BOSTON — As the saying goes, you haven’t got too many records until your floor collapses.  Mine hasn’t yet, so of course I was delighted when Looney Tunes (one of my fave Boston area used diskeries) announced a 33-1/3-off sale through the end of this month in honor of its 33-1/3 anniversary. All formats, even those that don’t spin at 33-1/3 revolutions per minute, are included in the sale.

Forgoing their ample Elvis collection, I stocked up on 1920s-40s vocalists. Ethel Waters’ coy 32-song, two-LP “Her Greatest Years” for $5.33 — good deal!

Maybe if Looney Tunes sells 33-1/3 of its stock during the anniversary sale, it’ll be easier for collectors to browse through the LP mountains (though, to be fair, In Your Ear on Commonwealth Avenue is even more jam packed).

Looney Tunes is at 1106 Boylston St. near the corner of Massachusetts Avenue (Hynes Center subway stop), not far from Fenway Park.
