Chicago) punk, heavy rock or early metal band from the late 70’s, I couldn’t pass up the cover. The worst part of buying records on the road is, I can’t listen to any of these at the moment.
