Tell us about your record collection…

We would like to know about your collections, be it vinyl LP’s, 7″ or 12″ Single, Compact Disc Albums & Single or Cassette Albums & Singles.

If you are record collector, the chances are that not everyone understands your obsession. You’ve probably been asked dozens of questions about your collection that have been met with confused looks. It’s something collectors often come up against, but we are offering you the chance to tell the world about your collection in your own words, and to let everyone know why you are passionate about record collecting.

 

If you are interested in taking part in a short interview about what you collect, why you collect, when you started, and how big your collection is, we want to hear from you. You will be speaking to like-minded collectors who share the same love for music as you, and enjoy nothing more than discussing record collections. We will also require some good quality pictures of your collection that we may well feature on our blog

Take a look at what other people have said about their collections.

  2. My first record I bought was Hey Jude by the Beatles in 1968 after that I just had to get the rest of them so from that point on I’ve been collecting but now I have most of them apart from about 3 EPS but I do have about 3000 thousand CDs all mixed that is singles & about 3 to 400 CD albums and round about 200 hundred Vinyl LPs plus around 350 Vinyl Beatles LPs and still collecting demo & bootlegs I just like rock music.

  3. I have a David Bowie collection that I am thinking of selling. Understanding the amount of time it would take to catalog everything causes me to procrastinate making a complete list. Off the top of my head here are some items. Santa Monica CD in walnut case, brass plate #2 on box. “72 Santa Monica box set, 2 of them. one opened to view items the other still sealed. Other Santa Monica items. LE signed CD set in birch case w/silk screened glass window. Several AU20 CD’s some opened, some sealed. RCA CD’s. Fashion picture disc album. Many picture discs. CD boxed sets from Japan. Hero’s LP pressing plates and album pressed from those plates (serial numbers match) both framed together. Several Bowie autographs on LP’s and album covers. Many Bowie and Bowie’s musicians guitar picks. Concert posters. Young Americans LP autographed by John Lennon and Bowie. Many other Bowie items. Why am I thinking of selling them? Am getting older and need to start to downsize rather than having an estate for someone to deal with.
