LP Lust: Los Angeles Edition

We had some seriously crazy weather here yesterday, though it pales in comparison to what they're dealing with in my adopted home state of Alabama. Tuscaloosa, especially, my home for 3.5 years, is a mess, as is quite a bit of the state. Obviously, my heart isn't in much other than gluing myself to the news, but somehow vinyl can always manage to make me smile, even for just a minute or two.

Here's the belated recap of my lp shopping exploits during my recent trip to LA, the spoils of which include a great haul from the legendary Amoeba, and some great finds from the weekly flea market at Fairfax High School.
