After being burned at Estate sales that are estate sales in name only I’ve decided that my new favorite sub category of sales are now “moving sales”. They rarely disappoint, don’t hire outside people to run them who want a cut of the profits and if you get there late enough you can get deals. I found one this Thursday which in itself is rare to find and weeded out the weekend shoppers who work. This sale had 4 vinyl tape cases full of 8 tracks with the majority on the disappointing Readers Digest label but the last one has lots of 70s cheese in the form of K-tel’s Disco Nights Vols 1 and 2 and an artsy Lennon /Ono unfinished music tape, that’s almost as unlistenable as Metal Machine Music. It’s nice that Yoko is still carrying on the tradition of warbling incoherently into a microphone the only reason I ask is why?
My favorite of the bunch is the double tape titled the Rollerboogie soundtrack that is more of a period piece that combines the fad of disco and the roller skating craze of the mid 70’s. For every Saturday Night Fever and Thank God It’s Friday soundtrack we have a gem like this and that horrible Can’t Stop The Music tape. I’m now looking for Skatetown USA to complete the holy trinity.
