@Draco_V_Ecliptic I would say I and IV (or the untitled album as it’s sometimes known) are probably the classic Led Zep albums. I’d like to get hold of them and a copy of Back in Black (AC/DC) at some point.

Like I say, I don’t mind picking up remasters now and have London Calling (the Clash) and Born to Run (Springsteen) on vinyl as remasters rather than selling silly money on the originals.

And I think I got the frames from Urban Outfitters. I hate the shop but they were really good value in there. I sometimes used to put a “collage” of sorts of 7” records in one of them too. Some of the fatter double albums don’t fit in though.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic And definitely check out The Who if you somehow haven’t. Who’s Next should certainly be on your to-buy list!

@Thrillho Hey dude, yeah I used to have Who's Next on CD, but I agree, it is definitely worth a vinyl purchase, it's fairly cheap online too! .I was going to listen to some of their more recent stuff, they released an album last year, have you heard it? I didn't listen to it because I thought to myself - what are The Who without Keith Moon?

@Thrillho Have you heard any Earth? I have Full Upon Her Burning Lips and The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull on vinyl, proggy, Sabbath-infused rock.

Found In the Aeroplane Over the Sea on vinyl for £10 in a charity shop today. While it’s the 2009 reissue and not an original, I’d still say that’s a pretty good find considering the album has reached semi-mythological status.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

As part of my recent music haul, I picked up the Floating Points album on vinyl rather than CD as I quite liked the artwork. Good album too.

@Thrillho With regard to the Floating Points record, I have been listening to it on Spotify, and loving it, I'm planning to purchase it on vinyl at some later stage. It is a mixture of downbeat and more uptempo material, material that allows you to reflect and ponder, and music that lets you shake your hips about a bit, what do you reckon their intention was during the crafting of the album?

Weatherday/Sputnik confirmed on Twitter that they’re releasing Come In on vinyl, I’m stoked beyond all belief. Easily one of my favourite albums of last year and an essential lo-fi emo album.

@nessisonett I'll have to give that a listen, do you like any Wilco? Thought that 'Being There' might be up your street if you're into that sort of thing, or Yankee Hotel Foxtrot if you're looking for something a bit more leftfield. It's great that your record will become available on vinyl soon though, as you'll be able to enjoy it in a high-quality format.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic Yeah, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot’s great but my favourite album of theirs is probably Summerteeth. Despite a whole lotta Country music being an unholy abomination, the alt-country movement from the late 90s and early 00s spawned some really great albums.

@nessisonett Yeah, especially from the camp of Jeff Tweedy and friends. Did you ever hear any Uncle Tupelo records? Know if they're worth a listen?

@Draco_V_Ecliptic Honestly, Uncle Tupelo are a band I haven’t really got round to yet. My personal favourite album from that sorta genre is Magnolia Electric Co by Songs Ohia. Now there’s an album where every song brings something to the table. And I have it on vinyl too!

Country is one of the genres I listen to the most. I love the traditional country, the alt-country and even the poppy stuff quite a lot. Depends on the mood, though.

Some of my most favorite somewhat-recent somewhat-alt country albums are Purple Mountains, Sturgill Simpson - A Sailor's Guide To Earth, Marlon Williams - Make Way For Love, Neko Case - The Worse Things Get.

Uncle Tupelo is great. Not Wilco great though, but worth a listen at least!

@Kidfried I really liked A Sailor's Guide To Earth, did you hear Sound and Fury? That's supposed to be more rock n' roll isn't it? I'll give Uncle Tupelo a go then, they're first album is highly praised on the internet.

Country in general is quite good, I really like Dwight Yoakam, The Highwaymen, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, Glen Campbell etc. do you like any of those?
