Score! Abandoned vinyl in Montreal

Ah, signs of spring in Montreal:
Folks are wearing shorts when it's 5 degrees above freezing; All the frozen dog shit that's collected over the last six months melts on the same day.
And people chuck stuff - glorious stuff - onto the sidewalk:

I've found a lot of good records on the street over the years, but never a score like I found this afternoon.

This shit is *mint* and obsessively well organised. They're organized by label, CBS, Capitol, RCA... The guy wrote the date and location of purchase in pencil on each sleeve. Freaky...

I'll have to edit the best tracks and do a mix, there's some great stuff here:
Sylvester, Chic, Odyssey, Blondie, Eddy Grant, weird french disco, Philly Intrtl All in original colour sleeves
Instrumental of Rockwell "Sombody's Watching Me" on Motown, some tight Quincy Jones productions too.
A Francois Kevorkian Remix of Kraftwerk Tour De France, Little Louie Vega mix on Tommy Boy from 1988. There's a quebec produced 45 here from St-Leonard that could almost be Air...
