Record Road Trip Complete

I made a trip to pick some records with a few friends. We hit a few flea markets, antique stores, record shops and garage sales. Overall it was a great day and everyone found some good albums. I had a few takeaways from the day:

The Rolling Stones - Big Hits (High tide and Green Grass) (1966)

1) The combination of the Rolling Stones High Tide and Green Grass and a Traffic album cover equals $1200. —- Yes you are reading that right, I didn’t leave out a decimal point ($12.00). At least one vendor had a pretty good story why he felt it was worth that much, but I could not understand why a $1200 album would be smashed in a box filled with other junk. You learn new collecting strategies everyday.

2) If you start on a path, don’t give up too soon – there may be gold at the end. Two paths we took yesterday had some gold.

Here are the albums I picked up. It is hard to pick out a favorite, but the Gil Scott-Heron albums are great and are at the top of my list right now. I got a good deal on the lot of jazz, soul and funk stuff, so it should be fun to discover some new music. The other music in the colllection was really good, so I I took a chance on it.

The Velvet Underground and Roxy Music have been on my want list for a long time, so it will be nice to cross them off. And finally, the Springsteen bootleg is really good quality – I need to find more bootleg Boss.
