15th-Dec-2006 09:37 pm - Some great vinyls recently found ...
Like me, does your pulse race whenever you catch a glimpse of some old vinyl records? Like when you happen to be invited to someone's house for the first time, and on being shown around suddenly out comes the record collection (usually only a modest 50 to 100 items or so, but nevermind...) and you've just gotta take a closer look. Us collectors are a bunch of showoffs, so here's a few of my recent disc-overies (sorry, I just had to say that !)...Read more...Collapse )
27th-Jan-2006 04:19 pm - What was your greatest find ......?
I'm sure every collector can relate to this..........
You go past a thrift shop/second hand record store/garage sale/trash & treasure market (or wherever your hounddog nose sniffs out the smell of vinyl) - nothing better to do with your time, so why not kill 30 minutes or so and take a look....

There's a small pile of vinyl records jammed between a few books and at first look they're the same old junk you always see (granny's castoffs, Mario Lanza sings about drunken princes etc.). You're just about to put them down with disgust when suddenly a familiar record label / cover catches your eye - your first thought is, it's going to be interesting to me, but probably not the one I've been searching for since forever - but your blood suddenly races when you realise what you're holding is worth all the tea in China to you - don't get your hopes up too soon, though - you'll look at the condition next and find it looks like it's been laser etched (but not with a laser, more like a razor) ....

You hold your breath and take a careful look at the condition - absolute mint!!!!

Drinks all round! You feel like you've just fallen in love again (if only for an hour or two).

Does the above ramblings remind you of some earth shattering find?
Tell me all about it, true collectors love to brag.....
