One of the things I was most excited about going to China was locating a local Record Shop. Our shopping guide (how cool is that) had some difficulty finding one in Shanghai, however we were fortunate enough to locate one by chance after wandering into an underground “shopping” area that sold mostly knock off/stolen(?) goods. Side note, kind of pissed I didn’t buy the fake Givenchy Shark Sweater, but I was distracted upon finding this record shop and went running into the store. Upon entering, I was asked if I wanted Hip Hop or House music. When I replied neither, that I was looking for vintage Chinese music, all they said was “Why?” Luckily, after pulling out a rather small stack of records, I happened upon this beautiful Chinese Opera Album from the 60’s. Paired nicely with a bottle of…wine(?) that was quite a hit at the Halloween Party, these were two of my favorite items brought back from the trip.
