Karajan gets into the cab. The cab driver asks, "Where are you going, Mr. Director?" Karajan impatiently: "Drive!!! Anywhere! I conduct everywhere!" Is this a joke? No. The name Karajan turns the joke into an anecdote. The mocker who invented the anecdote wanted to say: Karajan is vain, Karajan is insatiable, Karajan is megalomaniac. Probably also: Karajan has a sense of humor. So does the narrator of the anecdote. After it has been told once or a hundred times, someone has written it down. And made sure that it would not be forgotten again. Karajan himself also made sure of that. From day to day, as he became more famous. From conductor to conductor, from magazine portrait to magazine portrait, the market value of the anecdote increased - and the probability that it would disappear from the memory of the cultural world decreased. The quoted anecdote is also attributed, slightly modified, to the politicians Horst Ehmke and Hans-Dietrich Genscher. Bad? No. The anecdote does not belong to anyone entirely. Because it makes fun of character traits and behaviors that many people share. And the anecdote doesn't take truth too seriously. Bad? No. Those who want to tell us truths should not be trusted anyway. The director Joseph Berlinger has dug through the collected treasures of musicians' anecdotes, selected his favorite ones, rewritten them, retold them and staged them. Of course, instead of musician anecdotes, he could have taken chimney sweep anecdotes to task. But Berlinger liked the musician anecdotes best. Because music is the most beautiful of all arts. And whoever composes, interprets, reviews and receives it, whoever plays it, whoever sings it, whoever enjoys it, whoever is disturbed by it, exposes himself to all kinds of ridicule.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
