If you've read the unspoken part 1 of this blog you would right now be thinking, "I wonder what she found downstairs in the bargain basement?" Amazingly enough, not a whole lot. Oh I found plenty of 80s compilations that I knew about and some that I didn't know about, but I had no interest in them mainly because I knew all of the artists on them. I wanted something fresh and uncompromising that I could cherish for years to come. That wasn't too much to ask was it? I also wanted to have some groovy tunes to bring back and play on my Saturday Showcases (hee!)
Now I'm not saying that 1UP Records is a horrible place to go by any means. It's a great store in a fantastic location and the people that work there are very helpful. I'm just going to assume they were not prepared for that type of brain exercise so soon after lunch. I was just about to give up hope when my husband and my stepson came romping down the stairs where I was and offered to try and help. At that point I had no idea what either of them could do and was away to say so when my husband turns around to see what I was searching through and puts his hand on a CD that I had probably passed over at least 3 or 4 times. Apparently in my stage of disgruntlement I tend to over look things that are staring right at me...(anyone else do that?) He smiles and says.."did you see this one?" and shoves this CD in my face.
I took it and smiled a bit, trying not to look too disappointed as I began to read the names on the cover. I get halfway through what I'm reading and I started to actually smile. I was actually thinking that this one was going to be a bust, but it wasn't. It was a literal gold mine. Okay it was a small gold mine, but it was a start.
