Best Digging Story:
I was in Bushwick and passed by a thrift store so I popped in hoping to find records. Found one, so I asked the owner if she had anymore. She said humbly she had a few more in the basement but wouldn’t be able to go until the following day after she closed. I came back and we went. What I expected to be a couple crates of Christmas records was a building basement full of bangers. The only thing was that she wanted to sell the whole collection and not individual records. I told her my wife would kill me if I came back with a building basement’s amount of records. She laughed and agree to sell me a few. One of those was the Carlos Ramos y Su Orquesta Fuego which I later re-released under my Sociedad Records imprint. I paid $20 for that and like 5 more joints.
