RATHER RIPPED RECORDS

Where Every Record Is A New Release

  RATHER RIPPED RECORDS - a REAL RECORD STORE at Trader Jack's in Bridgeville, every Saturday and Sunday.

Last week I celebrated my 69th birthday on Feb. 1, and my flea market buddies gave me the best day I have had yet, sales wise at the TRADER JACK's Flea Market in Bridgeville. Thanks and hope it gets warm soon as we all shiver our timbers over the Artic Vortexes floating in to Pittsbrrrrgh. Besides selling at the flea, we are on www.discogs.com, bonanza.com, and Amazon.com with different items on each as we continue trying to update the myriad lps, cds, 45s, DVDS, VintageTee Shirts, Flannel and Hawaiian Shirts, books and posters that 64 years of collecting have spawned. Drop inside building F as usual, every Saturday and Sunday and check the goodies.

Some great local stuff available, Jupiter Vinyl a retro acoustic folk duo, and the Nox Boys, a psych punk group of youngsters on Get Hip and of course we have some Cynics, Joe Grushecky and more including a few vintage Pork the Torque collections for sale on the premises.

Got some rare live cds of Bowie, Tom Waits, Dr. John the Kinks, the Stones, Pink Floyd & the Who in trades recently, going out fast.

Flea Market hours are 9:00 (8:00 when I haven't been out carousing Friday night to at least 1:00 pm, often later. ....email is ratherrippedrecords@gmail.com if you have any questions. Phone is 412-253-3445. If coming to Pittsburgh, come on down to the flea market and say hello.

We take Visa, Mastercharge, Discovery and American Express.

WE BUY * SELL * AND TRADE

Very nice articles by Scott Mervis of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and one by Andy Mulkerin of City got us off the ground running. Since then the lads and lasses of Lawrenceville have been coming by to welcome us, say hello and shop for bargains. After a holiday go round, we have settled in quite nicely.

The East End's BULLETIN MAGAZINE featured RATHER RIPPED on its cover and with a great article inside from Wesley Davis and a picture of me on the cover. Thank you very much, hope we can help the continued growth of the Bloomfield, Garfield, Lawrenceville areas.

HISTORY OF RATHER RIPPED & DEDICATED FOOL

.Our history starts in a small shoppe on Euclid Street in Berkeley in April 1971, after our founder quit running Leopold's Records (once the largest independent record store in California). Joined by partners Richard who instituted the Dedicated Fool Mail Order serving our soldiers in Vietnam, as well as record lovers all over America, and David, a retail clothing man, RatherRuss and team built a small haven for music lovers in the early 70's, RATHER RIPPED RECORDS, when Berkeley was cracking with Creedence, Joy of Cooking, Eddie Money, Alice Stuart and so many more.....to be continued inside.

RATHER RIPPED RECORDS was built with eclectic music fans in mind, those who can listen to Eric Tingstadt, and Pearl Jam or Tony Bennett, or Dr. Dre. Like most of the world that thinks for itself, Ripped makes its own choices and ignores the blatant overexposure of the same corporations and political ideals over and over. We think that we and you are becoming a vanishing breed. But not so fast. This is our tribute to you and those like you.....Thanks for stopping by. If you liked what you saw, please tell a friend how to get here.
