I know this is a blasphemous statement, but you have too many records if that kinda stuff is happening to you.

What I mean is you should give the “dross” to me.

I was thinking this SAME thing tonight (kinda). I was listening to “Engine #9” on the way to Target (sorry Tony!) and it occurred to me I never listened to the rest of that album. Now that’s blasphemy Mr. Bobo.



I have a ton of records that I skim through and only rock one or 2 main songs without giving the whole LP a listen.

But yeah, back on topic, everyone has done that “oh, shit! what is that?” only to find out you have 3 copies.

bumblebeeee!


its a nice feeling knowing you can always dig in the crates without leaving the house. i know theres some things ive only listened to quickly once. what might have been wack once, i might liking a couple years later, too.

yep. re-bought stuff with no memory of owning it, tracked down a song and artist only to find it already back home. done this with well known stuff, most recently with ‘gears’. how the f did i forget i had it?!? i think you start blending pictures, articles, and web info with your own piles after a while. like on the recent weekly finds, that ‘united sounds’ LP kevin found, im positive i have that. or do i? its weird. for me, being away from the collection for months at a time only adds to the problem. i bring home crates of ‘road finds’ and i end up with crazy doubles all the time.

its true, at a certain point, you will never hear everything youve got. at least i wont… but its STILL fun to find more. i make it a point to stack up all ‘new arrivals’ and at least play a whole side before filing it. this is how i find both samples and tracks for compilations. this leads to an insane ‘new arrival stack’, but i just power through 20-30 at a time, all day when i can, while doing work or whatever. if they suck its faster: ‘what the hell? get this offa my record player!’
