$5 finds at the record store down the street. Mary Watkins is nice 80s fusion jazz from the usually bland Palo Alto label, Sammy Nestico aside. Victory Chapel Gospel Band is self pressed and based in Southern California. It is partially Santana inspired and led by an ex-junkie preacher on the drums. Hugo Montenegro is a Motown tribute follow-up to his Stevie Wonder one, both which are better than his other cover records of the time. Iliad is more polished and interesting than their other LP which has the samples. CD-R is an unrelased Sun Ra Omniverse Orchestra era album, which I assume was recorded in east Michigan, given to me by Jamaiel Shabaka. He was sitting next to me stageside at the Marshall Allen show this Tuesday. Check out this article, which coincidentally mentions the aforementioned local record store.
Mine was 40 some LPs around the corner from where I grew up; near Los Angeles Valley College and the old KPOL station, from a guy who bulk bought from both collections. Two standouts were Blowfly's "On TV" and The Cult's "Mail Must Go Through". Peanuts compared to the backstock hauls shown here by others BITD, however: multiple sealed copies of Oliver Sain "Main Man" and such.
