8/28/2007 Dig Up The Roots

 

I went to a flea market recently and found 50 78's for $35.00 - I turned down the booth owners request for me to buy all 1000 plus though. Everything I played today, except the last two records, I bought at this sale. The music in this show ranged from country fiddling to Hawaiian influenced pap to some really hot jazz to what was supposedly comedy (Rural Monologue with Violin Specialty).

For me the highlight was finding 3 records by the Hoosier Hot Shots. One of the records was more a showcase for the vocalists (and the band making some $$$) but what great fun music. It's always an interesting process going thru someone else's collection, and seeing how obsession manifests its ugly head in a garage in rural Minnesota.
