Give it a spin
Operation Ivy - Energy (original pressing) Sold yesterday
Buyer - unnamed service industry worker
The record store is slowly selling my precious vinyl collection with disturbing swiftness. I priced my albums fairly and fairly high. But the best ones keep selling. I'm circumspect about it. On the one hand, I am selling out my cultural background of irreplaceable time-capsule-esqe analog media of memories. They also will probably be worth a lot more than even my high prices. Then on the other hand, the boy's milk doesn't grow on trees.
Have no fear! I am still spinning the inventory at Marks. Tonight even!
Don't forget to support your local record stores. I think Inertia will be back when the tour is over, too. There is a bike recycler working on a shop in the building and I hear the poetry is taking off.
All of these things are made possible thanks to a benevolent landlord.
