Do you like to collect records?

Recommended Posts

If so, why don't you share information about your collection? Personally, I love collecting music. I own albums from The Who, Black Sabbath, The Byrds, David Bowie, Warpaint, The Move, The Velvet Underground, Genesis, Miles Davis, etc. I can't make a list of each one because it would be too long, but these are some examples. Now it's your turn.

I had a big collection of LPs and cassettes many years ago but I changed to CDs to reduce space and be more selective instead of buying everything (singles, EP, albums, etc) of every band.

I own mostly metal albums and I like collecting old CDs versions and new versions for bonus tracks and rare stuff.

 

These are some:

Wow. I'm not a big metal fan, but I also have records from Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Anthrax, Metallica and Megadeth. Also, I don't like to collect ALL of my favourite artists's output. Only the essentials (there are exceptions, of course, but these exceptions are the "minor but acceptable" records from said artists).

I own a small collection of Rolling Stones vinyls that I’m aiming to expand by the end of summer. I only have six records at the moment—Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, and Sticky Fingers (courtesy of my brother), as well as Their Satanic Majesties Request, Exile on Main St., and Some Girls (purchased myself)—but I’ll be going away to Pennsylvania next week (coincidentally to see the Stones in concert), so I’ll try to pick up four or five more from a record shop I frequent whenever I’m in Philly.

 

Here’s a post I made a few weeks ago that contains photos of the three records I bought. I can post better ones once I find the time to properly display the entire collection in my apartment.

I have a select few of my favourites on vinyl when available. I don't play them, but I enjoy having this massive example of album art to represent my taste and they're nice to own. I also collect 78RPM records from the 20s and 30s.

I have a ton at my parents' house in my old bedroom, saving it for when I get a bigger place. I have mostly just stuff I like, but I also have original pressings of every Beatles record and a lot of stones++ all that stuff, my dad having brought it over when he moved to here in the 80s. I also get some of my more obscure favorites on vinyl because they may some day become unavailable on streaming services - this was the case with early Pat Metheny/PMG material, which was not available online until recently, so I got it all on vinyl. I still use my turntable from time to time when I visit, because I really like the ritualistic nature of it. No skipping, and maybe a more attentive listening experience because of the comparative effort required...

I've been collecting music for years. Mostly CDs, though I'll occasionally get an album I really like on vinyl or whatever format I happen to find it on. I also have a modest collection on cassette, though they're mostly releases I haven't found on any other formats, like live recordings of contemporary bluegrass and some classical. I find CDs to be more economical, and they're much more ubiquitous. I've ripped almost all of my hundreds of CDs I've acquired over the years to flac, and the whole metadata/tagging aspect is really enjoyable for me, I don't know why. I've also contributed my fair share of album cover scans when I couldn't find any online. It's probably leftover from my time volunteering at a library! I do the same with many of the books I own, cataloguing them and putting them into an offline database that I have complete control over, sometimes scanning book covers as well.

 

Sometimes I'll buy an album again on another format/the same format. There can be variants in the track listing, an album cover variant, or the mixing - this is particularly noticeable with albums released and mixed in the earliest days of CDs, versus a modern re-release. I prefer to get older releases whenever possible as they won't be as squashed and compressed like a lot of "remasters" are mixed today with all of the dynamics stripped out of them.

I did the exact same thing, ditched my huge Vinyl and Cassette collection I collected ever since the 80's and started replacing them all on CD. I actually have 2 Iron Maiden CD's coming in the mail now that I miss dearly, Somewhere In Time and Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son. :cool:

Somewhere in Time is my favorite, I had 3 copies on CD and 1 on Vinyl.

 

I keep only one in the collection and this special for me because the brownish jewel case fits with the cover and down below says "Manufactured by EMI", I can't find information of this UK release on discogs or anywhere.

I do love finding the oddball copies that float around. I had 2 vinyl copies of Judas Priest's Screaming for Vengeance and the one had the normal insert sheet where they are wearing their leather outfits and the other one on the sheet they were wearing blouses and bell bottoms and all had long hair like they did in the 70's I never seen another copie like it. Since they both sported the song list and lyrics for the album I know it wasn't from another one.

Yes. I mostly collect punk/hardcore records, but I don't limit myself to those particular genres. I have maybe 120 LPs, and probably just over 100 45s/7''/singles/whatever. I'm not sure the exact count of either, but I have enough to the point that I can look through my collection and find things I had forgotten I had.

xXAAzPM.jpg

Some of my rarer/more expensive LPs/12 EPs. From left to right, Sacrilege - Behind the Realms of Madness LP (Pusmort pressing). Sheer Terror - Just Can't Hate Enough LP (Starving Missile /Blackout pressing). Fatal Rage - S/T LP (OG Motha Records pressing). SS Decontrol - Get It Away 12'' EP (OG X-Claim! Records pressing). Negative FX - S/T LP (OG Taang! Records pressing)

Some of my rarer 7'' EPs. L to R: The Neos - Hassibah Gets the Martian Brain Squeeze 7'' EP (Ratcage Records pressing). Poison Idea - Darby Crash Rides Again 7'' EP (blue marbeled, numbered 648/100, OG American Leather pressing). The Rotters - Sit On My Face Steve Nicks 7'' EP (OG Rotten Records pressing). Neanderthal - Fighting Music 7'' EP (OG Slap-A-Ham records pressing).

I have some other rares but I don't feel like digging. I'll probably post more later on.

^If we had a love button, I'd use it.

 

As for the question, I'd love to, but they're quite difficult to come across where I live.

You can always buy records online, which is a good way to find things you might otherwise never come across, but with shipping--especially international shipping--and in some places, sales tax, you can end up spending a lot more than you would at a shop, and a lot more than the record is actually worth. It can be an expensive hobby. I've easily spent thousands of dollars in the past few years. On the flip side, a lot of my records have already increased in value just in the past couple of years, so I could flip them for more money if I really wanted to.

 

That Fatal Rage LP was probably my best find, though. Found it in an antique store for $10. It's worth at least $250-$300. EDIT: Apparently one copy sold on Discogs for $700 lol
