The Philadelphia Record Exchange

Vinyl to the Core

The Philadelphia Record Exchange hosted a block party celebrating it's 30th anniversary. This Fishtown business is an important source for those seeking most any genre of music on vinyl records. The shop in itself is like a musical walk down memory lane and a reminder of how record album art was at it's pinnacle.
The all day party featured the music of The Strapping Fieldhands, Aye-Aye, Purling Hiss, Monkey 101, Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band, Watery Love, Rosali and Wasted America.

Here are some photos of Dixy Blood and Ben Vaughn performing to a revolving crowd of more than 200 people and a look inside the store.

The Little Sparrow


The Words of Love

It is crazy that I am able to love you
That I am able to love you sometimes
Sometimes, I would like to shout

Because I have never loved
Never loved like that
That I can swear to you

If you ever went away
Went away and left me
Left me forever

It is certain that I would die of it
That I would die of love
My love, my love
___

It is crazy what he used to say to me
As lovely words of love
And how he used to say them

But he has not killed himself
Because in spite of my love
It is him who left me

Without saying a word
Nevertheless, about the words
There were so many of them
There were too many of them

{Verses 1-4}

And so it is that today
These same words of love
It is me who repeats them

It is me who repeats them
With so much love
To someone other than him

I say the words
Because, about the words
There are so many of them
There are too many of them

{Verses 1-4}

Deep down it was not you
As it is not even me
That says these words of love

Because each day your voice
My voice or other voices
It is the voice of love…

That says the words
More words
Always words
The words of love
___

It is crazy that I am able to love you
My love, my love

If you ever went away
It is certain that I would die of it

It is crazy that I am able to love you
That I am able to love you… out of love
