Welcome Licorice Pizza (LP) lovers! Setup guides and Vinyl FAQ.

Recent finds: 1,300+ Jazz, Soul, Funk, Pscych, etc... LPs.

About four weeks ago, I was in a Wyoming antique shop, digging through stacks of LPs. Another fellow had stopped in to join the owner for a cigarette and coffee. He saw me digging and struck up a conversation about records, vintage audio gear, etc... Also mentioned that he had "1,400 Jazz records" that he had no interest in keeping or listening to. So we exchanged phone numbers and week later I called to arrange a visit to his place, 100 miles from where I live. Knowing of his keen interest in vintage gear and having mentioned speakers in particular and "swapping", I loaded a very large pair of speakers in my truck and made the drive. The speakers were exactly the sort of thing he was looking for. The LPs were in 17 boxes sitting on the floor in his music room/man cave. I spent about ten minutes looking at a few dozen LPs pulled at random out of three boxes. I saw a lot of 50s/60s Jazz LPs and virtually everything was very clean, VG+ to NM vinyl. My gut told me that it would be a great score, with many rarities and 'gems' to be found. We maded a quick and easy deal, me trading the speakers and cash for the LPs.

On my return home six hours later, I set up temporary benches in my shop building and did a rough sort Jazz A-Z and everything else A-Z. At this point, I've cleaned about 450 LPs on my RCM and placed into new poly inner and outer sleeves. There was about 75% Jazz, 15% Soul/Funk and 10% everything else. Here's a few still photos of first-time spin of a few records and I'll include a link to a YouTube video I posted. Note that it's a long video at 86 minutes but will be of interest to fellow crate diggers and music lovers.
