David Bowie Records!
One of the best things about working in a record store is meeting people who share your interests; not only co-workers, but customers as well.
The other day, the sweetest woman came in and asked if we’d be interested in buying some records. She said she was a Bowie fan and she had a box of LPs in her car. I told her I would be happy to take a look. When she went to get the records from her car I thought to myself, ‘There will probably be a couple of Bowie titles in a box full of filler records.’ Well, I was wrong. It was definitely a box of Bowie records. A series of picture discs, interview LPs and singles, along with die-cut records and soundtracks, every one in excellent condition. Needless to say, she made my day.
When I paid her for her records, she informed me that she was a huge Bowie fan. I asked her how she got into him and she told me she rented Cat People (on VHS), heard the Bowie track and was hooked. She’s been collecting Bowie records ever since. She was pleased with our offer and said she’d be back with more.
A week later, she returned with another box of LPs and a box of 7”s. I very excitedly jumped into the boxes and was blown away. These boxes trumped the last batch and proved her love and dedication to the Thin White Duke. To prove it even further she showed me pictures of her and the man himself. Needless to say, we bought everything and now we’re making this treasure available to you. I’m not gonna tell you what titles she brought, but I will tease with pictures of a small sample of the goods.
Happy hunting and don’t lag ’cause they will go fast!
