Re: [ARSCLIST] Record Store day
> Yeah,but can you buy soul Lps that book at $100.00+ for five bucks,like on eBay ? What sort of selection do they have of pre-stereo classical records,do they have either on Lp or 78 ? Do they sell much old ska and calypso on vinyl ? Can you go in and be pleasantly surprised by finding some Lp by some great 60s rock band from South America,you had never heard of before ?

I was at Princeton Record Exchange on Saturday and they have
beefed up their LP stock since my last visit there about 6 weeks
ago. They had a group of special "Record Store Day" vinyl issues
by various rock groups to mark the occasion - if they had had a
special vinyl issue of, say, Irving Aaronson, I might have
purchased it. Their biggest draw, to me, are the budget CDs -
thousands, in all fields, especially classical and vintage jazz.
