Tonight I’m doing something I haven’t done (but have needed to do) for a long time – sort through 45s to find stacks to take to the bin. For a year or two I’d buy any record collection I could get my hands on, thinking soon every stack of neglected vinyl would be carted off and run to the dump to make room in the basements of jazzy old folks who’d forgotten what a joy it was to listen to their collections. By this method I’ve amassed a ton of records, and unfortunately about half of them are trash. . . tonight’s a night to find how many I can pull out. . .
