Alex Cameron's 2022 US tour is a short one - maybe it's still tough scheduling shows? - and it only contains one West Coast date, and that was in Los Angeles a few Thursdays ago, at the end of April. My wife and I made a snap decision to attend back in January when it was announced. We have some friends down there we wanted to visit, plus it just seemed like a good excuse to take a few days off from reality. We got in Wednesday afternoon and I made plans to check out the new Amoeba location Thursday morning. I took an Uber over there from our hotel and upon arrival was surprised at how nondescript it felt, but I think that's just in comparison to the previous building, which was ornate.
I first saw this original UK cover in a record shop in Salem, OR when I was probably 15, and it's been on my list ever since. I came across a copy in Portland a few weeks ago so it was on my mind again and this one is actually in way better shape than that one, so it all worked out. My heaviest purchase of the day for sure. This is a 1973 repress with red Polydor labels.
All-female soul outfit from Boston. This was in the New Arrivals and I just grabbed it on a whim.
