Midweek Secret Spot Dig

I got a call from my fellow diggin’ partner Prime Mundo. He said he had a secret spot for me to check out. How could I resist? He had already been there once, and when he sent me a photo via my mobile phone, I almost shit a brick. So I took off of my day job today and spent about 4 1/2 hours there. We only got 45’s today. I got a great variety of Funk, Soul, Jazz and Reggae. There were a few things I had been looking for, and a whole lot of stuff I wasn’t, but scooped up. We’re going back for the Lps soon. After I got done digging I stopped to see my neice and nephews, who were fascinated. Question of the day: What is a record?? They’re too young to remember cassettes, let along know what vinyl is and how it works. They’re eager to learn, and that’s what I like.

Here’s a few photos I snapped along the way:


Records..

and more records…

I am in Heaven.

  1. Ok, here’s a guess.
    Private residence.
    Somebody died.
    Looks like the deal of the century instant record shop for someone (Pres?) to fall into.

  2. Sweet find! How were the prices? I might have a spot you may be interested in, but it’s heavy on the LPs and 12″ and (possibly) kinda light on the 45s.
