Continuing the hunt for cheap records to feed Andy’s free record player sickness, we scored big today at Goodwill.
- Peter and the Wolf
- Sha-Na-Na (2 disc set)
- Jackie Gleason – Music for Lovers Only*
No shit, Jackie Gleason. Sheriff Buford T. “I’m gonna barbecue yo’ ass in molasses!” Justice. And not only did we find the whole album in great condition, we found a 45 of it as well. What are the sick and twisted odds? Andy insisted we needed the 45 for decorative purposes. I think he was high on mildewed cardboard.
Sadly, I haven’t been able to listen any of these gems because it turns out Andy broke the damn needle putting away the 45 adapter yesterday that he ordered on the sly. I told him we were not spending more than .49 (at a time) on anything for this free item. But he must have been all flush with birthday cash and totally ignored me because I understand there’s a new needle arriving in the mail any day now as well.
*In Jackie’s defense, Wikipedia tells me that Music for Lovers Only (his first album) still holds the record for the album staying the longest in the Billboard Top Ten Charts (153 weeks). POW! Right in the kisser!
