Hello again ATS. I got a sweet turntable setup from my dad last year, and have been adding to my collection as much as I could since then. Here are a few of my favorites at the moment.







Feel free to respond with some of your own to make me jelly.

That's awesome! I love vinyl records!

Unfortunately someone spilt a whole 16oz beer on my record player during my Halloween party last year.

It still works but the sound goes in and out.


Anyways my first records were from my grandmother and they were all the Beatles! I loved it! And still have them.

One of my favorite records is the Hank Williams sr record we got a little while back. And also Neil Young...harvest record.

I would post pictures, but Hahahahahaha! I don't know how! I'm not computer savvy at all!

I'm glad to see that young people are rediscovering Turntables and Albums. The "new" medium just doesn't sound the same. Digital recordings loose some of the high and lows that are heard on albums (so I've heard it said). Another thing is the artwork, Cd's are too small the have the artwork I grew up with on the old albums.
Bravo! my hat goes off to you. I hope you continue to enjoy the music and pass this on to others.

If you want to grab a great collection for 2-10 dollars per LP, contact record stores in Asia. Especially Korea.

Seriously. I spent hours going through the lp sections of these stores, outdoor stalls etc when I lived there. They have 1,000's left over from the soldiers and they bought a bunch because it was cool at the time. They also have some of the best turn tables in the World.

I bought Eric Burton and the Animals first album, sealed with the original tag of 3 dollars on it for 4 dollars when I was there. Many more as well.

Peace

I still have a small collection that isn't packed up somewhere. Most of my old ones are. I've kept out all my Kiss (my favorite band) and my other top bands out in a closet for easier access.

I still buy a couple from time to time.



The bottom two are some of my more recent buys and some of my favorite ones.. A red Italian version of Uncle Jam Wants You and Pleasure Principle by Parlet.

They say vinyl is making a comeback.

And the reason is the art. With mp3, you don't have the album cover and sleeve to study (loved the ones with the lyrics so you can sing along) to stare at while you listen to tunes.

In the 70s and 80s, sometimes the album art alone would break or make a band.

We have a record and tape traders, and a local vinyl store. You should see if you have local places like that. F.Y.E. also has a vinyl section.

This is my most desired object in the whole wide world. It will never be reprinted, and anyone and everyone who has a copy will never get rid of it...

I'd watch out with the cover to Nevermind lol. I think I heard of a guy who was contacted by the FBI over CP charges after posting it on his blog...

Good stuff man, long live vinyl...can't beat the warmth, feel, smell and sound of wax! That beautiful crackle too


I still collect myself, mostly Hip-Hop but have a lot of old stuff like motown, classical, punk etc...have an original of O'Jays 1972 'Backstabbers' a;bum which has the cover signed by all the members which I found in a charity shop for pennies. Which brings me onto my next point...It's so easy for people to download music in an instant these days, but I feel kids are missing out in these digital days - the trips out to record shops, hunting down your rare copy of a certain track, the album artwork that comes with it, the journey home, placing the needle on the record for the first time...the sound man!

ha ha rant over, respect bro. Peace
