Nov 8

Here are the eight albums I purchased at this year’s WMPG records sale (for $2 each!):

  • Robert Palmer – Pressure Drop
  • The Doobie Brothers – Minute By Minute
  • Yaz – Upstairs at Eric’s
  • Laura Nyro – Eli and the 13th Confessional
  • Fleetwood Mac – Fleetwood Mac (1975)
  • The Waterboys – Fisherman’s Blues
  • David Bromberg – Demon in Disguise
  • David Bromberg – Sideman Serenade

There were a few albums I decided not to purchase, like some Tom Rush, Kenny Loggins and live Genesis.  I did not find any Randy Newman lp’s I didn’t alreadyown, which was disappointing, but I was very excited to find two David Bromberg albums I didn’t own.  Overall, a sucessful record sale.

On the bike ride home, I stopped in to Novare Res and had a few more bottles.  I’m now at 184 out of 200 for the Uprising.  There are two people (that I know of) ahead of me (in addition to the four who have already finished).  I estimate that I’ll be done by Thanksgiving.  I’m really excited!  It has been a very elightening and rewarding journey thourgh all sorts of new beers.

Also: good news regarding the Trappist event at Novare this Tuesday.  Even if you can’t pony up the $60 to take part in the Trappist beer tasting that night, you can still go and enjoy a few fine bottles of beer.  The tasting will be taking place in the side room (sorry fans of darts and leather couches); the main room will be open to the public.  Perhaps I’ll see you there!
