One of the best Indy record shops in Indiana, Neat Neat Neat, in Ft. Wayne. Maybe one of the best in the Midwest. The dude who runs the shop has a beautiful, working, Edison “Diamond Disc” player. He also has a special connection to Third Man Records and regularly finds ways to stock some of the treasures of the label.
I was in the field, on the road in Indiana and Ohio collecting field recordings. I had heard about a small record shop in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, called Neat Neat Neat, but had never been there until this trip. I popped in and found this copy of the vinyl Cream Box, the band’s historic 2005 reunion performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Having just watched the documentary, “Beware of Mr. Baker,” I had Cream and the madness of art on my mind. A great film and a great boxed set, though out of print and, sadly, hard to find. If you’re in the Ft. Wayne area, stop by Neat Neat Neat. A well curated shop, and some very nice Third Man vinyl.
