Vintage Vinyl & Shellac, LP Covers, and Picture Sleeves


Sadly, like a lot of people born prior to the last quarter of the twentieth century, I sold off most of my record collection in the 1990s, not long after the compact disc became the standard currency of recorded music. Happily, I had enough good sense to hold onto a select few treasures; some that hadn't yet made it onto the new digital format at the time, some merely because I'd grown too attached to them to part ways. 
A couple of decades later, in part because of a wistful yearning for the look and feel of an album cover in my hands while a 12-inch vinyl disc rotated on a nearby turntable in the comfort of my home, I began re-buying a few lost gems now and then at flea markets, secondhand shops, and online auction sites. Along the way I also picked up some classics, as well as quirk-satisfying oddities, that I hadn't owned the first time around. 
When we moved my mother to an assisted living community a few years ago I adopted my parents' record collection (there was no room for their circa 1968 hi-fi console in her new apartment -- I now wish I'd adopted it, too), which included everything from Glen Campbell to Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass to the Lemon Pipers.
On display here is something of a cross-section of my collection as it exists today. There's no new 180 gram vinyl from the current LP renaissance. In fact, nothing you see here was released post-1989. All are first or early pressings in their original incarnations and, no less importantly, with their original covers. 
It's a mere shadow of the collection that once was . . . but after all, these things are still a bear to store.

Note: Vinyl snobs and purists needn't fret over the dreaded and potentially destructive ceramic cartridge seen in the photos. The Crosley is mainly for show (and transferring records to digital). My "good" -- and much more frequently used -- equipment is in the basement, a considerably less photogenic environment.
