I still buy albums that have an historic value to me, that are not opened. But I don't buy to listen to.

I do. Mostly the gently used ones from ebay, but I'll buy reissues or newer releases now and then. You still can't beat fresh vinyl for sound quality, imo.

I thought I had a considerable collection till I met my wife.
She once worked in a used record store!
So we have a bit of vinyl between us.
We even have multiple turntables; but with the advent of small kids they were put on hiatus.
Still get the occasional LP, though. Especially anything in really good shape.
The tables will turn again someday-so we're holding on to the vinyl.

I like Vinyl a lot. Have a whole closet full of LP's, brand new ABB albums, Doors, Dead, all sorts of great vinyl. Love the sound of them over CD's, just the scratch in the beginning or something. Takes it to a new level, CD's just skip too much.

mainly yard sales - my biggest find was the Beatles White Album (cut out) complete with the poster and the lps were in great condition. I agree with abbrockin' - lps just sound better, 'warmer sound'....

I've heard some rave reviews of the vinyl released from Experience Hendrix.

Don't have a turntable anymore...but it does pique my interest to hear some of these....

Who would've thought vinyl would be this expensive to produce these days?

Beyond everything is more expensive to produce these days,

Here's some good reasons why:

The vinyl used is much heavier (180g/200g) than was used in the past.

The vinyl is virgin (by that, it's not re-used vinyl as in the old "vinyl" days).

More care is taken in the "mastering and cutting" process, which results in a higher "audiophile" type of sound quality.

and last but not least, limited distribution and availability, of many of these titles.

I moved abot 100 albums out to a freind and kept about 25 of my favorites. Then, a friend gave me an old milk carton with LP's she didin't want...some real classic stuff in nearly pristene condition, so yes I still play LP's.

LOL toovakynd!

Haven't purchased an LP for awhile but I love them - have hung on to my old one's and like to get them out to study cover art once in awhile. Haven't actually listened to them for about a year because a friend had my turntable and LP's and sort of threw the turntable on my front porch when it was returned so don't know what kind of condition the stylus is in or if I still have a working turntable. I've always thought that vinyl produced great sound.

Haven't bought any new records for awhile, but you know I play my records plenty -- in fact more often than tapes or CDs because I've had a record collection for so many years.
Finsky, the Experience Hendrix vinyl is very nice sounding (I have the first two albums) -- also the MFSL version of ELP's Tarkus -- 180g vinyl & something called the Pass System which they were touring heavily with their vinyl remasters -- a toke & the beginning of Tarkus at good volume = one happy camper

Great store here in Vic for used and new LP's (The Turntable). Just bought the new dylan on 200 gram and its a double LP only two songs per side. Awesome sound. Also have some Who on 200 and Dead. All great buys.

I rececently purchased Enlightened Rouges, 3rd Degree by Johnny Winter and a Hendrix LP from 1975 called Midnight Lightning for four bucks each. They all sound good. I stayed away from most of the Hendrix stuff that was released after his death but will buy them now if the price is right. My tuner and speakers are from 1973. I bought Poineer because Gregg did some ads for them. The turntable is an Optonica that is maybe 15 years old. I bought it used.

Fishhead,

Ain't nothing wrong with using vintage gear. Truth be told, in a lot of ways it's a lot more musical (i.e. better sounding) than some of the gear that gets sold nowadays that's more "analytical".

Speaking of reel to reel, I have a 1/4" reel with music on it but I don't know what it is, can anyone accomodate a 1/4'' reel?

The reel came to me from a friend who worked for the ticketing agent and she toured with Alice Cooper, Uriah Heep and Yes.
