It's actually my favourite album of his, despite that silly jazz song. Could trade it if you wanted? The sleeve's a bit worn (or VG in vinyl rip off terms) but the vinyl plays pretty smoothly.

It's OK man, at the moment I don't have my record player set-up so I've put off buying anything for now as any records I get just sit gathering dust rather than being played. Cheers though.

Folks, I'm finally on the vinyl train. The girlfriend got me a player for my birthday. It seems like an expensive habitat but luckily my parents never threw out the collection the had. I couldn't believe it the other day when I went to pick up there collection and all the old beatles, stones, dylan, floyd etc...


I feel like I'm cheating on last.fm though :(

Anybody got any good sites for ordering online? I'm assuming amazon / ebay etc? I have store here that sells vinyls but it's a bit limited in what it sells (although I did see the Pains new album and Smiths Queen Is Dead)

I'm taking up vinyl collecting too!

I need some catalyst to get me back into music which I have really stepped away from in the last couple of years, we stepped away from searching for new stuff.

I'm going to sell my CD collections which I haven't used in years, I have most or everything ripped/downloaded anyway so I've decided i'm going to collect vinyl.

I'm not going to go mad and just buy everything, but i'm going to try and collect the albums that I really love and and mix it in with stuff from current bands that I see or really like.

Picked up After the Gold Rush, Sign O The Times and a Ltd edition white vinyl version of the Phil Spector Christmas album the other day.

Nice one Kev. The way you are going about it is pretty much how I've done it. My favourites old & new. I do pick up second hand stuff at charity shops/boot-sales if it is dirt cheap though I really don't want to be one of those pricks with a whole room full of nothing but records that I'll never play. I usually buy half a dozen of my favourite records at the end of each year too though I wish everything wasn't so fucking expensive.

Yeah, I can't imagine being able to get hardly anything for the majority of my collection now. I think I'm going to hang on, I've a feeling in 15-20 years they'll once again have some kind of value. I'd rather let them rot then give them away for next to nothing.

And to think I spent £20 on the Japanese Don't Go Away single :(

I wanted to get a vinyl collection but I hardly ever play vinyl. I still use CDs in my car and that's it. So I'm slowly falling in the not-paying-for-music area.

I have a decent collection nowadays but hardly ever play them tbh. On the go is so much easier, and as enjoyable. Listening to a song in a certain situation, on a train, gazing out the window, is fulfillment, and is something a vinyl can't simply offer.

However, saying all that, vinyls do have their unique moment. Getting friends round for beers and spinning some records and actually listening and discussing the tracks and gandering over the artwork is a beautiful scenario. It's just it doesn't happen often enough for me to really commit to spending shit loads on them. I introduced somebody close to Ryan Adams recently and that came through the power of vinyl and sitting on a sofa. That can't work on a bus with an earphone each, definitely not.

What I'm saying is, if I really enjoyed staying in more than going out, I'd commit to vinyl. You just need music with you at all times because you'll always get that sudden urge, and that's the joy of music.

I wouldn't call myself a collector but the only records I buy nowadays are vinyl. Just yesterday I bought The Dø's latest, after seeing them life. But I listen mostly on Spotify.

got a new turntable for christmas along with some of my favourite albums of 2014 on vinyl.

looking forward to rediscovering vinyl collecting again over the coming year as i stopped when my old turntable broke. nothing better than finding an old 7" by the fall in a charity shop for 25p.

Today I've bought two CDs for the first time in ages: Ariel Pink's pom pom and a deluxe edition of Some Cities by Doves that for some reason was in store and quite cheap. Also unrelated, wanted to get a polo in the Pretty Green sale but was late and can't get one of my size anymore :(

Haven't got a turntable yet, probably gonna wait till I move house so I can set one up tidy.

Usually pick up stuff from car boots, had some good deals, whether they work or not is another thing :D

Got a few new ones (Beady Eye singles, Oasis, NGHFB etc etc..) but mostly stuff from car boots

I picked up The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead and I got Death Cab For Cutie - Transatlanticism for xmas.

Feels great going down to the shop and browing the vinyls. I'm a bit gutted though I seen both Cloud Nothings vinyls at my local shop before xmas but somebody must have snagged em up before I had the chance to go back.

Its such annoying shit, it's probably too late to stop now. Got myself a more decentish record player a while ago, that has slightly improved how much i play records, though its mostly the same 5 albums all the time anyway. Ive two full segments of stuff ive never played. It's so bad. Yet you keep collecting.

Ordered this a while ago famousclass.com/product/ty-segall-mr-face-ep/ ---- prime example of something youll never ever play

anyway,

some other recent stuff:

connections - 5 imaginary boys
morgan delt - s/t & psychic death hole; the latter is on cassette (will NEVER play)
paul weller - wild wood
dead skeletons - ord (beautiful release that is tbh)
stevenson ranch davidians album on cd - classic
and some h. hawkline EPs

It might be an idea as well to post pre-order info in this thread
