My Record Collection

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

I thought it would be fun to share a portion of my record collection with you! It's funny, going through my dusty and sometimes very worn assortment of records, I realize there is a story behind each of them.

80s party! Left to right: Adam and the Ants - Prince Charming, Michael Jackson - Thriller, Janet Jackson - Control, David Bowie - Scary Monsters, Prince - Purple Rain, & Blondie - Eat to the Beat

Aww, the beautiful 80s! These are some of my absolute favorites, I could stare at the vivid and graphic cover art all day *__* Michael Jackson's Thriller was actually sent to me by a dear friend Victoria, and my siblings and I found Purple Rain for only $1 at a library sale - we originally bought it for my mother, who is a huge fan of Prince (something which has been passed down to me! ^^).

Disney! Left to right: Lady & the Tramp, Walt Disney's Merriest Songs, Pinocchio, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella (center)

I went through stacks and stacks of records at a local Goodwill searching for something interesting. It wasn't until the very last stack I found this Cinderella soundtrack - a true gem for me since Cinderella is my favorite Disney film!

Film soundtracks and some of my favorite vocalists. Left to right: Judy Garland at Carnegie Hall, Gigi film soundtrack, Liza Minnelli's Liza with a Z, & Funny Lady

A kind soul struck up a conversation with me outside of the same Goodwill as mentioned above and asked me what kind of records I was looking for. I told her I loved Judy Garland and musical soundtracks, to which she responded she had a few Judy Garland record in her car truck! She disappeared and came back with a Judy Garland at Carnegie Hall record in excellent shape, handed it to me and said I could have it. I was completely taken aback and thanked her profusely!

Do you have a record collection? I'd love to hear about it!

  17. Wow! Your collection reminds me of what I’ve got before! Too bad, they’re no longer on my shelf, except for The Roxette’s album. But anyway, it’s only the vinyl record that I’ve lost because I have their digital versions on my iPod. :)
