Three Hundred Sixty-Five

Three hundred sixty-five. The number of records I am hoping to amass in the next three years and leave it at that. I honestly do not feel the need to own every slice of licorice pizza ever made. Currently my re-booted record collection is at seventy-one discs [three 45s, nine 12 inch singles, fifty-nine full length albums]. A mixture of new and vintage pressings. I am not so much of a snob that I will turn down 180 gram but I would like to avoid it.

I am working on rebuilding classic Disco I once owned. I am adding plenty of  genres I truly dig: Experimental, Free Jazz, Soul, Primitive Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Art Rock, Jazz, Glam Rock, Outsider stuff and titles I once owned or always wanted.

As someone open to suggestions [especially from fellow music lovers], with this project I am doing the heavy lifting myself and sourcing new sounds via YouTube, Soundcloud, Aquarium Drunkard and Bandcamp. Collecting vinyl is an expensive hobby and I am working within tight financial restraints. Here is where the challenge lies. Add to this, I am still searching for a cost effective, quality turntable.

[Slaps hands together] I am going to make this happen.
