I am showing my age here, not to mention exposing a compulsive behavior, but what vinyl do you have in stow'age that you absolutely cannot part with? Your fisrt LP bought with your own money(Santana/Abraxas{still one the greatest pieces of music ever produced},Sly&FS greatest hits)? That rare cover( Mom's Apple Pie with&w/o bricks; Skynyrd/Flames)? A really old label(Sinatra or Hendrix on pink&green showboat reprise, & two tone brown), white promo's? The obscure artist that made some of your friends go "huh?"(May Blitz; Sandy Bull; Rabbitt, Tetsu, Simon & Kirk)? The priceless sentimental, our Pop's on piano cut in wax circa 195??
Where did all the vinyl go?

Storage?

I have Mule on Vinyl and play it alot.

Got the Filmore East on 200 gram audiophile vinyl.

Just orderd the Hendrix Woodstoock 35th Anniversary 200 gram Vinyl.
And the Humble Pie Rockin at the Filmore 200 gram edition.

I raid second hand vinyl shops several times a year. Found
A+ condition copy of "Brothers and Sisters" for a buck.

Not so rare at my house.

But definitely a gem.

My first Vinyl was the Beatles "Hello Goodbye"/"I am the Walrus" on a 45rpm single
My First LP was Creedence Clearwater Revival "Cosmo's Factory"


analog captures all the love, digital only samples it.

Peace
John

anything can be fixed given enough time and money.

I got my dad's old turntable running at christmas time so I could
play Mahalia Jackson records on Christmas Eve. His just
needed a good cleaning and a new needle. he had spare needles and
I cleaned it. We had great music for Christmas eve.

So It depends on what is wrong with yours,

You can't hook a turntable up to a computer unless you have a preamp.
Or the turntable has a built in pre-amp or a digital output.

In most cases the answer is no.

Peace
John

I have an old, OLD Les Paul album that was given to me by a friends mother some years back. The record belonged to her husband. The record is about the size of what was called (in the 80's) an EP. What makes the record most interesting is that it was one of the first recordings to feature overdubbing. The cover features a photo of a very young Les Paul with 8 arms (airbrushed in ). The text asks, "how can one man play 8 guitars at the same time? It's a secret that we will never divulge ...". I don't know its value, but I'll never part with it.

I've still got most of the original Beatles releases, too (a couple on Vee-Jay records). I have a WHITE "White Album " (actual title" The Beatles), 2 original copies of "Sgt. Peppers ..." (graphics, posters etc. in tact). Somewhere I have the Duane and Gregg album (black and white head shots on the cover). I've got three of the first Johnny Cash albums (pristine condition), too.

Garage sales are a great place to find old turntables either in perfect working condition or sometimes just for parts like the needles. Albums can also be a great find at those. Offer a flat rate for the whole crate and people usually jump to get rid of them.

I have some decent vinyl.
I'm a bit voyeuristic.
I like reading/hearing old stories.
His/herstories.

I am replacing vinyl with CD's, but some particular old albums I can't part with, because of memories or the graphics. The one thing CD's suck for is the small little pictures. I want to do a framed large display of favorite old album covers someday.

Aoxomoxoa is my favorite hippie art cover.

Neil Young After The Gold Rush has too many memories to pitch, even with t on CD

"The Grateful Dead" (Skeleton cover live 1971) has both too many memories and very cool art.

Fillmore East.... no explanation needed, who could throw that out, even when replaced on CD?

Eat A Peach, same as Fillmore, memories, memories.

And then there are ones I have never replaced on CD, don't know if all are even available..... very old Joe Walsh, the first few Bonnie Raitts, the first few Jimmy Buffets when he was still creative, and many more. I would kill for the stolen in 1975 records I lost.... mostly would love all my old Quicksilver albums back.....

I need to get a needle, it has been a few years since last one dissappeared when "someone" was dusting..... what I found last time I bought one was that high end stereo stores sell them, but these days it is easier to find a whole cartridge rather than just a needle. Radio Shack can order them, but trying to discuss that with the yahoo clerks who only want to sell cell phones is like discussing nuclear physics with my dog.... I have a good turntable, an old Hitachi with the strobe thingie, to me single play manuals are the best. When my kids were little, I couldn't keep needles on them, they kept lifting the tonearm to turn it on and watch the strobe, then they would let go of it and break the tip off the needle, I would go to play a record and it would just skim over the entire record scratching it, and I would be jumping up and down, I was a fanatic about cleaning and only touching edges, all that stuff....

BTW, how many of the new recievers have a phono input? Is that obsolete yet?

When I sold my three crates to a dude like CanadianMule (who offered a flat rate on the whole lot at a garage sale) I only kept the stuff I wasn't so sure I would be able to get on CD anytime soon.

Some were a 12" extended version of Maiden's Aces High (with a live Number of the Beast and something else on the back), The Greatest Hits of Focus, George Thorogood's "Better than the Rest," a collection of unreleased tracks pre-dating his first album, later released on CD as Nadine, Wakeman's Journey to the Center of the Earth, which I later gave to a good Brother here who copied it onto CD for me, and a whole bunch of Floyd Bootlegs, a few of which I still have. I'll never part with "A Great Set."

I've got a pretty big vinyl collection if 100 or so is pretty big. The first one I ever bought was the 1985 Bears Doing the Super Bowl Shuffle. Vinyl was really before my time, but many of my records are originals that my dad gave me. Mostly Who and Zep. The rest I collected from music stores in several states.

I like 'em all, especially the Grateful Dead albums. Records can make for cool wall art in the right situation. Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" is probably my favorite because I can remember being about 7 and jamming to it with my dad.
