I've been searching for nothing but story/sound records for a while. Any one else out there enjoy finding ridiculous shit on record?

 

some recent finds

-portugues(sp) language course record

-morse code instructional

-maytag repair record

-"how to hypnotize yourself" clear orange LP

 

 

also, i got tons of old story records from spider-man to the hobbit if anyone is interested in trading.

german beer drinking songs are a dime a dozen dude and they have at least 4 copies of "eye of the tiger" at every vintage record shop i go to. I'm interested in what the sound effect records are.

 

just got the hobbit 7 inch the other day and the story of how the camel got his hump.

 

baptist preacher records are awesome, spider man vs. Draco is a nice little find.

 

 

 

i'm looking for any 78 story records. Any one willing to trade?

i have about two crates full of bbc sound effect records from the 60's and 70's and short/novel story records too.

 

i found them all at a local library. i was wandering around in the back and i spotted a whole shelf of records, and asked them if they needed them anymore, and they said no and let me take them away. it was even a good thing for them considering all those records were taking up space.

 

so go to your local/school library and chances are you can steal/buy/recieve a lot of cool vinyl.

 

i have a couple of 78's but i gotta spin the platter by hand haha

if you are willing to part with any of these i'll make an offer you probably will refuse.

 

 

so far one of my best finds was the Laugh-In album. "It's a facaaaaadddddeee"

just so you know, if i had witnessed that i would be forced to shove the broken shards of record down your throat...:beat:

 

weird records i have:

quotable quotes of the 1940's

wild turkey calls 7"

"the long continuous A note" (A record i found at a garage sale... a regular double sided 12", no sleeve or label on the record, and all it plays is an uninterupted synthesized A note...:confused: )

planet of the apes comic book with 7" that reads it with voices and everything

car crash sounds 7"

 

i know there's more... gotta delve into the archives...

that woulda been cool , we coulda had a big record fight like ninjas with throwing stars , except non-pointy round versions

 

no seriously it was hilarious fun , we took a bunch of good/old ones , but sharp broken record shards flying all over the place spells good times in my book

absolutely!! :lol: i must admit it's quite entertaining to watch vinyl shatter, but if it's not already cracked or something, i could never destroy a record... that would be like crushing a kitten's skull in my hands...:(
