"I wanna dress like the Stones!"

"Nah, forget that. I vote Mott the Hoople."

"No way, man. Stooges or nothing."

"I've GOT it! We all get matching Shriner's vests. My dad can bring a fez home from the temple for each of us."

All kidding aside, another one of my fave bands.

Don't need new music until this is organized.

I’ve been on a huge Redd Kross kick.  This is one of the greatest TV performances I’ve ever seen.  

I'm not into todays pop or rap ... In fact I hate it. But this is sooo good. R&B, Soul, Rock, Jazz ... high quality well engineered double album (that has more cuts than the CD) all 4 sides are gr

My brother pointed me to them last week. A little bit of everything in there. The Cult, Talking Heads, Quiet Riot, The Sweet, Devo, Deep Purple...

 

Check out their first album, "The Blue Garden", too. Another great band that fell thru the cracks.

My fave Bon-era record. Tight, raw production, it's got the goods. I still get verklempt when I hear, "Gone Shootin'."

Agreed! And the intro to 'Kicked In The Teeth' is a prime example of a Marshall about to blow up... "You told me baby I was the only one"... You can literally hear the power tubes screaming for mercy! Blessed compression!

This is my all time favorite AC/DC record. It got spinnin the other day. As I had been checking out the new one, when I fell back listening to Powerage  in full. Unbeatable...

Donating this 200lb (when loaded) monster to local thrift store charity:

Ordered these modular units. Love 'em! Keeps the LPs dust free and easy to lift.

Roughly half of my collection has filled four cubes. I'm gonna need a bigger boat:

What better time to enjoy cheap, imported lager than album reorganization?

This is going to take some time. Very happy with these cubes, though. Void-free, 3/4" birch ply, matte finish and solidly built:

And where do these fine cubes come from?

Simple Wood Goods

I priced out building my own and the cost was roughly the same. SWG products ain’t cheap, but they’re top quality. I couldn’t bear the thought of some heavy, ugly ikea wall unit. FWIW. the second quartet was 10% off, roughly $109/ea, free shipping.

At first glance, I thought they were spelling out HELP but upon closer look, it seems it's random other than Ringo posing like Baphomet.  Am I wrong?

These cubes remind me of the old Peaches Record Crates, though the ply cubes are likely more sturdy than the original crates or the repros, and cheaper too.  Ah, the price of nostalgia!

No affiliation BTW, and it costs nothing to go down Memory Lane by looking:

Sturdier? Definitely. Cheaper? Hardly. 

Those Peaches crates are cool. In 1970-80s SoCal, record store chains Licorice Pizza and The Wherehouse had similar crates.
