Just leave your credit card with them.  So when they get more classical records they will just hold it for you and not bother posting that they have new records  :-({|=

NP for me. Now if it was jazz LP's I might be fighting Tom for a place near the boxes.

Unfortunately, no Allentown trips on the horizon for me. But I am kind of bummed about the weather tomorrow. Seeing as tomorrow is Fr. Chaminade day, Bobby is off from school and we had made plans several weeks ago to make out annual pilgrimage to Princeton Record Exchange. Much to my dismay, it looks like the impending storm will put the kibosh on those plans. As it is it is about a 2 hour drive from my house to PRX. Add snow to that and I am on the road for 6-8 hours round rip, which makes it a bit out of reach for a day trip. :cry:

As much as I prefer the LPs, good music is good music and when shopping in a used store you take it howover you find it. If it is something I like I would rather have a CD copy than no copy at all. And at $1.99 it is no big loss if I find an LP copy somewhere down the line.  :thumb:
