Ago 3 2011, 15h39 por tlukes123Yet Another list. I like looking through people's music collection so I thought I'd share what mine looks like. I've been collecting vinyl for about a year and I think I have a pretty decent collection so far.
Edit 10/18/2011 : Added two Pearl Jam, Mrs. Miller, David Gilmour, Doobie Brothers and Jefferson Airplane
Edit 4/6/2012: Added Siouxsie and the Banshees Nocturne and A kiss in the Dreamhouse, Allman Brothers Fillmore, Joan Jett's Bad Reputation and Canned Heat Cookbook (Best of). There were quite a few other ones I had to pass up namely Fleetwood Mac's Then Play On and Skull & Roses from the Grateful Dead. Maybe next time...
Edit 7/5/2012: Picked up Cream, The Beatles, Buffalo Springfield, Jimi Hendrix and The Go-Go's this time. Must have hit the store right after a collection came in. Didn't expect to find that much but walked away with some definite classics. Buffalo Springfield skips a little bit but not that bad for an older record and the others are in really great shape.

Dez 1 2008, 3h00 por sablespecterIron Maiden / Killers / Killers (7) / Feb 1981
sablespecter's Album of the Year for 1981 (RDF: 91%)
Purchased along with NotB after seeing Maiden open for Scorpions at my first concert, I have never tired of this album after all these years, and never treated it with any less love than NotB despite my preference for Bruce Dickinson over Paul Di'Anno. As Paul himself once described it a few years back in an interview with Jeb Wright over on Classic Rock Revisited (now unavailable), Bruce is the better singer of the two, but not when it comes to delivering the material of the first two albums.
There are two things that I can never get enough of with this album. One: the gritty, punk-in-the-dark-alley vocals of Paul - that get no better than on the title track selection of this day and on Wrathchild - but still manage to carry a good melody, as in Prodigal Son. And while everyone knows that Bruce has an awesome range and sustain, Paul could also deliver at times, too. …
Jul 14 2008, 4h20 por sablespecterMen At Work / "Down Under" / Business As Usual (3) / Dec 1981
Artist: Men at Work
Original Album: Business As Usual
Track: Down Under
Completing a weekend of grade school memories - hard to stop them once they start - this is yet another album acquired with much wisdom and great sixth-grade taste.
Who the hell outside of Australia knew what a "vegemite sandwich" was? Does anybody outside of Australia even know now?
If you don't have any Men At Work and really have a burning desire to acquire, then Contraband: The Best of Men at Work is really all that I find to be essential.

Mar 3 2008, 6h15 por sablespecterSparked by a question from kaleidoscopick, I thought it might be good for fellow vinyl fans to have a look into their collections and ante up!
Lemme know what's in your collection...all in?
Royal Flushes - complete catalogs:
Led Zeppelin is my only complete vinyl discography
Straight Flush - uninterrupted runs in a discography:
Iron Maiden (through Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son)
Black Sabbath (through Seventh Star) - longest run of 12 studio albums, and 14 overall including We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'n' Roll and Live Evil
Ozzy Osbourne (through No Rest for the Wicked)
Rush (through Grace Under Pressure)
Deep Purple (through Come Taste The Band)
Van Halen (through OU812) - I really didn't want to let go after 1984!
Krokus (through The Blitz)
Journey (through Raised on Radio)
Def Leppard (through Hysteria)
Triumph (through The Sport of Kings) - but see Nagging Big Holes below
Aces - Favorite specific pieces, especially those that may be unusual, meaningful, or high-value:

Nov 3 2006, 23h51 por alexdw_mgziLast weekend, I made a pilgrimage to Wooden Nickel in Fort Wayne, Indiana (the local used record store), and purchased three albums:
Duran Duran (The Wedding Album)
Business As Usual
These are some quality albums. I must say that The Wedding Album is much weaker than I expected, on the strength of Ordinary World. Medazzaland suffers from the same problem -- perhaps Duran Duran should have left their legacy alone?
Anyway, earlier today I made a trip to the local pawn shop, who sells CDs at 5 for $10. I picked up these albums:
Recovering The Satellites
Get The Knack
Bat out of Hell II
To Live and Die in L.A.
Oranges & Lemons
We shall see how good these are. I don't have high expectations for the the non-single tracks by The Knack, Counting Crows, Janet Jackson or Whitesnake, but we shall see.
Let the ripping commence...
