Philly AIDS Thrift Store

Post by Ernie11 » Mon Sep 22, 2014 6:47 pm

This is not a record store, it's a thrift store with some used vinyl LP's, CD's, a few cassette tapes and an 8-track tape every now and then. It's located at 710 S. 5th Street in Philadelphia, PA. Just go to Philly's famed South Street, find the corner of 5th and South, then go 1-1/2 blocks below South.

In my retirement, I have been paring down my large LP collection by donating some of them to this store. In the past week, I have dropped off the LP's listed below as a donation. I can't say exactly when the good folks there will have them priced and out in the bins, it's usually just a few days. I plan to volunteer there sometime in the future and will be donating more of my collection. I will post updates to this thread listing the LP's I donate. None of the below are of great collectible value, but might be of some interest to you.

This is not an album that I donated to this thrift store, just a note that they have a copy of John Fahey's Blind Joe Death album in a display case across from the cashier at the front of the store. I am not too familiar with this album, but I believe it is the 1967 version, and the album cover looks like this:
