Jerry writes; “I owe my existance to good old american racial profiling. My parents both born in the USA met and married at an internment camp in Idaho. Once released they fled to New York where my sister and I were born spending our early years in Harlem. I don’t remember scratch from those days but I’m sure we heard hours of great music.
Our family migrated back to the west coast in the mid 1950s settling in Portland. My parents ran the Pine Hotel downtown off Burnside for transients, great rates at fifty cents a night.
My sister had a kids portable record player with red and yellow and black records. My dad was always screwing around with radio tubes, 78s and a soldering iron.
For many years I have been obsessed with Julius Hemphill’s “COON BID’NESS”. Side 2, “The Hard Blues”.
This is my first Night Owl Sale, I will bring 45s, 78s, lps, homemade “Recordio” records, cassettes, CDs, vintage turntables, posters, books and various vintage musical instruments. If there is anything specific you are looking for, I probably won’t have it, but email me requests anyway.”
