Ah, I see. I used to have an old terribly scratched copy; if I still owned it, I'd mount it on my wall (like my "Revolver" cover!)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

Spanish I Feel Fine 45. According to the Joe's discography (which doesn't have the bottom of the sleeve shaved off).

So this is a system that I developed as part of a data system to record information on each album because we all wish to pander to our innermost OCD tendencies. Its not perfect by any means but it's one of the quickest to use. Please bear in mind this is vinyl oriented, you could stretch it to cds or tapes if you still use them. Or you could just skip that bit.

Obviously this is going to be opinion dominated, but roughly it should be the same all round.

1. Quality

This section focuses on the physical quality. There are a maximum of 3 stars to be obtained.

* - Poor sleeve, poor vinyl. (Large number of scratches, creases, tears and water/other damage on sleeve. Vinyl damage renders vinyl unplayable, or playable with great difficulty.)

** - Moderate sleeve, moderate vinyl^ (Some stains, tears or creases on sleeve, not too noticeable. A few scratches on the vinyl, still playable.)

^ - OR poor sleeve, moderate vinyl OR moderate vinyl, poor sleeve.

*** - Great sleeve, great vinyl^ (Everything's perfect.)

^ - OR Moderate sleeve, great vinyl or moderate vinyl, great sleeve.

There's the obvious one which I haven't mentioned (poor sleeve, great vinyl etc) which I haven't quite worked out yet, so I'll try and work that out.

 

2. Rating.

 

This is about the musical quality. This follows a point-to-star conversion system. (x pt) means add x point(s). (- xpt) means take away the point(s). Obviously only add if the question is "yes" and take away according to the percentage.

1. Did it have any cultural significance? (1 pt)

2. How many songs were ground breaking/high in skill? (ie composition/playing) (This really should be a percentage; just divide the number by how many songs are on the album and times by 100. 25% = 1 pt. 50% = 2pt. 75% = 3pt. 80%+ = 4pt.)

3. Is it easy to remember the songs? (1 pt)

4. How many songs were "fillers"? (ie sub par songs to pad out the album. Very, very bad songs.) (Again a percentage. This time take away points. 75%+ = - 4pt. 50% = -3pt. 25% = -2pt. 10% = -1pt. <10% = - o pt.)

Conversion - 

(Best album ever should be 6 points. Roughly.)

1-2 = Poor. *

3-4 = Good. **

5-6 = Fab. ***

Now you have it! This may be of no use to you at all but it is to me. Now you can just scribble the score somewhere on your massive data/statistic sheet.

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

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...

 

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

My parents gave away the ones they had before I could get to them. Such is life in the funny pages...

@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!

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

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
