Austin Record Fair October 2013
As luck would have it, I had to be in Houston at the same time as the Austin record fair, so a 40 minute flight later, I got my second dose of Austin. This time it was only a fleeting visit, but I was very pleased with some of the finds, including this Fuzz Monster Bonehead classic by The Purple Sun.
The Purple Sun- Doomsday
Another nice purchase was this 1971 Stone Axe poster
Some more nice stuff...
Doug Hanners is as ever the perfect gentleman and host and although Austin caters mainly for the 50s and Soul/R &B crowd, there is enough (well tons) of the “other stuff to please a wider demographic. Tomorrow a 6am flight and if all goes well I will be reporting back from another location, hopefully with further finds
