DJ Pres, the Old Man & DJ Jack the Ripper: Jaw Dropping digs!!!
JJB and i got our asses up at the crack of dawn for a rare weekend dig, by the time we got to "the spot" Pres & Jack were already on scene and digging. I snapped a quick shot of the pair with the elusive "Old Man" for posterity. It was cold and pretty dead. There certainly were a few weirdos running around but I will leave that up to Pres to tell you all about, but the old man had some gold & junk.... i bought both. A few things for the lady, some soul 45's she didn't have yet and some rock Lp's she didn't have, and a few for me as well. I bought a few "girlie" covers and some "Killer Psych" 45 gems according the the old man. (always the salesman) It was cool catching up with everyone as i haven't had a chance lately to dig properly, but such is the life of a caring father of 2 boys!!!
Drinks! for all my friends!
The Devil w/ his Lady Friends: I only roll with HOTTIES!!!
After some digging and breakfast we hit the trail back to Philly for the "Split Thy Skull" barley wine fest. Oi Vey!!! I guess we got there around 2 and left about 6 and after drinking some high gravity beers i made my way over to AKA music for a drunk record buying spree.... I spent way too much $$$ in a highly inebriated state!!!
