Bill's picks 

Bill Eginton's Arkansas Record & CD Exchange is tucked away in a strip mall in Levy. It's a fairly unassuming looking store from the outside. But one need only to step inside (remembering to take your jacket off, of course) to understand that the place is a treasure trove. Eginton recently shared some of his favorite Arkansas records with the Times. As one might imagine, he's got quite the collection. He showed us rare True Soul records from Larry Davis ("one of the unsung heroes of Arkansas") and garage rock 45s from The Lost Souls and The Romans that would have the collector nerds drooling. Below are a few of Bill's picks.

The big reveal came last week. Shelly, the goofy, buck-toothed horse that served as the team's mascot since 1996 was "upgraded" to Ace, a menacing, 7-foot horse. But Ace didn't fill the "legendary" good luck charm role. That's left to a second new mascot, Otey the swamp possum.
