Default The Vinyl Thread

Chula's rant about vinyl got me thinking and while we've had a few threads over the years about this subject, we haven't had a fresh one in about four years. Since I went out to California I've discovered a newfound passion for collecting, buying, and selling vinyl records. I must have brought about 200 home and gathered about 150 since I've been home. Mostly I get them cheap as sh*t at garage sales, usually going for bulk buys. I've been either getting lucky or I'm just really good at it because I've made all my money back that I spent on all these records plus a little extra profit. I keep a lot too and have a really nice selection going right now.

Anyway, I know some of you collect so here's a thread dedicated to the hobby. It can also be a place to trade or sell records if you like. If any of you are interested, here' my discog page.

Hopefully some of you will be interested and this thread won't die in a day.

I've only got 7 LP's, since I only buy them for the cover. Recently, I've been thinking about getting a turntable since It's starting to become obvious that some albums are far harder to find on CD than on vinyl. Especially 60's and 70's albums that were never popular enough to get reprinted on CD after the first run. For example, I can easily buy a decently priced copy of Judie Tzuke's 'The Cat is Out' on vinyl online, but the CD's are very expensive.

I don't think anything I own is worth a damn or is anything special, but here are the few I own:

Kate Bush - Lionheart
Bryan Ferry - The Bride Stripped Bare
Carly Simon - Come Upstairs
Roxy Music - Siren
Joan Baez - Hits/Greatest & Others
Rickie Lee Jones - (self titled)
Cris Williamson - (self titled)

I KNOW you only got 7.

If you had a ton, it would make no difference.

Were you born a glistering turd sock or do you
just have the occasional mental stain detector day?

Way too much vinyl around here - in the tens of thousands -
much of which is slipping out the door more and more often,
but newer things always seem to take their place.

My old turntable broke down, so I sold most of my records. Now I have a new one and I'm slowly rebuilding my collection, but I'm next to broke, so I only buy albums I absolutely love. So far I have Aladdin Sane, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Sgt. Pepper's, and of course this one:
