Thrift Store Adventures: May 27, 2006, Goodwill, Pasco, Washington

The Evolution Of Mann

My dad made me a fan of Herbie Mann, as he was a fan. Through him playing Memphis Underground and Push Push, I would eventually listen to Mann on my own terms. I have some of his albums, keyword being some, because Mann recorded A LOT of records. His Atlantic work is what I prefer, but he also recorded for a few other labels too.

The Evolution Of Mann is a 2LP compilation released in 1972, and it looks like it was released around the time Mann's label, Embryo, would be closing shop.

It was nice to go to a thrift store again after being away for too long, and finding something as good as this. That, and the usual family church records.

New Music: The Wreckers

What kind of bullshit is The Wreckers? A new country super-duo with Michelle Branch and someone else. Okay. Pfftt.

Digging In The Magazine Box: RCA Victor 45's

This clipping was taken from the Steve Hoffman boards. Apparently all this time I've been going to thrift stores and seeing certain RCA/Victor 45's on colored vinyl, there was a reason for it. It wasn't so much a mystery as it was something unknown, at least to me.
