Melinda & I took the Boudeaus to both REI and Easy Street Records today. As much as I like looking around REI, sometimes evn buying a couple of things, I LOVE Easy Street. It’s one of the last remaining record stores in the area, a place you can go and actually pick up an LP, in vinyl or CD form, and get a “feel” for it, if you know what I mean. None of that downloading digital stuff here.
When I was younger, records are what I spent my money on. I regularly hunted for disks at the local record shops and sometimes bought the hard-to-find ones via mail order. Over time, I amassed quite a library (as opposed to a collection – don’t ask me to explain the difference), and was quite proud of it.
So when Manon said she wanted to find a vinyl copy of a recording to bring home to Romain, I knew where to go. From the looks of today’s photo, we were successful.
