Upscale Resale and Thrift [Lockhart TX]

Only an idiot would drive three hours south from Dallas to Lockhart for barbecue but that is exactly what I did.  I scouted a number of locations for vinyl but none panned out - all were out of business.  Ironically, I included Upscale Resale in that list as I was driving out of town when I swerved dangerously to stop by what was obviously it's newest location!

They did not disappoint with no shortage of vinyl, much of which was mid 80s R&B - a strange subgenre never before seen in bulk of this level.  That did not interest me, but a couple oddballs did: an early Gord album, and a Bob James 9th (which falls beyond the current 8 album threshold I am enforcing).  The RTF record is certainly not something I need - I own their effective discography - but I left it up top for the next person who stops in to peruse in the hopes they might broaden their horizons to one of my all time favorite albums.
