“It is strange for me to pick ‘Thirteen’ out of ALL the albums in my collection. And it definitely wasn't the first Teenage Fanclub record I ever heard. In fact, my love for this record only started growing more and more, the older I got. I was a huge fan of ‘Songs From Northern Britain’ and ‘Grand Prix’ in the late 90's. All in one year I had discovered Liz Phair, Radiohead and Teenage Fanclub and it was probably the most important year of my life...even if i was only 8 years old.
⠀
Believe it or not, I was listening to Teenage Fanclub well before I had ever heard of Radiohead. It was my camp counselor who heard me listening to Grand Prix on my discman and immediately decided to "take me under his wing" and swap discmans with me on field trips, which ultimately got me into Radiohead’s ‘My Iron Lung EP’ and ‘The Bends’. Obviously, getting him into Teenage Fanclub in the process. But ‘Thirteen’ and ‘Bandwagonesque’ almost went unnoticed for me until I went away to college. I always heard my dad playing them, but never sat down to listen on my own.
⠀
I really love everything about this album and I'm sad it took me so long to sing its praises. This probably isn't my favorite Teenage Fanclub album but I wouldn't love music the way I do today without it. So, naturally when I started collecting vinyl, this was one of the first records on my wantlist. (The only original TF in my collection is ‘Songs From Northern Britain’ and a ‘Start Again’ 12" single). Everything else is a reissue and yes, my copy of ‘Thirteen’ includes the Bonus 7"...in case you were wondering.” #teenagefanclub #thirteen #vinylchapters #vinylnerd #vinyladdict #vinyljunkie #vinylcollection #vinylstories #vinylgram #longlivevinyl #vinyllove #loverecords #instavinyl #musiccollection #albumart #longlivevinyl #musiconvinyl #musiccollection #records #recordplayer #childhoodmusic #vinylcollector #vinylenthusiast

“It was difficult picking my favourite records, but I had to go with my gut on my first choices. I’ve picked these two as ‘Whole Lotta Love’ is my favourite song of all time, with Robert Plant’s voice taking me to another realm. Closely followed by ‘Stairway to Heaven’, which was controversial at the time for being over 8 minutes. Led Zeppelin refused to trim it to please record labels, which is something I admire as they stuck to their guns. It’s also ironic to me now as almost all the tracks I have in my sets are, by techno standards, around 8 minutes long.
⠀
My love for Rock has definitely manifested into the music I choose to play now. Heavy base, big synths. My mum and dad were massively into their Rock n roll.  My mum has seen everyone from Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, Jim Morrison, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, Queen, The Eagles, The Who, Rolling Stones to the Beatles. So it was inevitable these would be some of my favourite bands and records. Her Vinyl collection is just insane and now I absolutely treasure them.”

“This is my ‘Appetite’ collection. Vinyl, CD and cassette. This is one of my most loved albums of all time. It is a masterpiece. I still remember listening to it as my 12-year-old self when I was starting highschool and began to feel and love every song on this album. It really is one of my favourite albums to this day and features in some of the most incredible moments of my life that I can remember. 
I’ve been to see Guns ‘N’ Roses live many times, and this year I will be seeing them again. I fulfilled all my dreams two months ago by meeting Slash here in Argentina. It was a dream come true! Music heals me, inspires me and is an engine to every day of my life.”

“Depeche Mode is one of my favorite bands and ‘Violator’ was the album that first made me love them. I didn’t discover it until a couple years after it was released and I was a freshman in high school, but like handing the right book to a kid at the right time, it changed me. Since then it has provided me with the soundtrack to so many pivotal memories over the years. Every time I listen to it, I am reminded who I was, how I have changed, all the ways I have stayed the same, and why music is an essential part of my life.”

“Funk and Soul music is all I Love. My favorite period is from the ‘70s to the end of the ‘80s. This album is really magical because Bruno Mars managed to mix the R’n’B and old school Funk sound so well. In this album there are real whiffs of Kool and the Gang... whispers and more. I think this could be the secret son of the great James Brown!”

Record: The White Album.
⠀
“Almost everyone in the Instagram vinyl community has chosen this band or this album at some point. Rightly so because The Beatles have become a worldwide phenomenon and the greatest influencers of music.
I’ve chosen this album mainly because it is one of my earliest memories of holding a record. I think I was 5 when I started remembering who they were. They’ve always been played in our house and my family were huge fans. Of course, I don’t remember the songs per se but as a toddler, I would hum or sing along with the chorus because that’s really all I knew. 
Blackbird was the first song that my dad played in the car while we were driving. There was a sunset one weekend. I didn’t know where we were going but I remember struggling to sit down in the front seat because the sun was in my face. Ever since then, this album and every other Beatles album was a staple in the house.

Growing up, I had a deaf brother. His name is Jude. He plays the piano well and he would always sing and play ‘Hey Jude’ every afternoon. He would struggle because he couldn’t pronounce his words properly. He was hard of hearing but that didn’t stop him from playing and singing.

The White Album was always present in my life as I was growing up. I moved away from home and anytime I would get homesick, this album was my companion. Both my parents passed away in 2017 from cancer and again, this album was with me throughout my grieving process and it still is. This is very important to me because it always reminds me of home. I feel their presence every time I put this record on.” #thebeatles #thewhitealbum #vinylchapters #vinyllove #longlivevinyl #vinylenthusiast #vinylmusic #loverecords #albumart #musiconvinyl #musiccollection #records #recordplayer #recordcollector #recordcollection #nowspinning #instavinyl #33rpm #lovemusic #vinylstories #vinyl #instavinyl #recordcollection #vinylstories

“Timeless singer/songwriter James Taylor in a truly intimate performance of classic songs as well as some newer tunes that still have his quintessential sound. Songs that’ll surely warm your soul like a blanket fresh from the dryer and a voice as comforting as your favorite pillow. Just lay on back and enjoy! His whimsical guitar style pulls you in and his brilliant songwriting enshrouds you in a wonderful euphoria. This is as pure and honest as music can possibly get. 
Recorded 2007 at The Colonial Theatre. Pittsfield, MA. James Taylor’s hometown. My personal favorites are ‘Carolina on my Mind’, ‘Copperline’, ‘Steamroller Blues’, ‘Carole King’s You’ve got a friend’, and ‘Fire and Rain’. A great live album that everyone should check out. Very intimate and beautiful.”

“Growing up, music was intertwined with the fabric of my family. It was impossible to walk through the house without hearing Motown, Soul, Jazz, and R&B. One of my earliest memories is hearing Prince’s’ ‘Purple Rain.’ It’s one of those records that you can play from start to finish. One of those records that brings on the nostalgia and plops you into better times. 
I come from a family of vinyl collectors. My parents have held on to their records and still have quite the collection with almost 1,000 records. My parents own Princes’ discography so I never felt the need to own it myself. I have two firm vinyl beliefs: Never pay full price and don’t buy anything you’ll inherit. I broke both of my rules when I copped this record, but it was well worth it!”
