Vinyl albums I’ve neglected or forgotten

    Retirement a couple of years ago and the recent purchase of an RCM is at last giving me the chance to listen to the hundreds of vinyl albums I bought between the mid 70’s up and mid ‘90s and nearly all in very good/excellent condition now after a few sessions on my Project RCM.
    I’ve cleaned over 100 so far and I’ve had great fun listening to some albums I honestly don’t recall listening to for 30 years or so, especially the ones from the 1980’s such as XTC Black Sea, New Order Movement, Neil Young Freedom, Blue Oyster Cult Cultosaurus Erectus, The Comsat Angels Fiction, John Martyn Piece by Piece, Van Morrison Common One, Miles Davis Tutu, The The Infected, Leonard Cohen I’m Your Man, I could go on and on.
    Probably spent too much time listening to my CD’s, perhaps too often just due to time and convenience, since the mid 1990’s.
    Not sure what I’m trying to say, but when we have large music collections it’s all too easy to forget all the brilliant albums, especially on vinyl, we’ve owned and played to death back in the day.
    It’s been a great time of rediscovery over the last month or so, and has brought back some wonderful memories of times past. Only about another 600 to clean and many more treasures to enjoy one again!

    I must be slightly older than you. My 'musical awakening' section contains about 50 albums dating from 1968-1972. In some cases they are my original copies but getting a bit tired now having been played on a Dansette back in the day in my bedroom.

    If you haven’t really used your TT either since the mid 90’s, think of the fun you can have upgrading that as well, welcome back to vinyl;)

    I have at least 7 linear metres of LPs, an RCM, dedicated phono stage and SME 20 but I rarely listen to vinyl these days...

    Roon allows me to listen to more music with less faff :)

    It's all about "the faff" :)

    Makes it for me

    I have rediscovered loads of my CD collection while loading up a Zen Mini.

    ^^^^ I hate cd cases but quite like the cardboard ones new stuff comes in. That has caused me to dig around in the long discarded pile and find some gems… bought 40 card covers to rehouse.

    With melco server I try to only play albums under a single letter for two days then go to next letter and so on.
    Helps me stop choosing old faves again and again.

    I did this a while ago when I purchased an Okki Nokki. I started with old favourites but then working through my collection alphabetically. I also took the opportunity to catalogue them as I cleaned them.

    I also catalogued my CDs.

    The process is complete now, bar a few new purchases which are sitting in the "to be cleaned" pile.

    I now have no excuse for accidentally buying duplicates (something I guess that we've all done).

    I rediscovered many gems and a few less good which are earmarked to free up some space in my racks as I seem to have reached over 95% capacity.
