My mate marvels at when I pull an LP off the shelf and I begin tell of tales of the hunt, treasures unearthed, the disappointments, the close calls, the people met and the places found/visited in my pursuit for that LP. I know of what you speak. One day I will be doing as you and parting with my many memories and sounds. They have been a much valued treasure.
Thank you for sharing and all the best!

you have what about 20K records? you can really recall that many memories? I have trouble remembering when i went to the bathroom last, or had what for breakfast.
True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.
quote by Kurt Vonnegut
...only the ones I remember. I confess that I'm a little OCD when it comes to vinyl. No, I do not have that many LPs and I have major purging to do.
Hot damn- your memory must be a whole lot better than mine. I often go through my collection and find albums I didn't know I had...and have no idea of how they got there. Even worse, I occasionally buy records I already have.
...and then there are records I remember buying but I have NO idea of where they are any more.
My collection has reached the size where I sometimes will purchased used records that I already own. Time to get more organized about it some day ...
I remember the provenance of a few of my records but none of the older purchases (70s & 80s) and none of the online purchases. It's not really a memory thing, there just wasn't anything special to remember about the act.
A large portion of my LP purchases were through house/yard/street sales. Living in a city where there are some 3 dozen plus colleges and universities has given me opportunity to meet and experience people and music with no bounds. Some of these people have become friends and their LPs part of my collection. Many of my acquisitions are memorable for more than just the vinyl.
