Alex’s old record player kicked the bucket a few weeks ago. We just got a new one, an upgrade, together. For the first time I’m digging my heels into the world of vinyl.
I started adding to Alex’s collection the other day at Amoeba Records in Berkeley. Alex has a lot of jazz, some classical, and a smattering of rock and pop. I probably will strengthen the rock and folk collections the most. Here are three of my first record purchases:
Janis Joplin – Pearl. Queen – A Night At The Opera. Neutral Milk Hotel – In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.
I’m starting a list of things that I would love to have in this format. My musically-knowledgable friends are teaching me what to look for, and what to avoid. Any suggestions? What are your favorite records?
Please support record stores, hardworking artists, and your heirloom collection by purchasing music legally.
