Well, I buy records all the time AND I'm the one who started this thread. I have been severely remiss...Now that my 914 Porsche's are tucked away I need to get on it.
Most recently, someone I know peripherally gave me his records, all in pretty good shape, probably about 50 of them. He is a Hendrix freak so I will have to check out some of the vinyl that I believe people criticized as "robbing the grave" back in the day. He has a couple of Zappa, Atomic Rooster, McKendree Spring, Savoy Brown, much of it stuff I didn't have. Most of it in decent condition but hey, I have the SweetVinyl box so I am immunized against pops and clicks.
But it reminded me of how I was someone who, when at a party in the 70's or 80's, would mosey over to a person's record collection just to check things out. But as an audio snob with impeccable taste
I would secretly judge a person's musical sensibilities and taste. Bet I'm not the only one on AudioCircle guilty of the same!
