The vinyl spin-all

Totally random thought as of today. I want Rage Against the Machine vinyl. I had the urge to listen to that in the car today, and it was amazing as it should be.

My 4 year old now has her first piece of vinyl. Took her to a Caspar Babypants gig on the weekend, and hit up the merch table for a record of his. Got it signed.

So yeah, hipster 4 year old for the win.

Niiiiiice. You should probably just get her The Presidents of the United States of America as a companion to that.

She's suuuper into the Beatles at the moment, thanks to the TV show "Beatbugs", so I'm considering taking her crate digging.

An adorable preschooler yelling "LUCY IN THE SKY" at the top of her lungs is pretty great.

Ha! Beatles vinyl was a tricky thing for a time. BUT, since they started reissuing everything on vinyl a few years back, you should be able to find old stuff for cheap now. I did buy the stereo reissue of Sergeant Pepper's, but that's the only one I got since I have the whole CD collection and just didn't want to go down the Beatles vinyl rabbit hole. I have a couple old Beatles vinyls, but they're not in good shape.

Having a brand new version of Sergeant Pepper's is so cool given that it's kinda the first album that opened my eyes to music and vinyl in general.

Hmm, I dunno, what are Quincy Jones' thoughts on the Beatles vinyl market?

Brando had sex with every record the Beatles put out.

Well that's hardly a revelation.

Great. Now I need to clean my White album.

good base record players worth looking at? I'll one day inherit my fathers collection of vinyl and players as well as his WHOLE 8 track collection....Complete with car players.

Anyway, would love to get into this at some point and looking at some quality base entry.

Is the Project Essential III Phono a good deal? It’s not cheap but it’s a good place to start if looking for new.

I found a Dual turntable used and had it fixed up, it’s great. Probably spent about the same amount of money in the end.

There are many budget suggestions I've made in the thread if you scroll back a few pages. I'm out of town and busy otherwise I'd go find and link them.

I've got the baseline Sony turntable, which is unsexy and if I heard something better I'd likely notice, but I have no complaints and I'm decently sensitive to sound.
