As I’ve probably made fairly clear in these pages, I spend a lot of time in thrift shops and used record stores. I am an inveterate bargain hunter. Also, I’m always looking for that gem-like needle in the proverbial haystack, that one record I never thought I’d see, in some unusual/unlikely place.
I’ve lived in three provinces in this great country, and have travelled lots of places besides, here in Canada and abroad, and I always, always look for the record/second-hand shops (that also sell music) in town. Never know when something I’m after will turn up!
But I have to say, that in all of those years, I think I can prove that Prince was wrong.
I have never, ever once seen a raspberry beret in any of those places.
