Default Vinyl Junkies, check out some of the remnants of my collection

I was once a pretty serious vinyl collector. When vinyl seemingly was on it's last legs in the late 80's/early 90's I continued to collect. Records were incredibly cheap and easy to obtain then because nobody wanted them anymore. I also worked at a number of used record stores throughout college and was constantly bringing stuff home.

I moved from one coast to the next and I made the difficult decision to sell the vast majority of my collection to another collector that I knew. I just couldn't bring my collection and I was offered a very generous amount of money that I couldn't turn down.

Some of my collection that didn't go to the collector went down to a friends basement for safe keeping. I ended up moving back to the east coast and forgot that I had left some records there. A few days ago he gives me a call to tell me that he's moving and to come and get my shit or he's going to give it away. Turns out I left more down there than I remembered, and some of them are pretty cool. Have a look:

Some proto-punk/space rock/garage rock/psych rock

MC5 - Kick out the Jams (this is the original rare gatefold with "motherfu*ker" in the liner notes)
Hawkwind - Doremi Fasol Latido
Nazz - original 1967 self titled album (Todd Rundgren's first band)
Atomic Rooster - In Hearing of

The Stooges/Alex Chilton/The Clash/The Damned

Some stoner rock/sludge, etc

Monster Magnet/Kyuss/Fu Manchu/Melvins

I have all the Thin Lizzy albums in there, here are 4

Some punk/hardcore stuff

Black Flag/Gang Green/Token Entry

Some metal stuff

W.A.S.P./Ozzy/Judas Priest/Loudness

Some Psych, etc

Captain Beefheart/Pink Fairies/Atomic Rooster/Pink Floyd

Mudhoney/Supersuckers/Severed Heads/24-7 Spyz

The Stranglers/The Suburbs/Girl/Godfathers

Some comedy albums

Tons of stuff like KISS and Black Sabbath

I also left a bunch of 7-inches in there. Here are some interesting ones:

Probot(Dave Grohl's metal project featuring guest singers) - Centuries of Sin(ft Cronos of Venom)/The Emerald Law(ft Wino of The Obsessed, Saint Vitus, Spirit Caravan, etc) on green vinyl.

PAW - Sleeping Bag/Hard Pig - self released 7-inch from this underrated early grunge band from Kansas. They would go on to score a minor hit with "Jessie" from their debut album "Dragline". On yellow vinyl.

Spirit Caravan - So Mortal Be/Undone Mind. On white vinyl.

Melvins/Patton Owalt split 7-inch - Boss Hoss/The Two dumbest c*nts in the World. Strange split. The Melvins doing a Sonics cover and Oswalt doing a bit on the flip side. Clear vinyl.

I have some Pearl Jam fan club 7-inches that an ex girlfriend gave to me because she didn't own a record player.

There's tons of other stuff too. Hope you enjoyed looking at some of these. Now I have to figure out what I'm going to do with all them. Sell or hang on to them?
