Anyone still have vinyl?

Hey, I was just wondering how many people here have a nice record collection? I have maybe 20 or so old rock albums, like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Rush, etc.
So, anyone else with me in the record boat?

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

Oh yeah, I got Boston, the Who, Van Halen, Creedence, Dio, Ozzy AC/DC, etc. Oh yeah, I love the vinyls and search to improve my collection as well.

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

I have quite a few old records; John Cougar, CCR, Willie Nelson, Skynyrd, the Grease soundtrack. My favorite isn't even music, George Carlin Seven Dirty Words- the best stand up act ever.

I have more for 8 Tracks

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

My wife and I have a growing vinyl collection, some old, some new. We have most of the albums by The Beatles; in addition, I have some Iron Butterfly, Donovan, Jim Croche, and both albums released by HP Lovecraft (The band, not the writer ). As far as newer albums go, I have a bunch by the Mountain Goats, and some by The Mars Volta, They Might Be Giants, The White Stripes and Johnny Cash.

Since I'm living in the digital age, I have a lot of music on my computer. As such, I avoid buying CDs. However, in order to support the bands I enjoy, I typically buy their vinyl albums instead. I like the larger format of the artwork, and I also like the tactile sensation of putting a record on.

I used to be able to pick up old vinyls at my local Salvation Army thrift store (Which is how I managed to get a copy of Herman's Hermits "On Tour"), but recently they've cranked up the prices, which doesn't sit well with me.

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

I was a DJ in College oh so long ago and my wife played keyboard in a band. Between us we have about 6 milk crates of vinyl. My most precious ones are Beatles red and blue on red and blue vinyl, and a Billy Idol picture disc (Rebel Yell).

I have about 25-30 albums and just as many 45's, but my turntable took a dump some years back.

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

More than I want to think about, somewhere between 2 and 3 hundred 33 long plays, around 50 or so 45's. These are mostly 70's and 80's rock and metal. Then theirs the old stuff, about 200 more albums of blues, jazz and big bands collections some are 33 and other are 78's.

Yes I'm old.

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

This thread had me checking out my vinyl collection.
I'd forgotten I own the 4-record collection of Philip Glass and Robert Wilson's opera, Einstein On the Beach!

I first encountered Einstein on the Beach in college during a art history class. I had to get the music. Due to time constraints of the format, the vinyl presentation truncates the work by about 30 mins. Regardless, it's an amazing listen. Wish my turntable still worked.



The CD version features the full version, so I may need to purchase that someday, but the quality of the record - ! Will be missed.

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).

Re: Anyone still have vinyl?

I do still own and actively listen to vinyl. The last thing I bought NEW on vinyl [yes, they're still making it!] was Radiohead's In Rainbows, which sounds great on the ol' turntable. I also picked up a copy of The Velvet Underground's Live double LP on eBay for a sweet price. Anytime Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds put out a new single, I try to pick it up on 45 single.

My girlfriend is a HUGE vinyl maniac, and has every Beastie Boys album and single on vinyl, plus about 300 records. We often hit the thrift stores for strange old obscure records, and we've found some real gems.
