Anyone? How long? Main format you own, or just a minor interest? Trophy records? Bands you collect? Specific labels you dig? Etc, etc.
LPs, you know, those black shiny things. . .
really like MoFi LPs, as well as a few other reissues.
Trophy? just found a pristine Dark Side of the Moon, original issue
at half price books for $7.00

Klark Kent, 10" green vinyl.

I still have all my vinyl, will forever.
I haven't listened to any since my amp (Dynaco Stero 70) died. Too many other things in the works now to replace the amp.
I always look through yard sale stuff to see if anything is worht adding to my collection.
There are alot of places to fix that st70, or better yet send it to me, I'll send
you something new and souless. . . .

Thanks for the offer, but after having it to two techs (local to me when i lived in LA) and three years of waiting to have it fixed, I gave into exasperation when I moved and tossed it.
Now, years later, I know I could have sold the transformers out of it for more money than I paid for the whole thing.
I also found several people selling parts that probably actually could have fixed it if i had kept it.(one of the bias channels went out.)

I love vinyl, It's pretty much the only format i buy now, unless it's something i can't get on vinyl (like plan-it-x). Vinyl can be so addicting though, when you really start collecting it and try to find rare records its impossible to quit. Some of the more rare records are have are Chumbawambas "never mind the ballots LP, Jawbreakers "Live at Gilman" 7" and a somewhat rare Radio Birdman 7" and an out of print Milkshakes LP.

Yeaaah...I want that Jawbreaker 7", thanks.
Die, Emperor! Die! - Demo Tape (Okay, so it's not a record, but it's limited to fifty copies and is one of the best demos I've ever heard...and I got it for free from the people who run the label, long after it was waaaay out-of-print)
Evergreen - Trudy Pushpin 7" (Traded a Volume 11 12" and Boilermaker one-sided 7" for this)
Moss Icon - It Disappears 12" (Found in a used bin for $3 in Detroit)
Navio Forge - As We Quietly Burn a Hole Into... 12" (I payed $50 for this!)
The Pine - Self-Titled 7" (Someone on my vinyl trading board sold this to me for $5 postage-paid...I don't think he knew what he had)
The Pine - Self-Titled 12" (When Spencer from Into the Hurricane records found a box of these, I was the first person to snatch one up...$8, and it sells for about $25 on EBay or something)
September - Self-Titled 10" (This record was really easy to find until 2002...my friend sold all of the copies he had in his distro, which was more copies than the label itself had, and after that there was nothing left and it sells for a good deal of money now)
V/A - Ghost Dance 2x7" with Indian Summer, CaP'n Jazz, Embassy, From Ashes Of, Braid, and Third Rail Rhyme (I traded an in-print compilation 12" to someone who had doubles...such an amazing record!)

I got lots...
The very second Sunny Day Real Esate 7" purchased at their show at the Middle East in Boston before they put out their debut
Throb, Throb by Naked Raygun on original vinyl
The very first Pearl Jam X-mas 7"
The "Tristessa" Sup Pop single by the Smashing Pumpkins
...all just off the top of my head
