Psst... wanna buy a record?
Record stores may have folded, but fans of vinyl soldier on. Where to get their fix? Well, there's Amoeba, there are swap meets, there are Sing Along With Mitch albums laguishing at the Salvation Army. And this week, one vinyl fan took her for-sale collection virtual with Hollywoodland Records, a blog-slash-store. Prices range from $1 - $50, but most are less than $10. It's not a bigtime operation; in fact, you've got to live nearby to play. Sales are made by appointment/pickup only, no mail order.
We're not sure how much here is collectible, but we see that there's a Marc Bolan (T-Rex) interview picture disc, never opened, more than one Chipmunks record, some Tex Ritter, Tom Jones and the Singing Nun. It's listenable, for sure.
And some of the editorial is neato. The 1949 "Adventures of Daniel Boone" 78 description includes these lyrics:
The children screamed and the children cried, they love groundhog stewed & fried.
Hello kids, fat & thin, see the gravy run down my chin.
If you decide to get you that groundhog, could you digitize it and send us an MP3? We're dying to hear it.
