It has to be the music, but I can see some of the other things fit in too, perhaps we should be allowed several choices?

I've just gotten into collecting very recently and there is certainly an obsessive part to it. Nearly every day for the past month I've gone on the prowl for records. Records just have so much more substance than any other format of music, I love it

Hey, RCG (first post!)

I started collecting records out of two reasons: an insanely unhealthy relationship to music; the thrill of the hunt.

But through collecting records, I've been able to train my ears to look for things that I know I'm going to like. I seem to have gently fallen into a love of stuff recorded between 1979 - 1983.

I selected other. I'm not really a record collector. First off I would never pay collector prices for a record. I'm a guitarist with a lot of records.

Collecting really had nothing to do with it. It was more like obtaining records so I could learn licks. I was really happy when cassettes and the rewind button were invented.
