I just organised to buy the White Album on vinyl tomorrow from a friend (that I barely know). I'm so elated!

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I'm glad to see that you're starting your collection with the best record.

The best album by The Beatles, yet it also contains their worst song.

I've been meaning to start a vinyl collection for a long time, and when I heard that he was selling it really cheaply and in very good condition... I had no choice!!

 Do you prefer vinyls or CDs?

 Personally, I prefer CDs, mainly because my record player is crap.  

I own the original UK mono records, but play the 2009 CDs as my go-to music.

I have "not heard" the 2014 mono LPs, but would love to, some day...... heart

This is my 2,000th post.

Anyways, i hope that you listen to The BEATLES in it's entirety as soon as you get it @The Hole Got Fixed it's an excellent album with such great songs as Dear Prudence , While My Guitar Gently Weeps , Birthday , and Helter Skelter .

If you want an optional challenge, you could go into the guitars used per song thread and write down what guitar (or guitars, depending on the song) you think each song used after listening to The Beatles 1968 self titled masterpiece.

I'm listening to it right now, @Dark Overlord. It's been in my possession for all of 5 minutes. And I'm on Dear Prudence

The Hole Got Very Happy!

Since you're currently on the song, do you hear an acoustic guitar in Dear Prudence .

I can hear a semi-acoustic, but I can't hear an acoustic. Though my turnstile's pretty awful, and is somewhat spoiling the experience. 

Now I want more vinyl!

Maybe instead of using his Epiphone Casino, John just plugged his Gibson acoustic into an amp for Dear Prudence like he did with She Loves You and I Feel Fine .

So pumped to have my stereo equipment set up. (1980's Yamaha system).
IMG_20180109_082757.jpgImage Enlarger


I had been using it for years at my dad's house, so I didn't have it when I moved. But my brother. (who actually owns it) gave it to me as a birthday present. (Along with two loud-as-hell 1986 Yamaha NS 200ma speakers.)

The speakers are set up on two shelves that are linear to each other and offer one helluva listening experience.

Awesomesauce, Evangeline! john-lennon-salute_gif

I think my (mildly ancient, not terribly high-end) turntable has seen better days... it growls like the bearings are worn out when it's running. I think my binge-listening to that delectably heavy 180-gram vinyl of Led Zeppelin III finally did it in a-hard-days-night-paul-10 ahdn_paul_01a-hard-days-night-george-10

I feel so lucky, my mom basically gave me her whole vinyl collection (Including every Pink Floyd album, except Dark Side Of The Moon, strangely enough) and her brand new turn table. a-hard-days-night-john-6

@Evangeline  Check out Hendrix's "House Burning Down" and crank it up!

I'll do that!
I've heard the song, but only through crappy headphones. It'll be cool to blast it.
