I don't know the number, the guy didn't know the number, I am guessing between three and five thousand records in a guys house today. He had a local sales rag ad.... "thousands of records, all genres, mostly classic rock"

well, to Mr Analog here, I flipped out reading that....

but it was kinda different....

first, they were in giant shelf things on three walls. They were staked in piles. They filled a closet. They filled a bedroom.

None were in any kind of order. Not by artist. One Rolling Stones might be a thousand records away from the next. I started to look through. It was insane. I would have needed a staff of five people and two weeks to a month to figure out what he had. There was great stuff, oddball stuff, who cares stuff, from raggedy to not bad shape, a real mix. Lord knows what he had. I doubt he knows beyond a vague guess.... when asked on specific albums, it always was, yeah I have it somewhere....

I sat and talked old music with him for an hour, knowing this was too much for me, I would have had to spent hours to even get a wild @ss atmospeheric feel at best.

It actually would probably take months to sort it, myself. Before I left I asked him how he found stuff to play: "Oh, I just grab one, if that doesn't work I grab another, it's fun that way".... I imagine a particular album surfaces once every ten or twenty years,

They weren't in the most desirable of shape overall, medium grade appearance, otherwise I might have tried to figure out a way to lot buy the whole mess.

It was a case,I believe, of "hoarding cumpulsive accumulation" thing, it was whacky! wow!

i would love to see ideas on how to display old vinyl..

to me, lovely old lps, with beautiful art work cover deserve individual attention for the world to see..

if u r hungry, sure, u can drive thru a greazy fast food joint, (mp3)

or given the luxury of time, u can roast a great steak with sauteed mushroom and onion and perhaps a delicate sauce of butter ,dijon and wine..(Vinyl)

if anyone has pix and /or idea of interesting display cases for vinyl, please share..

jfk2112, I wouldn't feel right steering anyone that way, not nice enough stock in general and it would take an eternity sorting to even know if you spent wisely. only way it makes sense is a nickel or dime each cost so you win no matter what. Montana is locale.

Peachy! Hey brother! OK, imagine your collection put in a giant Waring Blender that mixed it into absolute hysterical non order. Imagine looking for the old John Mayall album you like. All you know,, is in this sea of albums, you believe it is out there. start looking! the real fun is unless stored record store style, flip look at fronts, people tend to store sideways. you know tiny print on thin edges, and crane your neck sideways. That is what I faced just looking at that collection. packed tight and sideways, and no I mean no two albums in a row by same artist. the guy was neurotic off, I hate to say.

Montana is way too far. At least I can stop wondering now, since I'd never get there anyway. Thanks.
