Well, Saturday was declared Record Store Day, so I couldn't let that go by unnoticed. I used the opportunity presented by a nice spring day to drive down and scope out the Princeton Record Exchange (recent NYT article). After weighing the merits of various records and discs, I went with an all vinyl purchase: Dr. Ross - His First Recordings; Ahmad Jamal - The Awakening; Leroy Carr - Blues Before Sunrise; Roosevelt Sykes - Hard Drivin' Blues; Shirley Scott - Satin Doll and Blue Flames; Billy Boy Arnold - More Blues From the South Side. Anyone else celebrate the day accordingly?
