It's mostly 70s/80s, because records died out in the early 90s, so stuff from that era is rare. I've got a little, and might invest in repressings, but I do prefer originals over repressings unless it's something crazy rare.

Punk, New Wave, Glam, and Classic Rock.

A bit of hair metal. I want a bit more.

Nice.  I have several dozen 7"ers and probably 20 or so albums that I bought throughout the 90s.  That's when I was immersed in underground Hardcore/Punk, Thrash, and Death Metal.  I miss those days.  I read fanzines and bought stuff from tiny little Indy record labels that people ran out of their garages and basements.  A lot of the records had pressings of only a thousand.  I wrote handwritten letters to bands all over the world, and they wrote back.  I walked out to my mailbox everyday with so much anticipation!

Would've been in "The Pegs" if it were toys. This is about music.

I have one crate. Dad's collection is quadruple that, and I get every one. Save for a single Clapton album that goes to my brother.

While there's nothing at all wrong with the digital age, there's things that today's kids miss out on without vinyl.  I love all the artwork and photos on an album cover.  I love the 'Thanks' list.  I love the lyrics being printed out.  On top of that, a hell of a lot of the bands I dig are all about lo-fi, so most of the stuff is recorded on analog equipment. 

Granted, I guess you can find all the stuff I mentioned online, but having it all in one little package is just fun.

Nice list.  Do you like TIN MACHINE by any chance?

I find it very funny how if you go back say....a dozen years ago, you couldn't buy a new record player if your life depended on it.  Now, they're easy to come by.  And there are a handful of rock bands that release stuff on vinyl along with CD and Digital.

More than a handful. Vinyl is back full swing.

I have no Tin Machine.

Today's vintage vinyl finds! (I already have a copy of Pleased to Meet Me, but it was a reissue.) I'm all about the vintage if I can find it, especially if it's from that late 80s-early 2000s dead era, where NOTHING was on vinyl.

I really thought you guys knew I was an audiophile? I used to write music articles for the Mess.

Rocko knew. One of the things we bonded over. Earned me the nickname "Jackass of all trades".

That's so cool, BLIS. 

I know this is a dumb question, but I assume there's a record store fairly close to where you live?

Tbh, not really.

When I hear "Record Store" I think of a shop that deals exclusively in vinyl. The closest one of those is 60 miles away.

That said, there are a lot of junk shops where I can buy used records.

Truthfully, I haven't been in a Record/CD store in years.  Lately, I've bought all my CDs from Amazon.  Mostly used, and fairly cheap.

The really crazy thing is that there are 2 actual record stores in downtown Lancaster, plus a third one that deals almost exclusively in Punk, and yet I've never been to any of them.  For that, I completely suck.

But the internet makes it so damned easy to mail order.  Plus, I listen to shitloads of music on YouTube.  Even a lot of the obscure stuff I like is on there!  For example:
