What did you get? I miss my life in Chicago, Lakeview was (I hope still is) such a nice neighborhood to spend a day-off browsing thru second-hand music stores...

jean michael jarre

Some albums were 3 bks that I scored and was amazed at the quality
I lost so many in my house fire alot of prog rock.
Some of which are selling for 600 bks
Had alot of fun ,I got there at 7am and there were already people snagging lps.
I scored pretty good
I have never been to such an event before so i was a little dazed, I arrived at 6;55 am it started at 7am there were already people selling.I wondered around while people setup,and plucked through the albums by the thousands.At a couple points i found it to be hilarious and somewhat of a turn off at the pushy behavior people had ,squeezing in and blocking people from looking.There were moments that grwon men seemed very childish.I did score about 75 lp some japaneese press alot of uk press and all were original that i bought..I was out and back having the breakfast buffet with my family by 10:30am.
Ya i would have enjoyed that myself,I got my share of dimsun and some good sushi for dinner sat .
There wasn’t any audio gear there at all,just viynl, cassettes ,dvds and cds. I didnt even notice anything other then the albums.I was stoked over the vintage prog rock a few guys had..I will email or text you a little more info on it if you would like,,’
I heard it will happen again in november ...I will most likely attend., get yourself healed up !

I was very lucky as a child my older sister dated a prog bass player,The first 8tracks i got as a 8-9 yr old was zepp2,atom heart mother,banco and songs from the woods.She also gave me darkside and wish by 10 .Eloy and camel were considered normal music as a youth..Hope that ansewers your question.
