With a fair percentage of music junkies down in Austin this week, the competition just might be a little less stiff for scoring used gems at some of our fine local record slingers. It's easy to overlook, what with all of the flashy displays hawking new releases like Arcade Fire, Air and !!!. But, while trying to stay on top of the shit pile each Tuesday it's easy to forget about all those gaps in your collection that could be filled with some quality, yet inexpensive spackle. So before you start in with that fresh coat of glossy paint- take a gander in the Recent Arrivals used section.
Eli Anderson, current Crocodile assistant booker and former Sonic Boom employee, recommends getting there bright and early, because putting out a fresh batch of gently used discs "is the first thing you do after counting the till in the morning."
What are some of the best used records you've given a new home to?
UPDATE: Eli has a whole lot more to say on the matter via email, you might not ever buy new again:
