Let's set the scene, LP). Just before AM on March 16, McCune swings by my apartment in a Zipcar, a red Mazda hatchback—he's not buying just ultra-rare stuff for Permanent but also perennial favorites to restock its used-LP selection, so he'll need that hatchback space.
It's still dark out and Logan Square is practically deserted as we head toward the Eisenhower for a serene trip west soundtracked by Eno's Music for Airports. We get to the Best Western just before six. The show is mostly in a big, drab banquet hall filled with rows of collapsible tables, only about half of which are set up—dealers are still shuffling inside with boxes, bringing the cold air with them. McCune starts flipping through rows of records and quickly gathers an armload of rock LPs.
He passes on the self-titled debut by UK prog band If, which has a silver cover that always catches his eye. It's not a bad record, but every time I see it I think—gasp! Govi has been running record fairs sincevisiting shows around the midwest to recruit dealers. This hotel in Hillside has hosted fairs since the late 70s, and Govi has held his here since —he says it's now the largest regular vinyl show in the midwest.
Buyers travel across state lines too, and Govi says some come from Canada, Europe, and Japan, which builds Hillside's reputation. Govi has had offers to move the show to a larger venue, but the hotel sits right on the Eisenhower, east of Interstate and west of Route 12—he'd rather not move.
Around 60 people turn out for the early-bird hours, which end when the show proper kicks off at 9 AM. Dealers fill the banquet hall, a smaller space across from it, and an adjacent hallway; some have mini turntables so customers can hear the merchandise.
A few folks are selling CDs, cassettes, and even eight-tracks, but the vast majority of the stock is vinyl. Early birds spend the most money per capita, Govi says, and from what I can see most of them are middle-aged white men who must have a lot of storage space at home—shortly before AM, I see a guy headed for the parking lot, slowly and carefully dragging a four-wheeled orange metal furniture-moving cart heaped precariously with LPs.
Most folks here are racing the clock and the other early birds, but McCune, who started attending the show with Barresi inhas buying down to an art.
He checks each piece of vinyl for scratches and warping and determines if its price is far enough below its resale value—a record has to be "great for the store," he says, for Permanent to pay more than half of its eventual sales price. He first came to Hillside in fall There's also a trick to planning your route from table to table during the early-bird hours: "You're gonna know which dealers are open for business and the ones you need to wait for.
Some dealers have stellar reputations, and early on McCune gets a great spot near one that many early birds seek out for hard-to-find, rare, and expensive stuff. The dealer opens for business, and within ten minutes his boxes are picked over. Govi says his dealers get their stock all kinds of ways—about the only thing they have in common, judging from the ones I talk to, is that they won't go on the record with a reporter about their methods.
I have plenty of fun, friendly, nerdy conversations with dealers, but once I mention this story, every single one of them asks not to be quoted.
I guess truffle hunters are pretty hesitant to tell you about their favorite spots too. Thankfully Govi isn't so reticent. He says the most common way dealers get their stuff is by buying up record collections from ordinary civilians looking to unload them.
Whatever he finds that he knows will sell ends up on his two tables at the Hillside show. Dealers also buy records from each other—in fact I see one snap up a zany-looking private-press record by Jersey prog outfit Crossroads called Lights in the Sky.
I had my eye on that one, but I snoozed and lost. McCune can dig quickly and effectively, and he's good at adding up prices in his head as he goes, so a dealer can't overcharge him let's assume by accident by eyeballing a huge stack and guessing.
He can haggle, and he knows which easy-to-find titles Permanent's customers reliably buy, as well as which rarer records justify the expense. But the other ones—I don't know, I guess after you've been doing it long enough they just sort of reveal themselves. They kind of have a faint glow or something.
By AM McCune's messenger bag and arms are full of records, so he heads to the car to unload them. Because I'm new at this, everything has a faint glow to me—all the crates and cardboard boxes filled with thousands upon thousands of LPs, all the discount signs with their promises of unknown treasures—so when LP) head out on my own, I'm like a kid with a sweet tooth and a wad of cash in a candy store the size of a soccer stadium.
Some of the dividers are marked with "genres" I rarely encounter in record stores—in one box, right behind "Adult Only X Rated," I find "Teeners. The crowd starts to balloon at around half past nine, and it's now a bit less homogenous—there are more young attendees and some women, plus a few people who aren't white. I notice one guy flipping through a Rolling Stone Record Guide and another using a mini magnifier to look for imperfections on an LP.
McCune You Are All I Need - Dave Major & The Minors - Second Record Album (Vinyl his shopping long before the fair ends—his third and final trip to the car is at AM, and then it's time for us to leave. McCune has picked up close to LPs, all for resale at Permanent. He avoids buying anything for himself—he says that's a "slippery slope.
As we drive back to Chicago, though, McCune isn't thinking about pricing or resale margins. He's still collecting his thoughts. When you're in there nothing else exists—it's just you and the records.

Are you in? Not ready to commit? Send us what you can! Showing 1- 6 of 6. When stranded on that proverbial desert island — or, say, at home in a pandemic — what you really have to live with, at the end of the day, are your own memories.
To experience the majesty of these works at any age is rewarding, but to encounter their joys and consolations while still becoming who you are is a revelation. We take in such recordings, carry them with us, and inscribe them with our own life histories.
Do the history. If anything, it was just an example of an industry acknowledging an artist without fully understanding the culture that created them.
It has the wit, fun, charm, weight, and depth that transcend any particular moment in time. Music, for me, is a place. And I have more than one home set to melody. I wrestle with its layers the way I fight the ocean when I swim and the lyrics like waves wash comfort over me all the same. With all this alone time, this revolutionary time, this voting time, this is the soundtrack that blankets me in parts that are both hidden and familiar.
I cross my heart and hope to die. Too afraid of a lot of changes. Dark nights in my prayers. Billy Bragg came into my life more than 30 years ago, on a lonely afternoon after school, when I got off the bus, grabbed a snack, and plunked my year-old self down in front of the TV to watch a little VH1 before homework.
But still, the album has a song for every stage of grief one might go through when stranded, devoid of routine and human interaction, with nowhere to go, nowhere to be. This record is spiritual, philosophical, at once sweet and sour, and deeply funky. Each time I listen, it strikes me as perfection. I mean, who knows when I will stand shoulder-to-shoulder to shouting, unmasked strangers again?
For a time, Prince was banned in our suburban Minneapolis household thanks, Tipper Gore. We were still years from our first visits to First Avenue nightclub, yet we fancied ourselves fully connected to the Minneapolis sound via mixtapes and word of LP).
I still own that, although You Are All I Need - Dave Major & The Minors - Second Record Album (Vinyl also scored a vinyl reissue a few years back. She effortlessly defies genre, and on this album, with the caveat of being recorded live, she displays masterful musicianship, brilliant and spellbinding artistry, and an interesting and expansive world of possibilities in music that invite us to consider the same in our lives.
Not only was John Coltrane a master musician, but his life also served as a shining example to many musicians and non-musicians. He stumbled badly in his life as a very young man, but he had the willpower to lift himself up. Clifden, Ireland. Summer of The only outlet is the disco on Saturday night. Elaine Else from Derbyshire was visiting for a week.
Stunning, super confident. I bought the album that week. This is something new. Elaine left. I heard this record for the first time when I was 16 or 17 years old.
The bass licks by Eugene Wright hold this album together. My desert island record changes from day to day. Listening to it all the way through blew my very young mind.
