Saw a signed copy of STRICTLY PERSONAL today
Mar 30th, 2005 at 11:47am
 
I visited Amoeba Records' store in Hollywood, California today and I saw a vinyl copy of STRICTLY PERSONAL that was signed by Jimmy Marinos.  It was addressed to "Virginia and Theresa", and the album in question was originally a promotional copy sent to DJs (not meant to be sold in stores).  It sells for $1.98 these days (with Jimmy's signature, it should be worth considerably more than that).

you should have picked it up.   legit signatures or not, the album itself is worth $1.98!

I was sorely tempted.  You can't argue with the price, and it's a genuine Romantics relic from their heyday (with Jimmy's signature to boot).  The only thing that stopped me from doing it was the long cashier line (didn't feel like standing in line for 20 minutes to buy a $1.98 album). 

If I'd bought it, however, I'd probably also have to spring for a working turntable somewhere.   Smiley

Having a working turntable is a great investment.  For me, it's like turning on a time machine every time I use mine.

Oh Ken you reallly should go back and wait the few minutes to grab the album.  I know I for one would have waited to grab such a priceless item (IMO).

I've bought a number of (used) albums which I haven't even had the opportunity to listen to, due to a lack of a working turntable... But, since they add to my collection, I'll pick them up, regardless! Smiley

I agree-- go back and snatch it up before someone else realizes they might have something they can sell on Ebay for a profit!
