My son!! I knew you could do it. Now start the mower and cut that lawn!

On another note-- I've had a Discogs account since 2012, but just got around to starting to input my collection this year. Up to only 450 records and CDs and tapes (after one-week of painstaking entry)... Soooooooo many more, plus DVDs and VHS' to go. Already seems like a forever project.

i just did all my vinyl (got rid of all my CD's, actually traded them in for more vinyl lol). Got 272 LP's, not bad, it's a great site to aggregate so you don't buy doubles and to keep track of stuff you want to get.

The records were starting to accumulate and I thought wow I should probably make some kind of spreadsheet so I know what I've got.
Then I came across Discogs and ..well hell. Signed up in May of 2012.

Been on a buying/acquiring spree lately. Mostly LP's, but some CD's (love the box sets), and some 7-inches as well.

I celebrated record store day yesterday by buying a bunch of things at three locations (that _do not_ participate in "Record Store Day" [tm]). It's gotten political, corporate, and expensive the last few years, so it's hard for smaller stores to participate. I also didn't feel like fighting the crowds. But I still love it...

Anyway, I went to two shops and an estate sale (actually three estate sales, but the other two only had the standard doilies, light bulbs, and Mantovani records), and picked-up about 12 records ranging from $1.50 for a 2 LP Basie set to $16 for a Mike Oldfield "Tubular Bells" picture disc. Average was between $6.50-$7.00 per LP; all in great shape.

I acquired, and will be listening, or have listened to:

*Mike Oldfield-- Tubular Bells
*Focus-- Moving Waves
*Ahmad Jamal-- Live at the Pershing
*The Poll Winners: Barney Kessel, Ray Bryant, and Shelly Manne
*Irakere-- Irakere
*Count Basie-- 16 Men Swinging
*John Coltrane-- Black Pearls
*Jackie Davis-- Jumpin' Jackie Davis at the Hammond Organ
*James Cotton-- 100% Cotton
*Chess Records-- Wrinkles: Classic & Rare Chess Instrumentals
*Jose Mangual-- Buyu

Pretty psyched about the windfall!

Great stuff Gregg!

I picked up a copy of this. Store said they requested 30 copies, but only received 10.
This morning entering it into my collection on Discogs I see guys selling it for $35-$40 on up. Ugh. (edit: 4/24 there are several in the low $20's now listed ..)

^^^^"We shall call you 'CrateFull,' the god of vinyl purchases you shall be!"

Haven't been able to post here for several days because the new Baracuda filter on my work Internet connection is blocking access. Through estates sales, thrift stores, record shops, and a record show (today), I've recently brought home quite a bit of vintage/NOS vinyl. Just a few highlights: Dave Brubeck's "Time in Outerspace," four different Jean Luc Ponty LP's, more Count Basie, three by Johnny Hodges, an exotica album by Enoch Light, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, "Two Decades of Jazz" (1956 on EmArcy), Ray Mantilla, Charles Lloyd, Lester Young, Johnny Winter, Bobby Hutcherson, Cal Tjader, Strawbs, "Blues Deluxe," and Family. Too many more to list or remember here right now...

I also grabbed five nice CD packages today. "The Best of Malo," John Coltrane's "Interstellar Space" and "The Complete Africa/Brass Sessions," Art Blakey's "Soul Finger," and Jack Dejohnette's "Selections." Picked-up Airto's "Fingers" and have been playing the heck out of it. A nice Black Uhuru box set too.

Owning great sounding music in a nice package is 1,000,000X better than leasing files, imho.

"Vintage/New Old Stock vinyl". Do you mean some sealed copies miraculously found in shipping boxes in a warehouse from back in the day here?

For my part, I just received Robyn Hitchcock's new self titled. His 22nd album, Psychedelia alt tracked in Nashville. (and well packed!) "an ecstatic work of negativity".

There might have been a couple legit NOS items, shed. The only two that I can think of right now are the John "Spider" Martin LP on Improv (brand new never opened/sealed), and I think the Jose Mangual "Buyu" album.

Fancy de-shrink-wrapper, btw. Is that a Cold Steel?
