Toronto was a nice trip. Lots of great food, highlighted by the Neapolitan style pizza at Pizzeria Libretto.
All the great choices made it difficult to come back to the Albany area. Cosmos West(Pop/Rock)was a waste of time.
It was very overpriced. I didn't quite understand it, based on what they were offering. I never went around the corner to their jazz store, but I found out later that the Jazz side is quite good. I was told the rock side was an afterthought. This info came from another store owner, so I would think it's genuine advice. Rotate This (my favorite store name) was definitely worth checking out. Quite a bit of new stuff, with some used mixed in. JUNE Records on College had a decent selection of USED, probably the best I ran in to. Sonic Boom is a must too, but mostly for NEW. Their selection of used was in front, but not abundant. A very busy store, so I'm sure they buy and sell a lot of used. Play De Record was a little seedy, but I even found an LP there. In summary, I really liked SONIC BOOM and JUNE. I ran out of time, so I missed some of the others. There are a few on College Street, which is also a nice area.
