While looking for my spare amplifier earler today I looked in a cubbyhole where I found approx 100 LPs. I thought I'd dumped all my LPs years ago. :)

I haven't checked them out at all, dunno what they are.

I'll have a look sometime. I could even play them as I still have a cheap Bush MTT1 turntable which was with my pile of old electronic stuff to take to the tip.

Then they'll be taken to the tip too. :D

Don't bin them :eek: ...take them to a vinyl store or offer them online.

Go on, tell us how bad they are. I won't tell anyone, promise :D

Let them eat rich, expensive, funny-shaped, yellow, eggy buns.

Hardly, I only have a small semi but the two front bedrooms are full of junk. The records are in the footwell of a built-in dressing table which had some stuff blocking it. :):

I really do have an awful lot of stuff to take to the tip someday.

Well, I'll see what they are first. Don't think there are any copies of the White Album amongst them though. :)

The kids wrecked all our vinyl years ago in an early morning 'indoor skating' extravaganza on tiles.

I can still hear those final, dying screeches of our lifetimes' collection in my nightmares :mad1:

I had a quick look when I went ut to use the loo just now and grabbed a few of em.

I'm surprised and very pleased that my Elgar Dream of Gerontius boxset is there - I thought I'd binned that when I got the CD version. I'll be able to compare the two - I always thought the CD version much poorer. Though I only have the Bush Mtt1 to play the LPs on now. :(

Some others -

I've got two copies of the White Album. One numbered the other not. I oughta check what the number is as I believe lower numbers are worth a lot of dosh

Vinyl is becoming very trendy these days but my days of faffing about with record decks are over. I'm an old-fashioned digital guy now. :)

Got my MTT1 working okay (though not got much treble) and played a Dr John record. Dunno why I ever bought that - it is terrible. :rofl:

Make a list, then you need to see what condition they are in. Post the list here. I may be interested, but you can be certain I'll not give you true value! :rofl:

My desire to play some of the old LPs finally overcame my reluctance to buy some new obsolete equipment. Decision probably helped by having a little too much booze that night as well. :rofl:

It was after I heard a performance in the Proms which didn't impress but I knew I had a much better version in a box set. Set still available to buy on LPs but not transcribed to CD yet, and due to its age probably never would be. Got other stuff to play as well.

Though I didn't remember your recommendation Swing I did get a Rega RP1 (with performance pack) and have set it up this afternoon. Seems to work fine. :)

So I have some comparative listening to do sometime, maybe start late tonight.

I'm now wishing I hadn't had that de-clutter a few years ago as I'd still have had several hundred LPs rather than just 100 which were hidden away. :):

Well at least you've still got the 100.

I hate throwing stuff away to be honest

Hoarders is hoarders :)



Seriously, check your vinyl out online if you can. I have Led Zep's first album here and the time for "How Many More Times" is wrong on the back cover.

White album worth up to £7k :eek4: If you have the right one................

Ayup, this could be mine:



6 LED ZEPPELIN Led Zeppelin 1969 Atlantic 588 171 £1,000

This first pressing with the rare turquoise sleeve, "superhype" publishing credit and unscratched-out matrix number has a guide price of £1,000 in our Rare Record Price Guide. When I was at Spitalfields fair recently, a dealer had four on his stall with no takers - none Mint, mind. Then again, a couple of months ago a Mint copy sold for a whopping £2,000. The limited number of pristine copies out there means they are going to hold their value, as most turn up in VG to Excellent condition. Pristine "orange" sleeves are also ones to go for.

I'll have to dig it out sometime....................

I think I checked my serial number on the white album and it wasn't one of the really low valuable one, but worth a few hundred quid still

Just playing one of my Bach Kammermusik box set on new deck. Played much better than the woman on the Proms managed. :)

Though have noticed a hum, which on investigating, is from the deck's motor (having removed the platter and rubber band). Having looked it up on the net I find I am supposed to run the thing for 48 hours to burn in. Which I suppose I will do. It comes through to the speakers as well as being there direct even when turntable just rotating but connected to anything at all. :(

Have examined my box-set and not the slightest scratch or blemish on any of 'em, though I still get the odd pop and crackle. Which has to be expected I suppose. I forget how I used to try to deal with that in ancient history. Think I remember various antistatic things plus I had a little brush and roller mounted on the deck which got there before the stylus.

I recall treating some records with warm water and Fairy liquid IIRC, though those were mainly ones I got from record libraries. :)

Digital has soooo many advantages though. I doubt I'll be a convert to vinyl. :D
