I've been on amazon today and noticed that Vinyl is quite reasonable in price and in availability so I'm thinking of starting to collect a proper set of records. I'm a real 70's rock freak so have always been slightly curious to hear how those album's would sound on Vinyl.

Anyone got any advice on collecting Vinyl as I'm an total novice when it comes to finding the stuff and working bargains?

Buy the music you like, play it, keep doing it for 35 years, there, you have collected vinyl.

I've always found that vinyl's generally a bit cheaper on eBay than on Amazon

Charity Shops and Market Stalls have always been great fro me plus Relatives slimming down their own Vinyl Collection and eBay etc plenty of places just always check that the disc has no scratches or serious damage if at all possible

There are a few second hand record shops still around but you will need google to help you find them. Charity shops are the normally the best place to get records.

Oh and BTW, I was buying the latest version of War of the Worlds, the new version available on Vinyl which was a surprise but it's TWICE THE PRICE of the CD.

I think if 70s rock is your thing you might be better off getting the originals via eBay. You can get some bargains, though the condition can be a bit hit and miss.

The real plus is that you will get records produced totally in the analogue domain. The vast majority of modern reissues use a digital source which means you'd be better off getting the CD, particularly if you have a decent CD player with good quality digital to analogue converters.

I've a fair-sized collection of vinyl having started with that format and still buying certain bits and pieces on it. Contemporary vinyl releases are horribly expensive. You can easily spend six or eight quid on a 7" and a tenner on a 12". I do it for certain releases but I certainly resent those sort of prices.
