I just start digging. Whatever looks/sounds good will be bought. Sometimes I look for something more specific, like sometimes I need some mellow jazz, or I want some more orchestra stuff. Quite random actually

all three but most of the time i like to find stuff that i never heard of. theres to much music out there to just listen to the same stuff, although when i get home or it becomes part of my collection it gets played all the time!!!

B and C. A is not possible in my area cause there are no record shops. Just thrift stores and flea markets. On the fflea markets sellers who sell only records (so they are kind of sorted) are very rare and often overpriced (for my buget ;))
So it makes no sense to go out looking for a specific record.
Its great to dig in crates with all that **** records german volksmusik and stuff like that just to find something like the Winstons - color me father LP. I always wonder how such things can happen and feel kind of blessed :)



peace
