DG Mono asked for it, LJC happy to oblige.
You have told everyone how big your collection is. I’m impressed. Now what are the records you really really want? The ones you crave but can’t get, that you can’t afford, the ones you bid on – and laugh when you see the final price, the ones that would make your friends spit and turn green with envy. May be you have later reissue, a modest Japanese press, even just the Evil Silver Disk, but you want that original vinyl.
Play Fantasy Jazz Record Collector. It’s cheaper than therapy. You can nominate ten records you would most like to have spinning on your turntable right now. It doesn’t matter what they cost, you can afford it, because in this game you have an unlimited supply of record collecting vouchers.
Only ten records maximum – don’t be greedy. And don’t worry about condition, all records and covers in Fantasy Record Collecting are mint. Unlike in reality. All Most Wanted records are assumed to be original pressings. Also unlike reality. If enough people put in their list, I can compile the answers to create a Most Wanted Hall of Fame, so to help me, your list needs to be in the following format, one line per entry, separated with a semi-colon:
Artist First Name and Last Name; Record Title; Label or Edition detail
Example: John Coltrane; Blue Train; Blue Note
Type your Most Wanted list in the Comments box in response to this post – that way everyone else can see read list. And have a good laugh, or feel smug because they have got them and you don’t. Schadenfreude is OK in this game.
To avoid WordPress’s annoying nesting behaviour, each list should be a fresh comment, not a reply to someone else’s list (unless you are specifically following up with a comment on that list). LJC comments are open to anyone, do not require registration or captcha, just fire away however usual LJC Comments Policy applies – offers of sale will be deleted, this is an educational non-commercial site, sorry.
From some of the comments on the How Big is Your Jazz Collection? post it seems there will be a few collectors that won’t be able to take part, because they already have every record they have ever wanted (sigh). Please be patient, there will be a major boasting opportunity in a future post. (Suggestions for future topics, polls or surveys always welcome)
Over to you. Don’t be shy. You’ll feel better for it. What’s on your Most Wanted list?
