Vinyl in the Southern Highland?


Recommended Posts

Hey all, 

 

I'm heading down to the Bowral/Mittagong/Moss Vale area for the long weekend and was wondering if anyone knew of any good places to look for vinyl?

Wow not being an expert on that area, but would say very low chance of finding anything
 

you could try Vinnies, Red Cross and any other similar.  But looking at google maps they still say temporarily closed

Its called the Nostalgia Factory -  perhaps not as full of vinyl as I imagined it was.   Its probably just a couple of boxes they've picked up from estate sales. There might have been another little shop behind it.  Wife hates me browsing records so I didnt have time to linger and check it out properly.

I will never forget the time I took my less favourite records to Vinnies.

The old bag who took the boxes from me at the counter started sifting through them and pulled out a Gladys Knight record and put it aside - presumably for herself.

I was telling a mate about it and he said yeah the only reason his mates wife volunteered was so she could take first pickings and sell the valuable stuff on ebay.

I suppose if you volunteer to help in St Vinnies you might feel entitled to some of the spoils , but donors have an expectation that ALL the stuff goes to charity.

Found some great records at a stall in Dirty Jane's in Bowral. Lovely couple that run it said there isn't really anywhere else in the highlands.

 

Paid $85 for a Black Sabbath - Paranoid in VG+/VG+ and I'm calling that a win.

      2014 vinyl release by Jack White 
       
      This "Ultra LP" release features several special features:

      · Tracks A6 and B7 are locked grooves featuring elements from their respective previous tracks. "High Ball Stepper" doesn't end with a faded-out distortion as in the digital versions, it is locked instead.
      · Tracks A7 and B8 are hidden tracks pressed on their sides' labels, and play at 78 RPM and 45 RPM respectively, thus making the LP a three speed record.
      · Side A's groove is inverted and plays from the inside out.
      · "Just One Drink" consists of two different intros, each in its own groove, with both connecting at the body of the song. BA1 is acoustic, BB1 is electric.
      · Side B has a matte finish, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record.
      · Vinyl is pressed in flat-edged format.
      · Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record.
      · Tracks B3 and B4 are swapped in comparison to the digital editions, and B2 features a slightly longer intro.
      · The vinyl was mastered entirely from analog sources with no additional compression used.

      So after finding myself in a music store with that old familiar joy of looking through vinyl albums I wanted to add a turntable to my setup. The Project X1  is what I was thinking I would dip my toe in with. 
       
      I have boxes of vinyl of classical from the old family home, but they are in average to poor condition. (but recordings I cannot get any more) So my question is:
       
      If I am playing both new and old vinyl records,  am I going to destroy the needle? What do others here do about their original and mint collection without killing a $300 needle?
       
      Thanks!
