My Doppelganger’s LP Collection

Oliver and I went to the Pinch Penny Fair on Saturday (an event my mouth insists on calling the Pench Pinny Fair).

In amongst the tattered cast-offs of the cultural intelligentsia — toasters, Thomas the Tank Engine books, plants, grappling hooks, PDP-11 microcomputers — were a couple of boxes of 33-1/2 RPM long play records.

And in one of those boxes I found a collection of albums that could have well been my own collection, circa 1987. It included Solitude Standing from Suzanne Vega, Love Over and Over from Kate & Anna McGarrigle, and even a couple of Loggins and Messina albums. Freaky.

If this happens to have been your record collection, kudos on your fine taste.
