I've started a (what is still a pretty small) record collection over the last couple of years since my mum gave me some old Black Sabbath, Hawkwind and Lynyrd Skynyrd records. I've added to them from this an awesome shop in Reading called The Sound Machine that has stacks of old records. My boyfriend and I had the most fun routing around in there. I got the Saxon Denim and Leather vinyl, Freebird Lynyrd Skynyrd and Deep Purple In Rock. And for my last birthday the boyfriend got me a Bat out of Hell Meatloaf record and the Jimi Hendrix Concerts. I'm now looking to add some Led Zeppelin and, of course, some Stones. 

But my real hunt is now for a bloody record player. We used to have one that mum played all of hers on, but unfortunately it died a sad death years ago, so now I'm really keen to get a new one so I can actually play them rather than have them sitting here tempting me. Old music sounds so much better when it sounds old!
