Nice collection David. I have only gotten back into collecting vinyl again, in the past two months. I got about enuff vinyl to fill ONE of them shelves. I havent even thought about the future, if i was to reach the same amount of vinyl as you. Id need shelves like you have there, but i really dont know where the hell id put them. I mean...im in a 3 bedroomed house, by myself mainly....apart from when my kids come, but as things stand, i wouldnt have anywhere to put shelves. So mibees i best cool the jets with the vinyl buying.........fat chance :P

Anyone here a member of the Vinyl Community on youtube?

Thanks, David. Now I'm not going to be happy until I own that shelving unit, and the nearest Ikea is in Schaumburg. It would be about $250 to ship it here

Those Expedit units are OK, btu be sure to go to your local home depot and get some plywood to put on the back.

Also if you're in an earthquake zone you better attach to a stud or your collections are goign to be in pieces, the shelves are held in place with little dowel pins and they break easily, records are HEAVY.

I stick to the 2x2 units.

It's just funny the things you can find sometimes.

I'm terrified to take the Beatles album out of its shrink wrap. On the other hand, I want to examine every little bit of it.

Many years ago when I was moving I needed money and had to consolidate so I sadly took half my huge, lifetimes worth collection of vinyl around to used record stores in San Diego to try to sell. Out of hundreds of records, they only wanted TWO RECORDS. I was so bummed. I left the whole lot in the house I moved from for the new owner. Anyway, yeah, that was one of the only 2 records they wanted. It's a good record!

That's pretty awesome.

Bought a few of the Radiohead reissues lately, right now The Bends is kicking my ass.

I still can't believe it's mine, even thought it's on the shelf with the rest of the records. What my dork brain found cool is that it's still got the advert sleeve with the big (pre-Beatles) Capitol artists in it, and that hasn't been torn hardly at all. I'm kind of proud of my little collection now.

Pretty cool Reggo.

One of these days I should take a pic of my Beatles vinyls. Most of them were original purchases from the 60's when they were released. I was lucky that my parents who were big Beatles fans gave them to me.

4 of the Blur reissues: Leisure, The Great Escape, self titled, and 13. I forgot how great the self titled Blur album was.

My wife picked up the Antlers 45rpm ep, clear, green vinyl. Pretty good EP, the 4 songs are really good. I await their next full album.

I found some Duke Ellington lps and TACO's Puttin on the Ritz single at Goodwill this yesterday morning. Yes, Taco was a guilty pleasure purchase.

To anyone who buys the Blur reissue LPs they do come with a download code to download the standard album as well as the bonus material CD found on the CD deluxe versions AND scans of the old Blurbs fan newsletter. Pretty good deal when you think about it.

I've got a few of those, my mom beat the hell out of them (the actual cover to a hard day's night disappeared before I was even born, and it's been living with rubber soul for thirty or so years. don't worry. It's at least in a paper sleeve).

Yeah many of mine are battle weary too, but they are still cool to have.

I started about a week into July. After three weeks, I had 150 pieces of vinyl (about a dozen 7" and the rest 12"). Basically, was going through the two local record shops and making a lot of purchases from the dollar bins or records that were under $3. A surprising amount of great stuff (all but ten or so of the albums were already in my digital library). I also bought some newer titles though such as this year's LPs from DIIV and Cloud Nothings (10 bucks a pop), but buying newer records is kind of a strain since they average about $15 for the lowest price (about 50% of the time in-shop at a record store and 50% of the time on Amazon). There's about thirty albums this year that I dig so paying $450 would be crazy to have them all. Fun, but a little crazy.

Granted $15 for a cool vinyl is better than when I would occasionally get a CD at the mall for $20 during the 90's.
