My wife and I don't have any kids, and my nieces and nephews don't seem interested, so you can go to the top of the list!  

I've got over 1000 LPs and another 100 or so 10" and 7" models, though, so maybe you can rent a U-Haul or borrow a van!  One thing for sure, they are heavy as all get-out.  The last time we moved, the moving crew moaned loud and often when they saw our records and our books...("you mean there's more???!!")

Zig posted 28 July 2011 in response to the debate on whether vinyl will depreciate over time or not
That is an interesting debate.

Will demand wane as the boomers do, or will it increase as new generations of Beatles fans are spawned?

I think it'll be like George's song

Friends come, and friends go, as I go round and round 
In Circles 

a-hard-days-night-george-10

Jesting aside, vinyl has seen a sort of renaissance in recent times (just look at our current little 'vinyl fan club'-- me, @Evangeline, @limitlessundyinglove, and @WeepingAtlasCedars-- we're none of us old farts), as a bit of a novelty item perhaps, but I don't think it'll ever die out. Considering there are ever more people in the world, the vinyl fans will probably proliferate. heart

Vinyl has had a huge resurgence over the last 5 years or so. It's not even as a novelty but folk are appreciating it for the [felt] warmth and depth in sound (missing in downloads and cds) and the bigger artwork - the artwork in cds is small and difficult to read at times, downloads you cannot hold. Plus there is a buzz in putting on vinyl and hearing the needle going round.

I was about to mention that-- art lovers will always appreciate the larger format. 

Plus there is a buzz in putting on vinyl and hearing the needle going round.  

There's nothing like it! It's highly addictive. 

In other words, ladies and gents, the jury is in-- vinyl will never completely go out of style.

I'm loving a lot of "gimmicky" things going on with this vinyl resurgence -- records that play from the inside out, "hidden" tracks cut into the labels, and especially the colors!

I have to admit that every time I pull a slab of white vinyl out of its sleeve, it looks so much like white chocolate that I want to take a bite out of it!

Picked up two albums today.

1. Gone Troppo by George Harrison - This means I have all of his studio albums on vinyl!ahdn_george_08Well, I don't have Wonderwall Music , Electronic Sound , or Brainwashed, but the first two don't matter that much, and Brainwashed isn't that easy to get.  Luckily, George's albums are easy to find and fairly cheap at record stores.

2. In The Court Of The Crimson King by King Crimson- This masterpiece isn't that easy to find, but I was lucky enough to find it for $12.  I was kinda scared because there's a couple good-sized marks on the record, but it actually sounds great!  Just a little crackly.  My friend is a HUGE King Crimson fan, so he's very jealous, but he already has 4 of their albums on vinyl anyway.a-hard-days-night-paul-11

I just noticed that we are the ones who talk about vinyl the most, but it's not an exclusive club. There are lots of vinyl enthusiasts in Forumpool who aren't quite as vocal as we are. 

From reading the above couple of posts, I'd say @BluemeanAl deserves a membership. a-hard-days-night-john-6

(I think this fits appropriately here.) 

  Someone asked me to bring one of my records over to try out their new turntable (he hasn't gotten his records yet). So I pick out like 3 records for the occasion, varying quality to see how the player handles poor(er) quality records.

  I hitch my way over there and I see his turntable...my first reaction was "What the freaking heck." It's one of those vertical players. (They look like vinyl killers)

 I ain't rigging up my near perfect White Album on the thing so I decided to hide that one away. Giving him Wings At The Speed Of Sound instead. 

  Good news, it plays fine. Still seems rather weird and far out, but as long as my albums didn't die on the thing I'm happy. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I remember buying a turntable because the sales guy tilted it almost vertical and the record didn't skip.  I was so impressed that I practically opened my wallet to him on the spot.  I'm not sure how many he sold that way, but he sold one to me!

Yeah, I probably wouldn't let my records touch that thing.a-hard-days-night-paul-11Even if they'd probably be just fine.  I'm just paranoid like that.

I've been curious about something lately, but I can't seem to get a straight answer out of the Internet.  I'm completely unsure about where the right place to put this is, as I know that it's not worthy of it's own thread.

I've been trying to think about what the earliest album is to not feature the artist and album name on the front cover.  I was thinking that maybe putting my head together with the people here might help me find an answer.  The earliest one I personally can think of is Bob Dylan's Blonde On Blonde (1966), but I kind of doubt that that's the first one.  Can anyone think of an earlier album that doesn't feature the album title and artist name on the cover?

Where's @vonbontee or @Von Bontee when you need him?  This seems like the sort of thing he'd be able to help me with.

Here I am 😀 ...I think the earliest I know of is BFS...what I'm wondering is either of that one or BOB had text on the spine though?

I was thinking (not always a bad thing) and looking through my record collection. And just flipping through them made me feel depressed.

As I discover more and more artists and start to want all their records. I realised I will never truly have every record I want. There will always be some that I'm missing.

I'll be wasting tons of money (I've spent 100$ on my Beatles records alone.) on a record collection that will never be complete.

The more I think about it, the sadder I get.
