Welcome back. A week ago I was playing the Gentle Giant albums you gave me and said to Bill, what the heck became of Laura?
Since 2015 business brought me to both St Louis and KC many times, found some great record stores, though it looks like Columbia is smack in the middle of the state, equally between the 2 cities but not near them. Oh well. If you get into St Louis look up Euclid, (but stay off the 2nd floor, they keep the jazz there), and Vintage Vinyl. Then cross street from VV and have a meal at Salt and Smoke, I recommend the BBQ Brisket.
