I should have guessed. Record store employees are usually hippest when it comes to offbeat, offshoot bands. Why do you think you hear such weird music whenever you step into a (Independent!) record store?!
Canterbury Records in Pasadena, Calif. is one of the last record stores in Southern California. Their merchandise is quite eclectic--pop, classical, rare R & B groups, a lot of bands from the 1920's and 1930's, and even some 33's, 45's and 78's. When you walk through the door, anything might be playing, from Petula Clark singing "Calendar Girl" in French to a 1940's performance of a Bach piece by a Dutch orchestra.
