In the past I’ve been critical of thrift stores using this kind of record shelving, but I have to give kudos to Find for their latest reorganization. Someone went to a lot of trouble to organize the records by genre (pop, classical, easy listening, children, soundtrack, etc.) and by a few select artists.
I approve of the Dymo tape labels and the sections devoted thrift store mainstays such as Roger Whittaker, The Mom and Dads, Heintje, and, of course, Nana Mouskouri.
Well done, Find, well done.
(PS. It would help me if you could add a Canadian Talent Library section. Thanks)
Spilverk þjóðanna: Ísland
Folk-rock from Iceland, 1978. On green vinyl. I got it to replace the green record that turned black in my “vinyl rainbow” window.
Denny Vaughan: Girls I Knew
Extremely rare adult conjoined triplets Marie, Laura & Phyllis.
Is it a painting if it’s made from pipe cleaners?
It’s all about the ladies
Henry Mancini: The Thief Who Came To Dinner
I feel like the designer wasn’t even trying (Mancini’s score is awesome, though).
The Staple Singers: The Staple Swingers
Cleotha’s outfit (above left) is awesome.
Playground maze? Kiddie pen?
A couple of months ago I complained about the new record shelves at Goodwill. Now look what Find did in their latest reorganization:
Hard to flip through, and I’m not even gonna bother bending down to the two bottom rows. What they had before was ideal – boxes on a tabletop. I chatted with an employee and she was well aware of the problem – I guess I’m not the only customer to mention it. Hopefully they’ll do something soon. On the other hand, the corrugated cardboard signage is awesome.
Mel Tormé: A Time For Us
Mel’s cheeky expression reminded me of someone. Didn’t take me long to figure out who.
