Which is the most valuable record in your collection?Lawrence Welk 1963 Early HitsTell us about your turntable setupIt's funny, I have a portable Crosley turntable which is garbage. I don't have the space for a nice turntable setup. Most of my LPs have found a second home at my friends house where he looks after them for me and we have our regular evenings of music. But yes , I do own a 1952 Vintage Zenith record player which has an inbuilt amp and two wired speakers that can be setup 8 feet apart. Picked it up from a antique store somewhere in Maine, USA. It sounds beautiful even today, a bit rusty , but I like the old world charm to it. It was so freaking heavy that I couldn't bring it back with me to Mumbai. Now it waits for me at my sister in laws house in Chicago.
Any advice to people that are about to start their collection?Old is Gold. If you find some old records, which have been collecting dust and no longer have a home to, do pick them up. There's tons of treasure waiting to be discovered. I have discovered some good music by picking up used LPs for $1 stacked outside book and music libraries. My joy of listening to LPs is listening to the old albums which give that crackling warm sound before every track. When you buy an LP record, you are buying an experience to the art or listening, and you will be immersed into this world created by the musician/band. Don't be a casual listener, lend then your ear of attention for the entire duration of the album and disconnect from the world for the duration of the album play. The whole fun is to listen to the album in its entirety and flipping the record to change sides. Do this and you understand the joy of owning an LP record.
