Record Store Day 2014

As I turned into Merchants Arch I heard Mick Jagger singing an old blues song "I followed her to the station with a suitcase in my hand."
 His long drawling tones filled the shaded walkway and the sound drifted up between the buildings either side.
The song was coming from a speaker over the door to a staircase that led you up to Mojo's Records.

"I moved upstairs because the rent was cheaper", said the owner. I found Mojo's on my first visit to Dublin but it was after closing time.
On this sunny afternoon off I was lured back by records and posters. 
It was worth the trip to see these album covers alone...Tom Waits, Keith Richards, David Bowie-wearing a dress, Bob Dylan and The Beatles dressed like that's what I call a party!
Guest Post from Mr B, the 'birthday boy'. Not as old as The Queen but for one month only, the same age as me!
Happy Birthday Mr B!


  1. Happy Birthday, Mr B! No record shop day here, too busy working but we do have a nice vintage Hacker from the car boot last week to play our vinyl on! x
