    Seeing as how Mach Spitz's Facebook alias is GUY Bowler and his hip hop crew is BEEF CHIEFS, I think the best way to BEEF up your collection would be to start with THAT guy and his mindmelting last album.

    Appetite is so great on vinyl… too bad he didn't find an original cover art version.

    FYI that Genesis is Trick of the Tail, the first album that Phil Collins sang on, not Gabriel.

    Most of the stuff is nothing rare, but the original Zeppelin, Stones and Beatles stuff would be more than $100 combined these days in any used record store. It's so weird that a near mint condition vinyl copy of any of the first four Zeppelin albums are now $25 records. Especially that when you consider 10 years ago the most they would get is $7 or $8 each.

    … i shoot for the "never heard of them", or 12 EP's. Last year i was given a large collection of records and turntable the owner had no use for. The lot consisted of many KISS albums and a very nice WHO picture disc, a 1967 interview.
