Last Bookstore Is Selling Vinyl

Erroll Garner

The last time I was buying lots of vinyl, I was concentrating on classical music and soundtracks, so there isn’t much jazz at the Daily Mirror HQ. On Sunday at the Last Bookstore, I stocked up on Erroll Garner and Art Tatum. OK, I pretty cleaned them out.

One young woman was checking prices on the Internet as she went through the racks, oohing and aahing at the low prices. As we can tell young persons, any disc that’s only couple of dollars and doesn’t look like it’s been used as home plate in a game of street baseball is a bargain.

I would recommend to the store folks that they not display records in the windows – unless they want to see what hot sunlight does to plastic.
