" any instagram vinyl collectors here?/diggin'?"


  

          

mine's bldngblck
check me out
i post to enlighten, not to brag
drums, samples, weird shit, whatever
i see ascension and monotone on there
i really just want to talk old records, these current hip hop
artists ain't doin' it for me no more

diggin

i didn't know ramp only came out as promo and wasn't officially released until the 90s
i just scored my first copy and an og at that!
any good finds and digs on your end?
i dig alot. a little bit less now that my work schedule has changed. i used to could spend the days diggin', son in tow, and hit work in the evenings. now, i got maybe two days out the week to hit spots, so most of my diggin' is online. ebay, discogs.
i got into discogs heavily about october of last year, and haven't been able to stop. it's some good deals to be found. i check them daily, even if just getting information or fact checking.
i just got into ebay a few months ago. it's pretty cool as far as the prices. a little cheaper than discogs if you bid right and catch the right seller at the right time.

i dig alot here in southern california. i think it's a buyer's market. it's so many record stores and sources of vinyl, you can easily say yay or nay to something and find it cheaper elsewhere if the seller wants too much.
whats the finds like in your town?

life always offers you a 2nd chance...it's called tomorrow. use it wisely

Here's a link to make it easier https://instagram.com/bldngblck/

I'm pretty amateur still when it comes to knowledge. I kind of stopped digging for a while because I was finding myself always walking in the store, dropping $100 on records and then only listening to them once and never again. I also feel like a lot of my local spots are just charging too much now for it to be fun. Like the cheapest thing is $7 and it's some bullshit. I've been getting the bug again recently though.

Yeah I feel you. When I first moved to la, i was diggin heavy in the chi. When I got here I just lost the bug. I hadn't dug in like 16 years. Just last year I caught the bug again, and my la collection rivals the collection I left back in the chi! I'm a dollar bin fiend myself, but i will pay for something if I really want it, and it's dope

I don't post a ton, but 95% of my photos are record/music-related.

I finally got RAMP as well, about a month ago at Cosmos Records in Toronto. They're a great follow on Instragram, by the way, and their stores up there are INSANE. Very well-curated and the guys know a ton of shit. Aki basically had the entire 95 Wall of Fame sitting in a couple crates behind the counter. I had to get that RAMP - $70, still in shrink. Incredible album, far from a one-tracker, IMO. The foreign and private records on the wall were fucking out of control. Heavy, heavy stuff.

Nashville digging sucks now. I still hit spots almost daily, but that's just because I'm on summer break. Every Thursday the main shop puts out about 500 $1 45s - I can usually find a little gold there if I'm waiting by the door when they open.

https://instagram.com/onemillionthree. i don't post much at all but I'm always getting info on there

i follow you, ascension and bowls ha

got back in record buying 2 years ago when I shipped all my records from LA to Philly

i'm looking for that RAMP too. I had a reissue years ago that I sold

I feel you on cali diggin. I follow alot of LA heads on IG and it seems there's a ton of shit out there

I'm in south jersey
I mainly hit up philly and nyc for diggin. NYC is expensive but they have good selections, philly got some dope spots. NJ has a few but there's a bunch of places out here I've yet to visit, especially north jersey. One of my favs is Jupiter Records in Delaware. I just picked up about 300 45's for free last week and I'm about to head there now

Instagram has definitely put me up on a bunch of stuff. Recently many times I would remember a record someone posted that I would not have known about with out it.

You're right about Philly. I was up there last summer DJing at Little Big Things and we definitely came up on a few records. In the one hour we spent at Beautiful World, the guy bought someone's collection out of their trunk and let us have first stab at it. Nothing crazy, but nice, cheap copies of the Fatback Band's whole run on Perception, Dizzy Gillespie - The Real Thing, Ramon Morris, etc. Philly seems to be a great place to grab the classics that just don't turn up in the south as much. A couple of the homies there have the suuuuuuuuper deep crates….inspiring collections.

This store, 2nd & Charles, has a used vinyl section. For a while, they had the 45's for $.50/each. The few clearance 12"'s I got were mostly scratched to all hell.

Surprisingly, I've found a lot of records there that I've been looking for for a long time. One time I had been trying to find an OG copy of Supafly forever, and they had like 3 copies.

Lots of guitar nerdery and cat pics on my account.

RE: RAMP
It literally took a decade for that album to click for me. I initially thought, "Oh this has 'Daylight' and a bunch of junk" but I kept the record, maybe because of the prestige of such a thing, I don't know. Then I was having terrible insomnia about a year and half ago and I kept putting that album on at like 1 or 2 am and it just sounded perfect. Now I consider it one of the best r+b records ever.

I look hopefully every time thinking I might find some gems but I swear to god its this every time:

Christmas Albums
Herb Alpert
The Kingston Trio
*repeat*

One time I bought a Kingston Trio album thinking it could be like an old white reggae band or something. SMH.

I thought it might just be the overwhelming number of country white people in my particular area though.

Here's my IG if you want, I haven't been posting much record stuff lately though https://instagram.com/rschleg/

But you may find good common stuff for cheap. I picked up the good part of Carole King's catalogue in thrift stores. If you're looking for beats, yeah look elsewhere. But if you just want to fill up on some essentials for cheap, it's a good way to go.

And the Kingston Trio has some good stuff.

You find the one you have then click "Add to Collection" and you're done. Now, if you have something that's not on there, THEN you would have to add it manually.

In response to Reply # 21


          

As a father of two with little spare time, the sheer convenience of sites like discogs and ebay has led to less digging which is sad becauseit used to be one of my biggest hobbies but I just don't have the energy anymore; earlier, I could wade through dozens of crates on fleamarkets and shit but now, I just lose the energy completely after wading through a dozen of records by swedish 70's entertainment orchestras and Baccara/Boney M; it's a shame...

Yeah I still dig but only on rare occasions and when I have a few dollars to spend, but I've always been the cheap digger, if it's under $5 then I'll cop but lately I've just kind of stopped buying rock & jazz albums and now dig for dance and 80's to 90's 12inches, and disco albums now.

I wanted to sign up to instagram but never got into it though, I still hate using twitter, I'll just stick to tumblr which I can post the audio instead of just pics.

Most the people who are on tumblr usually re-post thier graminsta vids on their one kat plays rare used sampled material but hides the names, don't get it though cause if you show a picture of the album cover I'm gonna find out who the artist is eventually (if I don't know or own it already).

I might join (my phone is 2nd hand old, my camera is bad with pics indoors, but I got a tablet never tried to take pics maybe that what I will use), I got soooo much vinyl that I've bought but haven't listened to yet.
