Think I'm done with greedy thrift stores & bland damaged records. Found a much better source for cheaper records and plenty of quality. Might decide to get rid of some, or not?

Hey man... PM me if you want to trade a stack of shit records for a stack of shit records. I've been working through a box of throw-away's, and I'm finding that there is a good number of them that I find no redeeming value in. It would be interesting to trade 10-20 shit records with someone else just for some fun free listening/discovery.

You’re literally so close we could just meet up. I might have about a dozen I’d swap, but I’m down to pay cash if you can get me a descent deal. We should make a beat too.

sorry for bumping an old thread, but this shit really is a bitch lol. It pisses me off that vinyl is becoming "trendy" again, and a bunch of dumb kids are buying piece of shit portable turntables that destroy their records. JUST TO BE COOL. not even ever hearing the term "analog" in their life lmfao.... anyways hipsters and trendy, poser kids can do whatever they want, no skin off my bones, it ain't about judging people. it's that they're fuckin up the economy of it all!!! lmfao. when i was younger, i used to be able to get records for TWENTY FIVE CENTS sometimes SHIT. now it's at least $2.

if you find a really good record shop (def gonna be independently owned) with a collector that actually puts effort and care into his collection, it's worth the extra cash. other than those tiny exceptions, the market is fucked and it's annoying as hell.

Sometimes when you’re poor, you’re poor. You tell yourself “I got only $20. Where will I get the most records in my local area for my cash?”. There’s a few good record shops in your area, but they’re out to milk you, because they got a business to run. So for the time being, you decided to try the thrift shops because you would hope records would be cheap. Well, most thrift shops are run by a local business that gives back to the local community. So those Records that pretty much your grandparents would listen to, were the ones that got donated. All the rock, pop, jazz, & hip hop you’d rather dig & find are slim pickings. So you dig through the bs and you pick 20 records you hope are a buck. The teller informs you “no, they’re $3 a record” (even though the cover looks like it got chewed on by rats. The thrift store doesn’t care, because they’re trying to make $ off of donations). So there went your $20. You walked out with 7, not 20. Have a nice day.

Now, if you haven’t ever been that broke when you wanted to dig, but didn’t have the budget to walk out like Dillah, or Dre, or Madlib, or your favorite producer that digs, then I guess you get anything you want because you’re the only child of your family. But if you had to spend your money on rent, bills, food, some girlfriend who plays you like a fiddle, etc, etc, and that $20 was all you had to go digging with, you’d want to feel like you found some gold needles from a haystack, ya feel me?

^this post reads like a verse about record digging. U need to spit this with a beat under it and turn it into a track.

Depends on ur purpose for digging. If u r looking for valuable records, ur usually gonna pay for em. If ur trying to find a gem of 30 seconds worth of beatmaking gold from a shitty beat down old record that sounds like shit over 70-80% of it, then u can still come up for relatively cheap. To me, that’s where the art of sampling lies. Not in finding a dope recording and then looping different 2-4 bar sections of it. There aren’t really that many “good” songs left that haven’t already been “discovered” and sampled numerous times. There “r” however an infinite number of ways to “flip” ugly discarded garbage into “audio gold”. :idea: :arrow: :!: :?:

Oddly enough, there’s a Goodwill thrift shop that’s closing up at the end of August. Wish I could care, but I don’t except to dig in whatever is left, unless it’s all 50% off. I don’t know why they’re closing down that location, but I got fed up with their prices for records I’m not even wanting to take home. You don’t expect valuable records. If you want classical, Christmas/Seasonal records, and a little bit of country if you’re lucky, I guess you go there. But nobody’s gonna donate their complete Iron Maiden records to Goodwill I promise you!

For the most part, Thrift shops, antique stores, and vintage boutiques aren't gonna have shit. But, every blue moon you come up on a find.
Once I found a pair of Yamaha NS-10 studio monitors in a Salvation Army for $30 for the pair. I thought for sure the tweeters would be blown but thought they may be able to be salvaged. I hooked them up and they worked perfect. It was a grail find. A couple years later I sold them to a friend who works at a record shop for $200 (at the time I was moving and needed dough.)

Another time I found a bunch of drum break grails on 45 at a local Goodwill. Picked up Winstons- Amen, Lee Dorsey - Get Out My Life Woman, and the Apache break from Arawak, Incredible Bongo Band. All these were 25 cents each. Also some good dollar records that had dope loops.

So yeah, you can find the stuff. It's worth poking your nose through once in awhile. 9 times out of 10, you will be let down. But when you score, it's that much more rewarding.

The same can be said for local craigslist listings.

At least with CL, you’re probably buying from another collector who isn’t going to waste your time with records your grandparents relaxed to. They probably have what you might want. If they’re listening on CL they’re likely moving, need the extra space, need to repair their vehicle or something along those lines. I’d be even down for garage sale digging, but that all depends on who is selling off what.

This is the most beautiful loop digga story I've ever heard in my life
