Anybody here still collect vinyl?

I've got really into it this past year and it's quite addictive.
Just wondered how many records you guys have, and what ones are your most treasured...

I love my Elliott Smith records, but my most valued is probably the 1st press of The Blood Brothers - Crimes.

I have TAYF on yellow vinyl, the latest Make Believe, and a GUK 7". I plan on getting more in the future.

i'm starting to have a collection about 30-35 albums/LPs and about 20-25 singles atm. lol if records weren't so expensive i'd have a lot more . I've got an old record player from the early 90's running through and old 70's 8-track deck(bypass, the speakers won't plug directly into the record player) and into a decent sized subwoofer. Needless to say i really enjoy listening to records on that. Oh and to sleep sickness' questions: My first bought record was Nirvana- Bleach and the most i've spent is about $45au on a record.

Everyone has vinyl again these days. So uncool.

Saying that... http://rateyourmusic.com/collection/disconcerted/oo,fmt.LP - the result of years of collecting bits and pieces.

Can't remember what the first record I bought was, but I remember the stuff that's cost me the most (and generally the rarest)...
3. Texas is the Reason - Do you know who you are (white vinyl - limited to 92 copies - around £50)
2. Mountain Goats - Come, come to the sunset tree (hand painted cover + even rarer comic - around £60)
1. Can Am Des Puig - Book of Am (150 page 12"x12" book and 2LP - £75)

So glad I bought the Cap'n Jazz LP years ago as well because lately they've been costing more on ebay.

Best pop-punk/emo 7" I have is the Jimmy Eat World / Christie Front Drive split.

none of mines that rare and quite a lot of it were student-loan funded impulse buys that i now wish i could get rid of.

recently sold the debut enter shikari 7" on ebay and the first angels and airwaves 7" too, managed to make £20 between them, not bad considering i got em for 99p each.

very nice. i can't believe you've got stuff by acid mother's temple! i saw them at a gig in cardiff once. absolutely mental.

alot of mine were student-loan funded too and now that i'm heavily overdrawn, i'm thinking i should never have entered this seedy vinyl underworld.

i think the reason vinyl is facing a rejuvenation of sorts is because of stuff like iPods. If a buy a cd, i'll upload it to my computer and probably never use the cd again. Other than for the car, I can't remember the last time I got out a cd and put it in a stereo to listen to or anything.
for me, records put value back into music. it feels more like i own something. (i know that sounds hammy)
but i mean, if i want to listen to it, i have to make an effort to put it on. look after it. and listen through a whole album without constantly skipping tracks. and the artwork/record sleeves is a nice thing to have. oh, and the sound quality ain't bad either

i never really get the point of 7"s, other than for collecting purposes I guess. i never buy them as i find them a nuisance to play.

oh and another question, do most of you play your records or are many of them for collection purposes?

that is the exact reason why i haven't started to invest in any! i used to buy a crap load of cds a couple of years back which meant i spent pretty much all my part time wages on them. i fear that if i start buying vinyl then i'll get into the same hole.

i've just started "collecting".

the first one i bought was The Dark Side of the Moon.
I found Rocks by Aerosmith and Coda from Led Zeppelin yesterday at a record store.

i figure i'll start by buying my favorite albums first, then i'll start looking for rarities.

True, AMT are a bit mental, but played at the right time though they're absolutely amazing.

That's possibly true about the iPod, hadn't ever looked at it that way. Doubt most kids treat a record any different from a CD though.
Only problem with records is the fact they warp. Unfortunate flaw.

Nothing wrong with 7"s, much better if you only like a couple of tracks.

I'll happily play all of my records, some are to complete collections but I don't see the point in buying a record if you're never going to listen to it. Even if I happened to get one worth £500 I'd still play it - although probably wearing a pair of those white gloves.

^ Well there's no point in buying something if you're never going to make use of it. It's like these people that buy old Ferraris. What the hell is the point in spending £3million (Chris Evans I'm looking at you!) on one that you're just going to keep locked away?!
