  1. The Mosaics at Princeton may be high since I’ve never purchased any from them but I did purchase a Select for Justin and found the price decent.
  2. Ditching the receiver

    By record cleaner, do you mean a Spin Clean or a vacuum device?
  3. Princeton Record Exchange in Princeton, NJ has many, many Mosaics but they don’t ship. You will have to call them to find out. I may be going down there next week so I could always pick up something for you.
  4. Pm coming on Turrentine with Scott Never Let Me Go, assuming Dana doesn’t want it.
  5. This one received a lot of air play in my house when I was a kid.
  6. In Sunday’s New York Times, David Hajdu wrote that 100 years ago, Mamie Smith recorded a seminal blues hit, Crazy Blues, that gave voice to outrage at violence against Black Americans. “It established the blues as a popular art and prepared the way for a century of Black expression in the fiery core of American music.” A Song That Changed Music Forever
  7. Antone's records Mosaics

    Those prices are hard to beat.
  8. 32 Jazz and Joel Dorm was a godsend. Sorry the label is no longer around.
  9. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    What has happened to public decency in this country. When I was a kid back in the Stone Age we took courses on civics to inculcate in us shared values, democracy, getting along with our fellow citizens, etc. What happened to all that? Guess it was all a big lie (especially if you’re Black). Call me naive. Guess we all were.
  10. What Are You Watching

    An American Pickle on HBO.
  11. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    I can’t see how there will be NFL football this year although the pundits and sports talk stations are acting as if there will be.
  12. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    That’s just a fucked up situation. It’s one thing if a person doesn’t want to wear a mask, quite another when they go out of their way and commit an assault. I fear that if Trump is re-elected the sky will be the limit on cases and deaths.
  13. MLB Season 2020

    I know from having lived in Uruguay and Spain and stories that you don’t say something about a Latin person’s mother, unless you’re really asking for trouble. Even in jest saying something like “tu madre” is a recipe for trouble.
  14. It was the choice of smiley face that made me wonder. *** Although I have the cd, I picked up this LP at one of my estate sales earlier this year. Cleaned it and sounds good.
  15. MLB Season 2020

    I see Horace Clarke has passed away. RIP. He was a good player (him and Jerry Kenney) on bad Yankee teams and had the bad luck to play for them when the Yankees entered the wasteland.
  16. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    Hope she and/or you took it up with the authorities and hope she’s ok.
  17. Perhaps there are contractual issues to which we are not privy.
  18. The USPS SUCKS

    You can probably thank that hack of a postmaster general.
  19. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    Couldn’t agree more. Why people don’t understand that mask wearing helps us beyond me. Actually, it’s not. It’s politics over science. It’s predicted that up to half of the population may refuse a vaccine. I wish I could leave this country, I really do. What a hellhole.
  20. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    I’m not a fan of people who don’t wear masks but you just don’t throw coffee in people’s faces. Frankly, I don’t bother to tell people they should wear a mask. I’m not interested in confrontation and they’re not going to change their minds.
