Vinyl Tag 2018 – My First Vinyl Community Video And Vinyl Giveaway ๐Ÿ˜Ž VC

August 6, 2019 6 By Kailee Schamberger


Hi everyone! Sasha here fromLong Play Vinyl. This is a long due video, I’ve been wanting to do it for a while but you
know, we all get sidetracked so I wanted to join in on that 2018 vinyl tag and I
wanted to present the Vinyl Community with my list of 20 different records.
Actually 20 questions. They’re not all about records but 20 questions. So let’s
get right into it. I have my phone right in front of me with all those questions
so I’ll be looking at the phones from time to time and I’ll be showing you the
records if I have them, I’ll be showing them so you. So let’s get started. Very first question
is: first video you ever saw in the vinyl community. I don’t remember what was the
exact first video but the very first person that I found on YouTube talking
about vinyl was Frank from channel 33 rpm. He has a video coming out on every
Sunday so that’s really good that’s what I liked about his channel. It’s very
consistent and I started watching him and it has snowball from then on and
I’ve been watching and finding a whole bunch of other people in the vinyl
community doing videos on YouTube which is really cool.
Alright so the second question is: favorite record that you discovered via
vinyl community video. I don’t remember whose video it was but
I remember the very first record that I saw and I’ve seen it several times on
different videos and I was like what is this? I’ve never heard of this I’ve never
seen it and eventually I stumbled upon the record at a garage sale and I had to
get it just because I kept seeing it everywhere and it’s right here King
Crimson so that’s the very first record that I discovered through vinyl
community. I have two copies of this one one of them is in I would say very good
condition the other one is more beat than that but I’ve got them both for
about a dollar which is really cool and it’s a really great album from a really
great band that I’ve never heard of before maybe last year or so. Alright so
next the third question: what are your other hobbies? This is a hard question
because my hobbies keep changing all the time. A few years ago I was really big
and active in European car community as well as motorcycles. Then I started
biking a lot and since it’s winter right now in Canada I’ve been learning how to
snowboard and I’ve been to the slopes quite a few times this winter so I would
say this is my hobby right now besides vinyl, snowboarding. I spent a lot of time
watching videos about snowboarding and I try to go as often as I can. So next
question, number four is: why did you start collecting? That’s a hard question
and I think everyone has a different answer but for many of us I would
believe this has something to do with being nostalgic.
I remember when I was a little kid I would go to my father’s house attic and
I would just listen to records because they had boxes of old records lying
around and eventually, maybe 10 years ago or so I had a friend that was throwing
away a crate of Records and I really wanted that crate and at the same time I
grabbed the records and I kept most of them. I didn’t really get into
collecting back then I just had that crate of Records which was really cool
and I’ll show you one of the records that was in there Janis Joplin this is a
classic and he had a whole bunch of Elvis and Beatles albums so I thought,
you know I’ll keep them, they look cool. Then I got a very cheap turntable which
I’m ashamed of right now was a Crosley. And eventually years later I met some
friends that were listening to vinyl and I just started buying them and going to
garage sales digging for records buying brand-new records as well so I guess
it’s that nostalgic feeling for me. Personally thinking back of my childhood
and how I used to listen to records with my cousins and my sister and so on.
Question number five: do you play instruments or are you in a band? I am
NOT in a band I play a guitar at an amateur level I wish I played better but
I’m not putting in the time to practice and I really wish that I would pick up
playing accordion. This is my new kind of, not obsession but I would like to do
that, I would like to try it. Unfortunately accordions are quite
expensive especially good ones and I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t have time
once again to put in to that yet another hobby so I’d love to but I’m not at that
point yet. Question number six: have you ever worked at a record store?
No I haven’t and I don’t think I would want to do that for many different
reasons but that would be another video for another time. Question number seven:
favorite album from the year you were born.
That’s a hard one because as Pookie mentioned that the 80s was the worst
time for music but I did manage to find one album
that is really great I actually had it a few days ago I don’t have it anymore, it
was released in 1986 Metallica’s master of puppets.
I bought a reissue of this album but I gifted to my friend’s son who turned 15
I believe, and he’s really into jazz and classic metal so I thought he would
enjoy the heck out of this album so I just had to give it to him for his
birthday. I have to order another copy because it’s a great album and it’s a
classic. What classic record had you never heard? I know many of you will kill
me for this especially Pookie because here’s a pretty big fan of Rolling
Stones and I’ve never heard a single album of Rolling Stones entirely. You
know we’ve all heard some songs on the radio
and pretty much everywhere because it’s such a huge in popular band or at least
used to be so popular and still is now but I’ve never heard a single album like
entirely. Now I have three albums actually, I forgot the third one because
I don’t have it with me now but I have 2 albums that I’d like to show to you
both by Rolling Stones and both of these albums were pressed in USSR by Melodiya.
I have a video about these pressings and about these records.
So there’s Rolling Stones Lady Jane here is number one, and the other one is
Rolling Stones play with fire. I don’t know if you guys ever seen this if you
haven’t you could check out my video also another cool thing I will be doing
a giveaway of one of these albums. I’ll give you some more details at the end of
this video so keep your ears open and you might get a chance to get one of
these albums completely free. I’ll even ship it to you wherever you
are in the world. Alright so Rolling Stones yeah I’m sorry
I just I’m not a big fan. Next question: show a guilty pleasure record. That was a
hard one but I finally found one I’ve listened to it a couple of times the
thing is I don’t really have many guilty pleasure records because I only listen
to stop that I really enjoy and well this is one of them. True blue by Madonna
with Papa don’t preach and hits of that sort. It’s not a favorite album I
don’t listen to it often but I guess I could put it in the guilty pleasure
category because you know it’s so cheesy and it’s just crappy pop music.
Alright so next question: strangest strangest record, question number 10:
strangest record. The thing is the “strangest record” could be interpreted in
so many ways but I decided to go with something good because you know I’m sure
I have some strange records that I never listened to but here is one that is
really great. It’s very strange, it’s French psychedelic rock from early
70’s by Daschiell Hedayat. The album is called obsolete.
This is his second and last album, it’s well, psychedelic it’s from the 70s it’s
French. The first track is called “eh mushroom
will you mush my room?” that gives you an idea of what it’s about but a lot of
French music listeners think that this is one of the greatest psychedelic
albums that ever came out in France. So if you have a chance check it out and
I’ll try to put the links to either Amazon listings or discogs listings –
all of the album’s that I mentioned in this video so if you ever get interested
you could actually, you know easily find and track them down if you want to
listen to those records. Next question, number eleven: show a
picture disc. Well here is one that I got in 2016 I think. I got it on Amazon when
they had a big pricing error thing going on and I have a video on that too, you
should check it out, I’ll link to it in the description. This is a picture disc
this is called no mercy widespread bloodshed. I’m not sure, well I wasn’t
sure what it was. I got it because the guys from suicidal tendencies play on it and
some other artists and it was I think it was $4 or so.So I thought well, why not
get that? It looks pretty cool but I’m not a big fan of picture discs for
obvious reasons I think most of you in the vinyl community don’t have many
picture disks so that’s pretty much the only… no that’s not true! That’s the
second one! Aanother one I have is an old Elvis album
that’s also a picture disc and it’s basically a big face of Elvis on the
record I don’t really listen to that record either. Right, next one number 12:
best posthumous release. It took me a long time to figure that out because I
don’t really pay that much attention to which albums were released after an
artist has passed away but I figured that one out and it was actually pretty
obvious. This is one of my favorite albums. “Unplugged in New York” by Nirvana.
It’s a five-time platinum it was released in 1994 maybe half a year later
after Kurt (Cobain) died I think it was recorded in 1993 the actual MTV special
but it was released in 1994. If you haven’t heard of that show if you
haven’t listened to this record this is a must. You must have it, it’s really
awesome Nirvana is not known for playing cover
songs but for this show they actually played quite a few covers which is, you
know, an interesting choice for MTV Unplugged and if you don’t know that,
Kurt Cobain actually had his guitar plugged into his amp and some effects
because he just refused to play unplugged although the show is called
unplugged but you know, that’s Kurt Cobain. That’s how he was so really great
record if you haven’t heard this record if you don’t own it I highly highly
suggest getting it or at least getting a chance to listen to this album on
whatever format you want. Number thirteen: what artists do you impulsively collect?
Hmmm, this one is Jean Leloup. It’s a french-canadian artist he changed his
name once to Jean Leclerc which is you know different story but yeah he hasn’t
released that many records. I think I own pretty much all of them except that 2016
Record Store Day release which I could find for hundred dollars or more but I’m
just not willing to spend hundred dollars on a record. I’m hoping that it
will be reissued eventually and I’m pretty sure
it will be, but that’s pretty much the only album on vinyl from this artist
that I don’t own. I have all of the other ones if you have never heard of this guy
and if you’re watching this from the States you probably haven’t, but yeah,
I’ll add some links and you should check him out he has pretty good lyrics and
music is great it’s very special and you’ll discover a french-Canadian artist.
Okay next one: best blind buy. That was that was hard as well there was
a hard question because I have a lot of Records that I bought blindly but this
one’s very interesting. This is Bark by Jefferson Airplane. I bought it for a
dollar at kind of a garage sale. Basically there was a guy that was
selling a whole bunch of Records and this was one of them in the pile now to
be honest with you it wasn’t me who picked it was my girlfriend who found it
and she thought that with a cover like this one it has to be something
interesting, something good. I haven’t heard of Jefferson Airplane either until
I bought this album I bought it I checked it out. This is a Japanese
pressing which is really cool, it comes with like lyrics and Japanese and stuff
like that and the music is pretty good so I would say this is one of the best
blind buys especially considering that about it for $1. Next one: a blind spot
artist, that’s an artist that, you know it’s a lot of people don’t know about.
That was an easy one for me. It’s one of my favorite artists, Gogol Bordello.
A band from New York City, they have quite a few albums now and many of them
are on vinyl. I actually have most of them on vinyl except maybe one or two.
This is, they call it gypsy punk. This is really original and different music
maybe something you’ve never heard of I really like this artist I’ve seen quite
a few of their shows in Montreal and Toronto so yeah if you’ve never heard of
these guys check them out really good music and something a little bit
different from what you used to. Next one: your favorite album cover. Another really
hard question because there are so many covers that are simply beautiful and
amazing but I thought that this one was my
favorite because it’s simply freaky and it plays with my mind every time I look
at it. Pink Floyd’s “Relics”. Just just look at
that! This is, this is so weird and maybe it’s not the most beautiful or
the coolest or most elaborate or whatever but just because it’s so freaky
and it’s so creepy I completely love this cover art. Next one: a musician
you’ve met. The thing is that I’ve used to I used to go to a lot of shows
especially when I was younger I used to be very very active in a local punk
community so is to film a lot of punk shows and he’s to get free tickets to
see them so I’ve met the guys from the Addicts,
one of the biggest UK punk bands one of the oldest I guess. Dayglo Abortions a
huge very very known Canadian punk band that’s been around for 30 years or so
many many other punk bands I’ve met a lot of them I’ve partied with a lot of
these guys but one of the latest ones that I have met that I’d like to tell
you about his name is Ben Caplan. He’s Canadian as well and I got his record at
his show really good record this is Canadian folk music, that’s how he
describes it, the guy has amazing energy really good music you should check it
out of course I got it signed by him when I got that record. So that was one
of the latest musicians that I’ve actually met and every time I meet them,
I meet them at shows this is well one of the reasons you go to the shows to meet
other fans and to meet the musicians as well if possible. Question number 18: show
a record with sentimental value. This was an easy one as well. This is a Ukrainian
artist by the name of Onuka. It’s kind of experimental electronic music, down tempo.
It’s really really good actually it’s very very strange that this kind of
music comes from Ukraine because it just I it sounds very Western and very
experimental. This specific record is very sentimental to me because I
couldn’t get it shipped anywhere. You had to be in Ukraine and get it shipped in
Ukraine because they didn’t sell it in the stores. This is a limited edition, I
think they came out with 233 copies or so. But I had a friend who was visiting
Ukraine at the time when this record came out so I got in touch with the
shop or with the guys that were selling this record and I persuaded them to meet
my friend and actually sell it to him, give it to him face to face. So he got
that record then he flew back with it to Canada I got it then. A few months later
this band Onuka came to play in Ottawa in Canada and I couldn’t make the
show because I wasn’t in the country on that date. So I had a friend who took
this record went to see the band and actually got it signed on the back. You
can’t really see it because it’s black on black but this record is now signed
to me, so, all these people who were involved in the fact of, well, me getting
this record that’s what makes it very sentimental to me and once again I’ll
put up links to this artist. This is really interesting music and you should
check it out. This is new, this is different, and this is original. Question
number 19: your favorite album no one else seems to know about. This one was
also easy. This is the Lemon Bucket Orkestra and the album is called “If I had the
strength” – this is the very first vinyl release from this band. This is a band
from Toronto and they’re playing a mix of gypsy Balkan klezmer party music. It’s
really really cool this is the kind of music that I’m actually into right now
and have been for quite a few years so this is the very first record they
released. I bought it at the show as well when they came to Montreal with their
Canadian tour to celebrate this release. I got it signed on the back by every
single member of the band which was quite hard to do but possible. So if you
have never heard of Lemon Bucket Orkestra you should check them out as
well, really different and cool music, party music, so yeah.
Last but not least: favorite album out of a genre that you know well. This was also
quite easy for me because I recently got a record and this was from a girlfriend
as well. She went to Rough Trade in New York City and they were giving
out some free records actually and this was one of them. The album is called
“Shine” and this is by Cilantro Boombox. This is kind of Latin jazz party funky
music that I’m really not familiar with but I listened to this album at least
five or maybe six times in the past, in the past few months maybe even more than that.
I find the music really good really moving and well really funky. So Cilantro
Boombox with Shine. This is my very very last question answered on this
