I have a huge pile of LP's in a cupboard :) They make me smile when I look at them, some are scratched from being played at parties, but it all adds to the memories :)
Keep an open mind, but don't let your brains fall out.

I made a return to vinyl a couple of years ago now after buying my partner a cheap deck. Quite addictive and now we are running out of space. While there are certain artists I look out for I enjoy the surprise of finding an album/artist I've never heard of and enjoy. Obviously on the other hand you can buy something with interesting artwork and put it on and think What the blithering heck!

Got a load of first copy Zeppelin, Genesis, VanDerGraff Generator, SteeyleyeSpan, Yes etc. Flog 'em or keep 'em?


Keep them - it's the first gen copies that everyone wants. Having said that, if you ever want to get rid, then give me a shout first! :)

Amazing track & album. Always been a fan of Slowdive. My local town, Reading had quite an indie scene going back in the 80's.
Slowdive are an English rock band that formed in Reading, Berkshire in 1989

I lost a huge vinyl collection some years back - they were stored in the attic (out of the kids way), and we had a flood caused by a burst pipe. They were all ruined, and had to be thrown away. Insurance paid out, but I decided maybe it was time to move on, so most of them were replaced by CDs.
Surprisingly, some early CDs are getting very expensive to source. I'm a big fan of 'Green on Red', but their early albums on CD are very rare.
One brilliant album I'd recommend on vinyl is The Hindu Love Gods one and only album. Three quarters of REM, with Warren Zevon doing the vocal duties, on an album full of classic blues covers. Amazing.

I like REM and this sounds like quite an interesting departure from their usual. Gutted that you lost all your vinyl, that's awful!

Have around 30 Jazz albums ranging from Art Peppers, Count Basie, John Coltrane and Coleman Hawkins that need a good home. All are in perfect condition, my father-in-laws collection. I keep meaning sit back and enjoy them but I'm more a Grateful Dead, Santana and Jefferson Airplane person. Any interest? Rob 8)

I'd take them off your hands but cash is tight as the van probably needs some money spent. :cry:

I didn't ask for money I'd just rather they were enjoyed. However if you want you can donate a little to the club funds. Rob

Going to have to ask, how much did you pay for them?
Are we going on anything else?
