I am sure there are many TB users with record collections that rival their beer cellars...
Unfortunately, I got a turntable and started collecting records around when my first kid was born. Then I had another. So yeah... I wish I had built up that kind of record collection.

That said, hopefully no surprise... IN!


Seeing a ton of play lately on both counts; foreground, price and quality; background, quality, and my only rockabilly record. Love me some Rev.

fuck off.
Heh. Believe it or not, I really think of Weedeater as my "happy place" music. Those "fuck off"s that often accompany are fuck offs of joy.

Tonight's starting a lot saner, at least. Before the new arrivals...

Picked the background up years ago for $10 at a used record shop. German packaging, obvious not unique recordings, but cobbled together, high quality, near perfect condition LPs from John Lee Hooker (on now), Lightnin' Hopkins, Leadbelly, and Memphis Slim.

John Lee was and always will be the man.

At least one of the men.

Round 2 on Good N' You... And round 2 on the blues. Despite new records...

Digging through some back of the crate blues. Found this at Newbury Comics for $12. Possibly the best $12 ever spent at said establishment. Old school delta blues, the dude and his guitar.

These bluesmen... often entirely unheralded and unaprecciated by anyone other than their local fans... these guys paved the way for EVERYTHING THAT'S COOL.

Thanks for starting this, Cronkite11. Good fun.
