It is better to give than to receive, right?
A young lady I know recently splurged on a vintage Technics stereo… receiver, turntable, cassette and tower speakers, with the goal of building a record collection.
Good idea, how can I help?
She’s been thrift store and yard sale digging a few times with some success, but… when we met her for record store day, she let slip that one of her must have albums, a Holy Grail, was Supertramp – Breakfast in America:
Today I found a pristine copy, cleaned it up and gave it to her. The wide-eyed look of awe was priceless! I hope she gets as much enjoyment out of it as I got digging for it… I hoped she’s hooked on record digging and I hope she finds a clean copy of Pearl Jam – Ten to repay me with.
If you’d like to help someone find their Holy Grail, there is a blog I follow devoted to just that:
Keep an eye peeled for others, you won’t regret it.
