Hey, how many of you collect vinyl records? I started collecting maybe 6 months ago at the most and so far I have...

Janis Joplin - Greatest Hits
Jefferson Starship - Winds of Change
Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow
Simon & Garfunkel - Greatest Hits
Paul Simon - Graceland
Iggy & The Stooges - Raw Power
The Yardbirds - Little Games
Wierd Al Yankovic - Dare to be Stupid

My parents have a ton of good stuff too that they're contemplating giving me at some point.

Not me... Didn't they halt production like 15 years ago? :confused:

I thought that too for awhile but it seems like they didn't. I've seen brand new vinyl copies of new albums from "new" artists in my local independent music stores. It seems like vinyl is now produced for a much more select market, whereas you can find CDs everywhere. And I've bought all of mine, except for Raw Power, used.
 
I've been thinking about getting all the Beatles albums in vinyl for a while now.
 
my dad has a full cabinet full of them. he has all The Beatles albums. lots of Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, Cream, Rolling Stones, you know that kind of stuff.
 
Good luck with that. Well, I guess they aren't all that hard to find. My local independent store has a few. They even have the rare Yesterday & Today featuring the cover that has the doll parts and meat...for around $200 or so.
 
no they are not hard to find if you go to the right places. my dad got alot of them at a place called "Vintage Stock." they are all high in price though. he got some off ebay also.

thanks. i've got a lot more- but those are the ones i already had in a file that i could easily copy and paste.
 
I got a bunch of old Beatles stuff that i just threw in my closet
 
I have every album by the Beatles, Cream, a copy of Taking Back Sunday's first album, a copy of Underoath's latest album, and a copy of ACDC Back In Black
 
I'm sure they would be worth something. And as for callously tossing vinyl of the greatest rock band ever...tsk tsk. Anyway, I'm guessing you're not a Beatles fan, are you?
 
I'm still a vinyl connoiseur....

While I own about 100 CD's, I have over 600 Lp's and about 400 singles.

I'll go out of my way to pick up a new vinyl release (if it's available) as opposed to simply getting the all-too accesible CD.

Vinyl still rocks.... CD's are for wimps.

Cheers... :)

You just described everything I aspire to:eek:

Does anybody know where one could pick up a record player at a relatively cheap price?

That's worth a ton!

I own about 700 or 800 cds, but I made a pact with myself a few months ago never to buy a cd again if possible.
I'll download mp3s to try stuff out, and if i like them i'll buy the vinyl (when available). there's just no point to buying music in a digital format.


what are some of your favorites, manofbat?
 
Just the new ones by the bands i like picture disks are cool
 
Rick Springfield- Working Class Dog
Rush- Fly By Night
Queen- News of the World
Styx- Pieces of Eight
Steve Martin- Let's Get Small
Journey- Identify
Simon and Garfunkel- Bridge Over Troubled Water

I would have like 50 more but my grandma chucked my uncle's old records and my dad is to lazy to pick his up.

Poophead, I'm not a wimp! ;)

I try to get old 50-60's vinyl to keep "in Theme"
