  • I dabble in a bunch of things but mostly my heart is in:

    Soul 45's
    Jamaican music
    Onitsha Market Literature (pamphlets and anything related)
    West African photography (prints, books, photo albums)
    Other kinds of art (mostly American folk art, some crazy tramp stuff, but have some $$ things as well)

    Interesting to see the poasters who's record collection is limited to a genre or two.

    I collect

    Psyche/rock/prog/folk 'whiteboy guitar band music' from the '60s & '70s

    Soul & Funk LPs & 45s from the same period

    a small amount of disco/boogie singles

    Jazz, Bluenote/funky stuff/fusion, Euro, British

    OSTs/Libraries when I can find them

    Reggae/dub LPs, 45s and 10"s

    Afrobeat/Afrofunk stuff that's so-hot-right-now

    Hip-Hop, mainly the sample dominated early '90s sound, not so much of the '80s, very little post '97

    Oldskool Jungle from the '93-'96 era that was dominated by groundbreaking drum programming, filters and sub-bass that sounds like Rolf Harris weilding a 60 foot wobble-board

    MoWax & NinjaTunes 'Trip-Hop' from the mid-to-late nineties

    British electronica from the '90s like Future Sound Of London, Aphex Twin, Orb, Orbital, Squarepusher, Vibert

    Deep house of the Detroit/Dixon/Carl Craig/Parrish variety

    Dubstep that sounds like the things I like about Jungle, or Reggae, or Deep House, or Hip-Hop, or Electronica

    and t-shirts, books, comics.

    When does collecting become hoarding? Does this topic warrant its own thread?

    I would say when your collecting starts taking over your living quarters.

    when overflow records are stored/shelved in the kitchen a group intervention is in order.
