Picked up this week : - 

Eagles - s/t ... Orig. white Asylum label, like I used to have when I first got into them, even though I have a later copy...going thru a bit of a nostalgia thing.

Eagles - On The Border - same reason as above!

 

Also since last post a few bits of vinyl I picked up...there's probably more but here's what I remember

The Firesign Theatre - The Tale of the Giant Rat of Sumatra (some Monty Python type stuff apparently - not got around to playing it yet) bought for the sleeve only and the princely sum of £2

Man - Christmas at the Patti - double 10" 

Gwendal - Some kind of French folk band

Chikkin - Which Came First (white Vinyl) - but I seem to have lost it without even playing it - it should be between Cheap Trick and Chilliwack!

Yes - Going for the One (nostalgia again!)

Family - Anyway - in the vinyl outer with the gatefold inner....again the nostalgia thing

Space Opera - s/t

Star Star - Go Go Girls in Love

I still can't believe that I bought on vinyl more new 2017 releases than cds!

I do not, and will not, buy new or reissued vinyl. I will, however, scour the old, used vinyl for old AOR and Rock gems. :)

This was cool before the hipster thing. Nowadays used $1-2 vinyls are selling for more than $10.And thus some of the enjoyment of finding cheap unknown music by visiting a record store  is gone. 

 

I always buy new vinyl  when available and my preferable option is the vinyl/cd combo ( Vinyl with cd which comes without jewel case/artwork)  which only few labels are offering for the moment (Century Media/Inside Music etc.). I asked FR many times to adopt this policy without success thus far.

 

I never buy reissues except if the first pressing was only available as  picture disc ( for example first W.E.T., DD-revolve, Winger - Karma etc) or demo tape/lp tape (if cases like these occur I hunt for both versions, if I'm missing  any).

I don't own a record player any more but want to get one because I have about 500 albums. Mostly metal, hard rock and punk. I live in a small town and there's still three record stores (as in mostly or all vinyl) within 15 minutes.

I know it sounds better but I cannot think of anything more annoying that going back to vinyl. 

I am 95% digital or streaming now.

I buy about 5 cds a year.

Absolutely agree. The storage and maintenance involved is ridiculous. It's all about the music man. I could not give a shit about the medium. I just want the tunes.
