Melting Pot

Did I seriously buy all these records???

{This marks the final post of 2010 for Melting Pot, we’ll return on Jan. 3rd with a Breakdown of our Best of 2010 radio show and posts on the top reissues, vinyl finds, songs and releases of 2010, see you in the New Year!!!}

Last show of 2010 was focused on some of the best records I tracked down over the year. Most were from stores around LA, including Records LA, Atomic, Bagatelle, Amoeba, Record Recycler, As The Record Turns, and of course the venerable Groove Merchant in SF. Had a really productive Ebay season as well, tracking down a number of records I’d been looking for quite some time. Even with this haul, based on this pace, it will take me 30 years to get my collection back to 3,000-4,000 that it was at at the beginning of this century!  I think instead I’ll go for quality over quantity…Hope you enjoy the show, next week I take another look back at 2010, playing my picks for the best music released throughout the year.
