T.Y.A. = ?

I've learned my lesson. Never underbuy because of airplane restraints. Buy what you want and just pack and ship home prior to air travel. The records I missed at The Collector's 12" in Pittsburgh will haunt me for the end of my days. Similar potential for regret at Underground Sounds in New Orleans, except I sagely called them upon returning home and bought the ones I orphaned via mail order.
