Having a bit of an LP clear out, I do this ever so often. (sorry buyer already sorted).

 

That's the problem with LP's, there are countless great singles but not many truly great albums.

 

So I have to lower my standards are lower when buying LP's or I'd rarely ever buy one. I'm a collector but not interested in owning anything that I don't really like or wouldn't play over and over.

 

So from now on, I'm not buying an LP because the art is cool, or based on one track I might have heard.  It's off to youtube to listen ...listen a lot...before I part with my dosh.

 

It's not quality over quantity, its quality and quantity I strive for.:)

Got With The Beatles (Beatles) for £4 and Double Fantasy (Lennon) for £2 from eBay. Bloke just round the corner was selling so I collected... Both are in great condition, no jumps and play fine. With The Beatles has a bit of a battered sleeve but it is the second pressing so it's really old. 

 

Can't complain for £6.

Good that! .... Definitely Maybe - very good! Always seems fairly expensive whenever I've seen it to buy. Think I'll buy Hatful of Hollow soon though.

Don't think they did much shopping around, I expect they were all HMV lol

 

Did you have to buy speakers or was yours loud enough?

I haven't got speakers yet - I don't play it that loudly - but I'' probably get speakers eventually.

Do you mean you have built in speakers?  If so the new models are usually pretty awful.  I have an old hacker gondolier which has in built speakers but the sound is very good and incredibly loud if you need it.

 

Get some separate speakers, even a couple of wharfedale speakers 9.1 can be picked up for cheap and are great.  I used to hook up my hifi are turntable to them.

 

Nice start to your collection there.

Is that the purple (or violet I suppose) coloured record or the black one for the national? I have the coloured version and the sound quality is awful. Great album though.

Yeah mate it's the violet vinyl one though it plays fine for me - haven't noticed anything poor. Such a great record regardless, England is going with me to the grave. Such a fantastic band.

I stopped buying records to save for the European tour. So being able to resume is one of the very few positives of us getting knocked out! 

 

*Logs in to Discogs*

 

I see prices have inflated quite substantially in the past 12 months... Great. I forgot how expensive this game was.

I found the orignal a couple of years back. Record was perfect but cover had a library sticker stuck to the front. The waxworks reissue is a very good also.
