    Default my vinyl collection

    i started buying records in 1985...been dj'ing almost as long (started in 86), and recently built some shelving in my basement to hold my collection...mind you, ive gotten rid of a bunch of stuff over the years as well as had stuff stolen / borrowed and never given back....but anyhow...here it is...each shelving unit is 4 feet wide.

    I hope that's organized. I assume either alphabetical or chronological?

    At a gig I love flipping through vinyl sleeves, as the covers end up meaning more to me (relating to the song) than the aritst/title ever could. But it's a huge PITA to try and organize records like that at home.

    Still……kind of gorgeous. Every time I think about it, I regret not buying more vinyl………except when I think about organizing it.

    hahahahah you are joking right? I don't know about the OP but I gave up trying to organize my vinyl systematically like that long ago. On my shelves records are loosely organized in terms of genre but even that is difficult given how tenuous some of the lines between genres are. Alphabetizing within those categories would be a nightmare.... As you say, the covers end up meaning more than the artist or title; I have tons of records I love playing but don't remember who or what they are except for the cover.

    Yeah……I just can't imagine my haphazard autobiographical orginization working well for a collection much larger than the one I have.
