Ted Doering  Toronto, 🇨🇦. Music addict since '92. Mostly vinyl, but will also post CDs and concert pics. For life stuff check out @teddyblife

Today once again I want to highlight my friends @deaddogrecords, my favourite record store. I’ve known these guys for 10 years now, from when they used to run Sunrise, the record store 5 minutes from my work to now, where they have opened a Dead Dog location again 5 minutes from my work. Not only are they super nice, but they offer great suggestions on music that I never would have thought to pick up. Here are three. Local Canadian band Sun K and their album “Bleeding Hearts”. Fans of Arkells will love this. Another Canadian band, The Dirty Nil with their second album “Master Volume”. Fans of Pup will enjoy. And Khrangbin’s “Con Todo El Mundo”. This is instrumental and is awesome for chilling out and writing. If you ever find yourself in Toronto, definitely check Dead Dog Records out! @sunkofficial @thedirtynil @khruangbin #sunk #khruangbin #thedirtynil #deaddogrecords #shoplocal #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #nowspinning

Never a bad time to spin this absolute classic. In true Ted style, “Exile in Guyville” was the second Liz Phair album I heard, after the also great “Whip Smart”. I used to bring my discman on car rides and I know I rocked this one while I was headed to dinner with my parents, younger siblings and grandma. Perfectly suitable, family friendly lyrical content for sure. Hope you all have a great night! @lizphairofficial @matadorrecords #lizphair #exileinguyville #matadorrecords #lofi #90s #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #nowspinning

“Remember, whatever
It seems like forever ago
The regrets are useless in my mind
She's in my head
I must confess
The regrets are useless in my mind
She's in my head
So long ago
And in the darkest night
If my memory serves me right
I'll never turn back time
Forgetting you, but not the time”

“American Idiot” is a landmark LP for Green Day as it elevated them back to superstar status (though I still have a lot of love for the albums between “Dookie” and “AI”). While there were a lot of massive hits off this one, my dark horse track is “Whatshername”, which the lyrics at the beginning of my post are from. Love when an album track really sneaks up on you and resonates. Hope you guys have a good one. @greenday @repriserecs #greenday #americanidiot #rockopera #billiejoearmstrong #mikedirnt #trecool #punkrock #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #reverblp #nowspinning

#metalmonday with Queensryche’s brilliant concept album “Operation: Mindcrime”, which is celebrating its 30th birthday this year. I’ve mentioned this before, but I had no idea who Queensryche were until I moved into residence in 1995, my first year of university. My new roommate John quickly got me up to speed and this opened the door to me taking a more active interest in progressive rock, which has lead me to Dream Theater and now Steven Wilson/Porcupine Tree. They say things happen for a reason! Hope you all have a great Monday. @queensrycheofficial @capitolrecords #queensryche #operationmindcrime #geofftate #chrisdegarmo #metal #progressiverock #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #nowspinning

What a band R.E.M. was. This is the vinyl companion of their massive CD box set “The Best of R.E.M. at the BBC”. While the vinyl does not contain any songs from “The New Adventures of Hi-Fi”, which I referenced a couple posts ago, it does give us a couple off “Up” in “Lotus” and “At My Most Beautiful”. “Up” got me through a lot of 4th year university and its tour was the one and only time I saw R.E.M. live. Hoping for a vinyl reissue soon, but I’ll take these live tracks in a meantime! Have a great night all. @rem @craftrecordings @bbc #rem #michaelstipe #billberry #mikemills #peterbuck #thebestofrematthebbc #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #nowspinning

Some colleagues and I were chatting about pop music at work yesterday, including the Spice Girls’ recent reunion. The Spice Girls’ music has stood the test of time, as has Michael Jackson’s, Madonna’s, George Michael’s, etc. It got me to thinking, what pop music of today will we still be talking about and listening to in 5, 10, 20 years? I feel this one has a strong chance. Janelle Monae’s “Dirty Computer” is a tour de force and one of the best albums of the year. Glad that it finally made its way onto wax and thanks to @deaddogrecords for the hook-up. Enjoy your day all! @janellemonae @atlanticrecords #janellemonae #dirtycomputer #pop #popmusic #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #nowspinning

I think everyone has that “dark horse” album from their fave artists that has been forgotten, lost, or is not as well known as others, but is still a strong artistic and musical statement. R.E.M. has a few for me in “New Adventures in HiFi” and “Up”. “Echo” is the Tom Petty album that fits into this category. Recorded as he was in the midst of a heroin addiction and going through a divorce, the vibe on this album is not super positive, but I can relate to every word sung and every note played. And this tour was the one and only time I saw him and the Heartbreakers live. I can see why TP wouldn’t want to revisit this one and rarely did after 1999, but I love doing so. Seriously listen to the title track. It’s why Tom Petty is one of the most, if not the most, consistently great artists ever. Sorry for all the words, hope you all have a great Friday night. @tompettyofficial @wbr #tompetty #tompettyandtheheartbreakers #echo #rickrubin #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #nowspinning

Good morning all. Gonna get into one of the artists that was a soundtrack to growing up in the 80’s, John Mellencamp. Or John Cougar. Or John Cougar Mellencamp. Anyway you slice it, he has given us some really great and enduring music. This is “Scarecrow” and it contains the hits “Small Town”, “Lonely Ol’ Night” and “R.O.C.K. In The USA”. Hope you all have a great day! @johnmellencamp #johnmellencamp #scarecrow #smalltown #80s #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #nowspinning

Good morning all. Starting it with the first Morrissey album I ever heard, “Vauxhall & I”. I’ve said this before but the late 80’s / early to mid 90’s for me were about Bon Jovi, Queen, Aerosmith, G’NR, Def Leppard. I never really got into artists like Depeche Mode, Bowie, the Smiths and Morrissey until University. Though the first time I heard “The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get” I was fully hooked. Hope you all have a great day! @officialmoz @parlophone #morrissey #vauxhallandi #themoreyouignoremethecloseriget #thesmiths #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #nowspinning

I saw this cool thing called #alphabetvinylwall from my friend @lory_pretzel who informed me that this idea came from @vinylal73. Neat. Well, my name is Ted and T stands for Third Eye Blind because I read they were headed back into the studio so that is great reason to celebrate their amazing discography. Have a great one all! @thirdeyeblind @3eblifestyle #thirdeyeblind #3eb #3eblifestyle #stephanjenkins #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #reverblp #nowspinning

Sorry folks here is a non-vinyl photo. Had a great couple of days in New Orleans checking out the Saints game, having some huge ass beers and immersing myself in this great city. I was with family, it was my brothers in law 40th birthdays so we celebrated in style. Family forever. Great times. #vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinyligclub #vinylcommunity #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinyljunkie #nowspinning #saints #neworleans #neworleanssaints #nfl #family

Late night spins with ELO’s “Out Of The Blue”. I’m late to the ELO party but I trust friends like @harma808 and @karenruthboyer who are down with Jeff Lynne’s outfit. So far, so good!
