I've got to get my stuff reorganized and out of boxes and hiding places. I built a shelf at the end of the hall with three ~36" x 12.5" x ~14" shelves plus a cabinet a while back. I haven't put the doors on the cabinet though but it's wide enough for my 7" case.

Good pictures, I wish I was that orderly haha.

I was reading a vinyl collector website today and they had an article asking like CEOs and producers three basic questions:
What was your first vinyl you bought?
Last record you bought?
Most listened to record?

First record: I traded some random CD for a Peter and the Test Tube Babies "Supermodels" 7" that I have probably only listened to once. Then, shortly thereafter my friend and I went to the Grand opening of this short-lived hip hop/DJ store and I pitched in for a Del tha Funkee Homosapien 12" single with like the vocals and music separated for remixing and stuff. I think we thought it was an album? First real buy was Punk and Disorderly probably. I still have the Punk and Disorderly and Peter and the Test Tube Babies.

Last Record: Skitklass/Crimex split, Guitar Wolf Love&Jett, Mottek Riot, Nots 3, and Life Violence, Peace and Peace Research all ordered at the same time-ish (the nots was a pre-order). Right before that, I got neonblack's Ration Card LP.

Most Listened to Vinyl Records: Toss up between the Madness single collection, Kraftwerk The Man Machine, and Subhumans Worlds Apart.

It's kind of cheesy, but it keeps the vinyl talk goin'

Going to add one more though: Most coveted record you don't have?

Probably GISM M.A.N. (any non-bootleg GISM release actually) or Nervous Gender Music from Hell.

i cut out the "don't", because there's not really anything i'm dying to have these days.
my copy of this is probably the most valuable and most loved record i own:
https://www.discogs.com/Julius-Hemphill ... se/2515882
i bought my copy from a local store around 20 years ago for $42, which, at the time, was the most i'd ever spent for a record. now, (at least according to discogs sellers) it's worth more than 10X that.
it's a killer record, though, and it was recorded and self-released in my home town. i wouldn't sell it unless i was absolutely destitute.

Ah yes, I have that Hemphill record too. Took me quite a while to find one.

Hmmmmmm

1. Pretty sure first one was the "Story of Star Wars" https://www.discogs.com/Original-Cast-With-Naration-By-Roscoe-Lee-Browne-The-Story-Of-Star-Wars/release/717031
Closely followed by Boston (first one)

2. Last record was probably a gift for my son Ween "The Mollusk."

3. Most listened to is a toss up between King Crimson "Discipline" and Rites of Spring

Most coveted? Hmmmmm that's a thinker.

1-Last record you bought?
2-Most listened to record?
3-Most coveted record you [don't] have

1 - I think it was Ty Segall Deforming Lobes live record

2 - Probably Sleep's Holy Mountain or Daft Punk's Discovery

3 - it's not really rare, just expensive and 3xLP, but i would *love* to get All Things Must Pass

1. Last Record bought-Hal Rugg-Altered Ego

2.Most listened-Hmmm....probably the early Cecil Taylor, Anthony Braxton, Derek Bailey or Terje Rypdal (I have more of their stuff than any other artist).

3. Most coveted I don't have...hmmm...that's a tough one because I spent a lot of time (and cash) grabbing what I wanted. I guess if there is a vinyl version of Andrew Hill's Passing Ships (never seen one) that would be it. Finally grabbed the Bill Dixon Orchestra "Intents and Purposes" and Black Artist Group LP's so that covered that. Oh and finally got "Blues for Smoke" by Jackie Byard too. That was a tough one.

i've given away several copies of the Arista/Freedom version to friends.
i used to run across copies for just a few bucks & i'd buy it any time i did & just hand it off to someone i thought would dig it.
i haven't seen one in a store in a long time.

1 - First record I bought?
Seventeen Seconds by The Cure

2 - Last record you bought?
The Rotter’s Club by Haftfield and the North and Third by Soft Machine, both bought at a record fair a few months back

3 - Most listened to record?
Low by David Bowie or Maggot Brain by Funkadelic

4 - Most coveted record you [don’t] have?
honestly i don’t really know what’s the most coveted of our collection, i think one of the Zeppelin or the Who early pressings that my girlfriend has. I’ve been wanting Mark Hollis solo LP since ages but it’s way out of my budget, so that’s probably the most coveted one that i don’t have

This could have been me! However I didn't buy it, a friend gave it to me, and somewhere in the years of moving around it got lost. So the only record by them I own is Boys Don't Cry. Since I have all the others I really like on CD, I don't want to buy them again. But, here's my list.

1 - Joy Division - Closer

2 - Malady - ST (repress)

3 - Beau Navire - Lumens (I think. Hard to say since I don't usually like listening to any one record too much)

4 - Unwound - Leaves Turn Inside You (one of my absolute favorite records but only have it on CD)

Started with that one because it's my favorite, even if i already had it on cd ;)

Randomly went to Goodwill today and scored The Ray Charles Story, Beats: The Merseyside Sound, and Three Dog Night "Golden Bisquits," for $2 out the door :snax:

...weird mix, I know...
