Nice JayJamJah! I have a few boxes stored away with albums I have inherited from numerous people. I think I am the only person among my friends and family who still owns a turntable. I admit I haven't listened to them lately but my collection includes music from the likes of Dean Martin and Elvis to disco and metal bands. I purchased the metal albums when I was younger but the other stuff was given to me. I think alot of them have scratches though. I haven't really thought about my records in a while, perhaps I should dust off my old stereo and give them a listen. Props on Dr. Hook. I love Dr. Hook. I even have them on 8 track!

I'm not a collector myself but some of my friends are. Maybe when I'm not so broke. Anyway, I heard some Black Keys on vinyl and it sounds great.

I have about 500-600 records, all 12" maxi singles of 80s new wave/synthpop/rock/goth and a tiny bit of r&b & maybe a handful of 90's stuff(like 4 records). I only collect the maxi singles if i can help it, and of course, Mine are in VG/EX+++++ condition.

Here's some recent stuff I picked up:

Well, my dad has pretty much all of Bob Dylan's records up to the 80's.

I, myself picked up some records at this thing called "Fun Fair" at my school, for one ticket apiece (tickets are 25 cents). I got a Loverboy album, and a Stray Cats album. Too bad we don't have a record player.

I grew up with CDs (just at the tail end of vinyl and cassettes being the main form of music), but I have to admit record albums are always very alluring and tempting, mostly for the huge, beautiful album art. CDs seem a bit cheap by comparison, as physical artifacts.

But the idea of building a whole new music collection in vinyl is pretty daunting. If I became inordinately wealthy, I think buying music on vinyl would become a top priority.

Sorry, just thought I'd share my longings and fears and desires for the future.
