Last month I went back to the flea market and came up empty. But today I re-visited, and picked up a few LPs. The first vendor said $4 each and I picked three records which he let me have for $10.
CSN&Y "Deja Vu"
Jethro Tull "Aqualung"
Carol King "Music"
I was thumbing through a stack of LPs when another customer pointed me to a certain vendor where I purchased 8 records for $10. I did make a big rookie mistake as the KISS "Destroyer" record actually had one of the two KISS "ALIVE" records inside. I pulled the record out to examine it, but failed to notice it was the wrong KISS album lol.
Beatles "Magical Mystery Tour" (even had the color booklet inside)
Cheech & Chong "Los Cochines"
Chicago "Greatest Hits" (new in shrink wrap)
soundtrack "Saturday Night Fever"
The Who "Who Are You"
Stevie Wonder "Songs In The Key Of Life"
KISS "Destroyer" (wrong LP inside)
KISS "Alive II"
I found another booth the records were $5 each but these seemed to be in nicer shape. But I had my hands full and made a trip out to my vehicle to unload previous purchases. I make my way back to this vendor and start to pull a few records out, when the guy told me that all the records were sold. Later I see all the records behind his booth with a guy going through them I chatted him up a bit, and find out he's a dealer and he had agreed to purchase 100 albums at a discounted price I did not find out what kind of a deal he got.
It's fun going to antique malls and flea markets with something to look for. I'm certainly not finding any vintage baseball cards lol!

I had about 1000 albums. I sold most of them a few years ago. They took up so much space. I have several hundred singles still. Most are from the 60's. I recently bought a little stereo for about $30 from Wal-Mart and it plays just fine. Is it as good as the system I had in the 80's with the giant speakers? Nope. But, I can't hear worth a crap anymore anyway, so what's the difference?

I'm still picking up records when I see them. Today at the Flea Market I picked up 28 records for $40 (about $1.50 each). Low grade records that I remember from back in the day. Mamas and Papas, Bad Company, Chicago, Elton John, Beach Boys etc etc. I also remember owning this crazy record by "David Peel and the lower east side"

Then from another dealer who actually had his records organized, Beatles "Revolver" and two Cheech and Chong records for $20.

Smile You guys always motivate me....

After reading this thread, I pulled out a large bundled stack of old albums. They had been bundled and ignored for a few decades. There use to be more, but I donít know what happened to them. I haven't bought an album since the 70's, nor have I owned a turntable. Just havenít thought about these albums until today.

I began looking through the stack. The first three albums I'd ever purchased back in 66 were there. I began reminiscing, when, what, where, as I went through them. There were also few in the stack, I didnít remember owning.

I started cleaning each record, repairing sleeves, and jackets; contemplating purchasing a turntable, and how I would set it all up. My mind then wondered back to my three, or four other active projects. Another project! I donít think so.

My Albums have been re-bundled nicely, and pushed to the side for another day, or maybe decade.

My brother was a mobile disc jockey in the 1980's (and still is on occasion) and still has all of his records. He must have about 60 milk crates full of albums.

He was an Elton John fan and has every LP album and single 45's along with many bootleg albums.
