  • Unusal sub-collections

    Alright...

    We're always trying to find new way to talk about our record collections... here's one I haven't seen before:

    Are there any categories of LP/single that you'll buy for reasons other than the music?

    For example, I've developed sub-collections of "embarassing celebrity" LPs (John Travolta, "Return of Bruno", Scott Baio etc).

    Also bad rap cash-ins (Wham Rap, Mel Brookes' Hitler Rap, etc).

    Plus some cheesecake cover art, and, just to balance things out, some cover art feature extraordinarily dorky looking men.

    So does anyone else find themselves in thrall to the urge even when you can't find any decent music?

    No, not at all.

    There's too much great music out there, to worry about cluttering up the collection with tat.

        To Be Or Not To Be b Mel Brooks is really good. As is Boogie In Your Butt by Eddie Murphy.

        I collect shit record sleeves, especially if they have a Grimsby connection.

          Yeah. A small collection of worthless rock records picked up at various times in the mistaken belief that they are collectable.

            I buy records for their covers from time to time. I like them as pieces of art.

                  I have a feeling I&#39;ve seen an album called &#39;Swing with Tony Jacklin&#39;, on which the V-necked one tackles the black-tie standards. . .

                      And arranged by a Mr Keith Mansfield, if I&#39;m not mistaken..
                      Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...

                        Actually some of Telly Savalas&#39; LPs have some good moments on them, mainly down to the presence of John Cacavas in the arranger&#39;s chair.

                        I&#39;m on a mission to get a complete run of Edward Woodward LPs, but I genuinely like them, so I&#39;m not sure whether they count in this thread.

                          I saw one of these in a charity today, though I left it there. And there the tale ends, as I can&#39;t remember anything else about it.
                          Don't call it a comeback... H, N, and the number 7.
                          Ok, it's a bit of a comeback, I suppose...
