    I remember accidentally spilling water on my brand-new Led Zep album sleeve, and it started bleeding colors! wtf!

    That's one of the magical things about vinyl . . . the discoveries with every effort put forth by our favorite artists.

    I still have Blondie's first album, Dylan's Desire and The Who Sell Out.

    The Who's Quadrophenia on vinyl? fuggedaboutit . . . a whole book in there, two vinyl albums, a gatefold sleeve . . .

    The Doors' Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine was my first step into the Morrison mystique.

    Check out that fucking art . . . why they never reissued this on CD blows my mind.

    I fapped a few times to this in my collection. It was as close to porn as I could get away with in my 15 year old domain.

    Pixies anyone? I'd like to start buying vinyls, the temptation and convenience of free music kinda always ruins it though.

    Prince had a bunch of great 12" covers that he hasn't reissued to this day.
