I found all of my father's old records the other day, and let me just say, my father listened to some quality stuff back in the day.

Oh jesus, here it comes. My personal private collection, i've been working on it obsessively for about a year and a half now. I also took the liberty to put them alphabetically.

*list*

Wow, sweetness! Some really good stuff there. I don't know why, but I'd like to have a big collection someday. It just seems...neat. I'll work on my CD collection first though, as I can actually use them at the moment.

im a n00b when it coms to vinyl stuff
so tell me, are there any "advantages" (lack of a better word) to buying vinyls?


Superior sound quality to CDs & Mp3s. That and the novelty of having the Big album art.

It's entirely relative. For some, it's a more definite and concrete medium of the music. The sound quality is richer (depending if the LP is taken care of, the needle is fresh, and if the player is in stable condition), and there's a different feel/mood when using them as you are taking time and effort in listening to the music rather than slouching on the couch and hitting play on a whim for your MP3 player. It's more about the experience and sound of it I'd say - but to each their own.

I just like the big art to be honest. I also like how it forces you to listen to the album as a whole, and not a collection of tracks.

I forgot to mention in my first post that I have a box of classic rock albums that a friend of my dad's gave me. I don't listen to any of those bands, so I don't really count it in my collection.

So, what are some good online vinyl stores for full albums? Links please, and thanks!



I generally avoid buying vinyl online to be honest, it always gets warped in the mail

If there are no record stores near you I guess just check out eBay.

I have more vinyl than I can list. Between the better half and I we have close to 1900 albums. But remember that was the major format for both of us.

I prefer vinyl for the reasons listed above--the art is so great. You won't see the Roger Dean's and Hipnosis covers anymore because the art is far to intricate or detailed for the current formats. I have albums on vinyl and CD and despite some of the hiss and pop, vinyl does sound richer.

Check out charity shops, goodwills etc as well as used book and record stores. You'd be surprised what you can find.

Ebay is pretty good to give the obvious answer. Vinyl Collective is good for the current punk scene.

I've bought all my vinyl through the mail (as there isn't a record story near me) and I've never had a problem with warping.

Antique stores will usually also carry a section (perhaps in the back) with carts full of them for $1 - $5 as I've seen.

I forgot to mention (as done here) about the artwork as well. The LP cover is a little treasure in your collection. I remember looking through the covers and insides of my Jethro Tull LP "Thick as a Brick". I read through most of the articles and just enjoyed it. It's something I'll say, the artwork is a plus for authenticity.

My best advice is to look around your town/nearest city for some locally owned record shops, if you ask around, you might be suprised how many you find.

I've got a couple dozen vinyl records. I have all the Simon & Garfunkel albums on vinyl which I'm actually a bit proud of. Other than that I have some classics like Rumours, Hunky Dory, Dark Side of the Moon, some personal picks and a bit of new stuff.

Latest:


Tim Buckley - Goodbye and Hello

Such a great album.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

My dad has a pretty sweet vinyl collection. I was playing some today. Some standouts are:

John Lennon - Imagine
Pink Floyd - The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon
Blue Oyster Cult - Secret Treaties
Several Bob Dylan records
Several Neil Young records
A couple of supertramp albums

There's a whole massive box of them. The ones I listed are just from memory. There are some great records in there.

i started collecting vinyl in january, here is my current collection:

http://www.discogs.com/collection?user=divid3d

only a few people on this forum will know any of those artists/releases haha.

i'll take a pic of my coloured records and picture discs and post them here if this thread is still relatively alive when i remember to do it

I also like how it forces you to listen to the album as a whole, and not a collection of tracks.

how so? you can drop the needle anywhere you like... please explain.

No. I've never heard of any of those artists. But that's probably because I go out of my way to search for ambient records and electronica not so much. Lemon Jelly is my favorite electronica group, as clichéd as that is.


Quote by divid3d

I'm pretty sure they meant that you can't just hit a "skip track" option on the turntable. Sure if you really wanted to skip a track you could just drop the needle to a different area of the vinyl. It's just a matter of memorizing where the tacks begin and end. I know most records, if they have the space to permit it, have several seconds of silence between each track indicating a physical space on the vinyl itself as to where the needle should go for a different track.

That's all I know about the matter

i find picking up the needle and placing it elsewhere just as easy as pushing a button, so i don't understand his comment.

you don't even need to place the needle in the space between two tracks, you can read the grooves and place it at a particular point during a song if you like (which is even easier than doing the equivalent action using cds where you have to hold a button and skip through the song).

Nice man, you have some sweet albums. Are you a DJ?

I love vinyl...i have a few different turntables. Although I have much more digital music and CD's, I just like to play records when I'm just chilling out listening to music.

Vinyl just feels like much more of an experience - going out crate-diving or to nice record shops, putting it on, finding the right groove with the needle, flipping the vinyl over etc...

Plus I always think it's a bit of a cheat when DJ's don't have any vinyl, or don't know how to mix and scratch properly on vinyl

Well then, I suppose it's subjective then as to what is easy and what isn't.

I assumed the user was talking about MP3 tracks on a computer and not a CD player, in which case (comparing it to the CD player) a turntable is much more versatile in selecting what portion of the song is to be played.

I started two weeks ago, so far I've got

Rush - Moving Pictures ($0.99)
Pink Floyd - The Wall ($0.49)
Led Zeppelin IV ($2.99)
Steve Miller Band - Fly Like An Eagle ($0.99)

is that good?
The Wall has tape on it (the cover) and the cover to Fly Like An Eagle is a bit bent-ish

the best way to understand it is to watch DJs in action, speak to them, and listen to mixes so you can hear what the DJ is doing.

if you have any questions i'd be happy to try and answer them
