St. Louis Record Collectors Show Recap

On Sunday, my friend Tom and I ventured out in the freezing temperatures to go to the St. Louis Record Collectors Show. After paying our $2 admission fee ($1 off with a card or mention of Facebook), we started to walk around and get a lay of the land as this was Tom's first time to the show. I usually run into someone I know or at least recognize and this time was no different. I ran into Jim who works at Euclid Records and Larry who runs the 45's section at The Record Exchange. Most, if not all, dealers take cash and there was a mix of local and out-of-town dealers. For those people determined to get their money's worth and stay most of the day, the hall also sells refreshments and snacks.

I do not usually have an agenda or list when I go to a record show. I like to look around and see what surprises I may find. One seller was selling a box and a couple of stacks of 78 RPM records. These were mostly Swing music and Pop tunes from the late 1930's, 1940's and early 1950's. He was selling them for $2/each, but I could have taken the entire box for $50 and everything for $75 which roughly calculates out to about $0.50 cents per record.

I found another seller that had a table with mostly some LP's and 45's and some video games and other miscellaneous stuff. The guy was asking .50 per record on the 45's. I asked the guy if he bought and sold collections, but he just advised that he was selling because his wife had finally won the argument to get rid of some records. He is a collector as he mentioned he is not selling but "keeping his gold stash. However, he would be classified as your basic hoarder - at one time he must have bought everything he could find as he had a lot to sell! I searched through the bins and I found twenty 45's for the jukebox. None of these are rare, but most if not all are very clean copies of the records and most are still wrapped in their original paper sleeve from the original label. The guy was asking $0.50 per record. He had some picture sleeves, but most were from the 1980's and I did not find anything special. Tom found a bootleg DVD of the Guns & Roses St. Louis show where a riot broke out on July 2, 1991 at Riverport Amphitheater (aka Verizon Wireless Amphitheater) in which he attended nearly 20 years ago.

Here's my list of 45's finds: a mix of Rock 'n Roll, Soul, Pop, and Country --
The Allman Brothers - Ramblin Man b/w Pony Boy (Capricorn, 1973)
The Bar-Kays - Soul Finger b/w Knucklehead (Volt, 1967)

Put The Needle On The Record...

St. Louis on the Mississippi river by night. J...

Welcome to a new music blog, 3 Minute Record! This site will be focusing on the music scene in and around St. Louis, MO.

At 3 Minute Record we enjoy all types of music, but the site is dedicated to Rock 'n Roll, Indie Rock, Americana, Folk, R & B, and Soul while dipping our toes in Pop, Country, and Bluegrass.

First, we will be documenting the bands of the local scene performing original music. Second, we will strive to review shows of both local and national artists playing in St. Louis and the Midwestern region and include a listing of those upcoming concerts. The third aspect of the site will be to offer a listing of release dates and reviews of those new albums, DVD's, and books about music. Fourth, while reporting the general music news from the industry, our goal will be to sometimes dive deeper and feature an artist or music scene that may deserve revisiting. A final element to the site will be the occasional podcast discussing music, sharing a mix, or documenting the sound of a band in a live session.

If you enjoy the content please let us know.

Cheers!
