RE: Attention Washington, DC Area Audiophiles - Cheap Audio Gear on the Loose!

I really did not expect to find anything, but I went to the Bladensburg Salvation Army. The only interesting audio gear I saw was a cosmetically challenged pair of Polk towers with built in active subwoofer, a cute little vintage Yamaha and a very overpriced pair of RadioShack Mach II's. Either it all got bough or it never hit the floor.

So as not to make the trip a loss, I went to the record section. It was almost all classical, and mostly mono. Most of what I found, I already had, but I did find some amazing jems. I found 3 stereo Mercury Living Presence records: Fredric Fennel conducting "Sound Off (SR90264) and "Marches for Orchestra (SR90271, and Paul Party conducting Vive La Marche (SR90211). I also found a shaded dog - Piatigorsky/Munch/Boston Symphony, Dvorak Chello Concherto (LSC-2490), a blueback -Katchen Conducting Brahms (C56158) an Everest os William Steinberg conduction the Pittsburg symphony - "A Commemoration Symphony" by Stephen Foster and "A Symphonic Story of Jerome Kern". All of the records are NM+! I also picked up the CD, The Who, Icon. All in all, for this day and age, an amazing haul. I am glad I went!
