Quite the collection!

https://www.discogs.com/user/mark.emsley/collection

just checked, i have only put 88 releases in my profile.
now that i have re-digitised most of the archive i may have to use the current downtime to add a few more.

mark e, Sunday, 29 March 2020 18:28 (five months ago) link

Hey thanks! xp

I try to keep up with it. Helps when you're good at forgetting what you just got as soon as you file it away.

https://www.discogs.com/user/ZZSS/collection

i got really bored a few years ago and added everything i had. then i merged my partner's collection as well, recently. now i don't buy so many records, so it's just a matter of entering in a couple news ones, every once in a while

Karl Malone, Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:00 (five months ago) link

Damn I'd wish I'd know those Topdown Dialectic LPs were such limited releases.

Evan, Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:03 (five months ago) link

yeah, topdown dialectic releases kind of remind me of being into grouper back in the day - she would only press like 500, but the releases were soooo good that you just had to get them. i have only been on top of the topdown game since vol 2, but i am ready to instantly scoop of whatever they release right now

Many added manually before I located the wonderful bar code scanner in the app. Very few CDs scanned so far. UK Garage and dubstep heavy.

Psychocandles (Pyschocandles), Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:12 (five months ago) link

That was almost still the case even with the latest Nivhek, then it seems there was a repress. I look at the sales history on here often and I wonder if that person that spent the "Max" amount of say $100 on a release that for the most part is pretty easy to find for $20-30 ever since whenever-that-was feels extra silly in hindsight. I've been caught up in the frenzy now and again (mostly on bandcamp), but I've only screwed myself out of saving like $20 at most in the long run.

Evan, Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:14 (five months ago) link

ehhh there’s so many hundred dollar records from the past few years that I want, I’ve just given up

brimstead, Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:23 (five months ago) link

Wow Pyschocandles some of those 12"s must be rare and/or pretty sought after. What are your favorites?

Evan, Monday, 30 March 2020 00:29 (five months ago) link

Didn't know about the bar code scanner, thanks for the tip.

I pretty much only buy used vinyl, so my collection basically only covers up to 1991 or so:

enochroot, Monday, 30 March 2020 00:46 (five months ago) link

The Ghost, Tempa, Big Apple, DMZ nexus was great to hear unfold at the time. The sound morphed from release to release in fascinating ways. Some of those tracks, even the simpler ones have definitely stood the test of time for me. El-B 'Give a Little Love', Touchdown 'Baby Love', El-B 'Never Say Never' Brandy flip. Those rimshots ;)

― Evan, Monday, March 30, 2020 8:37 AM

Thanks! Definitely order/visit Commend everytime I'm in the city, and always peep what they post! I also work/moonlight at a shop called Luna Music (www.lunamusic.net) in Indianapolis – we have a comparable "left-field" section, and my coworkers are on that wavelength.

If you like the Duster boxset...new Duster falls right in line. Remarkably similar!

I've slowed down buying recently and have whittled it down a bit (so it mostly still fits on this old Ikea Expedit), here you go: https://www.discogs.com/user/stadtwerker/collection

Not to BRAG (incoming brag) but I got in on Duster before it became a cult hit. Nabbed Stratosphere back when it was a $10-15 LP via mailorder (can't remember if I got it somewhere dull like Amazon or something about 10+ years ago). But yeah kept putting off checking out the new one. Saw them live a handful of times in recent years ramping up to this release too.

Luna is associated with Tobin Sprout right? I asked him where I could get Let's Welcome The Circus People and he said ask the Luna shop. They got back to me many months ago and said they were putting one on sale for $85. Since that's $40 more than I was hoping to spend I declined and sure enough it's still sitting there in the discogs marketplace today.

I used to manage a store in NJ but rarely would my co-workers be on my wavelength, sounds like I'd have fit in better over there with you guys!

Huh I guess I slept on that Bedhead live album when it came out.

Evan, Monday, 30 March 2020 19:17 (five months ago) link

The Bedhead reecord is pretty good. Based off this it seems like they translated their live sound to the studio quite well.

xpost to Neil S- thanks a bunch. they're laborious but fun to write and it adds something to the shop, I believe.

haven't logged a lot on discogs but I'm a very active buyer. that old fave artists list needs updating and the wantslist is mostly outdated too. I logged a lot more on RYM where my user name is corcomroe.

Paul, Monday, 30 March 2020 21:48 (five months ago) link

the wantlist feature sends me daily emails about the same LP, every single day

Karl Malone, Monday, 30 March 2020 22:50 (five months ago) link

it's the worst... like, I have 500+ items on this thing (most of which I just use because I don't want to forget to investigate them) but it sends me notices for the same 5 records from the same 10 sellers day after day.

justice 4 CCR (Sparkle Motion), Monday, 30 March 2020 23:05 (five months ago) link

I switched off the wantlist notification emails - I think maybe some sellers re-list their stock regularly to get peoples attention.

I deleted everything out of my wantlist having realised there was stuff that had been in there for ages, was inexpensive but I hadn’t bothered getting.

michaellambert, Monday, 30 March 2020 23:13 (five months ago) link

xp yeah I fucking take those out of my damn wantlist cuz I hate it so much, the re-listing trick. I wish you had a way to block sellers that do it.

PS if anyone has anything on my mostly ridiculous wantlist, I happily accept YSI options, mostly I just wanna hear them. it's been ruthlessly pared down to things that basically never get sold, so I never get emails.

akm, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 00:15 (five months ago) link

Here's my mess: https://www.discogs.com/user/dinkytown/collection.

Wanted to get collection insurance, so had a go at cataloging a couple years ago and got through maybe C in rock/etc. and one box of singles before bailing. I don't have the patience to put a bright bare bulb on and look at the runout grooves for Humble Pie's third album to see which plant it was pressed at.

Now I just occasionally enter a record while listening, which makes it all the more futile, if I ever want to have a go at the rest.

by the light of the burning Citroën, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 00:59 (five months ago) link

Thanks akm, do you have a collection profile too?

Evan, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 01:01 (five months ago) link

"I don't have the patience to put a bright bare bulb on and look at the runout grooves for Humble Pie's third album to see which plant it was pressed at."

Major label albums from the 60s-70s in particular are such a chore to correctly add for exactly this reason. Sometimes runout isn't even enough to narrow it down (or it feels that way).

Evan, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 01:09 (five months ago) link

exactly. 77 variants of a record that (even today) is only worth $4. but my OCD won't let me just pick a close-enough option.

Sleeve I checked your wantlist. I wish I had some of those Hurley rarities! And I wish I could help you out otherwise.

I wonder where anyone even finds cassettes NOT online... if a physical store even has cassettes they're common 80s titles or they're brand new indie titles. Never seen anything in between.

Wait, I lied I have some Swirlies cassettes I found in the wild. So besides that.

Evan, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 01:37 (five months ago) link

Oh wow I love it thank you for that tip! First thing I did was turn on the "everlasting collection" mode.

Evan, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 01:40 (five months ago) link

Yeah but normally it just goes in the list among the versions of the album, in this case next to the retail release version of MR-018.

Evan, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 22:08 (five months ago) link

OK so yes the year would be correct in that case.

I thought my most valuable record was:

Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs reissue of Dark Side of the Moon

but it could be my sealed Let it Be from 1970 with Korvette's $2.99 price tag going by the asking prices.

Evan, Wednesday, 1 April 2020 11:48 (five months ago) link

It's kind of hard to tell. First, it's sealed, so I don't know which version it is exactly. Second, sealed/mint copies listed up to $350, but not seeing that copies have sold that high. My guess is I might be able to get $100-$150?

Of course there are a couple copies on ebay between $200-$500 as well.

Ha, slow down- you have to add "1970" and sort by new to old, then pick the most recent sale(s) of copies that match yours.

Evan, Thursday, 2 April 2020 04:52 (five months ago) link

Beatles collectors can be insane

No kidding. I'm shocked to find out that the most (potentially) valuable record I own is this 1978 reissue of the White Album on white vinyl.
https://www.discogs.com/The-Beatles-The-Beatles/release/2024459

Elvis Telecom, Friday, 3 April 2020 01:30 (five months ago) link

to be fair:

"New lacquers were cut for this release."

and from the comments:

"The sound quality on this particular pressing is the very best you'll find, and in my estimation, better than the original UK stereo (I have both). It has a luminous quality that is really compelling."

so it's kind of like that reissue pressing of Bowie's Hunky Dory, where the stars all aligned properly w/r/t sound quality, I hate to sound like a Hot Stamper huckster but sometimes certain pressings really do shine

sleeve, Friday, 3 April 2020 01:50 (five months ago) link

I've never heard of that White Album on white vinyl. Ha!

Why, I would make a fantastic Nero! (PBKR), Friday, 3 April 2020 02:03 (five months ago) link

The weird thing is that I didn't know it was on white vinyl until after I bought it. Music Mart (RIP) in Costa Mesa just reshrinkwrapped a promo version and put it out on the floor.

Everything is relatively clear expect the part about how to add a version of a release rather than a standalone. Anyone have experience with this?

if you're having a hard time with any of that i'm happy to help / clarify

budo jeru, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:07 (five months ago) link

I sympathise. I was all ready to add the new Cowboy Junkies album but I got stuck on which format to use, since it's only available on streaming services, not as a CD or a download. A quick look at the discogs forum confirms that albums only released on streaming services are not eligible for inclusion, since it's not possible to "own" them. Which leaves the Cowboy Junkies discography on discogs sadly incomplete.

the grateful dead can dance (anagram), Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:11 (five months ago) link

you should just make bootleg CD-R versions of all the streaming-only stuff and then list them as placeholders until the band has the good sense to actually release their records, at which point some future nerd can merge those releases with yours

budo jeru, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:15 (five months ago) link

it’s not incomplete if they didn’t release it. streaming only is dumb.

brimstead, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:21 (five months ago) link

some future nerd will probably not enjoy having to delete some random homemade CD-R from the database

ravedeaf nineHEIN?seventyWHO? (Craig D.), Tuesday, 21 April 2020 23:13 (five months ago) link

Evan, Monday, 27 April 2020 14:25 (five months ago) link

I loved the Blue Notebooks when i came out, but I feel like it's been so completely subsumed into tv/movie soundtracks that there's no need to re-listen to it now... it's just kinda ambient in the culture at this point.

enochroot, Monday, 27 April 2020 14:35 (five months ago) link

Yeah I have a general aversion to music that specifically sounds like a doctor drama theme. That being said, where has Blue Notebooks shown up?

I don't use Discogs to log my collection, so here's my seller profile, sorted from priciest downwards.

The little engine that choogled (hardcore dilettante), Wednesday, 23 September 2020 01:22 (five days ago) link

sheesh, that's tough. I think Denki Groove's VOXXX may be it, that's a legitimately hard to find record from a group with basically zero presence in this country

from a personal standpoint maybe Datarock's Red? I saw them in 2009 and got right up front & the lead singer pulled me on up on stage for a couple tunes. bought the record and they all signed it. later got to party & smoke with them in some nightclub. unfortunately it doesn't play too well because my kids love it and have gotten fingerprints and scratches all over it
