Came across one place that had a room full of "dollar records" and promptly started digging. Came away with a Hank on MGM, a handful of Jimmie Rodgers, a few nondescript country sides and some Japanese pressed stuff.
But it was the name I didn't recognize that had me cautiously optimistic. Although I didn't know of the artist, I knew enough to snatch a Victor 38000...especially a high numbered one...AND for a buck to boot. (In contrast, the Hank set me back $5...so much for honoring the dollar room.)
After several hours, I've just gotten home, done a little internet research, cleaned the record and transferred the audio...revealing a pleasant surprise.
Here's Minnie Wallace accompanied by the Memphis Jug Band.
