I haven't been to Montreal for the longest time but Beatnik Records, Aux 33 Tours, and Cheap Thrills are very good shops and was able to find music genres I'm looking for, mainly metal and punk.

Agreed about The Turning Point as I go through their CD sections and managed to get some really awesome finds. Their newly arrived LP's, particularly sought-after titles, tend to get picked through extremely fast but I think their prices are very good, IMHO.

I hope the Ottawa show was good for somebody here this week end. I ended up in the hospital with a nasty dental emergency and missed RSD 2018 as well. I am less 3 teeth and on soft food for a while. There may be more coming out too. Apparently there were multiple abcesses and a fever to boot. Not fun. I will have to shoot for the October show and Black Friday. As for my Christmas binge, finally paid off, JUST! Oh well, I am home now and will reacquaint myself with my turntable tomorrow when my neighbours can't object too loudly.

Went to local 1st annual record show sunday morning.Was held in the parking lot of drumshop.A couple of record store owners brought stuff out and some other collectors brought out a nice selection of all different genres of music.There were 5 or 6 of us there when they opened it up at 8am,totally casual,no pushing or shoving to put up with,everybody getting to know each other and having a good time talking music,people trickling in and out until noon when they shut it down.Their talking about doing this 3or4 times a year so that would be cool.I even managed to buy a few albums,King Crimson"Red",Sammy Hagar"Street Machine" Return to Forever"Where have i known you before",Starcastle"Citadel",Maynard Ferguson"M.F.Horn,Buddy Rich"A Different Drummer"and Zebra"3".Looking forward to the next one.

See what I tell you guys! These things are addictive! Go to a record show, people! It's time well-spent!! =D>

Nice finds, by the way, Progman...You will often find stuff at the record shows that you thought you'd never see, are hard to find, or have been on your want list since like forever! :D

OK, guys...If any one is interested, I ended up attending the latest rock swap the other day...Probably the third or fourth one I've been to...and again, it didn't disappoint...John and Miranda were there, as was my go-to guy Joe, but more on that in a second...I was actually out earlier in the day visiting one of my favorite new antique shops and bought a cache of these 80's buttons...All real vintage originals and no reproductions! Take a look! :D

44155
44156
44157
44158
44159

Nice, eh? :D

According to the shop owner, these things are bound to go up in value and I was thinking of possibly framing them all somehow on a denim canvas...They all came off a vintage shirt, too! :-k

I also found this odd one...and I remember Dana Carvey's impression of him...

44161

Anyway, I had a record show to go to, but instead of showing you what I got there, I should probably show you what I DIDN'T buy...Lemme tell ya, I felt like a kid in a candy store, and when you see the following pics, you might understand why...A dizzying, dazzling array of goodies! 8) If you're a soul, funk or jazz fan, you may recognize the next few pics...Even if you're just a music fan in general, check these out! These are all random pulls from the stacks...Incredible stuff! #-o

Let me know if I missed anything good here, too... :wink:

44175
44176
44177
44178

Here's one of Stephanie's earlier LP's...

44179

Some space age jazz...

44180

And then, this iconic one...

44181

Followed by...

44182
44183

And then, Robert Palmer's first group...

44184

A very cool soundtrack from The Godfather...

44185

Some sweet soul...

44186

And even THIS thing...

44187

Check it out...

44189
44188

More jazz...

44190

This must have been during Little Richard's turbulent period when he wanted to quit show business for good...

44191

Look at the tracklisting...

44192

And there were 45's, too! Here's one from Ivy Jo Hunter, who wrote (and co-wrote) countless songs for Motown like The Four Tops' "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever" and Martha & The Vandellas' "Dancing In The Street" (later covered by Mick Jagger & David Bowie")...

44193

Even the Queen was represented...

44194
44195

After all, this IS Detroit! :wink:

We have some Kenny Burrell, too...

44196

And another Detroit label I had not heard of...

44197

This one's for you, Tink...

44198

Or maybe it's THIS one! :lol:

44203

Or it could be this cassette tape, too...Another odd find in the stacks!

44204

Here's one from Jon McLaughlin...

44199

Or...ummm...

44200

How about some political memorabilia now? Here are a couple of Reagan-related rarities...

44201
44202

Some albums were still sealed, like these...

44205
44206

Have you heard of the band Piper? :-k

44207

Apparently, Billy Squier was a member...

44208

There were newer albums, too...

44209

...but before I get too far here, I must stop...

44210

...and show you what I ACTUALLY bought! :lol:

First, though, take a look at the place...A lot of records to go through, for sure! :D

44164
44165
44166

Even my man Joe had some great discounts! =D>

44167
44168

Lots of deals to be had and I bought a few of them, so here goes...

Here's a great album from the late Terry Callier...

44211

And since we've been talking about Nat "King" Cole (on the 78' thread), I picked this one up cheap, as I didn't have it...

44212

I also picked up some jazz LP's...

44214
44215

That last one features all the great session men like Lee Ritenour and Ernie Watts on it...

I found some cheap albums, too...If any of you are 5th Dimension or Glen Campbell fans, you might recognize the name Jimmy Webb...Here's an album of the man doing his own songs...

44216

I never had a decent copy of this album, but even though it's a little beat-up, I wasn't gonna argue for $3.00...It's a jazz classic, for Pete's sake! :D

44217

I also like to collect Beatles-related stuff, so I was thrilled to find this one... :mrgreen:

44218

Then, we have a man who needs no introduction if you like odd records...

44219

I mean, look at this! Anyone who writes songs like "Duet For Violin And Garbage Disposal" and "Wyatt Earp Makes Me Burp" automatically gets my vote! =D>

44220

Look at the instruments used, too! :lol:

44221
44222
44223
44224

I also decided to go in a folkier direction this time around and when I saw these three albums from Donovan, I thought I would give them a chance...They were cheap enough, too...

44225
44228
44230

I recently noticed that Linda Ronstadt's "new" album, her first LIVE album ("Live In Hollywood") has been gaining some traction...It's a collection culled from an old 1980 concert she put on...

But, I've been wanting to get into her earlier stuff, so I picked up these...

44226
44227

I also picked up this fine album from Melanie Safka...

44229

But, I'm a soul fan at heart, so I had to add these to the collection...

44231
44236

I had Puzzle's second album, but I needed their first one...

My man John also recommended this one...He had it on repeated listens at the shop and loved it! =D>

44237

I also have a copy of this one, but with a very different cover, so I got this "alternate" version...

44234

Of course, soul, jazz, funk, folk and pop weren't the only genres I picked up...How 'bout some country, too? :-k I have to thank my dad for introducing me to ol' Possum here...I couldn't resist picking these two up, as I didn't have them and they're classics! 8)

44232
44235

And talk about your "Modern Sounds In Country & Western Music", I had to buy this one from "Uncle Ray", although it's something a little bluesier than the norm...

44233

And I can't believe I didn't have a decent copy of this one, but when I saw it, I thought I'd give it another chance...Stellar condition, too! :D

44238
44239

I bought a couple of 45's, too...I like to collect odd TV themes, and I couldn't pass up Al Hirt doing the Monkees theme! I mean, who WOULD???! :D

44240

And then, here's a later one from The Spinners...

44243
44244

But the piece-de-resistance was this one...I'm a huge Lonnie Liston Smith fan and to find this one, especially signed by the man, was like finding PURE GOLD! Peace and love, indeed!! 8)

44213

Cool, eh??? 8)

Now, records weren't the only things I bought...I bought a few more buttons...Being a Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye fan, I had to have these...

44160

CKLW and WJZZ were classic radio stations in this area and are still fondly remembered! :D

Of course, those were NEW buttons...Look at the shiny back...

44163

As you can see the old ones have a lot more rust! :wink:

44162

I also picked up some cool stickers...

44242

Something to add to one of my turntable covers possibly... :-k

Of course, I had to stop into f.y.e. on the way back...Some things never change! #-o

44173

Although I didn't buy any, they still had lots of records! 8-[

44174

And although I am a Bob Ross fan, I didn't know these things existed...Wow! :shock:

44169
44171
44170

Crazy, eh? :crazy:

Makes me wonder what "happy little trees" these guys are smoking... :-k

And trust me, I had plenty of positive energy without needing to drink this! #-o

44172

Oh well...

After all that, I think I'm gonna paint myself into a corner and just enjoy some music to beat these winter blues! \:D/

If any of you have any more thoughts, feel free to add them here...Otherwise, I hope you guys have a chance to go to a similar show near you...Trust me, if you're a music fan, you won't be disappointed! If all else fails, you'll meet some great people and talk music! What's not to love about THAT??? :D

Those look like some great finds vinyl master! 8)

It sounds like a fun day all around, just checking out all the cool records and other finds.

I like the Jimmy Webb LP. I know he did some work with BJ Thomas and they even shared that same hair style. He also did some stuff with Art Garfunkel but thankfully he didn't share the same hairstyle as Art!

I'm still looking for that Al Hirt Green Hornet LP, and maybe some day I will find it at a reasonable price too.

The buttons are nice finds too and will look great in a frame as you suggest. =D>

I always liked the Spike Jones records. I got a kick out of reading the instrument list :lol:

Freddie Hubbard, Red Clay highly recommended. I have an original CTI LP.
