This past weekend we visited what many people in Montreal call the “Vintage Flea-Market” located at 7707 Avenue Shelley. We headed over there with the sole purpose of finding some vinyls to add to our ever-growing collection.
This flea-market is full of awesome hidden treasures if you have time to look, but considering we only got there an hour and a half before closing time we made a beeline for the biggest of the two used vinyls booths.
The guy has hundreds of used vinyls for sale, with prices ranging from $2-$20 for the 33s and only $1 for 45s.
You all know me well enough by know that I went straight for the Heavy Metal section in search of an AC/DC album. I was overjoyed to find For Those About To Rock, Flick Of The Switch and Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.
They all have some great tracks, but for me it’s not just about a few songs here and there when it comes to AC/DC. I absolutely love all their music. I can listen to them all day, any day. Of course, I couldn’t choose between them and ended up buying all three.
The Wife went for The Doors Greatest Hits, turns out she’s a big fan. She knew almost every song where as I only recognized one or two of them, the obvious one being Riders On The Storm. I have to admit after having listened to it with her, she made an awesome decision in buying that vinyl. It’s a pretty sick compilation.
Billy Joel was an easy choice for the two of us. He was such a talented pianist, lyricist and composer that you really cant go wrong in purchasing any of his albums. Glass Houses has one of my favorite tunes on it. It’s Still Rock And Roll To Me is definitely in my Top-10.
Just like Billy Joel, Heart’s Greatest Hits was an absolute no-brainier for both of us. This double compilation his just overflowing with ridiculously good songs. You can’t go wrong with songs like Barracuda and Magic Man.
All in all we were thrilled with what we were able to pick up. We walked away with 7 vinyls and it cost us $50. Not bad.
