Rock 'n' Roll, Records and Record Collections

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

A forum for music and vinyl enthusiasts, cultivated reactionaries, discriminating packrats, anyone at all, really (helps if you remember AM radio and the phonograph).

Feel free to post advice, private manias, boasts, musical arcana, cleaning and collection management, anecdotes, etc.

My primary focus is on "unrefined" rock and roll, r&b and blues from the 50s, 60s and bits of the 70s and 80s (The Stooges, Eddie Cochran, Frankie Lee Sims, Tommy Johnson, The Electric Eels, Joe Clay, The Modern Lovers, The Flamin' Groovies, The Swamp Rats, Janis Martin, The Trashmen, The Sonics, Skip James, Link Wray, Young Jesse, The Downliners Sect, The Legendary Stardust Cowboy....)- and no doubt I will tend to verbally obsess upon it. Please feel free to augment my monologue or spawn your very own!
