Bill Justis --Raunchy & Other Great Instrumentals on yellow vinyl. Topping the Billboard R&B charts in 1957, Bill Justis’ “Raunchy” is one of the most successful rock & roll instrumental tracks of all time. Having grown up in Memphis, Justis played an integral part in the development of rock music, working with artists on the legendary Sun Record Company, as well as recording music for himself. This collection of instrumentals pays homage to 1960’s era rock & roll scene of the south. Now the album has been remastered for its first vinyl pressing in nearly five decades.

Milt Hinton & Friends --Here Swings The Judge on white vinyl Here Swings The Judge is Milt Hinton’s first LP as a band leader, and includes intimate, private recordings featuring Ben Webster on tenor saxophone before his departure to Europe in 1964. The remaining tracks consist of dynamic studio recordings produced by Harry Lim, and feature prominent players such as Jon Faddis and Budd Johnson. These sessions range from the swinging “Blue Skies,’ to the slow, serene blues of “Blues for the Judge.” This is truly an impressive collection of recordings from the group of early jazz musicians.

The final Start Your Ear Off Right titles:
**Buffalo Springfield--Buffalo Springfield mono recording 180gram vinyl
**Buffalo Springfield--Buffalo Spriingfield Again mono 180gm vinyl
**Lupe Fiasco --Lasers 2LP red vinyl

Used Buying Policy Change! R.I.P. VHS & 78s

Hey kids! For those of you who haven't cleaned out the attic yet, well, sorry but we NO LONGER PAY CASH FOR VHS OR 78s.  Times they are a-changin', as you all know. You can drop them off, we'll take 'em and process them (and by "process" that often means "Dumpster"). But we no pay cash anymore.  They had a good run...time to say so long.

We still want your CDs (for now) ! and we'll buy DVDs and Blu-Rays and of course ...your old vinyl.  You may even maybe get some gumball change for your cassettes, depending on title and condition, as always.

Ugh. Nope. Dead format. RIP VHS



Goodbye kids stuff...

You're going to have to get rid of your Bellydance tape somewhere else!
