Thanks wurlitzer1450...

Looks interesting, but I'm a long way from Hollywood now...

I used to be able to get there in less than 30 minutes ( depending on traffic and the early morning fog ) if I took Sunset all the way in.

It would have to be a pretty special run to get me to go back there, I actually despise what the ' developers ' have done to the place , especially people like the late Merv Griffin who destroyed Sunset and Vine with his ugly pink marble monster!*
(* Former site of Wallach's Music City and DOT Records next-door, then just south of the intersection, Sandi Stanton's Film City Recording studio )

I'm not against progress at all, and each decade since the 1920's, Hollywood kept changing, but for many of those years of the 1950's thru the 60's, much of the place remained ' intact ' ( with the exception of Pandora's Box, torn-down in the mid-60's )
Labels came and went, but the old stalwarts of Original Sound and Liberty were always there in the 60's ( not to mention the Capitol ' tower ' since 1955 when I first saw it completed )

Yes, it looks a bit interesting, and $1 each is a good price for LPs in a decent-condition, but I just couldn't bring myself to go there again for this type of sale.

Bear Valley Springs is a long way from Hollywood, but for now, that's okay with me.

I hope the person does well, and I'd be happy to know a collector or two found a few treasure within the lot, without the intention of sticking them on evil-bay after asking how much they're " worth "

Thanks for posting.

The photo does remind me of better days when I used to hit garage sales in the area ( the best ones seemed to be in the Burbank - Toluca Lake area )
