Who: Miss Lana
What: Buckingham Nicks LP
Where: Book & Music Exchange (Louisville, KY)

When I use It: As with all Mac albums, I love to listen to this Buckingham Nicks album when I’m in a romantic or particularly whimsical mood, drinking wine and perhaps knitting or drawing.
Shopping Tips: Most of your savvy record store clerks price their music based upon product and availability; however, a lot of vintage and thrift stores carry items that are either overlooked or just not recognized for their value or awesome-factor. Looking through used bins in your more off-the-trail junk shops can reap large rewards. My favorite albums typically are from the 60s and 70s-a time in which music labels were a little more particular about what sort of sound they signed. If I see something that sparks my interest, but I’ve not actually listened to the band or record, knowing something about who contracted the artist can help me happen upon something more compatible with my taste.
