Calavera's Record Collection Thread

Post by Calavera » Thu Jul 23, 2020 12:09 pm

I posted a few records I'd picked up a couple of days ago in my Goodwill thread but I generally don't post the records I pick up. Today I decided to photograph all the records I currently own. Since I have them all photographed I figured why not post them here and let people take a look at them. From now on any records I get at Goodwill will be posted here.

As you will see there is really no rhyme or reason to the records I collect. If it looks interesting to me I'll pick it up. If it is something from the late 80s onwards I will usually get it even if it is something I've never heard of. New and old if it has an interesting cover I'll buy it. An example of that are the three "Country Cruisin" records. I bought them because I like the vintage cars on the covers. Sometimes those random records end up having some good music on them. I do actually listen to them although I will admit I haven't yet listened to every single one I own I do plan on eventually checking out each one. But enough talk here are the pics!

Since I posted all my records I might as well post my current setup for playing them.

So there it is. My record collection as of July 22nd 2020. If anybody else wants to post some of their records or retro stereo setup feel free to! This thread doesn't have to be all about me! :olol:

If I'd seen that collection without knowing it was yours, I probably still could have guessed that it belonged to you.

Not a criticism, mind you. It's just the most Calavera thing ever.

I only have like 10 records, but in the interest of the thread, I’ll get some pics of my Dads Records when I can.
(Which I guess are mine? I’ve claimed the record player. But not the actual records)

After Sesame Street Fever, why did humanity keep pressing records?
I mean it’s not EVER getting better than that.

Oh you can tell by the way I move my head I’m a puppet man, by a hand I’m lead
Man off camera, stitched at seams
I’m stored in a box behind the scenes

And now it's alright, it's all planned
And you may use the other hand!

Sesame Street Fever was the one that stuck out to me as well.

:rofl: That one is actually still sealed. I can't imagine why nobody ever opened it up! Just look it it! Those are the dorkiest looking people I've ever seen. I bought just because I thought it was funny.

there's a few good things mixed in there. and some missing.
They might be with the 3rd record player under the house.

All the others are buried behind a trillion tonnes of computer parts, video games, cassettes and VHS tapes.
When I next clean out I'll get some pics then.

I'm still annoyed that you guys got 45s with a regular sized hole in the middle while we got the ones with the giant hole that you have to use an adapter for. Or just make sure you place it perfectly centered. Either way it is annoying and yes I've seen the Techmoan video about it :)

They should have done them all like the Elvis record in picture 4 (3rd one) That would have made life a lot better.

2 of my 3 record players have that adapter, but they've literally never been used.

Was the same here with the regular sized record hole. I have some 45s with the circular hole too, which were either US imports or from a jukebox. It seems the large hole was all due to an early format war
