One thing I have noticed is that the artwork in the modern releases expands more with vinyl which makes me sway more towards it for albums that I adore.

I bought Florence and the machine’s album ‘ceremonials’ and ‘beneath the eeyrie’ by Pixies on vinyl and love that they’ve made the whole of the inside a beautiful art extension of the album. Something that wasn’t done even with the CD.

It’s just nice to see something old resurfacing through the wave of computer noise we currently have in the charts at the moment. 😂

I got mine on a Facebook buy and sell group for free. There’s a lot of people giving them away if you do a little digging. I too am frugal AF when it comes to spending money.

actually, that’s brilliant. I’ve only ever seen either really expensive or really cheap kind of bad looking ones. ill keep it in mind for when I’ve actually got space, as well as money x

Definitely make this thread about the artwork also. I would love to see the artwork on those albums Missy. I will change the OP to add this.

I bought a record player dirt cheap, I can't remember where, I couldn't afford anything fancy.

Magdalena said:I've always loved music since I was a child and was wondering how many of you still have old vinyl records. I have a collection of them from my younger years.
Please share here if you have any. I will start with My Roxy Music collection.

Also share any album cover artwork that's out there.

Roxy Music "For Your Pleasure" was an album released in 1973. It was the second album for Roxy music. I bought mine in the early 80's.

"Country Life" was their 4th album, released in 1974. I also bought that one in the early 80's.

"Siren was their 5th album released in 1975, again, I bought it in the early 80's.

"Flesh and Blood" was their 7th album, bought early 80's.

"Avalon" was their 8th and final studio album, released in 1982 and the last album of theirs I purchased.


My boyfriend and I were hooked on Roxy Music, but sadly he passed away in 1981, I bought Avalon and never felt the desire to buy any more after that. I carried on playing them for a few years and the pain I felt back then has now gone and is only filled with fond memories.

I'm sorry about your boyfriend. Avalon was my favorite song by them followed by Slave to love. Great group.

Magdalena said:David Bowie "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" was Bowies 5th studio album, released in 1972. I think I purchased it in the late 70's.

"The best of Bowie" released in 1980, I think I bought it not long after it's release.


Bowie was great and ahead of his time. I think he was influenced by Lou Reed.
