Boris Speculates

I decided that I need a blog like this in order to truly appreciate my record collection. I will be lightly reviewing semi-obscure albums from my collection while uploading short clips ripped directly from the record. You'll occasionally see a 45 discussed, but for the most part I'll be dealing with albums.

An update, a long time coming

I will, once again, be making updates to this thing.  I never stopped buying records; and I certainly have not stopped listening.  I did stop writing about them.  So I’ll leave you with this post for now.  I’ve got many new pick-ups to talk about.  So keep a look out for some long awaited updates.

and those updates will be found here:

Don’t leave home without it (Taken with instagram)
This brush cost me $20.  But it does amazing work.  One run through with this brush will make an impact on the quality of the record.  Visible dirt and dust are easily picked up.  I give my records a thorough brushing with this before I wash them—if I need to.
A note to people buying brand new stuff.  Records right out of the shrink need a good brushing as well.  There is lots of residue and dust left over from the pressing plant.

Picked this one up—in its original shrink.  Don’t come by these a whole lot.

Finally picked up a mint copy of this.  See it so much—I’m just so picky.  This one is up to my standards.  Great album.
