On February 04, 2017 I went to my store in Berkeley to do some jazz vinyl digging. While digging I discovered some great jazz vinyl that was reasonable priced and in great condition. I took home seven jazz albums and two 12″ singles from Janet Jackson’s Control album: What Have You Done For Me Lately and Control.
