Music Store

The newest shop in town, Daybreak Records, run by former longtime Jive Time staffer RJ, has a lot of us record collectors excited. I went on opening day, last Saturday (and the day after!), and it was remarkable, all of it! The shelves were stocked deep with top-class used records, like, there were a LOT of quality records—deep catalog titles, not just the more common stuff. Oh, and there's a LOT of reggae on 45 in the bins! Beyond that, the walls are covered in rarities, but I was most excited to find a nice original Vanguard issue of the Peter Walker LP, "Second Poem to Karmela", a record I’d never seen in three decades of collecting. A friend also spotted some hard-to-find Pharoah Sanders, Tim Blake, and Ruth White LPs. MIKE NIPPER
