Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

I still have some vinyl but nothing to play it on. Everything in the vinyl collection was long ago converted to it's digital cousin.

Do you mean that you bought it on CD, or actually converted your LPs?

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

Nice to see a fair amount of people are still listening to records! I just picked up Empty Glass the other day, like it a lot! What is the deal with red and blue records, are they just promo things? Do most records have colored versions?

Sometimes, a band will release a 'limited edition' on colored vinyl [my lady has ALL of the LE Beastie Boys records on colored vinyl, as well as the regular black vinyl versions]. Sometimes the colored vinyl is the only version available. I have noticed the colored vinyl used frequently on 45s too.

Yes I'm old.
78's! That must have been what my parents had .... I forgot the speed but that sound right. Those things were like 1/4" thick! I think the diameter was larger than a 45 but smaller than LP/33. I forgot about those they were obsolete by the time I was born (1957).
My wife has a tons of old 78's that were her dad's. They are thick and heavy. She's got hundreds of them from the 30's and 40's + of big band era. Tons of Glenn Miller and Gene Krupa especially (her father is burried in the same cemetary as Gene Krupa at Holy Cross Cemetary in Calumet City, IL). There are many other artists/bands as well, you name it and we've probably got it. It's pretty cool, but we need a turntable to play them on.

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

I have a LOT. John Lennon's Double Fantasy still in plastic with the price tag, baby.

Pretty much everything John Cougar/Mellencamp. Almost all the Eagles. The Creatures and Peter Murphy, too, which I am so proud of.

And sooo many 78s. Boxes.

I have a new record player too--hard to find, but coming back now. I love vinyl--it sounds more real.

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

that's funny this thread was surfaced. I recently aquired a 50's juke box and currently on the prowl for 45's to stock it with. I had a bunch of 45's and can't find them yet. Most of my records 33's are beatles albums, with bunch of 80's stuff.

If anyone has some 45's in these catagories, i'd be interested in trades or purchase

The cars- open to most
Scorpions- open to most
The drifters- there goes my baby and/or save the last dance for me
The flamingos- I only have eyes for you
Ted Nugent-fred bear and/or stranglehold (paying well if you have both on one record)
Sam Cooke- open to most
Queenryche- anything from Empire
Queen- open to most
Rolling stones- open

Also open to most rock from 50's to 2000ish.

all 45's have to have the big hole.


I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

I have a KoRn Here to Stay era single on bright neon green transparent vinyl. It's nice.

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

See I don't think they sound any more "real". They just didn't overproduce music in studio's back then and thus the sound was more "authentic".

Take some crappy Spears song and put it on vinyl and it will still sound fake.

Now through May 28th, the Louisville region is in desperate need of platelets - call the Red Cross if you are interested in donating!
