Dammit Bill, if he shows up with a trailer, make sure he gets no further than the .50 cent room.

Bill, you guys are safe for now. I just check the social calendar with my wife and she has a family event planned for that weekend,   :nono: so unless I want to spent the month of Feb. sleeping in the garage I'm going to have to sit this one out.   :cry:
However, I do occasionally have to make business trips to Harrisburg, which takes me right through Allentown on 78, so next time I am coming that way I will have to leave time for a side trip.  aa

Oh boy, passing Cabelas and a good record store on the same trip, I could get myself into some real trouble. (Have you ever noticed that there are a whole bunch od jewelry stores right next to Cabelas? How many guys do you think have to make a stop there to make up for what they just bought in Cabelas?  :lol:)

Good luck at the show and find some good stuff so at least I can enjoy it vicareously.  ;)

Happy Hunting,
Tom

Thelonius in Action is my fav Monk side. Check out Rhythm'a'ning.  Round About Midnight is one of the best Miles records, when it was still "Fun" before cannon, said phillie-joe. On par with Kind of Blue musically. Good catch Gene

Oh, I just scrolled right and saw Speak No Evil. Joe Chambers is hot on that, and some pretty modern harmonic stuff for the time. Great spirit on that record.  :thumb:

Nice haul.  I'm doing well at my local crackhouse to pull down 5-10 lps at a time.
