Put The Needle on the Record

Last weekend, Steve, Valerie, Kevin and I went to Kansas City so Valerie and I could attend a record show on Sunday. We’d been saving our garage sale money so we could add some new goodies to our collections. While the show itself wasn’t bad, it was the treasures we found at the Westport Flea Market that made the trip worthwhile. One dealer had about 3,000 albums priced at $1 each. Valerie and I decided to take the time to peruse them thinking we’d probably find some good album art, but not much in great shape. We were wrong. Once the guy learned we were collectors and were going to buy several LPs (or 47 in my case) he gave us a discount (75¢ each) and gave us access to his back room where he had more albums. There I found three Peggy Lee LPs in perfect shape, several Eydie Gorme’s and, my real find, a sealed copy of Francis Albert Sinatra and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Those albums were worth the final cost alone. Sunday, at the record show, I added two Cal Tjaders and a Stan Getz. Combine that with some great food, too much beer and a trip to the Gap and you have a perfect weekend in KC!
