Dunes (1961)

This one was not planned. As I was walking home from the bank this afternoon, I stopped into a small antique shop that was advertising a 50% closing sale. While I perused, the store owner, an older southern woman, first referred to me as 'beach bum', then asked me what I was looking for. I handed her a stack of sleeveless 45 singles, with this Dunes 7 inch on the top of the pack. 'This one is warped, honey', she said .'It's yours!' She ended up giving me the entire bunch. When I asked her to put aside the two pricier singles I found in a separate pile, she replied back: 'I'll keep them right here in my drawer. They'll be here waiting for you, until eternity.'
