Where I find new (old) music: Part 8 - the used record store
I met an out-of-town friend today for lunch who was visiting Toronto for the first time. We met at the Queen Mother Cafe on Queen West and he had walked past Kops Records on the way there and made a comment about stopping in after lunch. I hadn't been in Kops for a long time and quickly felt comfy surrounded by very famliar album covers. I do have a turntable set up at home, but only really use it for nostalgia trips now and again, so I no longer buy vinyl. However, slipping through the bins I quickly found one of my old favourites that I'd forgotten about. No I didn't buy the album, but I did just buy it online.
