<< I picked up the Feigenbaum and Scott LP (Random Radar) at Amoeba in
Berkeley. It was filed in the Tom Scott section in jazz (as in Tom Scott and
the LA Express...icky!) . It was also 1 dollar (score!). >>
AMOEBA ( I'm writing about their HAIGHT ASHBURY branch ) seems to be an
excellent place for vinyl hunters. I was there in October last year and as
it's so big ( an old bowling I've been told ) I didn't know where to look
Close to the entrance was a section called "new arrivals". I started there
and the 3rd LP of the rack was the 1st THINKING PLAGUE ( the insect cover ),
an UNPLAYED copy, with a promo insert handwritten by someone from the band
saying ( just a summary as there are over 15 lines ) : " here is a sample of
T.P..........we hope to be available from a major indie
distributor.........hope to hear from you whoever you may be."
Price was $ 4,95 !
Just wanted to point 2 things :
- Those of you living in the SF area are lucky to have such places where
- Most important, I'm pretty sure the LP was NEVER played by anyone : a
symbol of the hard work done on promotion by the band at the time.... sending
copies to people who didn't even listen ......
A bit out of topic, as it was NOT a misfile ; AMOEBA just reminded me that.
