Saturday Scores at Omnibus

Posted by Travis Ritter on Sat, Mar 5, 2011 at 2:25 PM

Omnibus, the record/vintage store that lives in the hallows of East End, just unloaded a massive stack of LPs and 45s of all shades and stripes, and today at 4pm they're having a huge sale. I got a sneak peak of the goods last night, and left with a handful of hot cuts that not only were in good shape, but were priced ridiculously cheap (most of them were a buck!). Here is a sampling of the 45s I managed to get out of the door with before dropping any more coin on their cache of excellent impulse purchases:

The Troggs "With A Girl Like You"
b/w "I Want You"

Sam The Sham and the Pharoahs "Lil' Red Riding Hood" b/w "Love Me Like Before"

Curtis Mayfield "Underground", the clean b-side to a beat-up "Superfly" single. Seemed fitting to pick it up in a record store that was truly underground.

Other scores from my nine buck spending spree included Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra "Did You Ever?", a UK pressing of Donovan "Hurdy Gurdy Man" b/w "Teen Angel," The Intruders "Cowboys To Girls," and an original 1961 Riverside press of Cannonball Adderly's "Kelly Blue."
