    Just had a great day "collecting" at the local Goodwill. We all list the great finds we take home, but after doing this for some time, I began to realize that no matter where I go I almost always see the same records that nobody picks up - thought I would start a list.

    Assorted Christmas records are always a given!

    Herb Alpert - various recordings - esp the "whipped cream girl"
    Shaun Cassidy
    BREAD (ugh...):thumbsdn:
    Jim Nabors

    what do you see??

    James Last. Or Acker Bilk what kind of name is that? It sounds nasty. I've never heard either one. They could be amazing musicians for all I know. :D

    Just about all of them actually. Whenever you get discouraged about modern pop music, just go dig through thrift store records. There's always been crap music.

    There are fans of this stuff out there- to each his own.

    But i'd sure rather see more titles than the ubiquitous Babs Striesand and Mitch Miller sing-alongs, personally.
