What’s playing on Stella Blue today?
Simon and Garfunkel of course! Whenever I need to unwind, let go of some stress and reboot, I turn to Simon and Garfunkel.
Today’s mellow tunes from the gurus of calm come from Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, my favorite album. I’ve had some stress thats needed unloading, so why not at the Scarborough Fair?
I picked up this slice of peace at the Record Collector on Melrose Ave, I believe. If not, then at Counterpoint, however their collection of Simon and Garfunkel is seriously lacking. What they do carry is a rip off version in a flimsy sleeve, that my dad swears to high heaven is not worth dropping a cent. So if you are jonesing for this true love of mine, do yourself a favor and skip Counterpoint all together. At the Record Collector you will be greeted with kindness and knowledge. They do not have anything labeled, or grouped. You must ask Sanders (the owner) or his right hand man (who’s name escapes me) and they will guide you through a maze of thousands of records, directly to what you are looking for! The prices are a little higher, but the quality of their products and the extent of their knowledge makes it worth the extra 5 bucks.
