For years Tom Haydon owned and ran a rare book store in California. People selling books often have records too, and Tom ended up with a huge collection of historic blues and jazz records. After moving to Portland he decided to try selling them at the Night Owl Record Show. Tom’s table was mobbed. Many diggers found that rare country blues or Jelly Roll Morton album they had been looking for. Tom will set up in the same spot again, in the alcove on the left side of the back room.
I just talked to Peter Kihara. He is pricing up new finds now for the Night Owl Record Show. Peter always seems to have endless boxes of quality records in most every catagory. He will have 2 tables jammed with raers in the front of the hall. Check it out, nothing but quality vinyl.
One of the most popular Night Owl Record Show sellers is Tony Brown from Spokane WA. Tony’s Spokane store, Unified Groove Merchants, is legendary around the world for it’s large stock of the rarest of rare groove, soul, jazz, rock and lots more. Look for Tony’s table on the far wall near the DJs.
Erik Beats made the move from Spokane to Portland a number of years ago to increase his visibility as a beat maker. Erik is always buying records, and will bring a box or 2 to sell. Find him sharing Tony’s table.
