Re: [Classic_Rock_Forever] Re: Henry Rollins: The Column! Are You Collector Scum?


Hey Zapple, I'm hanging on to a lot of the stacks at this point. We've
recently changed houses, moved back into the city and part of that process
involved moving all that vinyl. Finding a place for it all was something
that I dithered and debated quite a lot. Do I keep it? Sell it? put it in my
will ; ) ?, etc.

Supposedly, I have a master plan to convert it all, then sell the less
sentimental stuff. Problem is, it's the sentimental stuff that I already
re-bought in cd form. So, here I sit with the Black Sabbath library on
vinyl, yet I also own the Black Box set from a few years ago, that has every
Ozzy era album in all its remastered glory. I doubt that I'll ever spin a
Sabbath vinyl again. Couple that with the fact that I could probably sell
them quite easily, considering that they are as popular as ever.
Same with Alice, Deep Purple, etc.

I can't sing, so what's a poor boy gonna do ; )

...I guess punting always an option

I stil have some of my albums even though I don't have a turntable.
My favorite album cover is The Faces' "Ooh La La." You push down on the top
of the album and the mouth goes up and down and the eyes back and forth.
