    More cheese from me. I must say that the singles on the Sony CBS label are amazing presses. So quiet. I've never heard a record as silent as these before and after the tracks.

    The Beatles - Yesterday is an original 1965 Japanese EP. Plays at 33 1/3 speed but actually a 7" single. 4 tracks in total being Yesterday, Act Naturally, You Like Me Too Much and It's Only Love. Concidering the age it still sounds fantastic.

    I have some Beatles on VInyl, A free as a Bird 45, The White Album in Mono, and Past Masters. I have a few more things I want to pick up before I do my collection video.

    It was a recent reissue I think 2013ish, EMI remastered all the old albums AGAIN after the CD reissues in 2009. This time for vinyl reissues.

    Been a while!!! Here's my discogs, feel free to have a gander and rate/hate, it's almost everything except some stuff I bought today. Talking Heads - Remain in Light, a hardcore punk group names Voorhees's first LP and Pop Punk group Neck Deep's Rain in July/A History of Bad Decisions EP.

    Remain in Light is fantastic, I'd heard the odd track from the talking heads and heard pals bigging them up but this new wave thing aint too bad.

    Next up on my listening is a Shoegaze group called "My Bloody Valentine". My mam banged on about them for years and she saw them live years ago at the local uni (when we still had a music scene apparently) and one of my good friends and his girlfriend are nuts about them. I've a hunch it's a bit of a "sad bastard" album (that entire genre really I assume).

    And finally before I leave, one of the most frustrating things has been searching for a LP from the 90's/early 2000's, only to find it doesn't exist because vinyl hit an all time low and most groups didn't even bother pressing a limited amount, and then when stuff does get a re-issue (think massive LP's like Antichrist Superstar), it's either limited edition Picture Disk (no thanks, I value fidelity) or limited edition standard disk... that's so limited it costs a bomb with no mass repress in sight. At least Deja Entendu got a repressing so a copy doesn't run you $600 anymore.

    I've been too busy to make a video so here's a small taste of what I have on Vinyl as of now.

    Nice collection you've obtained there, GOH.
    Some cheese from me. Fans of the anime Project A-ko 2 should know this as it's the ending theme from what I remember.

    Picture discs look really cool but out of the ones I've listened to they all sound like crap. I guess it's the material used to make the record.

    That's what I've been told so I avoid them. Colored vinyl is fine.

    Okay finally going to post some pics of recent pick ups and include a shot of my collection crates as well as my turntable in my retro gaming setup. Use a good quality audio technica turntable which has nice balance and a solid needle. Got a lot of 80s in my collection and crate on top has 45's and soundtracks. Sorry for the filters and collages in most of the photos as I took them from my instagram and usually post my latest on there or stuff from my collection.

    I want your speakers. I have more goodies coming in in the next few days/2 weeks. Lot of Modern psychadellia and hip hop.

    I found 2 record players at garage sales.

    Fisher MT420 looks to be around a 1990s player, paid $10 and it works just really low sounding on my AVR.

    Magnavox 836 Record Player paid $1 and needs a new power cable put on it. otherwise untested. says 1975 on it
