Sorry for the ultra-crappy pictures, but a few fun ones hanging on the wall:







Not a record, but an original poster:



And sadly enough, this is where the majority of the records live. I want to address this situation before they all get ruined. I know a lot of the albums from this thread are in there, but I don't even know the extent.



I don't have any modern LPs, but there are a few albums I wouldn't mind having in LP form, at least for the art.

Eventually I started collecting for posterity... I want my sons to have access to real music in album form as they grow up. My oldest is already something of a musician and loves music, so it looks like it will see use as soon as I can trust him to dig through himself. My 1 year old has among his limited vocabulary this word: "Reh- cod! Reh- cod!"

and "bike!"

I'm not surprised that a forum with many vintage bike lovers also has some audiophile LP collectors.

Just the tip of the iceberg, BB. Those are some of the choice cuts, though-- I sure have a LOT of total crap, too.

The Monk plays Ellington is a fine recording. I mean, it's Monk. Playing Ellington. Not as classic as Monk. or Straight No Chaser though. I should give it another listen soon. Monk really has a deep sense of melody as he plsys with the chords and rhythms, I think, so familliar tunes like Ellington's are a pleasure to ear as he interprets them.

Only the choice cuts for this thread. Preferably the rarest of the rare or out of print records.

I'm disappointed in the Musical Heritage Society's discography right now. They don't have the Mendelsshon Die erste Walpurgisnact Op. 60 suite from A Midsummer Night's Dream by the Royal Philharmonic, making my copy rare, but also meaning that I'm going to have trouble tracking down the rest of the piece. Not to mention I will definitely need to find this camera, because finding the cover art on the web is impossible. One of the coolest covers too. I wanted you all to see it.

How you can you have Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey sitting around a house with no turntables?

Turntables are like bikes, you gotta have at least 3 or 4.

Wow. I have to see if that one is still at my dad's house.

Here are a couple I have (or at least I think I do)

That Tomita Planets record is something else.... but it's a bit too "Disco Star Wars" for me...

I would love to hear what Wendy Carlos would have done with Holst.

That Aqualung and Spyro Gyra record are extra common, though.... but I'd love that Mr. Magic disc.
Not going to snap a photo right now, but I have these funky records, mint:

Yeah, the Prince and Brothers Johnson are everywhere too...but I think we'll file them under "classic".

Now if someone had the original Shuggie Otis version of Stawberry Letter 23....
