Have you been playing records for long?
I don't have any records. That was just a cool photo that I found online. lol
I wouldn't mind a nice record player though. Then, I would have to start a record collection and so on. lol

That's a deep hole to fall in. I'd avoid it if you can:ROFLMAO:
A "nice" record player starts around $1200 or so (Mine was $1700 and isn't considered a high tier record player by any means). Then the records are a whole other story. 70-80s metal can be expensive if you're looking for the real good pressings, most rock/metal records were used for rolling trays and coasters back in the day, so the Mint and Near Mint stuff is hard to come by. If you just go buy a new pressing, then you may as well just buy CDs or use MP3s. Most new records are just digital files, cut into a record. Not a single analog piece to most of them anymore. A trained ear can definitely hear it. The sound is just all squashed and compressed compared to a AAA pressing (Analog recording Analog mixing, and Analog mastering)
90s Metal is $$$$$. They are all pretty rare, as hardly any were pressed. In the 90s everyone was buying CDs.

Yeah,.....I'm staying clear of the rabbit hole for sure.
If I got the originals, I wouldn't play them, just collect them. Second pressings, I wouldn't be as fussy about and would play them.

How many records do you have?

I have somewhere between 1300-1400. It's always changing.

I keep them all catalogged on Discogs

My son sent this to me and asked if it was another thing old guys would not think is as good as it was. Really a good question and I responded that I felt like it was 1986 again. Really loved this band and love the continuation. Steve was a legend, but this is the best new thing in a while.

I stumbled across this while putting together a playlist for the 4th of July BBQ.

This makes me want to go fight the Commies. :cool:
