We have a few good ones here in Chicago but that's west of Ohio last I checked. Let us know if you want to venture into CST zone.
It's really up to my driver, Jeff, but anything is possible.
Western PA, Pittsburgh to Erie. Let me know and we'll roll out what passes as a red carpet around here.
Scottsdale, AZ is a quick 3 day drive and it's a dry heat.
http://www.recordcollectors.orgThe Pennsylvania Music Expo is hosted by the Keystone Record Collectors. It is held at the: Continental Inn, 2285 Lincoln Highway East, Lancaster, PA 17602 on the second Sunday of every month.
Keystone was me, Sal, hit the button a little early.
Hm.... I can't say I know of any good places to buy up records. I'm such a "record store guy," the end-dealer is the only one I really know, not the middleman where you could still make a profit...
Somebody call History Channel. This would make a great reality show, no? You find the records and then talk about the artists pro and con. Between stops you could rant about hipsters and whatever else you want to go on about from the passenger seat. I'd watch. It'd be a hundred times better than that "American Pickers" show where watching two lame antiques dealers haggle with hillbillies to save $10 on a rusty gas station sign is supposed to be entertainment. And then we get to listen in on their "bargaining strategy." Painful.Sorry, going a bit too far off-topic there... I know I've mentioned going through my vinyl with an eye towards selling it to you, Sal, and have made zero progress in that direction. Glad to hear you aren't waiting on me. Enjoy the road. Hopefully BW will get some dispatches from the countryside.
Not just records, KenD, but: http://www.vh1.com/shows/for_what_its_worth/series.jhtml
In NJ you must stop at Princeton Record Exchange in downtown Princeton [LPs, CDs, DVDs, 45s, Laser Discs, & Tons of used in all categories]. Also Vintage Vinyl in Fords[Woodbridge] NJ. Happy hunting!!
would love to host you while in Chicago area. Indy Cd and Vinyl and Luna are great stores in Indianapolis.The Exclusive Co in Milwaukee has small but great quality vinyl.would love to meet up with you.mauijim
I've got to put in my vote for Jerry's Records in Pittsburgh. While you're in town you might want to stop in The Attic also.
hey Sal got any room in the car? If you take a pick up , i'll ride in the back and read liner notes in the open air!!!!
Actually on the serious side ,the Jazz Record Mart in Chicago , run by the good old Bluesmeister himself(hope he's still alive and kicking ,but not certain),Bob Koester(sp) is a very cool place !!!! Hope the place is still up and running.
Thanks to all for your suggestions. I see most suggestions are for stores, which is great, but may not necessarily work for my ultimate goal, which is resale. Would love to stop by as many stores as I can, but would rather find a collection that is being let go as opposed to stores who may want $50 for a Zappa LP, if you catch my drift.Flea markets, friends dumping collections, thrift shops, antique shops with fairly large record selections....any ideas?
