Did you know that last Saturday, April 18, was Record Store Day?  Seattle’s 10 best could hardly wait.  In the afternoon I managed to get to the best of the best – Bop Street Records on Market Street in Ballard.  There was a steady stream of customers and a vast array of records from which to choose.  I came away with two very different gems.vinyl records 003    a jazz album, Stan Getz and J. J. Johnson  at the Opera House          vinyl records 002  sacred music, the Choir of St. John’s College, Cambridge  singing compositions by Poulenc and Peeters.

A few years ago when Bop Street Records was in its old location on Ballard Way and I was exploring Ballard on my own, I used to go in there quite often.  Then the store moved up to Market Street and I faded away, not going in to browse so often.  But on Saturday I went in for  “old times sake”.  It was so nice to go there again – it was like a homecoming.  I’ll go again soon!
