Jelly’s Music – Honolulu

20120428-140108.jpg Holy crap this place has a lot of records...and comics, and musical instruments, and dvd's, and all sorts of fun things to geek out on!  I spent about three hours at Jelly's literally going through every single record that they had, with the exception of their 45 section because there were just way too many and I didn't see anything really solid in the first couple boxes that I went through.  Plus, I had such good luck at Hungy Ear Records that I just didn't feel like searching for 45's anymore.  I started with their regular bins, which I suppose might've been a mistake as those were the more expensive records. They had a really great Latin section, with lots of records from the Fania, Combo, and Discos Fuentes labels. While I'm not extremely familiar with all of these labels, I was able to pick and choose the ones that look pretty good, based on what I did know.  Jelly's has a listening station, too!  That made a huge difference.  I was able to take stacks records and kind of sift through what really was worth buying and what was something I can live without, based on sound and price.  After spending about an hour and a half going through the main bins I finally discovered the 45's section, which looked like this. 20120428-140144.jpg It was just too much for me to really go through after already spending that much time in the other sections.  I ended up going through the lower bins for the next hour and a half, which were all $2, and I found a few gems including albums from Raydio, Players Association, Quincy Jones, and much more. Somehow, someway I only ended up spending about $75 at the spot, closing out a great day of diggin!  I was hoping to pick up a last minute gig where I could play my new finds, but unfortunately that did not happen.  I had to wait a couple of days to get home and throw them on the tables in the lab.  I can't wait to share them with you at one of my events!
