Vinyl – Allan Zweig

This is shaping up to be some sort of oddly riveting film about record collectors.  It really doesn’t glamorize the habit, but really gives you a good idea of the people behind this.

Not every record collector is some dope ass DJ in fly gear, digging through crates to find a decent sample.  In fact, the vast majority are amateurs.  But there’s also the forgotten class of perfectionists, bordering on OCD, who search forever for mint condition albums.  There are also those who search for the rare albums just because they’re rare.  The one-time pressings, the original album for some obscure promotion.

These Vinyl Junkies can’t help themselves.  It’s a compulsion that they can’t ignore.  

 

After a little googling, I found this.  Not sure if it’s legit or not, so if it’s not please let me know and I will remove the embed.
