Today’s #baseballvinylchallenge is about the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame - and I’m choosing Robert Johnson, a blues man inducted in 1986. He’s known as an early influencer to Rock n’ Roll — and the Hall Of Fame describes him as the first rock star. He was born in 1911 but died in 1938... perhaps by poison. He is a legend for his playing and for the story behind how he got so good. I was first turned on to Robert Johnson thanks to @bernietaupinofficial who wrote about him in the Elton John song The Wasteland. It’s part of the chorus: “Come on Robert Johnson; Though we’re worlds apart; You and I know what te like with the devil in our hearts. You sold your soul at the Crossroads...” The legend was that Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil in exchange for becoming the greatest blues man there ever was. There’s a whole bunch of other very interesting information about him and I urge you to look it up and then comment about what you discovered on this post! 🎶 #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #robertjohnson #blues #deltablues #rocknroll #rocknrollhalloffame #influencer #junevinylchallenge #bernietaupin #eltonjohn #halloffame #halloffamer @record_lady @wax33rpm

Today’s #baseballvinylchallenge is RBI — workout music. Well... I’m going with work around the house music and Can really gets me moving. How did I discover Can? I was shopping at @amoebahollywood and mentioned to them that I loved what they were playing throughout the store. The guy I talked to was surprised considering what I was shopping for. He told me all about Can and although I didn’t buy an album right then... I couldn’t stop thinking about this album... because it’s Can in a jar! Anyway... as soon as I took another trip out there I went straight over and grabbed this album. And I LOVE it! The sounds are great! I love the album art and the history that goes along with it. No... I don’t know the words, but that’s why it’s easy to get moving around the house — I’m not distracted by trying to sing along. What music do you like to listen to when doing housework? #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #can #amoeba #amoebahollywood #jar #egebamyasi @record_lady @wax33rpm #junevinylchallenge

Today’s #baseballvinylchallenge is supposed to be “stolen base” — or favorite cover song. Instead of highlighting the cover, I’m highlighting the original: Leonard Cohen and his song Hallelujah. I know the Jeff Buckley version the best, but if you ask your iPhone who sings it, it’ll reply Pentatonix. K.D. Lang did an incredible version at the Olympics in 2010 (watch the video — it’s breathtaking). And I recall something I saw on YouTube years ago where a bunch of random people gathered and sang it together and it was beautiful. Some even add their own lyrics to the melody. A google search brings up Bon Jovi, Rufus Wainwright, The Tenors, Susan Boyle, and so many others. What is your favorite version? #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #leonardcohen #jeffbuckley #kdlang #coversong #original #originalsong #variouspositions @record_lady @wax33rpm

For@today’s #baseballvinylchallenge a “change up.” @eltonjohn’s Jump Up album certainly has a different sound. I’ve always loved this album... having fun during “I Am Your Robot” and listening intensely during the short sound effect part on “Legal Boys.” I even used @bernietaupinofficial’s lyrics from “All Quiet On The Western Front” for a school project. I like that this album sounds so different. But I could say that about a number of his albums, of course. This one wins out though because of the robot song! What are your favorite songs about robots? 🤖 #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #eltonjohn #jumpup #bernietaupin #1980s #1980smusic #junevinylchallenge @record_lady @wax33rpm

Today’s #baseballvinylchallenge is a double play... and I have A LOT of those! But lately I can’t get enough of @eltonjohn’s Tumbleweed Connection. It’s very country in both sound and lyric, and some of the songs have a very laid back feel yet are full of little surprises. I own the record and CD and I still need to download the digital copy that comes with the vinyl release. What’s an album you own on multiple formats like CD, vinyl, tape, digital? #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #eltonjohn #bernietaupin #tumbleweedconnection #vinylclub #newrelease #cd #country #countrymusic @record_lady @wax33rpm

Sunday’s #baseballvinylchallenge is all about killer bass and I had to choose Magnus Larsson of @lukasgraham and it’s not just because he’s an incredible bass player but because I love how he feels the music. I could watch him play all day and night... and I can only hope that one day, someone like Magnus will love them enough to jam the way he does. Even when he doesn’t have a bass part, he’s still all in — bobbing his head and enjoying the music. Seriously... if you haven’t seen him play just YouTube Lukas Graham Live (especially ‘Drunk in the Morning’) and then thank me. What’s a song you like that has a killer bass line? #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes @record_lady @wax33rpm #lukasgraham #bass #bassist #vinylchallenge #junevinylchallenge

Today’s #baseballvinylchallenge by @record_lady and @wax33rpm is a recent purchase (aka Opening Day) and I certainly “opened” this one for the first time today. It’s the extended version of @EltonJohn’s I’m Still Standing and I love that there’s more instrumental in the beginning because I can really hear the band and am noticing new features of the song. And I know this song well — I listened to it every day as a “get up and get out of bed” song when I was a kid. I found this masterpiece at @waxtraxlv and that’s where I took this pic! Such a cool place! Such a wonderful song! And the b-side is something I never had heard before... “Earn While You Learn” by Lord Choc Ice. What song gets you going in the morning? 🎹 #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #eltonjohn #bernietaupin #extendedversion #single #45rpm #waxtrax #waxtraxlv #openingday

New month... new vinyl challenge! For June it’s the #BaseballVinylChallenge by @record_lady and @wax33rpm! I’m choosing @eltonjohn’s Greatest Hits Volume Two today mainly for the cover. Today’s post is about that Spring feeling and I really wanted to stick with baseball, but alas, my favorite artist of all time is from the UK, so cricket it’ll have to be! Even though I have almost all his albums (yes, I still have CDs of the ones that aren’t on vinyl), I like getting his Greatest Hits for the covers. I scored this copy at @amoebahollywood last time I was in Los Angeles. What’s your favorite Greatest Hits album? ⚾️ 🏏 #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #junevinylchallenge #eltonjohn #greatesthits #cricket #spring #amoeba #amoebamusic #hollywood

It’s the last day of the #MayVinylChallenge and I’m supposed to be posting my favorite release so far this year. But you all know I like the old stuff. This release came out years ago but I just got it for Christmas and began listening to it this year. I waited for a day where I could sit and listen and read all the liner notes. Afterward, I found a documentary about the making of the album and the story about how @eltonjohn reconnected with Leon Russell after so many years. It inspired me to reconnect with my piano teacher from childhood and I’m so happy I did! There’s another album I haven’t listened to yet because I’m waiting for a moment I can take it all in... it’s Elton and Leon performing together in Anaheim in 1970 and I found the album at @waxtraxlv in Vegas. When I opened it, the picture was similar to the one from The Union (although I LLVE that they included @bernietaupinofficial in the pic on The Union). For this last day of May... I’m highlighting this incredibly inspiring album. What music is inspiring you? #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #eltonjohn #bernietaupin #leonrussell #theunion #inspiration #history

Today’s #mayvinylchallenge — my take on the #shelfie... I wanted to highlight the shelf where the @eltonjohn records are kept at @waxtraxlv. One of my finds is this album, which I bought for the cover art. It appears to be a 1980 UK release of a variety of his songs from different albums, including Lady Samantha released as a single in 1969. What are some of your favorite record stores? #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #eltonjohn #waxtrax #waxtraxlv #recordstore

Today’s #mayvinylchallenge is supposed to be an album that took the longest to acquire, but I already posted it so instead, I’m doing the one that took the least time. Last time I was in Los Angeles, I visited @therecordparlour and they were playing Ray Charles’s All-Time Great Performances. I was enjoying the music but when Eleanor Rigby came on, I inquired and quite literally bought it right off the record player (I let them finish playing the side first, of course)! Have you ever bought an album the moment you heard a song from it? #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #raycharles #recordparlour #recordplayer #losangeles #hollywood

Happy birthday to Stevie Nicks today! Fun fact: My Parents named me after Stevie... but they read the album wrong and thought she was the guitarist and that Lindsey Buckingham was the singer. And that’s how I was misnamed. I only have two of Fleetwood Mac’s albums on vinyl and this is the only one I have with Stevie on the cover. I figured the violin was fitting because this album — cue the violins —caused so much drama (kinda like my name has). 🎻 🎸 #vinyl #vinylrecord #record #recordcollector #vinylcollector #spinning #music #vinylexams #vinylcollection_feature #vinyllovers @instavinyl #instavinyl #vinylcollectionpost #ilovediscogs #vinylcommunity #vinylettes #fleetwood #fleetwoodmac #stevienicks #lindseybuckingham #mickfleetwood #cuetheviolins #happybirthday #misnamed
