Tiny rant, big score

So, the local Sally Ann threw away hundreds of records to make room in there...then doubled the price of the remaining ones. Huh?! You don't move merchandise that way, you silly thrift store! :p

At least they're still the cheapest vinyl around. They were 25¢ each, but are now 50¢ each or 3 for $1.00.

My best haul there was around 55 albums for $5.00. Some HUGE private collection came in (2,000+, I would say), including a lot of stuff that was used at a radio station and they just wanted to get rid of stuff. I showed up late and they were like 'ehh, whatever. Five bucks.' Got a few for free when I saw more outside, too.

Update, Dec. 9, 2017: Yeah, they've been $1 each for a while now, so I'm way choosier than I used to be. :/ The thrift store down the street still charges 5 for $1, but their selection is usually smaller and annoyingly displayed. Still, awesome pricing!

Is it really him?

THE Tim Curry?

 Why, yes, it is!

 Apparently, this was Tim's second album. "The LP was more rock-oriented than Read My Lips and mostly featured original songs rather than cover versions. The record included Curry's only US charting songs: "I Do the Rock" and "Paradise Garage".

Here are links to videos for "I Do the Rock" and "Paradise Garage"

Not my thing, but I'm sure it's someone's! ;)
