Love your setup. I, too, have a special unit built in my bedroom to hold all the 12-inch records. Yours is much more filled up, though.

Well, not today, but within the past two months, I'm looking through the LP's and some guy puts an album back, said it was in bad shape.

So, I looked at it, and it looked terrible. However, it was just scuffs, but an album by The Challengers I would have picked up in any condition.

Anyway, I cleaned it and it plays VG to VG+ !

Some 45's that I picked up over the last few months:

a German pressing by an artist called Marion, from some translators, it seems that the side I like is entitled, "Don't Cry At Our Farewell"
single by Rita Pavone, "Because of You (IIRC)
Ed Kookie Burns, "Kookie's Mad Pad"

I was away last weekend and picked up two copies of a rare record for $1 each,The Allan Sisters-I`m In With The Downtown Crowd/Give It Up Girl Quality 1841X .The Allan Sisters were a Canadian group from Calgary Alberta.I kept one copy and put the other on Ebay,both copies are VG++.So far it is up to $227.50 US. 30 Watchers and 5 bidders.One of my best finds ever,if not the best ever.Bought them at a record store I`ve been going to for years.
