I've been collecting vinyl for close to 30 years.
A lot of my stuff I bought between 20 and 30 years ago back when vinyl wasn't as popular as it's become, so a lot of the records I got then for 5 dollars give or take are now worth 5 to 10 times as much. Some of mine are still worth 5 bucks. Some of them are worth 200.
I recently really got back into it and focus on mostly garage rock from the 60s and garage revival from the 80s and later, but have a large collection of punk rock also (some of them are quite valuable nowadays with the influx of people from the scene in 80s getting older and driving the market) along with a lot of alternative and just straight rock and roll from the 1950s to the present.
I have a youtube channel I've been working on too with digitized stuff from my collection:
Eaglebauer's Record Collection
It's small so far because I've only been revamping it for a few weeks but I'm adding a lot to it every week and it's going to be a lot bigger in time.
That’s awesome, thanks for sharing your channel. How do you digitize them? And wow, those are quite obscure bands.
I don’t collect records, as I’m not much of a collector period. But if I were it would probably be LPs since, as you know, I’m an avid music listener, and I do enjoy the sound of vinyl as I think it is a much better sound, musically speaking.
But, then again, I didn’t realize how high in value they’ve gotten
, so maybe not.
