On a mission from GOD!

I always savior my records, but so much more when the artist is deceased.

Early this morning several people close to Frankie Knuckles reported the man died yesterday. Knuckles died in Chicago from complications related to diabetes. He will be missed...

I bought my first Knuckles record back in 1991; this was the world-famous "Whistle Song". This song is still one of my favorites!

Frankie is now turning the tables in the sky. Rest In Peace!

I always buy vinyl that has a certain attraction to me.

Almost never do I buy a record for its sleeve... ALMOST NEVER!

Yesterday I did buy a record for its cover, a cover that also brings back memories. It is a sleeve that is produced for a certain record store:

Discostar on Damstreet 5-7 in Amsterdam, NL.

Years later they moved to Rozengracht, just a small distance from the old location.
This was one of the stores I used to buy my records at. The other stores were Attallos, Rhythm Import and Concerto.
