Title: Vinyl Records
Post by: DeputyDoses on February 10, 2013, 10:25:46 PM
So are any posters into buying/collecting vinyl?

If so, share and post your favorites and recent purchases. 7" and 12" and every other size. Originals, re-releases, etc.
Post it all!

I'll start off with my most recent pick ups

I only have two vinyls since I don't have a turntable (I bought them because my favorite band only released them on vinyl) and I have a question. I took the vinyl out of its cover to inspect it and immediately, the half that it was in ballooned outward into an almond shape. The vinyl can still fit into it (barely), but does anyone know of any way to straighten it out?

So wait, the cover is bowed out all weird? Sounds strange. Pic? A few of my vinyls will only go back into the cover if the inner sleeve is inserted one way or the other, that's my only advice if I'm understanding you right.

Just got into vinyls this year, as my previous living arrangement wouldn't permit blasting my music of choice continuously.

Most of what I've got so far is just sorta collecting stuff my dad raised me on, a couple Zappa albums, a couple Beach Boys albums, Beatles albums, Pink Floyd, The Guess Who, The Ventures. Greatest hits albums from The Hollies, The Lovin' Spoonful and The 5th Dimension. Then some more recent stuff like Elliott Smith, Sparklehorse, Wilco, Bon Iver's for emma album, bunch of stuff no one else cares for.

Here's my meager collection in it's entirity, 30 something albums in total.

^^^^ that's pretty much what I was going for. Everyone loves music, and with the recent interest sparking in releasing new vinyl, I thought people would give some warm responses. I'm diggin your taste in music though.

I received a copy of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Double Fantasy in the mail today from Ebay (I always try to support local, but a $2 first edition still with shrink wrap was too hard to pass up). SO HYPED! "Watching the Wheels" and "Woman" are perfect.

And I'm looking to buy some new (as in newer artists and new copies) vinyl pretty soon. I'm still missing an album and EP from Deerhunter. Then a bunch from Dead Meadow, Built to Spill, and Naam.
-Also had my eye on several Black Sabbath reissues from NEMS.

Is anyone against buying new records or reissues?
-I'm only against it when the reissues cost a hell of a lot more than mint copies of the original. For instance at the local shop, Sabbath's Paranoid is $20 for a near mint issue from the '70's while the new reissue costs $25.

I tried to attached a photo to this post, but my computer is messing up so I'll try to describe it.  The side of the cover that you slip the vinyl into is bowed out into an almond shape.  The two halves bend away from each other right at the opening.  It was really strange.  Like I said, I took the vinyl out to looks at it, my girlfriend translated some of the French on the inside of the sleeve, and when I tried to put the vinyl with the inner sleeve on back in, it was more difficult.  I took the vinyl out right when I felt resistance and that's when I noticed it was bowed out.  And I made sure to put it back in the way I took it out. 

It's not a huge deal because the vinyl isn't warped or broken, but still kind of sucks.

I'm all for buying new stuff if you've got the money for it. I'm not incredibly seasoned in this, but thus far my experience with buying old stuff has ruled; thumbing through discount bins with $10 and leaving with 8 or so albums you wouldn't mind owning. Regarding newer stuff, so far I've sort of applied the same method of buying vinyl as I use buying skate videos, download and preview, and if I'm really compelled to support, I'll buy it. I'm just too broke to buy anything on faith that I'll like it- It's hard to justify the morality or ethic of pirating music, but I liken it to the way you wouldn't buy a painting to hang without seeing it first. I'm looking to get You In Reverse by b.t.s. and Doolittle by Pixies next time I pony up the cash and get back on the prowl.

could be from being exposed to to much heat or something. i had a similar issue with an old rush record my dad gave me, the vinyl was warped but only up until the end of tom sawyer, believe it or not it actually made the song sound really cool with the warping sounds in the background combined with the synths and keyboards haha.

Yeah, since it was only the cardboard sleeve and it still fits in (barely), I assume it was like a manufacturing defect with the sleeve.  I was just curious if anyone else has ever had this happen.  Or if anyone had any ideas for straightening it out.

I'm so curious what's going on, you've no idea. It's weird that it fit in there perfectly and then self destructed upon removal.

Title: Re: Vinyl Records
Post by: pica on February 13, 2013, 12:58:30 AM
i have around 300-350 lps, and a few singles. my highlights are some rare german records that most of you guys won't know. on the more well known side i got a lot of smiths and leonard cohen stuff, nirvana, pinky floyd as well as german punk bands and a mini collection of soundtracks. on  the newer side i just purchased a deer tick record that's fantastic and a local record called schwunder that i listen to a lot.
i'm still searching for biggies ready to die album so if anyone has one to sell, hit me up.

the problem with buying new records from nowadays album releases is that most likely the album is recorded digital and then they press vinyl from a digital recording. no advantage in sound whatsoever, while old vinyl was pressed from analog recordings. still you have to be a total nerd to hear a difference, i don't hear it at all.

also i can highly suggest you to throw away the paper innersleeves that work the vinyl like griptape and buy fitted ones instead, your records will thank you it's a good investment.

also browse discogs.com a lot you get a good feeling how much vinyl is worth, and how much you should pay for certain records and in general that's not much.

i had to deal with it in a few cases when the vinyl itsefl was warped. if that is the case there are certain ways to straighten it out like putting it inbetween two glassplates in the oven at small heat or in the sun. only uses these techniques on records that are unplayable because of the way they are warped.check youtube for tutorials.
 but if that's not the case and since it is a gatefold cover i'd just store the vinyl in it's innersleeve in between the fold parts of the cover. if it's a new record i'd return it to the shop i've done that on a few ocassions and always got my stuff replaced.

ok herc.
my personal highlight is "ich habe meine tante geschlachtet" by helmut lohner a collection of songs using frank wedekind lyrics. it's not super expensive but quite a bit (around 50 euros) but it was hard to get it and i like it very much.
(http://www.recordsale.de/cdpix/h/helmut_lohner-ich_hab_meine_tante_geschlachtet.jpg)
some kurt sowinetz records, ludwig hirsch, andre heller and arik brauer. armin berg, otto reuther and the comedian harmonists since i have a passion for music from the 1920ies/30ies. georg kreisler a proper ambros collection with only a few lps missing and a lot of qualtinger. i have most of the old toten hosen stuff that are in my opinion the best german band ever, i know some people think different about it but i'm not gonna argue on something i know for sure.
i also have most of the EAV stuff but the ones i'm missing cost up to 1600 euros (the first one, a rare self titled album with disneys goofy on the cover) and the second one "cafe passe" that's around 150 with the poster still included and around 80 without it. still i would buy the second one if i ever get my hands on a copy the other one is out of my financial league. u happy now?

Led Zeppelin IV and The Best of Jethro Tull

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41qFkUV3rkL.jpg)

IV is in wonderful condition. 1977 pressing. I like to buy 1st pressings, but this one was the best condition out of three or four other copies in stock. Definitely satisfied.

Jethro Tull has some slight ring-wear on the front and back, nothing serious. The vinyl is immaculate though.

Thank you, sir. I was pretty psyched on it myself. There are so many reissues floating around, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was a reissue. Either way, sick album to own.

Like... The Beatles for instance. As reissues continue to be pressed, they just keep driving the price of the originals further and further up. No one should ever have to spend $40 for an "acceptable" (VG rated) copy of Revolver...

But those are some great donation-records. Fuckin REIGN IN BLOOD!! Slayer is the shit.

I'm looking to get You In Reverse by b.t.s. and Doolittle by Pixies next time I pony up the cash and get back on the prowl.

I'm pretty much the same stance that you are on this. My (now ex) girlfriend bought my Pink Floyd's Animals album on vinyl for my birthday last March. I really didn't think that much of it, but I've been buying records for the past few months, and it's just the best.
For a lot of records, I buy them solely because I love them. Most of Pink Floyd's work is a must own for me (everything from 1967-1977). Led Zeppelin's early work is great. And everything from the Doors. As for a band like... Jefferson Airplane, I'll only buy a couple albums that I really love.
It's hard to justify pirating anything, but so many of us do it. That's why I feel like we're sort of "taking the music back" and really listening to and appreciate the music when we listen to it on vinyl.

I'm actually looking to buy both of those as well. Doolittle is the best Pixies album (as a whole) in my opinion. And you can never go wrong with Built to Spill, man.

I used to have about 400 LP's and 150 45's until I sold all of them to help fund moving out of my parents house. Slowly I'm starting to recollect what I had. I got a sealed 1987 repress of Confusion Is Sex by Sonic Youth for $30 at the local record shop a few months ago. Haven't bought anything since.

On a pretty big Earth kick lately, though. Winter, breh. Cover looks dope. I only ever saw the CD release before this internet search for it.

yeah I call my collection respectable cause it's nothing compared to some guys!
a DJ friend of mine has to keep his records in a separate place, they dont fit in his flat....

I like watching the "crate diggers" series too:

Cut Chemist's Vinyl Collection - Crate Diggers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DPt1PW9rY0#ws)

HOLY SHIT! Now that is incredible

You guys are great! These videos made my day.
And my quest to seek out more and more record collection videos continues.

Weekend pick up:

As a huge fan of the movie and novel, I could NOT resist picking this record up.
-so great.

Honorable mentions for last weekend... I picked up a stunning 1977 pressing of John Lennon - Imagine. While at the check out, I asked the owner about any new Pink Floyd arrivals. And as a bonus, the store owner gave me a free copy of Pink Floyd - Obscured by Clouds.

I own CD's but I think its time to expand my collection since some albums are only on vinyl. Whats a good record player? If possible, something that is able to transfer songs to my computer.

most new turntables have usb connections nowadays, but i'm sceptical and i think i would never use it. stay away from the "built in speaker" stuff.  for the begining any turntable starting at i'd say 100 dollars is fine to start with. the good stuff starts at 250. in my experience any cheaper stuff is made out of pure plastic, crappy quality, etc.  but i'm probably totally wrong on this one and i'm sure it's possible to get a decent setup for less if you know what and where to buy it. after i had a cheap one for less than 50 and i used it for 1 or two weeks, i bought a DJ turntable, i never use the scratch function and stuff, but i like the fact that it has a pitch fader and i also have the feeling that it forgives more mistakes when you handle the records (specially when you use it drunk)  if you wanna spend some money and mix tunes get a technics 1210.

That "archive" video was great. I had never heard of that guy. and the 17% figure was amazing!

I also agree with the usb connection scepticism. I've always heard the quality is pretty bad. When I wanna have an MP3 version of one of my records, I usually just go to a torrent site.

And speaking of movie soundtracks, I picked this up for cheap a few months back....

I'm going to have to disagree with Pica. Save a bunch of that "$100 is fine to start with" he's suggesting spending on a player and buy some records to listen to! Go to yard sales or thrift stores and buy a turntable that works and worry about becoming an audiophile later. And unless you're mixing records there's no need for pitch control. The turntable I have now was purchased for 10? at a market in Berlin and it rules. An all plastic 80's Technics with a great cartridge. Works for me.

Also, anything I want to listen to on my phone I just download from the internet.

yeah totally, you can buy cheaper stuff second hand as well.
but stay away from stuff like this:

invest that money in a good second hand turntable, but buying a new one in the lowest price range will just destroy your records.

totally agree. A good second-hand amp will also be much cheaper than a new one, and sometimes it'll sound much better! All my gear is like 30 years old. I bought this amp a few months back.

Some of my vinyl is from my youth (mainly have cassettes) and others I have filled in over time.  I only get stuff I am sure to be able to put in and enjoy as an album...so less and less is making the cut these days. 

To give a general sense of it, I have every Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, and Fugazi album on vinyl.  I also have an assortment of Stereolab, My Bloody Valentine, Jesus and Marychain, and Black Sabbath. 

More recent stuff includes Broadcast (Ha Ha Sound), Deerhunter (all), Atlas Sound, War on Drugs, and various Captured Tracks releases.

Great finds in recent years include Nancy Sinatra (Boots) and Frankie Laine (Hell Bent on Leather)

You know an album is a keeper when you have it in more than one physical format.

I'm just recently starting to get into it, vinyls are still pretty big in the punk scene, and I got a few as gifts from friends so I figured why not. Basically I'm just working on getting all my favorite old albums, and keeping up with some new releases that I really like, or from local bands.

speaking of new releases, the new Iron Reagan album comes out next month, beyond stoked for that.

Buying vinyl from shows is the best thing you can do for yourself and for the dudes who are traveling and playing. It puts gas in the van and beer in their bellys. Plus you get a little piece of the show. Win win win

Not my approach at all but to each his own!
I like to have a variety of stuff to fit different moods.... I mean, I love Fugazi too, but I also have a lot salsa/latin records, reggae, metal, hip hop, jazz, even disco and country. But I've also stopped buying just anything I came across out of curiosity. I try to restrict myself a bit, otherwise I buy too much and then I don't find the time to listen to the damn things...

one of my favorite finds was Ha Ha Sound, because I got it at a show in NYC during the 'Witch Cults' tour, long after out of print, but band just had some extras so they were selling them...$20?! so psyched on that.

How about a pre-order for their next record?  PS- I see Blood Lust go for a decent price all the time on Ebay.  Sure there's the kooks, but you can get it for about $45-$50 if you pay close attention.

Here's the pre-order for Mind Control.  You can get that stupidly priced 7" on there right now too.  http://www.interpunk.com/item.cfm?Item=209569& (http://www.interpunk.com/item.cfm?Item=209569&)

EDIT: you were looking for other doom bands too... check out Year of The Goat and Bloody Hammers.  I actually don't like the latter at all, but the first is pretty good.

I used to have around 3000 lp s sold em all in the late 90s for a good amount of money that lasted me for a year and a half, didnt have to work at all.
Most of it were old punk rock and indie, lots of stuff that have been mentioned in this tread.
I miss em sometimes, even tho they took up a lot of space and were a bitch everytime i moved, and i used to move alot back then.

Anyway.

I just got a new record player and me and my wife celebrated 5 years of marriage, she gave me this as a gift.
I love my wife.

If you're looking for a cheaper, but still quality player, check out record players from Crosley.
They've been around for decades upon decades and they have both new and more "classic" style set ups.
They actually have a really warm sound. And the ones with built in speakers sound a lot better than people will lead you to believe.

Weekend pick-ups!!!

Pink Floyd - Ummagumma
The studio record is really nice and out there, probably the most experimental record that they made. The live record is thrilling, oozing with psychedelic energy. A great double LP.
(http://tosca.homeip.net/temp/tosca/P/DSC04511.jpg)

Grateful Dead - Skeletons from the Closet (best of)
Great sound and their 1st compilation record
(http://store.acousticsounds.com/images/large/UWAR_W2764__64902__11302009034709-3351.jpg)

The Doors - Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine
A fantastic double LP featuring some of their best work, without necessarily feeling like a "best of" album
(http://jimmorrison.ru/sites/default/files/The-Doors-Weird-Scenes-Insi-95933.jpg)

Iron Butterfly - Live
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vidda takes up an entire side. There's not much more to say about this masterpiece.

This thread is beyond rad. I am an avid collector of vinyl and cassettes. In my area, we have the best record store around, Doubledecker records. The owner seriously gets the craziest stuff in, its completely mind blowing. Go in there on any given day and you can find an original "In My Eyes" by Minor Threat or the first pressing of Teen Idles self titled on Dischord. And of course he gets in plenty of The Velvet Underground, Joy Division, Wipers, Flipper, DEVO, Echo and the Bunnymen, Wire, and newer stuff like Grass Widow, Thee Oh Sees, Pissed Jeans, etc. I spend two to three days of my week there, hanging out. Recent purchases include:
Joy Division "Closer (original pressing, promotional copy)
DEVO "New Traditionalists (Original Pressing)
Green and Wood Self titled (Ethan Fowler's band)
The Monochrome Set "Strange Boutique (Reissue)
Void 7 inch (original pressing)
The Dream Syndicate "Days of Wine and Roses" (Original pressing)

middle class-homeland
motown-the big wheels of motown compilation
moss icon-discography
nas-illmatic
rick james-street songs
sade-diamond life
stevie wonder-songs in the key of life
steely dan-gaucho
the smiths-strange ways here we come
war-(some kind of compilation, unfortunately the only vinyl record i have from war)
yaphet kotto-the killer was in the government blankets

i also got a few 12inch singles, some split records(leatherface/hot water music, los crudos/spitboy, angel hair/bare minimum, milemarker/blood brothers to name a few) and i also buy the occasional 7inch, mostly at shows.

it's weird now that i only buy vinyl my collection doesn't represent my musical taste that correctly. i also have a big cd collection but no cd player anymore, i just keep them and sometimes i might upload on on my pc, but they don't really get used which is kind of a shame because i have some gems in there.

Recent finds:

Dead Meadow - Shivering King and Others
Dead Meadow - Three Kings
Deerhunter - Rainwater Casette Exchange
Built to Spill - Keep it like a Secret
Atlas Sound - Logos
Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) - Pendulum
The Doors - 13
The Doors - Morrison Hotel
Pink Floyd - Masters of Rock
Syd Barrett - Opel
Lionel Ritchie - Can't Slow Down
Xanadu (soundtrack from the motion picture)

And I just received a copy of Alex Calder's TIME EP in the mail that just dropped this week on green vinyl! - big thanks to the shoegaze discussion on SLAP for posting the song "Suki and Me."

This thread is beyond rad. I am an avid collector of vinyl and cassettes. In my area, we have the best record store around, Doubledecker records. The owner seriously gets the craziest stuff in, its completely mind blowing. Go in there on any given day and you can find an original "In My Eyes" by Minor Threat or the first pressing of Teen Idles self titled on Dischord. And of course he gets in plenty of The Velvet Underground, Joy Division, Wipers, Flipper, DEVO, Echo and the Bunnymen, Wire, and newer stuff like Grass Widow, Thee Oh Sees, Pissed Jeans, etc. I spend two to three days of my week there, hanging out. Recent purchases include:
Joy Division "Closer (original pressing, promotional copy)
DEVO "New Traditionalists (Original Pressing)
Green and Wood Self titled (Ethan Fowler's band)
The Monochrome Set "Strange Boutique (Reissue)
Void 7 inch (original pressing)
The Dream Syndicate "Days of Wine and Roses" (Original pressing)
Your shop sounds so great, nice variety. I'm also psyched that you're also stating whether it's an original or repress. Most people that I know don't seem to care either way.
My shop only has vinyl from the 60s, 70s, and 80s - which is great and all because I love 60s/70s rock, but I have to go elsewhere to purchase new releases...

Keep the great posts coming though. As always, it's great to see all of the interest in vinyl. And it's always great to see new pick ups from everyone.

I want MORE CTI records!!

good thing they are cheap and plentiful!!! some collectors might wince at CTI shit but there is plenty of quality electric jazzfunk groove stuff (and beyond) to get into, especially for someone who is new to buying that type of music, love the interlude track on that album you posted, herbie on the fender rhodes is as good as it gets in my book (well maybe just a chapter of my book), actually just pulled out all my herbie albums the other day (got about 10 or so), speak like a child, fat albert rotunda, mwandishi, of course head hunters, all of that shit (1965-1975) is fucking excellent, i highly recommend all of it

Post by: OldieButFrenchie on March 27, 2013, 01:55:20 AM
yup Herbie is a master, no doubt!
Saw him live two years ago and he still kicks ass.

unfortunately (for me) CTI is stuff is not that cheap and plentiful over here in Europe.... I dont know where you live but american record stores are pretty much unbeatable for soul/jazz/funk, all american styles basically. I nearly lost my mind in NY record stores.....so much stuff compared to what I'm used to in Europe!!

i was listening through the love unlimited soundtrack earlier and this one cut stuck out as really familiar, i was racking my brain as to why, assuming it was a sampled somewhere, but it turns out i was familiar with it from danny montoya's part in one step beyond, hadn't seen it in a long time so it was a real treat to watch it again, made me remember when i would first watch it how i would always get temporarily confused about his stance because he did so many fakie and nollie crooks that i would get it mixed up and would have to rewind it to rewatch tricks and get my head straight, love that shit

To Frenchie:
Eh, it's okay to buy reissues. I try to buy originals whenever possible, but I don't mind reissues depending on the artist and rarity of the album.
A Tribe Called Quest is SO essential though! Great hip hop. Great addition to anyone's music library, regardless of what edition it is.
Do you have the original pressings of Suicidal Tendencies' first four albums?!?!

Just bought this for my brother as a birthday present...

What album did you get for your brother..?
Also, I looked up The National: Boxer, I assumed that they were a 1920's music ensemble... I was dead wrong. I really like their vocalist. Guest Room has a great sound/flow.


Recent Purchases:
John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band
John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band - Live Peace in Toronto 1969
The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Dead Meadow - Old Growth
Van Morrison - Beautiful Vision (for the love making)

Saturday Night Fever - soundtrack from the motion picture
The Steve Miller Band - greatest hits 1974-1978
Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick
The Best of Carly Simon - Vol. 1
^^^ got these four for $8 total - so psyched!

favorite recent purchase: John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band!

I got the Bon Iver album for my brother.  I'm fairly sure he hasn't heard of them/Justin Vernon, but hopefully he'll be into it.

Cool to hear you dig The National.  Matt Berninger (the vocalist) is absolutely great, for whatever reason his lyrics just click.  Also Guest Room is a great track, really stood out to me the first time I listened to the record as well.

as far as Suicidal, you made me check my collection just to be sure! and I found this:

Original but German pressing

(http://www.amiright.com/album-covers/images/album-Suicidal-Tendencies-Join-the-Army.jpg)

original US pressing. I think I bought it when I was 12, first trip to the US with my parents haha....just cause I had seen their name in Thrasher!

this one is pretty sick, it was a present from a friend - unlicensed 3lp set containing "the smiths" "meat is murder" and "the world won't listen".

Frenchie: you could probably get some serious money for those albums if you kept them all in mint condition. I don't think that first pressings for Suicidal Tendencies' first album go for all that much though...
Cool to hear you dig The National.  Matt Berninger (the vocalist) is absolutely great, for whatever reason his lyrics just click.  Also Guest Room is a great track, really stood out to me the first time I listened to the record as well.
Of course. Do you have any other recommendations from The National?


dope o so dope as fuck
I'm working towards collecting ALL of Pink Floyd's discography, including all compilations and live albums. And I own all of Syd Barrett's albums as well (only three albums, but still). I'm almost done. There are only a few album that I still need to get from Pink Floyd. Then... I'll start collecting bootlegs.

--Fuck yeah rusty! The Elevators are one of my favorite bands. I'm trying to get some Roky Erickson records, but they're all crazy expensive.

Ouch... I know what you mean though. I don't really consider the Violent Femmes to be a band that people just "grow out of."
But as long as you're psyched on it, that's what matters. I think it's a classic album though. It definitely belongs in everyone's collection of records.
Plus, it's being reissued now, so that's just a testament to its greatness.

This particular album features two versions of "Dreams Never End" and "Ceremony" which are very different from the studio versions and also feature Stephen Morris on vocals. He was originally going to sing but decided the task of drumming and singing was too difficult. Check it out.

Castle Face and Friends cover The Velvet Underground and Nico.
Foxygen- WE ARE THE 21ST CENTURY AMBASSADORS OF PEACE AND MAGIC.

Bringing the (white) heat with that White Stripes album. Pica, how did you get your hands on that?

To Mr. Kamikaze, Iron Butterfly is great. As far as psychedelic rock goes, they (to me anyway) feel pretty overlooked as a whole.


As for me... I've kinda splurged the past week and a half...

Recent purchases:
The Temptations - Anthology (3 LP set)
Santana - s/t
Violent Femmes - s/t
The Pretenders - Learning to Crawl
The Motion Picture Soundtrack to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Amazing Baby - Rewild (brand new for $2 on ebay)
MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
The Best of Bach
Lil B - Rain in England (for shits/gigs)
Psychic Ills - Hazed Dream --- great new-age psychedelic band
Syd Barrett - The Madcap Laughs (180 gram Spanish reissue from 2011)
Led Zeppelin - In Through the Out Door (the non-brown paper bag edition)
The Doors - Soft Parade
Deerhunter - Monomania (so hyped on this album)

The Peel Sessions were going for $20 on ebay a few months back. Now, I can't find any god damn copies... I really wish I would've picked up a copy when I had the chance too.


Today's purchases from the local record store..!
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Band of Horses - Everything All the Time
Blondie - Parallel Lines
Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest
Grease - The Original soundtrack from the Motion Picture
Mac Demarco - 2

I've been debating on buying a local promo copy of Ultimate Spinach III for $20 in vg+ shape, but I can find mint copies for roughly the same price on ebay.

You can never really buy too many albums. There are just too many great records out there that are ripe for the picking.

I'm currently bidding on Ultimate Spinach III.

Recent purchases from the local shop:
-The Beatles - Abbey Road (1978 pressing)
-Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. II (1971 pressing - still in shrink!)
-Led Zeppelin III (1970 - first pressing)
money well spent

(http://www.sra.at/av/ttc/34/3106.jpg)

bought all of them for 1 euro each at the flea market. as well as this LP i picked up out of curiosity not knowing anything about it, but the cover looked interesting:

(http://s.pixogs.com/image/R-150-2560658-1290480310.jpeg)

i came home, put it on the turntable and played it, some kind of folk music with a strong irish influence. not the stuff i'd listen to, but whatever. just a euro.  put it back in the shelf and didn't looked at it for 3 or 4 days.

today i've looked it up on discogs. turns out to be a rare private press, limited to 500 copies and it costs between 85 dollars  and 110 euros.

Every time I see the Soft Parade cover I think of how before I heard "Tell all the People" and "Touch Me" I thought all Doors songs were unfuckwitable.
Title: Re: Vinyl Records
Post by: DeputyDoses on August 19, 2013, 11:13:54 PM
New albums:

The Beatles - Let it Be & Magical Mystery Tour (1st pressing - U.S.)
The Doors - Strange Days (1st Pressing)
The Rolling Stones - Let it Bleed
The Misfits - s/t
Hall & Oates - Rock N Soul Pt. 1
Otis Redding - Dock of the Bay
Otis Redding/Jimi Hendrix Experience
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Axis: Bold as Love
Earth Wind & Fire - Best of Vol. 1


---The Soft Parade is a pretty damn good album (my least favorite Doors album though), but it just showcases a weird time in the Doors' career. Touch Me alongside Runnin' Blue and the title track just don't feel like they fit together.

Every time the Bob (medley) comes on by Roxy, it's just instant flashbacks of Reynolds nailing frontside flips.

I'm especially stoked on finding the Biz Mark LP, cause original 80's hip hop stuff is pretty hard to come by in Europe. German pressing but still, for 10 euros, I aint complaining at all.

"The Bob" was off of Roxy Music's first record, which came out in 1972. Roxy Music came out with two records in the early 80s. Far from an 80s band.

I always considered it '80s music growing up. I never really looked into it, despite owning several of Roxy Music's albums.

New pick ups:

The Best of Tommy James and the Shondells
Earth Wind & Fire - That's the Way of the World (sealed for only $2.99)
The Rolling Stones - Hot Rocks (1964-1971)
Deerhunter - Vox Celeste 5 b/w Microcastle Mellow 3 ---- a 7" with different takes from the two songs featured on Microcastle. Reaaaally great stuff, one of the 45s from Sub Pops singles of the month back in 2009. Best purchase all month.

anyway, recent purchases include:
Ian Dury "New Boots and Panties" on gold vinyl, original.
Belle and Sebastian "The Blues are Still Blue" 7 inch(I work at the record store when the owner needs an extra hand and I was going through stuff, and there was a bunch of 7 inches on the floor that I almost stepped and this one was one of them, mint condition, and it was five bucks)
The Urinal "Negative Capability" reissue on In The Red.
Veronica Falls 7 inch. Self titled.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Is it the original pressing of Paranoid or the reprint from NEMS that has been circulating over the past couple years?
I know that the original NEMS pressing has some sound issues during War Pigs and perhaps another song.


How much did you score the Nirvana Unplugged album for?
Title: Re: Vinyl Records
Post by: Hercules Rockefeller on October 08, 2013, 12:51:09 AM
its the NEMS version (http://www.discogs.com/Black-Sabbath-Paranoid/release/2312299 (http://www.discogs.com/Black-Sabbath-Paranoid/release/2312299)).

the nirvana one went for 15 euros, its not the original (aka shitty expensive) one though.

Pick ups from the weekend:

John Lennon: Live in NYC

extra money once i felt i had a pretty solid, well rounded collection. after that, all i ever care about is records. anyways, this is a photo of a dj set i did at a bar down the street from me, thought you'd enjoy

Buying records is an all consuming hobby/addiction that I absolutely love participating in and exposing people do.
It's so much like skateboarding in that idea of wanting to get others into it and becoming so enveloped in it.

what s your #1 most sought after vinyl record?

Mine is Weakilng Dead as Dreams ... I can't fork out $300+ for it online and will probably never find it in stores anywhere. I always look - even though if it showed in some record store I'm sure the people working there would hold on to it. Sucks. I got one of the first cd issues though woo! Meh. I'd trade all my shitty vinyl for that album.

i have a few vinyl questions. i plan on getting my girlfriend a turntable for christmas and im looking for suggestions and input on what to get. ive just checked on amazon and i think the ones that come with a usb and allow for digital conversion are pretty cool, because that way if we buy a record we can convert it for our phones or computers. my dad also has an old technics one i think. its covered in dust and definitely hasnt been used in over 20 years. it has the plastic hood on it, so i dont think the inside is dirty. the thing with that one is im probably going to have to find an old stereo receiver and some speakers for it, but that might cost around the same as buying a new turn table. im predicting that this is going to be more of a novelty hobby than something we get super serious about, so im not looking to spend a boat load of money. maybe $150 max, but more in the range of $75-100. do you guys have any suggestions?

well in my opinion, i'd say go with your dad's Technics.  those things are built like tanks, and will last FOREVER.  do you know if it is a belt drive turn table (most technics are).  if so... the only maintenance you would need is to change the belt, which is easy as hell and is usallly cheap.  a new needle/stylus should cost you 25 to 30 bucks.

if you have a picture of it or know the model i could give you some more input and send you some helpful links.

you don't necessarily need to find an old receiver to hook up an old turntable, you just have to make sure whatever receiver you are using has a turntable input (not an auxillary input).  70's receivers are the best anyways, they're cheap used.

if you don't want to deal with all that stuff then you can get a decent record player with USB connection for cheap these days... unless you're a record nerd/audiophile you can get one for probably 50 bucks.

what s your #1 most sought after vinyl record?

hands down The Shitlickers "Cracked Cop Skulls" 7', which in my humble opinion is the GREATEST punk record EVER MADE.

I have a Crosley all-in-one system and it's decent. It's nothing spectacular, but it was only $100.
I'd recommend that as a starter system or gift. The only bad thing about all-in-one systems is that if one part breaks, it can seriously have detrimental effects on the rest of the machine, rendering it useless.

I also use an old Jensen set up from my dad, but that's another story.

just a plain turn table

and I'm wondering if like 2.1 speakers would work well with them

the speakers are kind of shit, but should work ok in an office environment.  if not, you can always run an a cable from the RCA out into another pair of speakers

no I wouldn't really consider Stereo Total french, they're not well known out in Frog land. I had to look them up actually.
If you like Les Rita, give Les Negresses Vertes or La Mano Negra a listen! Same time period pretty much.

On a side note, I LOVE clear vinyl. Looks great and always seems to stay clean for some reason.

Thankfully my Dad is also an audiophile so i have access to 100's of classic rock vinyls by the band, bob dylan, eric clapton and many others. So much better than listening to crappy MP3 quality shit.

Great LP, honestly

One of the first LPs I ever bought. Have a special place in my mind for TFF


The Working Hour is one of my favorite songs of all time. I've got this one on vinyl too.

I finally picked up Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion after putting off buying it for a year or so.


Nights in White Satin for $1 pretty good for a 45. If you keep a look out, shops will sometimes just give away 45s (sometimes by the boxful).

Death Waltz for Assault and NY Reaper.
Their reissues are great, yet not cheap at all. I've got quite a few and they all sound amazing. Halloween II, III, The Fog, They Live, Escape from New York, Prince of Darkness, Twins of Evil, Let the Right one In... It's a feast for the ears and the eyes.

as mentioned, dealthwaltz is one of the best ones, but also check out Waxwork, One way Static, Mondo, and AMS/Cinevox (all of the Goblin records).  Light in the attic does distro for all of them in the US.

Last trip I made involved Herb Alpert's "Going Places", Leonard Cohen's "Death of a Ladies Man", Chic's "C'est Chic", Strauss' "Bonbon Aus Wien", and a faux-gold Barry White greatest hits that I couldn't pass up.

I think I spent $2 on this haul..

I'll post some more stuff later, going out in a few.

Picked up the Metal Blade sampler from a church thrift for $0.50.

Not only was the sampler in there, but also two '84 French Bootlegs of two live Metallica concerts.

Definitely one of my most interesting thrift finds.

I will post some of the other off-beat records I got at that same thrift store later.

Somebody (be it the record label or a fan) taped these photos into the inner sleeve.

I have about 100 LP's, I'd say. A lot of stuff I haven't listened to yet, but Ill try to break some of it down into favorites and new pickups

I own a lot of Jazz Vinyl. Like Chick Corea - Inner Space, Bob James - All Around The Town, Paul Desmond, Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Narada Michael Walden, Brook Benton, Jonah Jones, the list goes on and on.

Some of my favorite records I own are probably ones such as
Three Dog Night - Golden Bisquits
Roy Ayers - You Send Me
Duke Ellington - Far East Suite
Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door
Beatles - Abbey Road (Near mint, 1st pressing)
Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil 67' (Have like 2 records each of Herb Alpert and Sergio Mendes, great stuff)
Earl Klugh - Living Inside Your Love
And I have a 12" pressing of "8th Wonder" by The Sugar Hill Gang w/ Sugar Hill Groove on the B-Side.


New pickups include a Clapton record and more jazz.

DAMN! There are some must haves coming out this year.
Built to Spill's UAW is going to be prime! Same with Joy Division's An Ideal for Living. I'm quite excited for the Nirvana single, to be honest.
Tame Impala Live, Cake - Box Set, REM - Unplugged, David Lynch and the King Kong set all look like strong contenders.

I'm very surprised at a lot of the reissues this year. MGMT's first two albums are still available in record stores and on ebay --- yet they're already being reissued for RSD? Weird... They'll sell, regardless.

Medical records Alexander Robotnick "vintage Robotnicks"

skipped the Powerglove "Farcry" soundtrack because it was too expensive; its selling for a pretty penny on ebay, kind of kicking myself

Earth Hex repress preorder is up and very tempting - but I stopped buying vinyl a while ago and sold most of mine so I see no point really.

You know it's just kinda frustrating cause like 7 years ago when I was heavy into vinyl and going to the city every weekend digging for anything and usually not finding much - I recently was browsing through the vinyl area where I was selling off my records and they had fucking EVERYTHING and anything I could imagine - Boards of Canada, Electric Wizard ... shit that was really hard to come by if you didn't pick it up when it first came out. You kids got it easy now. Just sayin'. Have fun.

I see a lot of you guys have Crosleys and other terrible all-in-one turntables. Hit up craigslist and thrift store to buy vintage turntables, receivers and speakers. Be sure to get desired brands: Technics, Philips, Kenwood, Pioneer, Thorens, etc. Then, you can actually hear a difference in used analog records instead of wallowing in a hipster fad.

No Trend: self titled
VILE Solution: Original, Sealed
Drunkdriver: Born Pregnant Test Press
Homostupids: The Intern, Test Press
Pissed Jeans: Shallow
Shellac:1000 Hurts

I have been sifting through records I am not too stoked on any more and trading them in for credit towards some insane records that all through the door where I buy my stuff.

Electronic- Feel Every Beat 12" remixes (US promo)
VU & Nico (US 80s repress promo)
Bowie- Ziggy Stardust (OG US pressing)
Joy Division- Unknown Pleasure (German Metronome) -- sounds fantastic. if anyone finds this pressing, I would suggest picking it up versus the reissue

how many do you have?  get the Ikea Expedit.  it's essential, and if you don't have many records you can use the extra space for books, dvd's, etc...  Target has a version of it, too

i bought my girlfriend a record player for valentines day. i went out to some thrift stores last weekend and picked up a few cheap records, put them in a bag, then put them in my trunk and forgot to take them out and she found them later that night. she put two and two together so i let her open it early and we've been having fun listening to records all week. its just a cheap jensen i got off amazon. im thinking that if we actually get into collecting records and playing them often, i'll spring for a decent player/receiver/speakers, but for now i think what we have is fine. we have her dads old record collection which is mostly crap, but a few good ones here and there. i was wishing my dad would've given me his since they havent been played in over 20 years, but when i hinted at it he didnt take the bait. weve bought a few so far and im talking my girl record shopping before we go out on valentines day, so hopefully we will be able to find some good stuff.

what ive picked up so far:

BTO II
a random Roy Orbison joint
Bowie: Lets Dance
Paul Simon greatest
Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers
Smith: A group called smith
Joe Tex: Rub Down
and a few other randoms that i cant remember.


theres a pretty decent record store down the street from where i work and i was in there checking it out yesterday. they've got a huge selection of old r&b and jazz and tons of old motown and soul stuff. nothing really later than the 80 across the board though. since i was pretty much raised on rock, i dont really know shit about r&b and jazz, but i dig that kind of stuff, so i was wondering if anyone has any suggestions of records i could look for next time i stop in there.


sorry for the massive post. very slow day at work today.

anyone still into records? i remember posting about buying my girlfriend a turntable a few months ago and since then im the one whos turned into a record nerd. i think that ive always been a collector, but ive never really collected anything cool besides skate videos and now a days you only get a few physical releases a year, so my days of skate video collecting has kinda came to an end. i collected cds when i was a kid because i loved music and there was nothing cooler than having that giant binder full of cds, but once you could stream music from your phone and play it in your car, there was no real need to have any cds any more. i think vinyl is so cool because is something i really enjoy collecting and its some cool that i can share with my friends and family. i love it when people come over and they see all the records we have and they get to look through them and play something, or if i can pull out something that i know they will really like. i know i sound totally cliche, but playing records is so much more than just playing music. its just so much more fun.

I used to buy records regularly when I had a steady job and no debt. When I decided to go back to school 5 years ago money got really tight, so now I buy about 5 records a year, max. When I lived in SF I had some friends who worked at a strictly used record store, and they would always alert me when any rare/obscure country or rockabilly records would come in and hook me up big time.

Records have gotten offensively expensive over the last few years. The "record store day" collectors as I like to call them have really fucked everything up. There used to be the punk collectors and garage collectors and the ___ collectors, who basically paid high prices for very rare records in their niches. Now people see a brand new "limited edition" record and the price gets jacked up. The major labels have taken notice and joined in the fun. Now their releasing fucking EVERYTHING on vinyl, with sky high prices, and jamming up the pressing plants with complete dog shit. Small labels get fucked, the bands get fucked, the consumers who can't pay $17.99 for every fucking LP get fucked, everyone gets fucked.

Rant out of the way, I agree that records are much more satisfying to listen to and own. Having to box them up and haul them every time I move has gotten to be a burden though, so I'm getting to the point where I'm considering selling all of mine.

all spot on..

Years ago when I was at the height of my record buying, i used to make a trip to Ameoba (back when they actually had decent shit) and drop about $120 and come home with a huge stack of records, that would take me a week to get through.  I miss those days like crazy, brand new LP's for 9.99 and used for 2.99.  And at that time it was mostly new punk/garage/hip hop (mostly 12" singles for DJing), and everything else you had to get used.

I rarely buy records these days, part of that is due to downloading everything, but a larger part is the prices.  Awhile back I made a trip to the local shop I picked up both Hardcore Devo LP's and 1 other LP and it cost me 85 bucks. 

I've sold a good portion of mine over the last few years, when you're broke it comes in handy.  i think at my most I had around 1,000 or so but probably half that now.  Moving them is a bitch.

However, just yesterday I picked up the first LP I've gotten in probably 6 months:

ive been cruising a lot of garage sales lately and ive come up on some decent finds from anywhere from 25 cents to a buck a piece. some have been pretty shit quality, but most of them have been pretty decent. in the past month ive probably bought close to 40 lps from garage sales and i think only 2 or 3 have been too shitty to play. i dont really care about having limited edition stuff or even getting all my favorites on vinyl and paying $15+ on a record. ive had enough fun and enough luck with cheap stuff so far and id rather pay $20 and get a stack of records than pay $20 and get one. there have been a few that ive bought online because i couldnt resist and if i can i always try to get it from the band directly or from the label. i figure the right people get more of the money that way and surprisingly the prices are usually cheaper buying albums that way then they are on discogs and ebay. im working offsite today to see one of my jobs get printed on the offset press and this one record store j dilla used to always go to is just a few miles away, so im going to hit that up after i leave. theyre selection is awesome but ive only got $5 that i can spend so that kind of sucks. its probably good though because if i had more money i know id be blowing a bunch of it.

my collection is getting out of hand though and i sold a couple old film cameras i hadnt touched in a while to get some extra money for some ikea shelves. id say we have around 300, maybe more and right now all the records are lined up on the floor and its a pain in the ass pulling out the one you want to listen to when theres a that many records on either side of it. i upped my set up from the crappy all in one to a slightly less crappy kenwood turntable and an aiwa receiver, both which my grandma gave me. i bought some new polk bookshelf speakers from best buy that sound great, but just about anything would sound better than the turn table i was using. i want to hook the technics tt up that my dad gave me, but i need to make a ground wire for it to stop the blaring noise it makes when i plug it in. i was going to post a picture of everything once i get the shelves up, but that might not be for a few weeks.

yup, all true, but you can dodge all that shit. I mean there's at least 5 or 6 used record stores in my city, and I buy where the prices are still reasonable. I very rarely spend more than 15 euros on an LP, usually it's around 5 to 10. or even 1 to 5 euros at garage sales, record conventions etc.
Also I'm kinda glad the new stuff comes out on vinyl more regularly now. for instance I got the last Thundercat LP in a beautiful red vinyl, and no way would I have bought the CD/MP3.

Got my ikea shelf a few weeks ago and heres a little before and after. I'm really glad I got this because it was such a pain in the ass having the records on the floor. I just need to clean up the cords a bit and I think im going to hang another board over the tv so I can space out the speakers. My set up isnt the best, but I got the turn table and the receiver for free. The speakers were priced at $100 but I got them on sale for $75. They sound great and are pretty much perfect for being in an apartment. We have just over 400 lps and id say a good 3/4 of them were given to us from friends and family. I bought the shelf with money I got from selling an old camera, so I'm pretty stoked to have all this without having to pay a ton of money because I know this can be an expensive hobby.

Woah, I somehow have(or had?) that TRK album. I have no idea how or when I ended up with it, but it must have been at least 12-15 years ago. I also know almost nothing about it other than I remember it sounding sort of like Men's Recovery Project or Fast Forward. I remember it having a Load records/Providence RI vibe. Now I want to hear it again.

i think it came out in 01 from a band in RI, so youre right about that. i was watching a video on youtube where some guy was showing some of his records and he pulled that one out. the way he described it sounded like something i wanted to hear but i honestly couldnt find anything online about it besides one review on a blog. no youtube links, no spotify, nothing, and that just made me want to hear it more. i found it on discogs and with shipping i paid $9 and some change. im definitely happy with it. most of the records i own are pretty basic stuff, so its cool to have a few that are more obscure and less known. the cover art is amazing too.

Went to a garage sale today. The guy had tons and said it was mostly stuff he has that he doesn't take to record shows because its was pretty common stuff or not worth too much. I think I found some pretty good stuff though. I got everything here for $23.

This might be random, but I thought maybe someone might have some input. I recently purchased an old Garrard DD75 turntable and a pair of Klipsch Heresy speakers. I wondered if you guys had any suggestions for amp/preamp setup. I'm on a budget and just want something simple and efficient. My friend suggested a Pro-Ject phono box preamp with a Dayton Audio DTA120 amp. Gets me where I want to be for a little over $200. What do you guys work with and do you have any advice for a complete idiot in way over his head?

seriously ?? the LP's and 45's, all for 23 bucks ??
fuck me, where do you live? I want to go there.

I mean just the Stevie record, or the Mandrill or Isaac Hayes for instance, could fetch 20/40 euros here in Europe, in a regular shop. If they're US pressings and in good condition

I live outside of Detroit. This was definitely my best haul yet. I've had some decent luck with garage sales this year, but theyre totally hit or miss. I've spent hours on Saturdays driving around to garage sales and found nothing, but days like this one make up for the bad ones. I'm definitely more of a bargain shopper when it comes to records and I don't really care about having an original pressing or anything like that. As long as its in decent condition and the price is cheap, thats all I worry about. I'm not sure what issues any of these are, but all the jackets are pretty worn, so I doubt anything is worth too much. So far the vinyl on everything sounds good for being that old. The James Brown LP was a little crackly and the 45s were pretty rough, but the Meters one sounded better than the rest.

I've heard that a lot of soul/funk/r&b stuff is pretty tough to find in Europe. The popular stuff gets a little pricier here and I think its because you've now got a lot more young people starting to collect and everyone wants those classic records, so shops have upped their prices. You can find good stuff for good prices if you look hard enough and get lucky though.
Title: Re: Vinyl Records
Post by: OldieButFrenchie on August 17, 2015, 11:55:54 PM
oh right if you live around Detroit it makes sense I guess. Lots of music history there.
Anyways I'm pretty much the same as you, bargain shopper, but bargains are way harder to find here in Europe! at least for soul-r&b or any american music. which is normal, same as buying french wine is way pricier in the US.

also the pressing stuff does make a difference as European pressings were of inferior quality. US pressing have heavier vinyl/cover and you feel it immediately when you take the record in hand. congrats on that haul man!!

I randomly found a bunch of Jesus & Mary Chain original pressings at a thrift store that were still in the plastic. Somebodys girlfriend must have gotten pissed and dumped their shit. Also got a few Broken Social Scene records at the same time that were in the plastic. Pretty weird findings but I spent $3.00 and am very pleased

MY god dad recently gave me one of his record players that he found in his garage and started me off with a few vinyls. Since then, I've been hitting up thrift stores and trying to see what I can get on the low. It's been a lot of fun picking up random records and listening to them once I get home. Where do you guys usually get your records?

Where do you guys usually get your records?


ive never found anything too good at thrift stores. i got a few 45s at one up in the upper peninsula last time i was there, shocking blue, golden earing, a local up north band called da yoopers. other than those, all i ever find in thrift stores is christmas albums, 40s and 50s comps, and herb alpert. some people hit the jackpot and find great stuff though, but those are people who go to the same thrift store like 4 or 5 times a week.

I've gotten a bunch of good records over the summer from garage sales, but they're really hit or miss. you have to get there early because there are record sharks in every town that hit garage sales as soon as they open on the weekends and swoop up anything good, or everything all together.

record stores are fun, but it takes a little time and experience to know what to spend money on and what to pass up. the more you dig and the more places you go, you'll learn that certain things can be found in other places for cheaper, or if you constantly see a record you want going for a lot, but then suddenly find it for a cheaper price, you know its probably a good buy. the thing to keep in mind with a record store is that you shouldn't feel obligated to spend you're whole budget, or even spend any money at all. just buy what you really want, otherwise you'll end up with a bunch of garbage that you'll never listen to. think about what you're looking for before you go and check discogs.com and see what the typical prices are. i usually find most of my records cheaper than what they go for online, so its a good way to gauge whether something is a good deal or not. and don't blow all your money on classic rock staples when you're first trying to build your collection. you could easily spend $30+ on a beatles/zeppelin/pink floyd reissue, but if you just wait long enough you'll find a used one somewhere for dirt cheap.

flea markets can be good too. just try to know how much something is worth before you buy though. i got ripped off pretty big at a flea market when i first started buying. some people think their 1970s junk rock is worth its weight in gold, and there are people stupid enough to pay for it.

Thanks for the advice JB. I'll definitely be price checking. For now I've been lucky at goodwill and have found some jazz, soul, and other stuff for 1-3 bucks.

Flea markets are something that I do plan to hit up more often now. Found a bit of stuff for cheap there too.

id say you did pretty damn good considering the lady who sells records at my local flea market doesnt sell anything decent for less than $8. i did manage to get an original of "lust for life" from her for $12 but she got the better end of the deal that day though because i paid $8 for "please" by the pet shop boys and since then ive found that album all over the place for less than $5.

Been digging for about 8 years now, and have some heavy jazz / soul / funk stock built up.  I just got back to the states after spending nearly a year down in Ecuador, and have been getting into some more International grooves and world music.  Picked up some great Andean pan flute albums during my time down there, and am currently finding myself in a blues / reggae / metal phase - strange blends indeed.  I love the inconsistency though, and I've finally cleaned out some old stock and reissues in my collection, so it's all original presses now...probably about 700 albums in all.  My girlfriend has been telling me for a minute now that she's just going to cash out and get me an MPC so I can put all this wax to some further use...time will tell, but thats an invitation down the rabbit hole, and she might never see me again!

Anyways, the paycheck can't really support the habit right now, but that won't stop the addict - I'm still making the weekly Boston / Cambridge record store pilgrimage, and catching the occasional eBay / Discogs dig.  I know some good people out in Western Mass who run record stores too, so the stock is always growing, albeit at a different pace.

Here's a Halloween weekend playlist (+ an Italian/African/Blues mood) from last month.  Had to crank the speakers the fuck out and piss the neighbors off for a few hours, but hey, you can't listen to Sleep and Metallica at a level other than "Fucking Max".  I'll drop some new snags when I get back to my house after this Turkey Weekend Getaway.

i just found out about chrome earlier this year and i really love their stuff. such a weird and goofy band. i dont think ive heard into the eyes of the zombie king, so ill have to check that out. the only stuff im really familiar with is the early stuff with both damon edge and helios creed. i definitely want to pick up more of their stuff, but so far half machine was the only album ive been able to find in a shop.

i recently bought

dinosaur jr. - beyond (new, 19bucks, expensive i know, but i needed it and didn't want to support tax evader amazon)
the cure - boys dont cry (used from fleamarket, 1986 greek pressing, near mint 10 bucks)
nick cave and the bad seeds - the good son (new, 19 bucks)
crosby stills nash and young - 4 way street (used from fleamarket, 6)bucks
abba - super trouper (used from fleamarket, 1buck)
bonny m - take the heat of me (used from fleamarket, 1buck)
herbert gronemeyer - bochum (used from fleamarket, 1buck)

I've been into music and records for a long time now... I did the majority of my record buying in my late teens to late 20's; I even basically stopped skating and did nothing but buy/read/research about records for awhile.  Unfortunately as bills pile up (and my interest waned) I sold a lot of them off, keeping the "essentials" (although looking back I got rid of some really good shit).  Well lately I've been wanting to build up again, it's a lot more expensive then it used to be... especially when I'm re-buying things I sold years back.  Feels good though!

pretty stoked on all of these... The most expensive was the Dwarves "Free Cocaine" double LP which I already have, but the newest version has a much better cover/gatefold photos.

Both the singles are reissues, that Middle Class 7" is one of my favorite punk records ever.

Yeah, the original cover of Free Cocaine is pretty lame. Love the Dwarves, hate their logo. I had no idea that was repressed, I should grab a copy. The Burger Records dudes are cool too so that's a plus. That Mummies LP probably wasn't cheap either.

Mummies wasn't too bad... that's the state of vinyl buying today is that valuable used records are still cheaper than new ones!  The Supercharger LP goes for damn near $40 - $50, but I got mine for really cheap.

Frontier records is one of few Hardcore labels you can still get cheap first/early pressings from though. Dischord, SST, any of the smaller labels, forget about it. I'm happy I got most of my Hardcore shit pre-vinyl trend. Not trying to be elitist, some cool shit has been re-pressed that would never have even been thought press 10+ years ago. I'm seriously waiting a re-press of the Twin Peaks soundtrack (I've heard one's on its way).

I feel like it has been on its way for ages... Isn't it Death Waltz that is supposed to re-relase it ?

well vinyl on the whole is a lot more expensive in Europe. And bands like Suicidal have real following so it's actually hard to find their stuff (without using the web).
PLus there's crazy speculation on some stuff....I have a pretty good collection of early French rap, like 80's and 90's stuff and I've seen some of those records go for over 200/300 euros! I'm considering selling some of it but I'm also pretty attached to it....pieces of my youth basically. But I imagine this shit must be pretty exotic for you guys!

Yup. It was originally set to be released in January, but there was a hold up, of course. Heard they did the test presses last year, so hopefully they're out by the end of the year. They're on the pricey side, but it's always worth it. I have a cassette copy of the original, vinyl copies are at least $100 bucks.

well french rap is derivative of US shit, so you have no real reason to listen to it I guess....maybe you remember this though?

Ah, that's on one of the Jazzmatazz records right? I only have Vol. II, I should get on copping the other 2. I'm pretty sure my last roommate had that single.

i looked it up because i thought it was a wu tang record. prices on discogs looked insane, but when i went to listen to them on spotify, i saw they had merch links for both "go tell fire to the mountain" and "we bros" on vinyl for pretty fair prices. i dont know how legit it is, but maybe check it out if you really want that album.

edit: nevermind, both are out of stock.

they sound like a pretty cool band. i cant understand what the singer is saying, but i dont really pay much attention to lyrics anyway. never heard of them before now.

Stoked as fuck for all of these, as every one is a classic.  Just yesterday I picked up those two 7", Firestarter and the very first Go-Go's 7" when they were still on Stiff records and more of a punk band... the version of We Got The Beat is way better than the more famous version.

Pretty excited about that Ebba Gron LP, those are not easy to find stateside.

Are you talking about the True Grit outtakes?  Oh man... it's all they stuff they recorded for their very first LP from 1978 when they were still more of a glam/skinhead/pub rock band.  It absolutely rules, although the versions on the original are a little better sounding than True Grit:

Cock Sparrer - I need a witness (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Amr5ESRK0z0#)
Cock Sparrer - We Love You 1977 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eHwT3GTDlA#)

Slayed? is the best, but Old Borrowed and Blue rips just as hard. (btw I bought that Slayed but I already have another copy, so if you're looking for one let me know)

I actually got that one on discogs... Had to pay a bit for shipping but worth it.  I love the Dogs, particularly the first two singles.  Their albums are hit or miss but I really love that LP.  I'm a huge fan of French punk... a lot of French music actually (and art, movies, fashion, women, etc..) a Francophile you could say.  I hear stuff like the Dogs or a lot of the 60s French pop is really easy to find in France?  I need to make a trip there and go on a spree

I'd say yes, fairly easy to find. But prices have been going kinda nuts lately....
Especially underground stuff on small labels that did not press many copies. But Dogs were signed on a major so it shouldnt'be too bad.

Oh yeah... there's always gonna be the expensive, hard to find stuff... but I know stuff like The Dogs and Marie Et Les Garcons which are hard to find in the U.S. but much more common there.  Same goes for some of that original 60's pop like Francoise Hardy and Jacques Dutronc.. over here it's really collectable but there it's pretty easy to find (so I hear, I could be wrong).

And man I may take you up on that!  I'm dying to go there within the next few years!

I've recently started to really work on expanding my collection, for a long time I'd just pick up a record here and there but I recently started getting heavy into shit like the Crate Diggers series on YouTube. Amoeba does some segment called "What's In My Bag?" so I've found a lot of cool stuff through that too. Started making a list of records I'm looking for. I've been trying to expand my hip-hop collection to start. Found a couple Public Enemy singles, "Fight The Power" and "Night of the Living Baseheads" on what I believe are first pressings. Also grabbed a Nas/AZ single for "The Essence" which is pretty dope. Each one was like $5.00 so I can't complain. I haven't gone deep into the whole Discogs pricing stuff so maybe I'm being ripped off, I have no idea.

I've recently started to really work on expanding my collection, for a long time I'd just pick up a record here and there but I recently started getting heavy into shit like the Crate Diggers series on YouTube. Amoeba does some segment called "What's In My Bag?" so I've found a lot of cool stuff through that too. Started making a list of records I'm looking for.

I haven't gone deep into the whole Discogs pricing stuff so maybe I'm being ripped off, I have no idea.

I went through all that stuff too when I first got obsessed. I have a list in my phone a mile long of records I'd like to own, but after a while I stopped looking at it. If I go record shopping now, I just look and if find something, great, if i don't, thats great too. Too often I'd find myself buying crappy records just because I wanted to buy SOMETHING. I'd play them once then they would take up space on the shelf. I finally sold a bunch back not so long ago and used the money to get a Liars album that I really wanted. One good album is better than 30 ok albums if you ask me, especially when you already have hundreds. I think the coolest thing about record collecting is that it broadened my musical knowledge by a ton. I found tons of great bands and even realized that I like some bands that I previously thought I didnt like.

And discogs is pretty cool about some things. Just about everything I've gotten from there, I've gotten for below the median price. A few at the lowest price its ever went for. I put records that I know are I probably wont find in a store on my discogs wishlish and if one pops up at a price I like, I buy it. The thing about discogs though, is good record store owners HATE it when you whip out your phone in their store to check the price of a record. They know anyone can go online and probably get anything they want for cheaper than what they can afford to sell it at the store, but there store is there for more than the money. You're a skateboarder, you know what the local shop mean. Theres a guy I work with that I've gone digging with on lunch and he's the guy who's on his phone checking everything he pulls and I've seen the shop owners get a little upset when they realize what hes doing. You dont want to be that guy.

Yeah, absolutely. I don't ever want to get that that 30,000 records "I bought this album for one 30 second sample" guy because I'm not a fucking DJ or anything, I'd just like to have a solid collection. I've definitely purchased a few questionable records just because I had money to burn on something dumb. I have a buddy who will buy 5 copies of the same album to have every colour variant of the pressing, it's fun to look through but it's a little excessive. I have a habit of being a completest when it comes to music, so my lists usually just pertain to everything I can find from a particular artist. I know it isn't vinyl, but with everyone wanting to collect stuff on wax people are dumping their CD collections. I've found a bunch of great stuff real cheap at Value Village and other thrift stores. They're so picked over for vinyl more often than not I won't even bother looking.

In regards to being the Discogs guy in the store I could never do that, equating it to a skateshop is a great example. I'd never stand in a shop and price check everything.

Exactly. A good collection has to live and records sometime have to go in order to make space for the new ones.
I have so much stuff I haven't listened to in ages, some I want to keep but some will be better in someone else's home.

not for me......I'd say one good = 3 ok ones!
I just love to have variety. And there's a lot of stuff I bought just cause it was dirt cheap and it opened me up to some amazing shit. Just lately I bought 2 Emerson Lake and Palmer LPs, and I was never into prog-rock but these 2 blew me away!

Nothing for sale at the moment (I usually just post a record at a time since people never have bought multiple records from me at once, maybe the shit I post is too random?).Not really a fan of selling. I used to give them to a friend to sell since he had much higher traffic/inventory at his shop. I've been debating throwing a handful of records on there, but I hate having records potentially just sitting there for months on end. Take a look at my partial collection if you feel so inclined. When I first got on discogs I posted some of my collection but quit and I never update with stuff I find at record stores or at shows. I may have METZ first record too somewhere (bought it at a show because they were pretty good live but I found the record to be underwhelming).

Yeah, it's a pretty trite an pointless task, especially if your collection's always changing. My singles would take fucking forever, never mind the LPs. So I pretty much just gave up. Also, depending on the records, some aren't even worth selling (like the trash in my closet) so you might as well just keep them and get "cool guy" points. Quantity.

Other notable difference: I never buy 45's. Listening time is too short for my lazy ass.

But I love Mingus and Palmieri, the other 2 are nice discoveries so thanks!

Personnaly I haven't bought too much stuff lately but that new Thundercat album has great packaging. 4 red vinyls. And the music is fabulous of course.

Neil Young-Harvest Moon. Just got it in the mail. It's the "Record Store Day" version which I don't care about but stoked to finally have this record. First time it's pressed/released in the U.S, I know it was released somewhere in Europe when it was first release in 1992. This version is rad because it is a double LP with side D has the cover printed on it. Highly recommend giving it a listen if you're into Neil Young or similar artists.

Damaged Bug and King Gizz were ordered online, all the rest came from my local shop. I almost bought Sabbath's Master of Reality from them the other day but they wanted $20 for a late 70's repress and it definitely didn't sound like it was worth $20. It really bums me out when shops do that shit.

Also preordered the deluxe version of the new Parquet Courts album that drops in May and I got an inside scoop that Castle Face is releasing a Uranium Club live in San Francisco album later this year which is as good as bought from me.

I desperately need a new record player. All I have is one of those shitty Crosby ones that basically fuck up your records. Any tips on something that'll be good on my wallet yet decent in sound?

I would suggest hitting a thrift shop or flea market and getting an old player if parts aren't working get em cheap on ebay. Magnavox is great in my opinion

The best deal you'll probably get on something that is in good working condition is at a pawn shop, and then i'd just get a replacement stylus online (will significantly improve the sound)

How do you define “good on the wallet”? I use a Technics SL-1200 (definitely not the lightest on the wallet) and a Pro Ject Debut Carbon, which I’ve seen go on sale for about $299 from time to time (with all of the bells and whistles), and I’d say is well worth it to not trash your records and to sound like pricier models. I’ve also heard good things about the U-Turn Orbit Basic, which look easy to upgrade and I usually see around $180. I feel like a douche putting it like this, but I wouldn’t spend less than $120 on a turntable unless you find a ridiculous deal on something used (I got my Technics at an estate sale for about $500 below average, so if you have the time, peep some out). I’m curious about some of the U-Turns myself, actually.

These go on sale every now and again. Most people seem pretty happy with them. Otherwise the best bet is probably craigslist and garage sales. Record stores sometimes sell used gear too.

I always tell people to start with older friends and relatives. I've gotten multiple full set ups for free from my family and friends who had old stuff collecting dust.

I have one that is upgraded and it's great. My buddy just got one as well, the basic model and he loves it. No frills, sounds great. My only minor complaint is that switching between 33 1/3 and 45rpm is kinda a pain. There's a trick to it that I haven't mastered.

You have to take off the plate/move the band? If so, I have to do that with the Pro Ject, and yeah, it’s a bit irritating.

Any vinyl heads into old school country? This is coming out in April. Featuring Lloyd Green on pedal steel. Recorded at Cinderella Studios in Nashville with Wayne Moss...one of the guitarists that played the famous "Oh, Pretty Woman" by Roy Orbison among many other hits....

Less than 300 copies printed and once they're gone, they're gone. If you're a country music nerd, this is a big deal as these older cats are mostly gone, the rest are in their 80's....

I've got the Audio Technica 120 (or, I bought it for my wife and she'll probably get in in the divorce). It's a Technics copy and really well made (included needle is just OK). I think I paid $250 for it new.

Kink Kronicles pops up fairly often and that's an outstanding double album compilation of mid period Kinks. Has a bunch of good singles as well from the Face to Face/Something Else/Village Green/Arthur era.

Speaking of those albums, I need to cop them on vinyl but they're getting more and more expensive and the reissues are often more than $30!



On a somewhat related note, I picked up copies of This Is Modern World, All Mod Cons, Setting Sons, and Sound Affects in nice condition for $10 a piece! I was ecstatic.

Got the Uranium Club Live in Italy "Fine Dining" addition a few days ago and just picked up the new Sleep album on green vinyl.

It's been super hard to listen to records lately because the floor in my house is pretty shaky. I had my turntable mounted on a shelf on the wall at my apartment, and we were on the ground floor, so you could jump up and down next to it and you wouldn't bounce the needle. Now I've just got it sitting on top of my record shelf and it bounces even if you tiptoe around the room. We also have a 6 year old kid who's only speed is full blast, so if he's awake I can't listen to records. The only time I really get to play them is if I'm home alone and thats rare.

I'm going to put everything in my basement along with my drums and guitar shit, but its like a construction/demolition site down there and will remain in that state until I have the time to rent a dumpster and clean my mess up.

went on a little shopping spree in Brussels yesterday, after months of abstinence from record buying...felt good!
First 2 shops were overpriced but I found good shit in the unassuming third one, that sells also used books.

All in all: 38 euros for 4 LP, so pretty good deals. And I had totally forgotten about the Subhumans, rad rediscovery!

Record on top is Purple, by Baroness. That one I got new from Amazon cause it's just an amazing album and I've been listening to it A LOT on MP3 and I felt I should buy it to support them. Did not regret it! Cover looks amazing on vinyl and sound quality allowed to me to hear details I had not heard in digital version.

Anyone have experience taking apart and servicing a Linear Tracking turntable? I'm hooking up my pops hand me down and its stopping about two minutes in. I found out I need to clean the track and maybe change the belt out on it but I also need to replace the audio cables because one of them isn't transmitting to the left speaker. Anything I should be careful or any helpful tips when i'm taking it apart?

Also in adding to the thread in general I picked up
Tool Opiate
Music From/Inspired by Natural Born Killers
Dr Octagon
And a Album from The Band recently.

maybe give reddit a shot. maybe r/vintageaudio or r/audiophile might be helpful. r/vinyl only gives a shit about kendrik lamar and gorillas albums, but theres a sidebar there that has all the other related subs.

if you can't figure it out and you don't have a shop that repairs old gear, it might be best to just get something new.

After 2 receivers that didnt work from goodwill and the Yamaha PX-3 I got from my pops didnt work out I finally have a system going. Got a Crosley C6 turntable at the local record shop and found a Yamaha receiver for 100$ at the electronic store. New vinyl lately has been:
The Sword High Country
Deftones White Pony
The Village People Cruising (i'm gay and it was 3$ couldn't resist)
Modest Mouse This is a Long drive for someone with nothing to think about

Bought my a record from Municipal Waste at a show hes been dealing with some DWI charges and couldn't shell out the cash so I called it a early birthday gift.

Still need to get some Mastodon, Sabbath, Melvins, and Sleep. Lateralus would be cool as well as Animals by Floyd. I have In the wake of poseidon by King Crimson but I really want to cop In the court.

Anyone else come up on some cool shit?

Then today I preordered the new album by Aussie geniuses, Terry.
