Confessions of a Record Fiend, Pt. 3

A couple weekends ago, Human Head Records in Bushwick was having a sidewalk record sale. 25 cents a record. I woke up early, caught the train and met up with my partners in vinyl crime, Nikki and Daryl. I brought three tote bags, just in case, you know, the store didn't have bags big enough to hold all the records I wanted to buy.

Good thing I brought them.

While I should pat myself on the back for not using all three bags, two of them were filled, and that was just about enough to break my back. If had I had filled the third bag, I wouldn't have been able to carry them all home. In all, I got 57 records for $13, and picked up one from inside the store for $4. I just started going through them, and so far there was only one dud, a Jimmy Smith album had the wrong record inside the sleeve, and the record was more scratched than I thought. Oh, well, it was only a quarter.

If you're ever in Bushwick, head over and check out Human Head, amazing selection, very cool dudes that work there, and they even do in store concerts. Hell, why didn't I swing by today? Might have to head over tomorrow.
