Disk Union Shinjuku – New Vinyl Section

I dropped by to see the newly expanded vinyl section of Disk Union Jazz in Shinjuku (3rd floor of the building right next to the main jazz cd shop) More pain for my wallet! The room is much larger than the previous space and way easier to move around in while browsing the various racks. I picked up Baby Face Willette’s “Stop and Listen”, Hank Mobley’s “Roll Call” and Jackie McLean’s “4,5 & 6″ for just under ¥3000 (just about US$30). Obviously that was narrowed down from about 40 albums that I wanted..
