Well, I thought I should mention that I had another very interesting haul from my local thrift store the other day (and yes, you probably wish you had my thrift stores...), but here goes...Some cool records, although there's a slight problem...The records themselves look (for the most part) very pristine, but it's the outside covers that could use some work...Some of them have a bit of mold and dust and mostly at the bottoms of the covers and records, but I think they're worth a cleaning...For example...
You see what I have to work with, right??? :-k #-o
