It's all about quality over quantity

I thinned down my collection to now I listen to every record in my collection. 1000+ records and I listen to every single one

I prefer to have both quality and quantity, the two are not mutually exclusive.

Oh I agree, the more the better. Just listen to all of them. I've seen people with 10k record collections and they don't listen to a 1% of those records.

Sure but at some point the sheer numbers don't work anymore.

Even with "only" 1000 records, if you averaged 5 records a day (which is a lot) you wouldn't be able to listen to the same record more than twice a year to be able to listen to all of them within a year.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Numbers shmumbers.

I guess my point is that I have records that I actually listen to.  Again, some people have massive collections to be collectors only. Collectors, completists, hoarders of vinyl. I don't see the point in that. My records are my media for music. They are to be played. Loud and as often as possible.

And I am in no way saying that's what you're doing.

I'm mad jealous and envious of the size of your collection.

Anyone else keep a list at discogs or anywhere else?

My vinyl list is analog and stashed inside my head.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

I picked up the Siamese Dream / Smashing Pumpkins 20th re-issue.

Sounds so good, packaging is awesome.  Only $23, I was happy.

That and the Gish reissue are great.

Haven't gotten the Gish yet, but the Siamese Dream has been in regular rotation for the last couple of weeks.


Good stuff.

Bob Dylan mono box set came in yesterday. Starting from the beginning. 4 songs into the eponymous first album and I gotta say it sounds wonderful.

So this arrived at my house last week too.  I have to say I am VERY impressed with all aspects of it:  packaging, quality, sound quality, attention to detail.  I love how they provide the original paper inner sleeve that was issued for each record but put the actual vinyl in a plastic one.  The records sound amazing, I am only through the second one.  The book is dope with some great pics I have never seen before.  Awesome quality.  I know RJ was looking at this, after receiving this, I would say it's essential.  Not cheap though.  I got a mine from Newbury Comics, $200 with shipping brand new.  You could prolly find a used one for $150 if you're patient. Or maybe a new one.  I shopped it and $200 was about the going rate. Worth every penny.

Currently $168.03 at Amazon. $1.97 cheaper than when I ordered it.
