My vinyl record collection list

I don't know why i've only just thought about putting this up just now.. I was adding everything to My list on Discogs and Musicbrainz but I ran out of steam. Actually it's easier just to show the list from the boxes of my LPs. It took me years to collect these records (having no money) as I explored and grew my musical taste as I grew up. In my memory my collection is huge. But now it is just 3 boxes. They are listed in the order in which I bought them. So you can see how my exploration developed. I only bought things that my friends wouldn't. So there were 3 of us in the immediate circle of sharing music back in the day. That's why there seems to be big gaps (no Siouxsie or Cure?) in the collection. My collecting occurred during the 1980's. My tape collection was really the full landscape I suppose and started in 1976. I should really just make a list of the key records which are the highlights of my record collection; that might be more suitable. But 'til then...

12 inch Singles collection - remember they were all the rageCollapse )

However, I have nowhere to store these records.... they are in a storage unit which costs me hundreds of £'s per year. Crazy! Yes records are ART!

As the ash spreads around the globe with the CO2...there'll be nice sunsets in southern Africa and you can see how minerals might reach what's left of the Amazon rainforest...

Fingers crossed my flights don't get disrupted next week...

Good on ya girl, go for it. I hope this adds a more interesting and sensible alternative to the same old same old and gets more ppl involved because it is actually more directly useful to people instead of feathering some snooty London toffs who went to school with the PM.

But isn't it strange that the BBC website chooses to put an article about the formation of a new political party, into the Entertainment section... I hope it's also under Politics...but then, does anyone read that section? Oh maybe the commuters on the trains into London.

Yes the chances of this hitting anyone are small, but I've always wondered about those chances of bits hitting an aeroplane in flight... Especially as I'll be in the air for about 24 hours during that window when the Russians expect it to fall back through the atmosphere... fun, not. Maybe the odd Chilean volcano can help with scheduling ;)

Even with sprinkler systems etc, still these stores of history and craftsmanship get destroyed each year. Last year it was the Art College in Glasgow. Let's hope this is the last such building to be lost this year.

OPs finally seeing the light of day again.

They have managed to keep their heads in the sand over this and stall it for so long. It's disgraceful.

Back in 1997 I had a landlord who was a farmer. He had to give it up cos his health was failing due to OP poisoning. I notice some years later that the farm had been sold and the big old farmhouse had other homes in it's front yard etc. It had all been done up by a developer. The farming couple were really nice. It was sad to see another family farming business go and the heart of the village get turned over to commuters.
