MUSIC, MUSIC & MORE!!
arrivals, a sampling:
MAYER - Where the Light Is, Live in L.A. 2 CDS
Every Record Is A New Release
RIPPED RECORDS - a
REAL RECORD STORE at
Trader Jack's in Bridgeville, every Saturday and Sunday.
In the last few
weeks I was reminded of vanishing youth and persistence by two
events. Pittsburgh's independent listener supported radio station
WYEP celebrated its 40th Birthday on the air, and RATHER RIPPED
RECORDS a week earlier became 43 years old in its latest incarnation
at the TRADER JACK's Flea Market in Bridgeville. Besides being able
to sell music from all eras and styles in person, up close and
personal, I still occasionally reach out to the world through the
ubiquitous internet sites, RRR is on www.discogs.com,
with different items on each as we continue trying to update the
myriad lps, cds, 45s, DVDS, VintageTee Shirts, Flannel and Hawaiian
Shirts, books and posters that 64 years of collecting have spawned.
(oh yeah been buying 45s since 1950). Anyhow, if in the lovely burgh
of Pitts, drop in to the Flea market inside building F as usual,
every Saturday and Sunday and check the goodies.
Some great local
stuff available, Jupiter Vinyl a retro acoustic folk duo, and the Nox
Boys, a psych punk group of youngsters on Get Hip and of course we
have some Cynics, Joe Grushecky and more including a few vintage Pork
the Torque collections for sale on the premises.
Got some rare live
cds of Bowie, Tom Waits, Dr. John the Kinks, the Stones, Pink Floyd
& the Who in trades recently, going out fast.
Flea Market hours
are 9:00 (8:00 when I haven't been out carousing Friday night to at
least 1:00 pm, often later. ....email is firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have any questions. Phone is 412-253-3445. If coming to
Pittsburgh, come on down to the flea market and say hello.
We take Visa,
Mastercharge, Discovery and American Express.

Very nice articles
by Scott Mervis of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and one by Andy
Mulkerin of City got us off the ground running. Since then the lads
and lasses of Lawrenceville have been coming by to welcome us, say
hello and shop for bargains. After a holiday go round, we have
settled in quite nicely.
The East End's
BULLETIN MAGAZINE featured RATHER RIPPED on its cover and with a
great article inside from Wesley Davis and a picture of me on the
cover. Thank you very much, hope we can help the continued growth of
the Bloomfield, Garfield, Lawrenceville areas.

.Our history starts in a small shoppe on Euclid Street
in Berkeley in April 1971, after our founder quit running Leopold's
Records (once the largest independent record store in California).
Joined by partners Richard who instituted the Dedicated
Fool Mail Order serving our soldiers in
Vietnam, as well as record lovers all over America, and David, a
retail clothing man, RatherRuss and team built a small haven for
music lovers in the early 70's, RATHER RIPPED RECORDS, when Berkeley
was cracking with Creedence, Joy of Cooking, Eddie Money, Alice
Stuart and so many more.....to be continued inside.

RIPPED RECORDS was
built with eclectic music fans in mind, those who can listen
to Eric Tingstadt, and Pearl Jam or Tony Bennett, or Dr. Dre. Like
most of the world that thinks for itself, Ripped makes its own
choices and ignores the blatant overexposure of the same corporations
and political ideals over and over. We think that we and you are
becoming a vanishing breed. But not so fast. This is our tribute to
you and those like you.....Thanks for stopping by.
If you liked what you saw, please tell a
friend how to get here.
