Profile

Started buying music in the mid 70s, mainstream and classical. Collector of mainly albums, with only a few singles bought many years ago. Since upgrading my hi-fi, buying more vinyl including many audiophile pressings. Discovering 50s and 60s jazz. Amazed how good they sound, especially Music Matters releases. The SRX versions sold out so fast and are very expensive. Luckily so many great vinyl Jazz series like Tone Poets and Acoustic Sounds Series.

Enjoy cataloguing my collection - in spreadsheets, Collectorz and since beginning of 2016 in Discogs. With about 1500 mainly CDs still to check, surprised by how many releases are not in Discogs, or have only basic information. Not making much headway due to ongoing purchases and Discogs' updates to my collection. Adding and updating them will keep me busy once checking is complete.

Not selling anything and do not use Discogs to buy. And don't ask for a digital copy

Wish they would stop using PVC covers on the vinyl releases as they can cause damage to your collection. I always remove and replace with other outer sleeves before placing with other records and keep them elsewhere.
