This, my 3rd yr, as usual waiting till noon to miss the lines, I began w RebelRebel, Bleecker, & Generation, where I spoke w Joe Belock waiting to DJ. Discovered a buzz-in shop on Jones, already o/o RSD stock on RSD. The mid-day Vinyl Appreciation Meet-up offerred previews & warnings about long lines at Other, which 2.5 hrs later was still too long. Ran into Kurt G at the shop a block below Other. The shop next to Kim's passed rumors that Norman's was moving to Wmsburg this summer &that Rocket Science would be closing at end of the month. The latter was o/o RSD stock when I'd passed by enroute to Kim's and looked a bit sparse as well. Academy was great &then another party.
I saved J&R for Monday afternoon

Crazy Rhythms! I also picked up some of those jazz '45s that Joe got from some warehouse in Newark -- he said they would've tossed them in the garbage. And they were 25 cents each, I was amazed when I saw them in the racks. Got one Dexter and two Stitts in the "New Trends in Jazz" picture sleeves, also three by Bird (also Savoy) and a Diz on dee gee. I worked a few blocks away at The Aquarian Weekly back in 79-80, so Crazy Rhythms took a nice bite oout of my paycheck.

Been listening, all morning, Just got to the keyboard--Leroy Anderson--perfect sound of a generation, when almost everyone knew the tunes. Even the kids & the parents could, at least tolerate these clever arrangments. I played in the school band, sax, & we played every Anderson tune published. Always tugs at the memories. One never hears these gems, except when you play 'em!
