Are there certain ways to keep your vinyl clean that I should know about? I do want to play it, and not just keep it boxed up, but I want to make sure that I keep it in good condition.

Not sure, but I want to know, because I bought a Tom Petty special edition vinyl, that I will sell in years, but I do want to listen to it. Any ideas?

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

The other day I had a discussion with someone who claimed that the original Beatles records from the 1960s will lose their value in a few years because the younger generations want music that is not as old.

Pshhh. I've developed a theory about those kinds of people. They:

1. Are stupid

2. Are ignorant

3. Just want to irritate Beatles fans

(I originally developed this theory after someone was pushing the "'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' = LSD" thing on me.) 

^^ Good theory. it so happens as one of my dads super-religious friends wants my dad to stop me from listening beatles because "they said they were bigger than Jesus and might hurt pru's mind"a-hard-days-night-paul-3

And I was like screw that, i'd do it anyway.

I hate it when people make up stupid reasons for disliking the Beatles. My least favorite is definitely "they were junkies and hippies and they were high when they wrote their songs." Seriously? Go listen to anything before Rubber Soul, and you probably will find about three drug references. ("She's a Woman," "Day Tripper," and probably something sly that I wouldn't pick up.) Even their later material was mostly drug-free. (I'm thinking basically everything after the White Album. Again, I'm probably too innocent or whatever to pick up on drug references. Apparently someone thought "Hey Jude" was about heroin because of the line "let her under your skin." Honestly.) 

Why can't they just say that the music isn't their thing? And even then, the Beatles covered such a wide range of genres that you'd probably have to hate music in general to not find a Beatles song you like. 

Besides, there isn't really anything anti-religious in Beatles material. That came in John's solo work. a-hard-days-night-george-10 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I'm not sure I understand your logic. If serious collectors want the old vinyl wouldn't the value go up?

It's all about condition anyway. Lately I've seen more and more illustrated discography books being published, with different variations from around the world. I presume a comprehensive collection containing pristine items from many different countries would be worth far more than the odd vinyl copy of Revolver etc. Some things, such as the fan club singles, will always be worth lots because there weren't many manufactured and people didn't look after them.

Maybe the baby boomers will be gone in a while, but the world population is rising = more Beatles fans a-hard-days-night-george-10

The guy I got Rubber Soul from collected it for the cover, not the music. a-hard-days-night-john-7

But it was in pretty good condition.

But I guess it's all like that. I mean, it IS the Beatles. 

Step on the gas and wipe that tear away.
