I used to have a nice collection of Pink Floyd vinyl that was destroyed in a flood.

Aw, what a shame :( If our house was flooded the first thing I'd go and get is my vinyl box.

@Mr. Kite Yeah. The records (at least the Beatles ones) are mostly for novelty, considering I already have all of the songs. My dad has like 500 records, most of which don't match with his 400 CDs, so I have a lot of music. Sucks I can't rip a record.

Really!!! Some players can record it to an audio file, but not mine! I have a pretty good microphone and I've been thinking about recording them with that.

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

My player is my dad's record player from the 70s. It can't do anything digital. I might go that route, but it would take forever.

And for things I'd save, it'd go my laptop (which has all my music on it, and since I'm not bothering with saving the CDs, this is important), then my bass. Then my Beatles records. I keep my iPod in my pocket anyway. Finally, my copy of the 2012 Draft special The Hockey News with lots of player autographs, and my signed copies of Pearls Blows Up and Into The Sky With Diamonds. Since I have to worry about carrying things (and this is a flood), this a) eliminates my Xbox, which is important, but not as much as my laptop, which has everything on it. and b) things that don't take water damage get left. If it was a fire, there'd be some other stuff I'd try to save too.

Mine's pretty new, it's a cassette/cd player/radio/phono and it's good, my only problem is that it can't rip, but nothing to complain about cuz I love it.

Mine can do cassette, records, and AM radio. That's about it. Oh, and the cassette player on it doesn't even work anymore.

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 believe it disappeared at the last couch-house I stayed at, in spring 1984. There were a ton of albums all mixed together.  I was lucky to get out with my first release Frank Sinatras and Tom Lehrer ("…and we're poisoning pigeons in the park…") – ok maybe you have to hear the whole thing to appreciate that one a-hard-days-night-george-10 and Robert Frost reading his poetry.  I probably forgot as many as were "lost".  Those were some rough times, lasted a few months is all though.  It was very worn, the poster was gone…would have been a nice heirloom thing but not of any value.  I think all the Beatles albums disappeared, but they were all very worn, and were only Sgt. Peppers on up.

Equipment to do this costs about $250 USD.  Or you can go to a professional and it is $20 USD or less per lp…at least here in the states.  I'm hoping to get a 78 of my dad playing piano at age 10 digitized when I get the money.

You know you really should get an external drive to back your laptop up on.  It's just too easy to get to the point that you have to do a system restore and lose everything.  They don't cost that much…$100 USD tops…but man they are worth it when the time comes.  Saved all my music and most of my pictures (hadn't backed up the pictures).  If you have an old computer around that has a decent sized hard drive you can make an external out of that, just buy a shell for 30 usd or so.

@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.

I have a parlophone Revolver en route to me right now, from someone in the UK, over ebay.  As I've mentioned, my son collects vinyl; this is his bday present.  Not as much fun as poking around old record shops though :(

So, using math, the professional outstrips the home equipment once you hit 13 LPs. I have much more than 13 LPs. Probably more likely to spring for the equipment, though I'm probably not even going to bother. Except for this one bootleg I have on vinyl, but not digital.

And thanks for the advice about the hard drive, I think I have an old computer no one uses anymore I could pull the hard drive out of.

This is good advice. I have a NAS unit (Netgear NV+) with three hard drives mirroring each other (RAID 1), so if one fails I've still got another backup. I also back everything up again onto a portable hard drive which I keep in my office (I bring it home to sync every few weeks), so if my house gets burgled or set alight I have an offsite backup. This website, my photos and music are far too valuable to risk losing.

I also keep nothing of value on my computer's internal drive, just the OS. I've had too many HDD failures and had to start again from scratch. Maybe I've been unlucky with hardware.

Anyway, a bit off topic but worth discussing I hope. Bringing it back on topic, I once read a Q&A with Steve Albini where he spoke about his love of vinyl, and the way you can still listen to analogue recordings made decades ago with basic equipment whereas digital formats come and go. 

I can't work out how to link directly to the post in question, but the Q&A is here, and the vinyl discussion can be found if you search for 11308417. The rest is worth a read too – he's an interesting guy.

I feel like all my vinyls have a story or something cool about them so I'll talk about one or two at a time… Later

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

A vintage record box I purchased just arrived. Now my once-mighty 12" vinyl collection fits in one box, while the remaining 7"s sit in the one mini-record box I kept. It's kind of sad, but mostly thrilling to have it all in one place.

Just got a copy of Double Fantasy in really good condition for a few dollars… I have refused to listen to it up to this point and I guess now's the time…

Now this is a bit off topic, but one of the guys at the record store gave me Wingspan, I'm about to watch it and wanted to know everyones opinion… Is it good?

I have Double Fantasy, I believe it's first edition (anyone know how to check?), bought new. I'm just gonna keep bragging.

I didn't know Wingspan was a movie too? Thought it was just the album. And by "gave", do you mean he gave it to you for free, or recommended it to buy? If it's the first one, lucky
