    I own Oh Mercy by Bob Dylan on vinyl and that's it. My parents threw out all theirs for some idiotic reason :(

    Although my uncle has an amazing collection that I couldn't even begin to type out.

    You can buy vinyl versions of almost all albums released nowadays. You just need to find where to look. Most DJs still buy vinyl except for those who have moved to cd. For audiophiles only the best turntables and cartridges/needles touch their vinyl (10,000 to 10s of thousands for equipment). But for regular guy or the newly aspiring audiophile who just wants to listen to his new (old) beatles record he just bought off of eBay...any old record player will do...around 100 bucks.

    Myself...I still DJ using vinyl. I used to use a couple of Technics 1200s but I've moved onto a pair of Numark TTXs. Vinyl still sounds better to me than cd.

    Well, I'm not one of those people. I've liked The Beatles since I was 10. I couldn't have cared less about being hip at that age. And rock music probably wouldn't have survived if The Beatles hadn't become popular. And anyone who thinks they are a pop band needs to listen to the vast majority of thier stuff recorded after 1966. Not exactly what I would call pop fluff. I'd say the same about Rubber Soul (recorded before 1966 I believe).

    How do the Numarks compare to Technics, do you still have the sense of control you get with Technics?

    So I sold the Elvis Costello and Steely Dan records. Most recently I bought a blues complilation from the '70s. It has Sonny Boy Williamson, John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf and others on it.

    Most of my records are either rare 60's garage bands and 70's/80's punk.

    My favorite band of all time has been the Cramps (a fan since 1983 :word: ).

    I'd like to think I have an ecclectic record collection.

    :yay:

    My mom handed most of hers (except her Dead albums) down to me. Which means I have all the Beatles and Stones albums from the 60s and 70s, all the Zeppelin's, the first Van Halen, Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd and Street Survivors, among others.

    which 60's garage stuff? i'm missing a lot of my vinyl from when i was younger- most of mine is rebuilt from '93 on.
    eclectic is the word most often used when people are over and the browse through my collection.
