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.
“Late this afternoon, I scored this copy of ‘Cecil Taylor Unit’ for two dollars while thrifting. This title has been on my list forever. It’s in very good condition. (I) almost didn’t hang in there (i.e., keep crate digging) due to the copious amounts of empty covers. Far out, man.”
