That Cash LP is awesome! Both the music and the sonics are really good.

I was between 0 - 10 for a while, but this month, over a hundred

today, I went to a local lp pimp to pick a couple of Richard Clayderman albums he was giving to my wife, and ended up picking these up as well

Last spring, at a town wide garage sale I bought out an entire collection of vinyl, about 110 records for $10. Most of it was (IMO) junk I never would have payed real money for but it's the kind of pop music some people like so what the heck, if someone stops by and wants to hear some if it, it's there. Most sounded like they'd only been played once or twice. It's the stuff some people drool over I suppose. Fleetwood Mack, Elton John, Chuck Mangione. No, they're not for sale. Funny, one day down in the stacks of records in my basement I found a brand new copy of Magical Mystery Tour. I don't think it's ever been played. I have no idea where it came from. Mostly I listen to classical music, occasionally jazz, sometimes "other." If someone took a poll of how many vinyl records do you listen to a month, I'd also be in the 0 to 10 category. I prefer CDs.

It's actually true. I hate going to these things. I get dragged to them all the time. This old lady had this reclining chair out by the curb. I went into her garage and asked her how much she wanted for it. It was also something like $10 (I couldn't get it in my car. When I got it a few days later it smelled moldy and musty from getting wet.) While I was in her garage I saw the records and asked her about them. She was moving to Florida, her kid had left them there for years. She just wanted to get rid of all of them and everything else or she would have thrown it away. If they'd been a buck apiece I'd have passed on all of them but for less than 10 cents???

Okay, here's some more of what's in there (I've dragged the boxes into my study from the next room where they've been sitting on the floor since June.) Linda Ronstadt What's new (I actually like that one) several Gordon Lightfoot (some aren't bad, most yeech), Carpenters, Sinatra, Simon and Garfunkle, Bachrach, James Taylor, Buddy Holly, Springsteen (Nebraska), Carly Simon, Carol King, Donovan, Neil Diamond, Mamas and Papas, Blood Sweat and Tears, Leslie Gore, Van Morrison, Cosby Sills Nash and Young, and assorted other 'stuff." For me it ranges mostly from elevator music to irritating. My sister asked if she could use them for disposable cake plates when she bakes a cake for someone. Quite frankly I admit I had a few of them already which I'd bought when I was very young and threw my money around carelssly. Nowadays, I'm much older and waste it with far greater thought ;)
