When picking for records it is odd to me how many duplicates (or even triplicates) of individual albums come up. Some albums come up all the time… certain easy listening, Christmas and classical collections never fail to disappoint. And some artists are, lets say, generously represented… Barbra Streisand, Kenny Rodgers, Christopher Cross, Boz Scaggs and the like.
Occasionally, you’ll find two or three copies of a record not on the list above. I once found four copies of Marie Osmond‘s Paper Roses at a single thrift store! But finding multiple copies of a record you actually want? That is a rare day indeed…
Here are my two copies of 1964’s Getz/Gilberto:
One stereo, one mono, same day, same junk store, $1.00 each. I’ll spare you my Wiki-fact attempt of a rundown, this record is just plain awesome!
