    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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?

    Yep. And I was just in there today and I was mistaken about the price. They're charging $750 for it.

    Anyway, I bought these today...

    Elvis Costello & The Attractions - Armed Forces
    Stray Cats - Stray Cats
    Creedence Clearwater Revival - Willy and The Poor Boys
    Steely Dan - The Royal Scam
