Anyone collect their vinyls?
« on: February 21, 2005, 10:02:38 PM »

I have a few of their albums on records, they're really cool. I really enjoy the sound.. Does anyone else have any records from the Beatles? I only have a few but I want to get them all. Yet with a price of around $60 for a mediocre condition of Sgt. Pepper I don't think it will happen any time soon.

I see. There's a record store downtown but they sell pretty expensive stuff. I have Let it Be, Abbey Road, and The White Album.

Let it Be and Abbey Road were ok, but the White Album cost me $40 I think. Of course it is a two vinyl set and some of the Beatles best work though.

white album cd cost around 32 dollars on amazon so i'd say it was a pretty good deal for it.

I have Rubber Soul and With The Beatles that my mom's friend gave to me. I also have a copy of Walls and Bridges that I got at Value Village for $2.00 (I (heart) Value Village!) It's not in very good condition, but hey, for two bucks...

I'm 38 and started collecting when I was 7--way before alot of you were born (thanks alot for making me feel old...Actually, I'm a 16 year old in a 38 year old body). Anyways, I have all kinds of vinyl, I think around 180 albums and probably around 80 or 90 45s. I have all the US releases, mostly on Apple, imports from everywhere. I wouldn't give up my vinyl for nothing. I hate to shill for ebay, but you can get albums in pretty good shape that aren't as expensive as the ones you guys have been looking at. Of course it all depends on what label, condition, sealed/unsealed, etc. that you are looking for. Check it out, otherwise you can find a ton of different sites besides Ebay that specialize in vinyl. Try a Google search and you'll come up with alot. Hope this helps.

It was a great time to collect-we're talking late '70s/early '80s. There used to be independent record stores that weren't part of huge chains like they are now, and some would carry all kinds of imports--so you could buy a copy of 'Hard Day's Night' from Uruguay for $12.99 and weird stuff like that. Albums at Woolworths were $6.47. 45s were under $1.00, and I didn't make much on allowance, but when the Beatle bug hit, I spent it on albums, and over the years, it became a hobby. Unfortunately when you're a kid, you don't treat the albums quite right and I played the hell out of them. I was the only 3rd grader playing stuff backwards. But my advice for the kids is that they can still find decent used vinyl without spending a fortune. I just replaced my copy of Magical Mystery Tour with the booklet for about $9.00 and its in good shape. I think if they do a Google search and just type in 'Beatles vinyl', they'd come up with a ton of sites.

It breaks my heart to think of the albums I had in the 70's and totally destroyed. I had an original Sticky Fingers with the zip that I turned into a poster. The original round Odgeons Nut Gone Flake, which I gave way. And the Let it Be book-I chopped it up to make a cover for a bootleg!

Be careful with those punk albums... It's totally insane what people pay for original punk LP's from the 70s and 80s nowadays.

I've been collecting records for about 30 years and like PC i have more than I care to count. My favorite things are bootlegs and 45s with the original picture sleeves. I have most all of my collection on cd, but could'nt turn loose of my vinyl. Theres just something about the covers, picture sleeves, and colored vinyl that a cd can't replace. For the younger group just starting to collect or would like to collect, try ebay. I have had great luck finding rare items at bargin prices. A word of caution though, read sellers feedback, item description, shipping costs and scrutinize all photos thoroughly. One final tip NEVER buy without a photo of an item unless you know or have done business with the seller first. 8)

I sold all my vinyl in '85 when I changed countries and man do I regret it.
CD's can never replace them.
