Basically I want the AVForums of the Record Collecting World. I've stumbled upon the Record Collectors Guild but I think it's a U.S site. No disrespect there but I prefer a 'local' place to drop by... I appreciate that the acquisition of music commodities, namely CD, SACD, DVD-A etc is a relatively straight forward exercise. There are lot's of online resources (retailers) and it's really easy in the high street. But for me, when I wish to pursue the acquisition of a particular record on vinyl in it's original release, then it becomes difficult. O.K. I do buy RC and yes there are advertisements and links to various off the track shops wo specialise in rare records, but it's a real effort trawling site after site for that elusive record. I simply want to come onto a site like this but for record collectors and post in a community of like minded individuals who are likely to offer fruitful avenues for exploration.
