For your review .. the rare, wonderful, record collection
of the late George Paulus / St George Records.
George didn’t know he was starting his fabulous, world-class
collection from his early teens, circa 1960, he just got
turned on to some really great music.
Chicago’s Maxwell Street was only a couple of bus rides away
from his parents’ South Side house.
The music was in his blood … even on his honeymoon the newlyweds
took a little side trip from London to visit a record store in
Glasgow, Scotland (doesn’t everyone?).
