Are You A Record Hoarder?
Some of the records we are hoarding.
Are you a record hoarder? Record collecting can be addictive. You start out just buying a few albums from your youth at the local book and record store, but quickly you become tired of your limited selection. Since you never get rid of anything, your stacks just keep getting bigger and bigger as you buy more and more records, often taking chances on something you barely have heard of just because it's on vinyl. Record collecting is a passion, but it can become a sickness as your records dominate all of your available space, forcing your significant other to give you an ultimatum: "The records must go, or I will!"
Would any of you classify yourselves as a record hoarder? We are curious and would love to hear your plight.
