Vinyl was never and will never be a "thing of the past". It lives on.

I am an avid collector of records and just last week scored some great shit. $3 for the double LP masterpiece Uriah Heep Live 1973! With a little cleaning using my homemade record cleaning method of isopropyl alcohol mixed with distilled water and fiber towels for drying, these records sound great.

What a coincidence. That's the same method I use to clean my meth pipes.

Have you tried a VPI 16.5 machine? Reasonably priced at ~$600. I love mine.

I would imagine IPA and distilled water are better cleaners than the MoFi and VPI cleaners (mild detergents and distilled water). They don't want flammable liquids in close proximity to a vacuum motor.

Viny lives.

There's a well made "new" magazine over here, that's dealing with vinyl records.

Mr. Music: Highest banking U.S. singles
Jerry Osborne, Special to the Courier & Press Published 7:00 p.m. CT Jan. 3, 2018


DEAR JERRY: You have listed auction and sales results of the most collectible records by amounts fetched, but never by label. Can you name some U.S. singles getting the most money in record auctions for each label?
--Kirk Robertson, Jacksonville, Fla.


DEAR KIRK: For this intriguing project, we'll list the labels alphabetically, with selection number, rounded amount realized, title (with notes when needed), artist, and year of issue.

The minimum amount for this purpose is $500, and that's why some of the more common labels are not included. The collectibles market is ever changing, so sales reflected here may vary from past or future results.
