WOW!  A fabulous experience for both of you!  Great story!

Which Alison Krauss lp did you find?

Too Late to Cry.   Her first on a major (Rounder).

Without the autograph or Quiex it is a $40 album.   I think I would ask a C for it if I were tempted to sell, but I don't think it is going anywhere any time soon.   I have a thing for translucent (not colored) vinyl.

I picked up a nice bunch of jazz records at a local thrift.  They are all probably reissues from the 80s, in mint condition, still in shrink wrap. 
Complete Fats Waller vol 2. (two LP on Bluebird)
An evening with Louis Armstrong and his All stars (2 LP on GNP Crescendo)
King Oliver New York sessions 1929-30 (Bluebird)
Fletcher Henderson.  Hocus Pocus.  (Bluebird)
Giants 3 (Giants of Jazz).  A couple cuts each by Duke, Pops and Lady Day
Barrelhouse Boogie. (Bluebird).

While these are No Noise/digitally remastered LPs and not audiophile quality,  they are quite listenable.  I can't complain for five bucks.....

Best day for thrift records in a while.   With the sale this week these came to $4.61, but I couldn't say no when she asked me to round up, now could I?

On my way to an estate sale in Pleasant Hills yesterday  I saw a sign advertising a neighborhood yard sale in West Mifflin.  There were only two households participating and no records out.  I asked if they had any records and the wife sent her husband to the garage.  He brought out a full box on a dolly and I picked out about 30.  Among them
Duane Allman - Anthology Vol 2
Bruce Nebraska/Born in USA/Born to Run
Dylan  Greatest Hits Vol 2
Fleetwood Mac  S/T
Little Steven Voice of America
Beatles  Love Songs/Rubber Soul/Introducing (VJ Mono)/Beatles '65Early Beatles
Marvin Gaye Greatest Hits
Allman Bros Eat a Peach
L Skynrd  First & Last
Stones  Goats Head Soup/Sticky Fingers zipper cover
Culture Club Kissing to Be Clever
and another dozen or so.

I'm glad I stopped
