Overtime, LPs & a Dead Man's Hand...
Had to work Saturday. Six cups of coffee later and too tired to sleep, I took a spin out to native New Brunphis (AKA. New Brunswick). Pickins were slim to none, but I managed to dig up the following detritus:
Rhinoceros - Self Titled (Electra)
Spirit - The Family That Plays Together (Epic)
Generation X - Self Titled (Chrysalis)
Archies - Self Titled (Calender)
Paragons - Down at the Beach (Donna)
Mitchell Torok - What's Behind the Strange Door
While nothing earthshaking in the vinyl department, the most interesting thing I picked up on my weekend travels would have to be the genuine disembodied human hand I procured on French St.
Now before you go crying foul about my proclivity for grave robbing, know that these digits were procured through legal channels. It was one of those impulse buys you hear about, like at a supermarket checkout line or something. There I was squaring up with my dealer, when I saw it sitting in the window and just had to have it. It appears to be from a Victorian era medical skeleton. Apparently it came from the estate of a photographer. He even used it at one time as aphotographic study (see below).
Never a dull moment.
