    It will be great. I'll drive 2 days to buy. Every dealer locked and loaded. I hear overseas buyers will be there big time.

    Anyone go to the Buena Park Record Swap Meet this past weekend? I was really looking forward to going but wound up spending the Sunday changing out a dead receiver for a new one in my rig.

    I blew it off. I smelled something in the air about Covid and SoCal by some dealers and store owners. Maybe next year.

    I made it Sunday and it was packed.Got there early at 7:15 and the line to get in was around the side of the building.But the line moved fast and everyone got in. Good amount of sellers but not all tables were taken. Picked up a few decent Records at pretty good prices.My best find was a Pink Floyd UK Harvest Meddle (A-7 HTM/B-6 HTM) + Goodbye Cream UK Polydor 583 053 (A/3 B/3) Will be back next month.

    Who told you that? I read about the exact numbers, what they paid for the land and the building on it and what they sold it for. You don't get the tens of millions they got for an empty old building. They owned it lock stock and barrel. Pretty sure there was no need for a gofundme page.

    Were they $40-$50 each? Condition? Covers?

    Yes they were a little over $100 for both. Meddle is in Vg++ condition. Cream is in better shape a M-. It's nice just to get back into the swing of things a little bit .

    Has anyone gone to any of the pop-ups that Egon runs at Rappcats? Are they worth checking out?

    I miss the Pasadena record swapmeet every month. Back when it was good, it was unbelievably great!

    They stopped the Pasadena show by the flea market? Same as Buena....you'd fight with the dealers elbow to elbow. It was great 30 years ago....I'd run out of $ just with Bagatelle's 45rpm table.

    For Jazz collectors in the So Cal., L.A. or Fullerton, Orange County area: White Rabbit (old name Burger Records) just got quite a nice collection of original Jazz Pressings from a collector that was just admitted to a nursing home. Records for sale ranging from $50 -$250 most 50'S + early 60's titles.Miles Davis + John Coltrane just to name a few. I would guess there is between 50 - 100 Records.Just was down there today so don't know how long they will last.Just thought I would let people know in case there is any interest. Store is located in Fullerton.
