    "It's all dollar bin chud and shitty 12"s (except I'm sure there's a Le Cop 12" in there somewhere...).

    We left behind about 10,000 Lps and a similar number of 45s and I guess, 5 months later, they are finally getting around to throwing them out. Of course there's probably something decent in there somewhere, but they were all combed through by a number of people first.

    Oh yeah, there's a thousands of classical records. some of which might be OK but it was way more than I was ever going to need."
    it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
    take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

      Haha, one man's chud is another man's treasure.

      A persistent legend in the record collecting world is the "We threw 5 copies of **** in the bin 3 years ago & now it's sold on ebay for ££££".

      I'd expect the worst but I'd have a look if I was passing

            I'd sure love the chance to swin around in a dumpster full of garbage for hours at the chance of finding 5 mediocre '90s dance 12"s.
            Or you're soft.

              There's a track I used on a past swap that I fished out of a bin, that's how I get down.

                That's a shame! I have spent many hours in Academy in Williamsburg, picked up a few good tunes too. 45s always seemed really cheap in there. Probably the best for 2nd hand vinyl in that neck of the woods, well last time I was over anyway.
                Classicals usually have nice lined inners, I could have done with a few hundred of them.
                Realistically, if you came across that dumpster in the street,what would you do? And how far would you take it? Could be a real life test for degrees of Collectoritis
                Everyone tear down your own little wall
                That keeps you from being a part of it all
                Because you've got to be one with the one and all
                You've just got to be close to it all
