$34 total ($1 each except $2 for the two-disc Charlie Rich one) at some guy's house on the 1800 block of Redlands in Austin (which is a few blocks south of Rich Creek and east of Burnett). He was selling 10,000 album for $1 or $2 each; I just saw a sign on the street when he was driving. I only looked through the $1 room. He's there tomorrow, too, and for the next couple weekends; says he may eventually lower prices even more. Apparently he used to own a record store in town a couple decades ago, but the vinyl has all been in storage since the early '90s:

Just got back from Austin dude's place. It's at 1802 Redlands. Records are $3 on Friday, $2 on Saturday, $1 on Sunday. He told me he's putting out 3,000 more records each Friday for the next four weeks!!! He also told me some fun stories:
A record collector dude haggled him to go down on prices, esp. for some blues singer on King. Turned out the record sold for $1000 (didn't ask how much record collector dude paid for it...could've been $3).
Some guy (don't know when) bought an entire record store from a woman (in New Orleans?) for peanuts (few thou if even that). Turns out she had Robert Johnson 78s and autographed Presley Sun 78s. The purchaser gave her $400 extra to be nice.
He's into paper now. He knows some guy (and maybe it was himself..I forget) who has a bunch of press kits with photos of old country blues singers that date back to 1930. Who knew such things even existed?
He stays up until 5am weeding out the stuff he wants.
A dude asked for Hawkwind and Captain Beyond records. There were none (left, supposedly).
Went through about 80% of what he had there although he kept putting out more. After much sweat, hunger, and that godawful live Grand Funk Railroad record he was playing, I ended up with the below, $23 total (caveat - double records are $2):The Austin Christmas Collection First EditionThe Austin Christmas Collection Third EditionBus Boys: Minimum Wage Rock & RollChristmas Greetings Vol. 4 (with Vol. 5 wedged in alongside...on Columbia but has the A&P logo on the back)Country Girls (cheesy comp of Faron Young, Billy "Crash" Craddock, Del Reeves, etc. singing song about women)Cory Daye: "I've Cried (Too Many Tears)" (Blue Chip 1987)Neil Diamond: Love at the GreekFire Town: The Good LifeHot Tracks (Special three record set with one record missing. bought it cuz they're hard to find cheap and one record included the nifty "Attack of the Disco Queens: The 80's Hi-NRG Medley" and a Pet Shop Boys medley called "This Is The Pet Shop Boys")Jamming! Presents A New Optimism For the 80's (featuring unreleased and rare material by R.E.M., The Special A.K.A., Wah!, etc. Liners by Tony Fletcher who wrote for Addicted to Noise when I was there. Nice guy.)Julie London: Tenderly Yours (and selections from The Ted Comstock Orchestra)Lynyrd Skynyrd: Nuthin' Fancy (This is the only 1970s record of theirs I don't own and not only has purchase alluded me for decades but somehow I have never seen the cover of the damn thing until this very day! Nice bird flip on the back.)Major Lance: Now ArrivingThe Masked Marauders (pretty beat up but I've never heard it)M People: "Excited" (promo-only double-pak)My Sin: Beyond Good and Evil - (I was obsessing about this [dude?] on another thread but cannot recall why. One side originals, the other covers of "Moonlight Mile" and Stooges' "I Need Somebody") The Perfect Disaster: Asylum RoadMitch Ryder: How I Spent My Vacation (Finally! Couldn't find one to even download illegally)The Suburbs: In ComboTrackin' Up The North - KQDS 95FM (Duluth, MN comp from 1982 with The Replacements, The Flamin' Oh's, Crash Street Kids, Sussman Lawrence with a song called "Torture Me" written and performed by Peter Himmelman, etc. Inside there's a ballot to vote for your fave band. But this copy is sealed.)
And to top it all off, the first 12 customers today got a free (and HUGE) oatmeal cookie!!

Went back to the Redlands guy's house to see what 3000 albums he added this weekend; lots of them had probably sold Friday and Saturday, but I still bought $11 worth (everything was $1 today), and didn't even get a second copy of the Skatt Bros LP, though maybe I should have. (Though actually, it doesn't look that expensive on discogs, which is a relief.)
Anyway, $1 each:
Aerosmith Rock In Hard Place (Columbia 1982 -- believe or not, I've never had a copy of this before)Mark Andrews And The Gents Big Boy (A&M 1980 - ex-Joe Jackson bandmate w/ proto-Misfits haircut)Ellen Foley Spirit Of St. Louis (CBS 1981 - her Sandinista!, supposedly, with 9 of 12 songs written either by Tymon Dogg or her then-boyfriend Joe Strummer)Robert Cray Strong Persuader (Mercury 1986)Deep Purple Perfect Strangers (Mercury 1984 -- very sturdy looking inner picture sleeve!)Gringos Locos Punch Drunk (Atlantic 1989 - Rock City Angels cowpunk glam-metal-looking thing recorded in Helisinki, never heard of it before but probably Hanoi Rocks cousins in some way or other)Hitmen Torn Together (Columbia Canada 1981 -- probably not the Hitmen I was thinking of, who I think were Aussies; these guys are apparently Brits but at least look kinda tough-guy fake new wave)Savoy Brown Looking In (Parrot 1970 -- I own zero Savoy Brown LPs but this one looks extremely metal and badass so what the heck)The Sinceros The Sound Of Sunbathing (Columbia 1979)St. Paradise St. Paradise (Warner Bros. 1979 - quasi-super-group power trio fronted by Derek St. Holmes from Nugent's band, some song off this was a hit in Detroit that year)Wasch! Metal Goes Mountain (Strike Back 1989 -- recorded in Dusseldorf and looks very Teutonic)
Also, at a garage sale yesterday for $1, on CD:
David Lee Murphy Out With A Bang (MCA 1994)
Also got Mary Gaitskill's Veronica and Joel Whitburn's Top Country Albums 1964-1997 (harcdover, original price on back says $49.95) for 50 cents each at a garage sale. But those aren't records.

Well actually the guy I bought the C&C Music Factory tape from was also selling a bunch of Ozzy, Judas Priest, Scorpions, and Keel LPs from the mid '80s, but I wasn't really interested in those ones.

Today's Flohmarkt haul, averaging out to about a euro per disc:
* three Joyce Sims records which, sadly, don't do much for me* Janet Jackson's "Control," way better than I remembered* Barry White, Greatest Hits* Tears for Fears, "Sowing the Seeds of Love" -- includes "Tears Roll Down," a Latin-house track that sounds like something Luciano would play today* Midge Ure, "If I Was" - pretty dodgy, but I like the synth-pop cover of "Man Who Sold the World"* The Private Lightning Six, "They Came Down" -- Pulsinger, Potuznik et al doing weirdo electro from '96* Kurtis Blow, "The Breaks" (ZXY re-press)* Kyborg, "Swing" -- an early Raster-Noton* Bryan Ferry, "Kiss and Tell" -- total turkey* Donna Summer, "Sunset People" / "Our Love" * Joe Claussell & Chuck Perkins, "Jazz Funeral" (Guidance)* I.A.O., 93-95 -- weird, not great, lite jazz + ambient record about which I can't find any information* The Housemartins, "Caravan of Love" -- all acapella, don't ask me why I bought this* Soul II Soul, "People"* Heavy D and the Boyz, "We Got Our Own Thang"
One of the flea market dealers must have gotten his stock from a defunct label or distributor, because all the records were new, and there were dozens of doubles. Most of it looked like mid '90s trance, but I couldn't say for sure. Also, terrible water damage and mildew on a huge swath of the collection. I still can't get the smell out of my nose.

Not exactly $1 on these, but I've been looking for these damn things for so long that it's worth sharing... I found two of the five legendary Disco Inferno EPs (Summer's Last Sound and A Rock to Cling To) for $3.99 each. Two down... three to go.
Of course, all five are being reissued in a few months, per Ned's thread. But I couldn't pass these up in good conscience.

50 cents each, $3 total, Austin garage sale yesterday, all in weird (and maybe bootlegged) import versions from Okinawa, wrapped in plastic-protected paper covers with Japanese lettering added to the album art:
Ferrante & Teicher Midnight Cowboy (assume I won't like this much, but vaguely curious after hearing people rave about an R.J. Smith EMP presentation about them which I didn't actually see.)Gilbert O'Sullivan Himself and I'm A Writer, Not A Fighter (w/ "Alone Again Naturally" and "Get Down" respectively. Skipped the LP with "Clair," which hit I've never liked as much.)Charlie Rich Behind Closed Doors, The Silver Fox, and Very Special Love Songs

Ferrante & Teicher Midnight Cowboy (assume I won't like this much, but vaguely curious after hearing people rave about an R.J. Smith EMP presentation about them which I didn't actually see.)
I mocked F&T once in a Voice review. My parents thought Ferrante & Teicher were great. They went to see the duo in Hershey and Harrisburg. Probably the only reason, too, why they had a stereo.
The worst milchtoast piano versions of popular songs, movie and TV themes.
The right stuff to include with a library consisting of records by the Ray Coniff Singers, pop music for a listenening audience that inspired elevator muzak. Also great if you thought you might enjoy "Sing Along with Mitch Miller" LPs, the Sukiyaki novelty hit on 45 ...

Savoy Brown Looking In (Parrot 1970 -- I own zero Savoy Brown LPs but this one looks extremely metal and badass so what the heck)
This is Foghat with Kim Simmonds on guitar just before the former split off to make straight boogie records for the US audience. Lonesome Dave sings, would redo "Poor Girl" for the Foghat debut, I think.

Not a lot of boogie on it, though. Mostly brooding blues rock.

It's possible! Next time, say Hello! (I'm the short guy with glasses.)
$2 total, Breakway Records (which has moved to North Loop, excellent location!), today. (A skewed sample, though, since I also sold them a small stack of LPs and mostly indie 45s for $10 that hadn't sold in my yard sale yesterday, and they very likely got a better deal than I did):
The Buzztones En-cy'clo-pe'di-a (Metro-America EP 1984) (Ann Arbor label; Detroit-associated group I hadn't thought about for a quarter century and barely even did back then, though I might briefly have confused them with the Buzzcocks for a day or two.

Boppers (Mercury 1980)Shorty Long Here Comes The Judge (Soul 1968 -- a little bit scratchy but very cool LP cover)The Masked Marauders (Deity 1969. Real good condition, too.

Today's haul from a Berlin flea market includes Cameo's "Word Up," Big Daddy Kane's "I'll Take You there" and Steve Miller Band's "Abracadabra" (why not?), the Doobie Bros' "Takin' It to the Streets," some underwhelming mid '90s house records on Nite Grooves and Junior Boy's Own; two compilations of German birdsong, "Vogelstimme Unserer Heimat" vols. 1 and 2; and one absolute gem:
Rupie Edwards + various vocalists, "Yamaha Skank" (Success, 1974)
Really nice dub reggae featuring titles like "Doctor Satan Echo Chamber" and "Half Way Tree Pressure." Awesome.
Apparently the first single-riddim album, according to this: http://www.roots-archives.com/release/1863More info: "Slim Smith and the Uniques cut My Conversation for Bunny Lee in the late 1960s, in 1974 Lee sold the rhythm to producer Rupie Edwards who then made an album titled Yamaha Skank from twelve versions of that rhythm, the album was a first of it's kind. This is the opening track from the album which kicks off with the words 'Welcome to doctor Satan's echo chamber'."

There were more, including a few Russian records whose covers I liked, but I'm too lazy to type the rest. I actually bought so many records today that I had to buy a plastic satchel just to cart them home in. A good day at the market! Also, I have proof that it hasn't yet become overrun by hipsters, because the M.C. Hammer record is still there, three weeks after my previous visit. (I'm kidding... kind of.)

A while back I got Joe Byrd & The Field Hippies for a buck! Pretty beat... but it plays ok. And I sold a copy of "Da Capo" for $1 today. Same story.

Two summers ago, when I was working at a summer camp in Wisconsin, I picked up a three-movies-for-three-dollars pack (one dollar per movie) and never got around to watching the presumably terrible films: Texas Justice (w/ Heather Locklear), Sleep Murder (w/ Jason Priestly) and something else...Frank Sinatra, maybe?
Anyhow, just watched Texas Justice with a friend of mine and for a two-part, three-hour TV movie about trophy wives, murder, entrapment and hung juries, it's pretty sublime/hilarious.
Best dollar I've spent in recent memory.
