vinyl storage question... I'm hoping to build some very shallow shelves for displaying records in my living room. Would having records in the sleeve at a very shallow angle like this be damaging to them? I figured I'd rotate out what's on the wall every month or two just based on what's in heavy rotation.

this is more or less what I have in mind:

Only problem you'll have is maybe some dust on/in the jacket

the correct vinyl storage method is vertically, in an underground bunker, away from the damaging effects of ultraviolet light, dust and disgusting human skin oils.

:laughing: will happily take that two hearts beat as one single off your hands. I saw them perform 2 hearts live in NYC a few years ago, they've only performed in a handful of times since '89.

I will send it your way if you wanna pay the shipping (US only). Little dirty but plays fine. Cover seams are all unglued and edges are rough.

It seems to be this version...

but with the french cover. Dunno.

Of course. I will see if any of my DJ friends want them and if not I'll post them here. They really aren't anything good... Crappy synth pop and 80's disco. Most of it is $1 bin fodder. There might be a little gem or two in there but that will just go for paying for the hours of my life I can't get back listening to some of this stuff.

Got my monthly VMP box and MrSargent's 45's today. Pictures later but it's a pretty big haul. VMP forgot to send me Black Sabbath's Paranoid though.

It never stops.



Went to a Devo video retrospective tonight with a Jerry Casale Q&A afterward. Lots of good rambly anecdotes about label execs, Jermaine Jackson, cocaine and fist fights.

Glad they arrived! Hope you enjoy them. Share your VMP haul when you get a chance.

My Numark TT1600 turntable has a straight tonearm and I've been meaning to get an angled headshell for it. I'm only seeing a couple of options on Amazon, but I wanted to see if anyone had a specific recommendation. Otherwise I'll probably get this Audio Technica headshell that claims to be universal.

ahh, good to know... nah, I'm going to make them myself out of Walnut so they match the rest of my furniture and are purty. Just wanted to make sure it isn't bad for the vinyl, the bulk of my collection will live in a media credenza I built recently.

I felt compelled to buy it since I will probably never see it for sale again.

I also bought these but that is less exciting.

Yeah a little bit ... it was $175, which is the most I've ever paid for a record by at least $50. This one has the yellow labels, so based on discogs I got a good deal.
