What could be cooler than going record shopping with Paul Weller
? In a new edition of Amoeba Records’ series What’s In My Bag
, Weller goes record hunting at the iconic Hollywood store and picks up a copy of the Tropicalia collection, John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme,
a reissue LP of T-Rex (“he really spoke to kids of his time”
) a collection of Ethiopian music, the U.S. version of Traffic’s Heaven Is In Your Mind
(“it’s in mono!
”), Stockhausen, Rodriguez, and Dinah Washington.
“I could spend a week here,” said Weller, “and I’d still be at the tip of the iceberg." Paul has a few festival gigs this spring in the UK but we're hoping that he'll be back in the U.S. in the fall. Stay tuned.
