Hungry Ear Records – Kailua, Honolulu

20120429-103734.jpg I heard from a couple different people that if I was going to be in Honolulu I should definitely check out Hungry Ear Records, which is located in Kailua.  It is a relatively small shop, but very well organized with high quality, good condition records.  This calls for a little bit of a higher price but nothing drastic.  I started going through their jazz section and found quite a few really good pieces for about $5-$10 each.  Then, I found a small mini crate of funk and soul 45's below the main bins.  I combed through a couple of them and they all looked interesting, and then I realize that the whole crate was good. I ended up buying practically the entire crate which was about fifty 45's.  Did I mention they were all a dollar each?  I'll post some of my finds later... 20120428-135356.jpgThe owner, Ward, and his wife were mad cool.   We started talking about jazz records. They were okay with me taking pictures of the place, and told him I would do a little write up about my digging excursion there.  It's really cool to meet record store owners who love music, and are quickly open to geek out on music with you.  I felt very welcome there! 20120429-103715.jpg
