    Interesting story on how 33 1/3 r.p.m. was developed. Music had to be synched up to 35 mm film way back when.

    http://history.sandiego.edu/GEN/recording/speeds.html

    "...it was determined that 11 minutes of playing time would require 33-1/3 grooves for each minute or 366.6 grooves."

    I have about 100 or so records stashed away somewhere and a boat load of 45 r.p.m.s.

    Highlights: Sgt. Pepper, a really scratched Zep 3 with an inscription on the outro (I guess this might be worth something to someone of that nature), Aerosmith Bootleg & Rocks, Van Halen 1984, Kiss Creatures & Elder, INXS, The Babys, etc..

    Who wants em? I'm sure I'll get around to a yard sale one day.

      Showing my age here, but I collected all through the mid-seventies to mid-eighties, so I have about six milk crates stuffed to capacity with full length records. I own an old Harmon Kardon belt-drive table, but it's currently in dry dock. I'm thinking of investing in a DJ quality table because they're more durable and versatile.

      The vinyl being pressed currently surpasses anything that was pressed in the seventies. Add to this the fact there are a number of re-issue companies putting out excellent product as well as tiny indie labels with limited pressings who go all-out in terms of quality and deluxe packaging and artwork. Oddly enough, it has never been a better time to become a vinyl hound.

        I'll actually buy some vinyl off someone if they are selling any. PM me if you are. Thanks.

          Jaws -- dripping with disease
          Fingers for use of weaponry,
          Mind spins in fervor of murder's design
          Unleashing our buried primal desires.
          Fits of hysteria have claimed the hearts of man
          The panic ridden are consumed, their bones dry in the sun,
          The zombies multiply with haste
          The streets are stained with human waste.

            just got a Montgumory Ward Airplaine model AM/FM 8 track and 33 turn-table console free from a friend of mine that knew I collected records and soon will get around to teaching myself how to repair turn-tables and it works fine. I even found exterior ports to add a tape player as well. So I have something I get to mess with over the holidays.

                        just bought MF DOOM's Operation: Doomsday vinyl, been OOP for a very long time.

                        picked it up for about 40$, every other seller has it for about 100 or more.

                          I got into collecting vinyl because a lot of my favorite bands have albums and singles that are vinyl-only releases. Plus records tend to be hella cheap.
                          Some off the top of my head:
                          Bomb The Music Industry! - "To Leave Or Die In Long Island"
                          Rocket From The Crypt - "Hot Charity"
                          Dillinger Four - "More Songs About Girlfriends And Bubblegum"
                          The Copyrights - "Button Smasher"
                          Aus-Rotten - "The System Works...For Them"

                          And some old Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye records my mom had in the attic.

                            Their best in my opinion. Great record.

                              I have a rather ancient Sears model multi-function stereo (even though the eight track and the cassette deck bit the dust looong ago). It's still fantastic; it plays vinyl shockingly well.

                              As for the collection, my dad passed his records onto me. I'm still on the lookout for anything badass, but here's a few of the good ones:

                              AC/DC--Back In Black
                              Guns n Roses--Appetite for Destruction
                              Alice Cooper's Greatest Hits
                              Steve Martin's Let's Get Small (comedy album)
                              Richard Pryor--Are You Serious?!
                              Cheech and Chong's Greatest Hit
                              Bob Seger--Live Bullet
                              Lynyrd Skynyrd--Prounounced
                              ZZ Top--Eliminator
                              Richard Pryor--The Wizard of Comedy

                              "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."--HST

                                I was in the record store, staring at all 3 trying to decide. I think I made the best choice, it seems like the album most suited for vinyl play.

                                I like the new av. very dub. hahah.
