“Record collecting is an infinite journey backwards.”
“You always get the buzz, to begin with, every time you walk into a good store. It’s really like a drug fix. You always walk into the store with that feeling of I’m going to hit the jackpot. If that doesn’t happen you’re depressed until you hit the next shop. And I’m telling you the whole truth. When I walk into a record store, I personally get so excited that I have to run to the bathroom. And it isn’t number one, mate. I’m talking number two.”
“Who collects records? Mostly people that don’t have a dating life. I’ve found myself trapped in many obsessive collecting situations that just don’t leave room for anything else. I learned to back off.“
