Trading/selling regrets

I'm not a trader at all and I've long gotten over having the physical CD in my hands. There is however one big regret that I have. I used to own the set of 4 original KISS Solo vinyl LP picture discs. Fell on hard times back in '98ish and we parted ways.    😭

Like you, picture discs.
I always struggled with vinyl, scratches, how fragile they were etc.
So when CD's came along, I replaced all my records with CD's, at times selling off the records to subsidise the cost.
Some I kepy, that I couldn't get on CD - Little America, Gogmagog and The HEavy's Metal Marathon were a few.
But for some reason I sold off my picture discs, probably because even then they were worth considerably more than records that were becoming extinct.

I have the Trooper picture disc that was shaped odd for the flag etc (ie it wasn't round)
Remember I had Voctory by The Jacksons for some reason.
A whole bunch of stuff, which I wish I'd kept.

Pobably my most valuable record remaining is a signed copy of Kylie Minogue's I Should Be So Lucky. This was at the start of her singing career and I was at the Royal melbourne Show and they announced she was signing records and I was right there. Surprisingly, nobody else really bothered to go up to her, so I had a chat and moved on.
Still have a bunch of singles, kept mainly for their B Sides.

My biggest selling regret is that I didn't convert my entire collection to MP3 and sell the CDs when they were still worth half a cent. :(

Yep, me too.
I still have to rip all my CD's
Big job, that I'll likely never get to.

Every now and then I pull a CD and if I play it on my computer I'll rip it.
That said, I just upgraded my desktop and latop recently and neitehr have CD drives any more.

Probably should get on it while plug in writers are still available and cheap.

Sounds a lot like me. I have no idea how I'll ever get it done. And more to the point, how on earth I'll ever bother with the effort involved in selling them all if/when I get it done. 

And yeah, based on my album ratings, I'm making playlists of each year for my iPod and any device into the future. I've actually done 1979-1986 so far, which entails ripping all worthwhile albums from those years to my computer. Still thousands to go, but it's a start. 

And yep, my laptop also have no disc drive, so I need to rely on our old shitty snail-paced computers that'd otherwise be discarded, but I'm keeping them just to rip CDs, lol. The plug-in one for my Macbook proved very volatile and temperamental.

I moved my old computer to my warehouse when I upgraded, so that still has a CD drive.
But I didn't really think about it until now.

I'll likely sell off the CD's that are worth something - the rare ones.
The rest are really costers now I guess.

I do regret dumping all my vinyl before I moved cross country a few years ago....but I didn't want to take them with me and it was too much trouble to sell them 1 at a time so I literally gave them away to a vinyl store...250 albums for $500....dumped all my cassettes too at the same time for virtually nothing....over 500 for $300 to a cassette store.....heck it was enough hassle packing up and moving over 6000 cds! ...there is no way I'm going through the hassle of ripping my cds let alone selling my cds...I'll have them til death do us part lol...I listen to digital stuff in my car but I just download complete discographys of bands I like and put them on flash drives....

    • No, you need to show me where the pulse is. 
    • Yeah, it's a great album (Vanity Kills, 2010). Any new material on the horizon?   
    • Lyric video for 'Return To Glory'.    
    • New album out November 22 through Lions Pride Music. From Lions Pride Music: Martin Perticone AKA “Perticone Underdog” is an artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina who’s been in the music industry since the age of 13, when he joined the band Fondo Blues as a lead singer and guitar player. Martin played in the Argentinean under circuits for more than 25 years but during the way also got to know many important people in the music industry that led him to become Tour Manager for artists like Eric Martin from Mr Big in 2007 or even being invited as a guest for Richie Kotzen Latin American Tour in 2008. Martin has also toured around Latin America, USA, Europe and Hong Kong as a hired gun for many different artists until he finally decided to put more efforts on his solo career. That’s how his long-time friend Edu Giardina (well-known artist in Latin America) would become his producer and mentor for his debut album “Underdog”. The mixture of AOR, Southern Rock and Country makes this album unique and different with amazing and powerful melodies all over the place. The album featured guests such as Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Edu Giardina and brings reminiscent from the late 80’s and 90’s but keeping the best of current sounds and trends too. Perticone’s solo career has just begun and in only 1 year from his launch he’s got many followers and fans in Europe, Asia and Latin America. “Stuff In The Basement” was recorded during pandemic times at RED Studios Buenos Aires and features an amazing line-up of musicians from all over the world. Edu Giardina and Guillermo Porro got involved, one more time, as the producers and band members for this new release taking the album to another level. It is plain to see the growth of Perticone Underdog as an artist on this new production by just listening to the opening track of the album “Blame it on Me”. There are, as usual, some country “pearls” and 90’s rock reminiscences all over. Stuff in the Basement will be released in 29 August 2022 by Lions Pride Music worldwide!   CD Tracklist: 01. Blame It On Me 02. End Of The Line 03. Name Without A Face 04. Save Me Tonight 05. Game For Fools 06. Waiting 07. Let's Get Lost Tonight 08. What Went Wrong (I Wonder) 09. When It Rains 10. Falling   Perticone Underdog is: Martin Perticone: Lead & Backing Vocals, Acoustic & Rhythm Guitar Edu Giardina: Backing Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keys, Drums, Progamming Ezequias Aquino: Saxophone Guillermo Porro: Guitar Solo on „Name Without A Face“ Will Wilde: Harmonica on „Game Of Fools“ Emmanuel Lopez: Lead Guitar on „Let's Get Lost Tonight“ Lara Goi: Backing Vocals on „What Went Wrong“ Brad Harper: Pedal Steel Guitar on „When It Rains“   facebook

    • Don't mind that either tbh
