A boring post about records I picked up this weekend

Postby caseyjames on Sun Apr 03, 2005 8:15 pm

I had a free Saturday and an extra $100 burning a hole in mypocket so I hit up two flea markets, a record store, and an all-purpose consignment store. Here is what I walked away with:

Rolling Stones-Beggar's Banquet
Arlo Guthrie-Alice's Restuarant
Grateful Dead-Workingman's Dead
Elton John-Tumbleweed Connection
Graham Nash-Wild Tales
Randy Newman-Trouble in Paradise
Yes-Fragile
Carole King-Writer
Led Zeppelin-IV
Monty Python's Flying Circus
Paul Butterfield Blues Band-Golden Butter
Joe Cocker-s/t
Van Morrison-Tupelo Honey
Eric Clapton-At His Best
Buffalo Springfield-Again
Animals-Best Of
Sonic Youth-Daydream Nation
U2-Achtung Baby
It's a Beautiful Day-marrying Maiden
Joni Mitchell-Ladies of the Canyon
Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper, and Stephen Stills-Super Session
Tommy James & the Shondells-Crimson and Clover
Traffic-s/t
JJ Cale-Really
Taj Mahal-s/t
Jefferson Airplane-Bless It's Pointed Little Head
Jimi Hendrix Experience-Are You Experienced?
Bob Dylan-Blonde On Blonde

All are in great shape. I've cleaned about half of them and listened to about half of those.

Sometimes I get lucky; most of the time I do not.

I just got into buying vinyl late last summer and I have amassed something like 200 lps since then. They are mostly all mid-late 60s/early 70's pysche, folk, rock, soul. I do have some newer bands too. It's a fun and rewarding hobby. I think that I'm lucky in that I don't live in a big city so the competition to find vinyl is relatively non-existant.

Keep looking for kewl stuff. Finding a good turntable that actually works is getting harder and harder to do. Just hope all thoes records you bought arent all beat on. sometimes 40+ year old albums have been pretty well manhandled so you got to look carefully. I dont mind paying top dollar for a old record if its in good shape. If its all scratched up and hammered on , you got yourself a new frizbee.

Oh, they are all in very good condition; I don't buy anything if it looks beat on.

Ebay is a really great place to get records at a good price.

I hear horror story after horror story about buying used records on eBay. I've done it a few times in the past and have been lucky, but I hear lots of people complain about misgrading. And then you have to pay s/h. I prefer to see the record before I buy it. A real good online set for records is http://www.gemm.com The people that sell here tend to know how to grade and grade appropriately.

I usually hit the used/ collector stores in the area. If im going to spend some real money for records, i want to look at, and actually see what im buying rather then send some money in the mail, get the album and find its nothing like it was described in a online ad.

I did just get totally lucky on ebay buying albums....My idea of mint can be different then other peoples. But i just found the original Magazine album from Heart, with the contract dispute with Mushroom records printed on the back. I have also bought some Ike and Tina Turner and some Yardbirds albums. The Rolling Stones " Their Satanic Majestries Request " album I bought on ebay was trashed and looked and played like it had been through WW3. The guy said since it was sold as is, its mine. I Got to be more careful next time.
