Attention Vinyl-gang!

On a couple of occasions some of the vinyl-fans around here have gathered in a thread in Misc. -and had a night of debauchery.

Obviously playing records is an indoor activity as vinyl tends to melt in direct sunlight. (don't do this at home; I've tried and ended up with a record that was so warped it was better suited for a ladies hat than for playing )

So, if a global community (i.e. T-BBS'ers that are vinyl fans) is to gather around listening to vinyl records, it has to be during spring or fall (respectively).

Anyone up for a "Vinyl Night" one of these days? -I suggest we meet up next Friday (unless there is a consensus on some other day) and talk about our music, have a few drinks, and play some vinyl.


You up for it?

Re: Attention Vinyl-gang!

do I understand you correctly that you mean a physical meeting? People actually gathering up around a record player?
Or were you rather thinking of a group chat or a thread here?

Re: Attention Vinyl-gang!

The previous meetings of the vinyl gang have been threads.

You sit in your own home listening to your own records and come to the thread to talk about... well, anything really.

Heh. That takes me back to the 60s when it seemed almost mandatory for cars to have two or three warped 45s on the rear deck under the back window. It was part of the standard equipment.

As for contemporary vinyl, the entire Beatles discography has been released on vinyl in a boxed set. I saw it down at Newbury Comics a few weeks, selling for-- I think-- about $450.

Beatles you say?... dunno about "contemporary" but I've had most of this for over thirty years and some of it came in a box:

Re: Attention Vinyl-gang!

ah there are a few familiar covers that grace my shelves as well =)
My uncle is a huge Beatles fan - he has every single song they ever published. Even some original (presumably bootleg-)recordings on tape. He kinda infected me.
If you ever come to London, go to Baker Street. Right next door (well, actually left) to the famous 221B is a Beatles shop where you can get everything from genuine autographs and photos to records and fanstuff.

Sure, but please don't wish the summer away, "Fall" as you insist upon calling it is not for another 3 weeks yet.

The Americanization of my language started the day I signed in here the first time. And in this particular case the spell-checker couldn't help as the word also has another meaning

Well, on the calendar, Fall is several weeks away-- unofficially, it begins after Labor Day, when school starts and the new Fall TV season begins. Although that seems to be changing of late.

Re: Attention Vinyl-gang!

Hmmm, there aren't that many songs about fall/autumn. Perhaps that's because not much rhymes to either?

I guess that means you get a longer Summer.

Re: Attention Vinyl-gang!

Looks quite like it. The sun is scorching today. Just went the 300 yds to my supermarket and back again and felt quite bowled over. The forecast says thunderstorms for teh weekend and showers for next week. The latter was to be expected, though: I have to sample 4 rivers and creeks on Wednesday and Thursday LOL.

As for our treasures on vinyl: today they played "My Friend The Witchdoctor" on the radio =) My parents have the record (it's actually a shellac disc, not a vinyl one). It was my favourite when I was 3. I wouldn't go to bed without hearing that record first I still like it a lot.
