I'm really getting into vinyl, and have been finding a lot of great stuff lately, so I'm starting this topic to share my finds with you, the people of the BB, and to give anyone else interested a place to talk about vinyl!

When I have more time later I'll talk about my collection...

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

I've got Sgt. Pepper on vinyl and a clear-colored "This Boy" 45 on vinyl which I will get framed and hang on my office wall one day when I'm motivated enough. I keep digging antique stores and vinyl record shops (there's two really good ones within relative driving distance) in the hopes I'll come across something really exciting (like a vinyl U.S. album), but so far no luck.

Haha! I have a bunch of US Albums on vinyl because of my dad. I have Beatles '65 and Hey Jude, as well as the US versions of Rubber Soul and Revolver plus the US editions (same as Britain) of Sgt. Pepper's, The BeatlesLet It Be, and Abbey Road.  Also the Red and Blue Albums and Rock And Roll Music

@WETSRoosa I've been really lucky lately. A record shop just opened up near my house and they have great stuff in great condition and the regular vinyls are just $2. The first time I went in I found a Sgt. Pepper picture disc and a real mono copy of Introducing the Beatles on Vee-Jay which is apparently one of the most conterfieted albums. They just bought an extremely large collection of pre-80's classic rock and I picked up some Beatles solo stuff I'll talk more about later (I should just do it now but I have other things I should be doing...)

And something really exciting, they're having a raffle for Record Store day and the prize: A butcher cover Yesterday and Today! Which I'm entered for so many times already that I have a good chance of winning! Wish me luck…

If you keep digging you're bound to find something good!

That's cool, first editions? Numbered White Album?

So lucky. I love clear/differently-colored vinyl. Even though I got rid of most of my collection with this latest decluttering, I kept all of my colored vinyl. I once saw this in the 90s, and it was $100 at the time. I was so tempted, but buying it literally would have meant not paying rent.

Rent was probably the right decision... But that's pretty cool

I had a numbered copy of the White Album (8xx,xxx), but it was well worn, and disappeared one time when I was homeless and sleeping from couch to couch.  I just bought my son, a beatles fan and vinyl collector, Revolver on the Parlophone label.  Not having much luck finding the info, was wondering if anyone knows if this is the British or American release?  Thanks!

@Matt Busby That's a UK release... US would be on Capitol

Thank you!  I'm thinking that's a "better" collectible than the US version, at least over here in the states.  Would I be right in that regard?  I'd just like to tell him the approximate value so he'll take appropriate care of it (which of course is, the standard "good" material cover and sleeve if necessary, keeping it upright above the floor, doubt he could control the humidity, cool dark place if possible...) - the ad didn't say if it had the inside sleeve and I haven't gotten it yet.

I found that 45 at a yard sale years ago. The guy only wanted $3 for it, too. I was tempted to tell him how much it could be worth, considering he had never played it and it was in excellent condition, but didn't want to press my luck. I got that, an original first-release VHS copy of the first WrestleMania, and a garish '70s-style lamp, all of which now reside in my office to this very day.

I have very recently got into collecting records. On Saturday I spent a shed-load in a local record shop. I bought a copy of Venus and Mars (with the stickers and posters), an original 1988 Choba B CCCP (the Russian album), Pink Floyd's Meddle, Ticket To Ride single and 7 other Paul McCartney singles.

I already owned Beatles Greatest, Wings Greatest (both were my grandads) and Wings over America.

My dad also gave me his red and blue albums.

It probably is a better collectable... As shown here there are different variations so each one is probably worth a different amount, you can check it out once you receive it. When they re-released the vinyls in 2012 they tried to make it as accurate as they were for their original release, and they chose yellow Parlophone (pictured below), so I assume thats the most common, although I'm not sure.

One of the guys at my local record store put aside Wings Over America for me... love it! And I just got Wings Greatest a few days ago when they got the new collection in and it still had the poster!

I feel like I saw Choba B CCCP, but I didn't get it so maybe not...

There's a record fair on near me at the beginning of April, so I'm hoping toe expand my collection a bit more. I own all the Beatles albums, so it's mostly other artist's I'm after.

@Matt Busby our White Album's must be quite close in number, I'm sure mine starts in eight. It's a shame you lost yours though, have you no idea where you left it? It'll probably turn up on ebay some day.

I just missed a record fair by me, but I believe there's another's one in the summer. 

I haven't been able to find a first pressing White Album, besides online, and I love the White Album so I've been looking for that... and I haven't found any UK Beatles albums yet...

@Mr. Kite 

I got mine online, too. It's in fairly good condition, though. The cover is a bit battered but the sound is great. I think I've played it once or twice, and that's it. I want to keep it that way for as long as possible.

I'm surprised you haven't found any UK albums (actually, are you in the UK?). If you're not then that could be why, I suppose. I come across loads over here.

@fabfouremily I still don't have a White Album because I'm hoping to find it in person, the only vinyls ive bought online are the 2012 reissues of Revolver and Abbey Road

And I'm in the US, so thats why... But I've found odd ones, a really good quality Japanese pressing of AHDN on Apple, and a Brazilian, I believe, Let It Be. Sadly no UK!
