For the Love of Vinyl

 
I am busy reorganising my vinyl, culling the lesser-listened-to albums, and arranging the keepers (the ones in the picture) alphabetically, except for my Jazz albums (the single biggest pile). They will go onto the shelf as a sub-section... Interestingly, the "B" pile is the biggest, followed by the "J" pile. Think about your favourite music - where does it fit in? ("the" is ignored, so "The Beatles" are filed under "B"). ‪#‎vinyl‬ ‪#‎collector‬‪#‎obsessivecompulsive‬ ‪#‎ilovemusic‬


Yes, they made them like this too! Flashpoint by Tangerine Dream. Actually, better than one would have expected! Still, a novelty LP, and a great one to have in my collection of over 2000 vinyl discs... #vinyl #music#obsessivecompulsive


On the Rega Planar 2 (What a great turntable! Especially with the SME IIIs tonearm) - Warren Zevon #vinyl #greatmusic


I love the Beatles, and the final couplet in this song is spot on, but, seriously, it took four grown men to write this song?

"Oh yeah, all right
Are you gonna be in my dreams tonight?

Love you, love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you

And in the end, the love you take
Is equal to the love you make."

Written by JOHN LENNON, JOHN WINSTON, PAUL MCCARTNEY & PAUL JAMES.

I popped out at 11pm last night to go and pick up this beauty. Chatted with the lovely Anne and Neville until almost 12pm! Then spent most of today (and quite a bit of money) getting all the parts I needed to get this up and running again, and did a full service, clean, oil, adjust, glue back wooden bits and re-balance the tonearm. Now spinning perfectly; looking good, sounding great - my first Rega Planar restoration! (BTW this is Johnny van der Heyden's turntable too!) #vinyl #turntable #vintage


That's all Folks!
