Jewels in the dust

Man, I have been cashing-in on some record-digging karma lately. I randomly stopped by one of those sketchy old TV-repair places you see around Montreal. Tiny dark box of a storefront, shit stacked high to the ceiling, full of cigarette smoke. A surprised-looking owner, visibly annoyed to actually have to be selling something to someone.

A few choice dollar records - mint.
Bobbi Humphrey - Flute-In. Fantastic cover design on this Applause Records release.

Different Bobby, same label, same cover designer. Really smooth Bobby Hutcherson sound, gets deep, and better with each listen.

This one's hot. Silk was Stanley Clarke, Ronnie Foster, Ndugu, Tom Browne, Stanley Turrentine, Eric Gale, George Benson, Dave Valentin, Wynton Marsalis, Todd Cochran, Sammy Figueroa, and Manolo Badrena.
With an instantly recognizable cover from photographer Pete Turner - Who did all kinds of classic jazz record covers

Not bad for a few bucks.
