vinyl collector for over 30 years. played guitar in a few bar/nightclub bands for many years. i will be attempting to put my entire collection on discogs over time , uh not to sell of course! but i am selling some duplicates , etc. i have an over 6000 pc. music collection: 98% vinyl, around 300 cds, and a couple hundred music dvds. the vinyl consists of over 3000 rock (mostly), over 2000 classical and opera vinyl, and jazz and country, folk etc. i have also noticed how sketchy the classical and opera area is on discogs and i probably have numerous ( i'm thinking in the hundreds) of future submissions there.

here is a link to my collection : please give it time to load

the first pic is of the rock, pop, jazz, country etc. lps 4,330 all in Discogs. they are as you can see perpendicular to the wall, maple bookshelves back to back w/an aisle for access in between the two columns. the second pic (click previous pic. sorry about the glare , quality, these shelves block out the natural light in the livingroom) is all classical and opera, roughly half on discogs (maybe i'll get around to putting it all on someday, but most of these aren't yet submitted). all in all, over 6,000 lps in an area 12x16 . there's a 60 inch tv behind the rock lp shelves. they are categorized w/dividers: genre, artist, just like at the record store, you know: a's, artists i have a lot of say, Aerosmith, get their own divider, artists w/less titles go into the a's and so on.
