LP's LPs update Sept 2014

New stock at LP's LPs, 2227 Dundas W.

LP's now stocks many new weird techno titles and house beats inc. Carl Craig, Lusine, Heinrich Dressel, Neil Landstrumm, Omar-S, DB-X... and many more.

Recently acquired a lot of classic rock, including the original RUSH album on MOON records. It's in fair shape, not a collector copy but a very rare find. Some rare northern soul and oldies. Also of course plenty of post punk titles and Canadian punk records like original No Means No and SNFU. Lot's of minimal wave and synth titles as usual. Many German imports.

A nice new addition to the shop is this record rack. It is not an ordinary record rack. it was brought here by a man who once ran a record shop of his own. He tells me this rack was in the possession of Ronnie Hawkins and once belonged to Wolfman Jack. Now, I don't know if he means the famous DJ, or the Wolf Man from Hilarious House of Frightenstein. The Canadian TV show. I tend to think he meant that one. Wish I knew. If anyone does, please let me know!

He tells me not to sell it. So, I won't. It is in a good place.

I gave my Dorchester a chance to play some old time Rn'B yesterday. A newly acquired volume of jazz & blues on original 10" 78's. They sound like magic. Count Basie, Peggy Lee, Les Paul, Dizzy Gillespie... many more.
