“And if you’re young, and you’re trying to build a music collection, why would you want to pay 10 to 15 dollars for CDs, or any other type of music, when there are millions of classic stuff out there that you can pick up for 50 cents or a dollar at a flea market, or three dollars at my store or other stores.” -Jerry Weber, Jerry’s Records
Yesterday Complex posted a really cool interview with Jerry Weber, owner of Jerry’s Records in Pittsburgh. I absolutely love the quote above, which is an excerpt from the interview. Not only does the quote epitomize the idea behind this blog, but it also reflects on the enormity of his business. With more than a million records at his store, it would be a crime to go in there with a closed or snub mindset. I can only imagine what it feels like walking into a store like that. Overwhelming, I am certain, but that should only make a person want to take a risk and pick something totally unknown from the dollar bin. The store has made it on numerous best-of lists, learn why by reading the Complex interview here.
