More a casual collector/buyer than anything, I'm fond of classical (especially 20th century American, British, and French composers), big band, jazz, folk, historically interesting, and rock LPs. I've been picking up things just because they sound interesting to me, learning a lot about old vinyl but I'm a long way from knowing anything that anyone else here doesn't already. Historian by training, amateur mineralogist when the mood takes me, mad bibliomane, and writer by avocation, always interested in meeting others similarly minded.
