I did manage to drag myself up to the Ozark Empire Fair Grounds on Friday morning to peruse the dollar album selection. However, there wasn’t much to choose from. I don’t know if they’re running out of album donors or if the collection had been cherry-picked in the first couple of days by dealers who’ll post said albums in Relics at $4 each for me to look at and reject later.
At any rate, I did find 13 albums. Which matched the amount of cash in my wallet, so I didn’t have to write a check. It’s called financial self-discipline. Look it up (I did).
- Son of a Preacher Man Nancy Wilson
- Lush Life Nancy Wilson
- Chartbuster Ray Parker, Jr.
- Italy After Dark Cyril Stapleton and His Orchestra
- Brass, Ivory, and Strings Henry Mancini and Doc Severinson
- Make Way For Dionne Warick
- Hit Boots Boots Randolph
- At the Movies Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme
- Amor Eydie Gorme and The Trio Los Panchos
- Jackie Gleason Presents Rebound
- Wild Flower Herbert Laws
- The Best of Sammi Smith
- Cha Cha Charm Jan August
I actually had to put some down to make it to 13, but a couple of them looked a little scratched, and I put back a couple of Pete Fountains’ works because I have a bunch that I don’t listen to that often.
Still, it ran me out of protective Mylar covers as it took my collection over another hundred mark, and it keeps me from overrunning the existing storage too much more, but that’s another story.
