Pre-Christmas Vinyl Chuck-Out

I've just finished sorting my collection of old vinyl recordings into two classes - those I definitely want to keep, and those I can live without.

If there are any Melbourne readers out there who might be interested in acquiring some old 70s and 80s pop, one hit wonders and other stuff I've come to regard as so much musical dross, just drop me a line (gummo dot trotsky at gmail full-stop com).

Have you thought about heating them until they become pliable, and turning them into flower pots and the like (although a mini herb garden is probably environmentally responsible)

In a word - no.

I'm not going to trash them just because I've gone off the nineteenth century romantics and various fave bands of my yoof. There might be people out there who actually like Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, and don't find it cloyingly over-orchestrated (to take just one example)
