collecting records is an expensive hobby especially when mp3s are free.


but i have a bunch of em- i didnt realize early on that it would be cheaper to get the more expensive turntables that can read cds and let u scratch cds with the fake-platter vinyl then it was to buy direct drive turntables but then have to buy all the music u want to play on them individually as vinyls.

What is the big deal these days with records? I can understand that if you are doing the rap thing you need to have the ability to do the scratch sound thing, but we gave up records for cassettes. Then we gave those up for CDs. Why? Because they were better.

Better because they were smaller, easier to maintain and lasted longer.

With records, you wouldn't want to take them to a friends to play, unless you knew they had a new needle, because an old/bad one would tear up your records. You also would not let your friends bring over their old records, if you had the new stylus, because you didn't want to tear up your needle.

You can't leave them in your car 'cause they would warp in the heat.

Sound quality.....the first time I heard Pink Floyd's, 'Dark Side of the Moon', I heard things I had never heard before (that could've been the headphones though).

Now the album art is something that was always sorely missed.

If you tell me you collect them for the sake of collecting, I can understand that (I have 2000 comic books that noone can touch without a 2 hour lecture in advance)

So educate me guys......what's the big deal with records?


personally i think the quality of vinyls often sucks compared to mp3s so i feel ya there.

i mean some people think its better because its analogue but for my ear what vinyls normally mean is static and pops-

the main reason i have em is to do scratching and djing (beatmatching and fading and mixing etc)...

because unless u have those cd turntables i was talking about (and i know some ppl who do they work really really well) then u have no other choice but to use vinyls.

Bought the Fugazi vinyl for myself, girl was kind enough to buy me the Crosby Nash Live one. She also was real real sweet and surprised me with two books on vinyl, one being the 33 1/3 book on XO that I've wanted for forever and ever and never bought and the other that I saw somewhere and was interested in. I'm pumped to read them. I'll probably geek it out too and toss on the XO vinyl while I read the first.

Got 3 more today...

Radiohead - OK Computer
Tool - Lateralus(Ltd. Picture Disc)
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Second Helping

and IWABO - It's All Happening finally came in the mail yesterday.



I have a really hard time choosing what to get. Records are so damn expensive compared to my 10,000+ song digital collection which I have never paid a cent for.

The trick is buying used records

I spent like 100 at a used record store a couple weeks ago and came out with like 2 crates full of records.

But worth every penny.

Nice pick ups bears.

Was in a record store a while back, saw it and I think it was near 40 dollars if I remember correctly? Shits insane. Like I said only paid 25 for mine forever ago, its ridiculous how drastically that shit can change.
It ended up coming to $31 +tax. It hurt me a little to drop that much.
Radiohead was $24 +tax.

Word that's what I mostly have... Second Helping was 3 bucks. Only problem is most of the used records at the 3 stores around my house are shitty singles by shitty rappers. And the ones that aren't, usually are either music I don't like or in such bad condition that it wouldn't be worth my money.

"oh mickey you so fine! you so fine you blow my mind! hey mickey!..... hey mickey!" hahah

I just got a basket full of old 78s... like mad old waltzes from the 50s.

Looking forward to going through it. They've got not cases unfortunately. They're in pretty good condition though.

Last three I finally grabbed up after waiting forever. Was a damn fine show except for Toki Wright. Even Evidence was good. I also sorta insulted dude's DJ when he tried to sell me his crap and then I didn't feel bad once I saw him awkwardly waving his arms.

Digital distortion, ughh... on monitors/decent cans... mp3's sound awful, always... even the best quality ones sound tinny compared to vinyl imo... which goes for cd's aswell, I love CDJ's but would never swap my technics for em... pops and hiss on old records is annoying, but still sounds richer I think.

I personally buy vinyl as I am a dj and record collector... its a hobby/lifestyle... saying we ditched vinyl for cassettes to me is like telling a comic collector that Watchmen is available and more advanced on bluray, so the comic is now irrelevant.

I used to have a pretty good sized record collection, I sold most of them to pay off debts though. My record collection now is much, much smaller.

My favorite record that I still have is Eat A Peach from the Allman Brothers that my mom's ex-husband gave to me. I also give one Sunn O))) record that I can't remember the name of at the moment a good amount of plays... I'm a fan of Drone shit when I'm high. I also have a few random older Electronic records my former History teacher gave me that I'm a fan of.
