I've got lots and lots of records, especially by folks like Hendrix and Miles Davis and Funkadelic and Black Sabbath and whoever else. And of course, lots of Beatles recordings and books and videos. But the only performer I think I really "collect" (as in, I'll buy ANYTHING with their name on it!) is MX-80 Sound, just because they're so arcane and obscure, and their music has meant so much to me. I can't say I prefer 'em to the Beatles or Zeppelin, but there's just something cool about owning their old flyers and posters and incredibly rare 1970s vinyl that most people don't know even exists.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

You've got the Ed Chalpin & Juggy Murray contracts?! That is unbelievable. Wow, just wow!

If I ever met Billy Joel, I'd ask him to sign my Attila CD! (It's great! :D )

I have never even heard of MX-80 Sound until this very moment.  I just checked them out.  

I tip my hat to you sir, for keeping the flame of indie punk alive, even years after its expiration date.  I think we all have our obscure loves.  It's good to know I'm not the only one.

My weakness is for the bands of the early 1990s from Halifax, Nova Scotia.  We were *supposed* to be the "Next Big Thing" after Seattle, but it burned out after about 2 years.  Still though...  Many awesome bands came out of there.  But at this point, even the Google searches run dry after a few pages.

E is for 'Ergent'.

I just got into vinyl collecting but beside 2 new Beatles albums I bought (Rubber Soul and Revolver) I also got original UK copy of Some Times in NY and Walls And Bridges (wait, that's Beatle related too...), oh and Led Zeppelin Physical Graffiti, also original UK, and Radiohead Ok Computer album.

Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.

Big ones for me would be:

  • Beastie Boys
  • The Doors
  • The Rolling Stones
  • Led Zeppelin
  • Jimi Hendrix
  • Radiohead
  • Chemical Brothers
  • Daft Punk

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"
