A non-hypothetical question:

Help me out here.  For Christmas, yours truly got a record player.  I love it to pieces (it can actually transfer my records to iTunes!).  I've been listening to my vinyls since I brought it home... and yes, I actually owned vinyls before ever owning a record player.  And yes, I know that's weird.  Shut up.

Anyways, my vinyl collection is rather slim - I think I have around ten - and five of the vinyls I own (six, if you count the 45) are by Jimi Hendrix.  Now, I love Jimi and all that, but I like a little bit of variety. 

I went to Ditch Records (one of my favouritest places in Victoria), looking for some additions to my collection.  And came across a couple of great ones (most of which I have in other mediums).  However, I have nowhere near enough cash to purchase them all.  This is where you come in.

Help me figure out which album to buy!  I already have some rock (Tool and A Perfect Circle), a lot of Jimi Hendrix, and (of course) Kyuss' Sky Valley.  With that in mind... which album should I pick up?  (they're all within five bucks of each other)
  • The Beatles' Abbey Road
  • The Beatles' "White Album" (yeah, the best "deal", since it's a double record)
  • Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy
  • Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon (with the crappy reissue cover)
  • Radiohead's OK Computer
  • The Original Desert Sessions album (*drool*, but really, only because it's a rarity)
  • Robert Johnson's original 14 recordings (A reissue, obviously!)
Your help is greatly appreciated. 


  1. Led Zeppelin. I like 'em.

  2. From that selection, I'd go with The Beatles.

    Btw, if you ever find Duke Ellington's Blues in Orbit album, snap it up! It freaking awesome and worth a fortune.

  3. You like Abbey Road the best anyways AND it is the Beatles' favourite album! Easy choice.
