Going to a flea market tomorrow

It's rare that I find something I'm personally interested in at yard sales and flea markets, but it happens. The classics, if they were ever there, have usually already been picked up by someone else during the record piles' lifetime. But I often find obscure norwegian music in old vinyl collections here, stuff like old rock bands, fusion groups and so on that have largely disappeared. I sometimes buy those.

My (relatively new) vinyl player isn't very good though. It has a function where you can rip to mp3 which I do whenever I get rare stuff, but it pops and crackles I love vinyl for collecting and looking at and so on, but I don't use them much for listening.
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.
