Record Store Day 2011 and unashamed vinyl sniffing
Inspired by Record Store Day and John Doran's elegant defense of good old fashioned rekkids: a choice selection from my own crates. Some of these were inherited (albums I was weaned on), some were paid for (as in a physical cash transaction - no clicking/shipping involved), and some were presents. I remember the story of each one and all of them are dear to me, for different reasons.
