Record Fair Haul

This recent Austin record fair did not disappoint.

I only made it there for 1 day, but joined by Rene “the rock” Carlin and Armando “let’s make a deal ” Rayo, we perused and scoured the racks of albums until our fingers bled….well almost.

I spent $47, procured 17 albums and 1, 12″ single, that I used to own, but alas, like so many others, been lost along the way. Here is what $47 buys you in the currency of vinyl.

The Johnny Cash Children’s Album


Griff & Lock – Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Johnny Griffin Quintet


Battle Royal, the Duke meets the Count – Duke Ellington and Count Basie (no cover, have to take pix)

Sing Along with Basie – Joe Williams, Dave Lambert, Jon Hendriks, Annie Ross plus the Basie Band

I Ain’t no Bad Girl – Memphis Minnie


Blues Before Sunrise – Ray Charles & Solomon Burke


For the Good times and I Won’t Mention it Again – Ray Price  (no pix, have to take it myself)

The Divine Sarah Vaughan Sings with Margie Anderson – Sarah Vaughan


The King of Zydeco – Clifton Chenier

The Greatest!!  – Count Basie plays, Joe Williams sings standards

  1. Griff & Lock – Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Johnny Griffin Quintet gets my top vote, followed by Rock This Joint – Big Joe Williams,and The Divine Sarah Vaughan. The rest would certainly get spun as well. Nice finds.

  2. My fave for now is the Oscar Peterson/Nelson Riddle, followed by the Ray Charles and Solomon Burke. You just don’t get pairing of quality like those much any more. Thanks for stopping by!
