On a recent trip out west, I stopped in Council Bluffs to visit a VERY unsusual record store-Kanesville Collectables, which advertises it has A MILLION records on site. The whole top floor of their warehouse is $1 records (perfect for the "frugal" collector like me!) This week's Backtracks is music from compilations I got at Kanesville for $1.
