Finding our next home took a bit longer, but we think we have the perfect Denver house, for us. We close in mid July. I can't wait to get all of the records back on the shelves!
In the meantime, we are doing the temporary extended-stay hotel housing, and I'm having a blast exploring all of the local thrifts and record stores!
Less than 24 hours after we checked in to our short-term accommodations, I got back into the record diggin' game. First stop, visiting my Denver Record Convention bud, Austin, at Recollect Records.
1255 Delaware St, Denver, CO 80204
After taking in the fantastic Denver Art Museum, the walk over to Recollect is easy peasy, and makes for a fun Sunday afternoon.
Recollect is, by far, the cleanest record store I have ever entered. While I love getting all dusty and dirty, going through unsorted boxes, there is something to be said about leaving with your purchase, minus sneezing and immediately needing a shower. Dare I say, there is a elegance about this place. A nice glass of wine would be completely appropriate here, while rummaging through the neatly sorted selections.
Austin saw me coming, and directed me right to the Colorado vinyl area. There are $3 local LPs in the back, while the higher dollar, but very reasonably-priced, state-made albums are located in the front left bins of the store. While my ever-supportive, but non-record-collector hubby sat in one of the comfy chairs, I got down to business.
This store did not disappoint. I walked out with a grand total of 20 Colorado albums! Ohhhh yeah, I plan to be a regular.
I already have plans to highlight several of these new finds on this blog, as well as play several of these on the radio show (UPDATE: new Elk Bugles shows are in production, now, and I will also have some cool news, about a SECOND Colorado vinyl show, coming soon, on KGNU - stay tuned).
