This is a blog describing the descent into madness brought about by record collecting. It is primarily about the hunt, the smells, the disappointments, the excitement, and the random occurrences surrounding vinyl records. I listen to them too, a lot, but from my perspective the hunt is what makes collecting records an exciting hobby, although it may be maddeningly frustrating and incomprehensible to those around me.
On the hunt for:
Articles of Faith-Give Thanks LP
Bhopal Stiffs 10 song demo tape
Black Cat Bones-Barbed Wire Sandwich LP
Blues Creation - Live LP
Freddie Hubbard-Black Angel LP
Henry Franklin - The Skipper LP
Herbie Hancock-Flood LP
Mount Everest Trio - LP
Revenant - Prophecies of a Dying World LP
Sam Cooke-Ain't That Good News LP
Sam Cooke-Night Beat LP
Strike Under-Immediate Action 12" EP
The Effigies-Haunted Town 12" EP
The Virgil Lights - (anything else out there besides the 45?)
Watchtower-Energetic Disassembly LP

The loss of a record collection.
This is an extremely sad and depressing story about a man who hired a moving company which lost most of his record collection. Last time I moved, my records sat in the passenger seat next to me in a moving truck. Now, that would be impossible because of its size, but I would never let someone else touch them. What was this guy thinking??
