Still more LPs
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:01:33 PM »
Today I had to be in an out-county and just down the street from the courthouse there's a local charity thrift shop.  I'll stop in from time to time to check out the LP selection. Today's haul:  another ten.  Cast albums for Guys and Dolls and Unsinkable Molly Brown.  Two RCA discs of music from Victory at Sea (I've like that music since playing it in high school band).  American folk songs by the Roger Wagner Chorale.  Misc. jazz:  Cakewalkin' Jass Band, Benny Goodman Sextet, Oscar "Papa" Celestin, Jazz Hall of Fame, Vol. 2 (misc. jazz & blues guys).  Lind Ronstadt & Nelson Riddle.

They've all just gone through the record washer and are drying.  None were pristine except the Ronstadt.

At a buck a pop, buying these is like buying scratch-off lottery tickets.

Hey Chris,

What do you have for a record washer?  Something you really like? 

Thanks,
Bill

It's a Spin-Clean, the inexpensive route to record cleaning.  It's OK; a vacuum model would be best.

I guess I'd better look on Mr. Google.

Thanks,
