    God, I used to buy records (Albums & Singles) buy the bucket load, back when I was a Teenager & I resisted CD's up untill the Beatles started to release their albums on Cd in the late 80's.

    So, I slowly moved to CD & eventually sold my Vinyl albums for a pittence around 2001'ish.

    How I've regetted that in the intervining years, but, as I now have sooo many CD's, I won't be going back. Despite, IMO, vinyl has a "warmer" sound to CD.

    Still, live "n" learn!

    I ordered a bunch of black metal albums with my movie theater wages when I was a teen. I wonder if I'll ever listen to them again LOL

    If you're looking at a "re-issue/re-master" of an original LP/vinyl release, it's a good idea to consult Discogs.com to check how the new release was mastered and read other listener's comments.

    If you haven't heard of the "loudness wars", here's some information from the web:

    Sometimes, the "LP/vinyl/original" release has better "dynamic range" than the CD/digital release.

    I had a large collection of LP's but they pretty scratched up and didn't play well. I replaced them with cd's and was getting ready to toss the vinyl, but my brother said he could sell them for me in his antique shops. And he did. Despite being badly scratched. The album covers were in good shape and his customers (who mostly said they had no record player!) just wanted them to display them.

    Got about 300 old LP's i hardly listen to, the wife keeps nagging me about getting rid of them but they remind me of a time when i could party all night and still feel alive in the morning. Rigged up the old player after seeing this post and it still works, might reminise to the sounds of Slade and others but some of them jump a bit so i'm going to start cleaning them all. Thanks for the inspiration to get my act togethere and start going back in time.

    I used to have 100's of records but have got rid of most of them. I kept the ones that meant the most to me and the ones with the coolest covers. I have them all on display in my music room. I also kept a Technics turntable if I ever want to give the kids and grandkids a history lesson.

    I'd love to collect vinyl soundtracks like the ones from Waxwork records but it's just another expense, I have to be loyal to what I already collect.
