In this series of BlogPosts I'm going to give you a list of albums that I love to listen too, they are all (naturally) in the Vinyl Vault. There are a great many lists of great albums to buy on the internet, and some of these records I have chosen to include on this and other parts of the series are no doubt included on some of the other lists, but I am sure that some, maybe even most wont be.

This series of BlogPosts will have Fortgotten Gems, and Essential Picks, for a selection of shelves in the Vinyl Vault. The Essential Picks will just be a list, whilst I will try and put a comment on each of the Forgotten Gems.

Each listing, whether it is an Essential Pick or a Forgotten Gem, will have a link for you to buy yourself a copy of the album at our preferred online marketplace, Discogs. We do advise you to check the feedback for any seller before purchasing, but our experience has been overwhelmingly positive. These links are not affiliate links and we do not share any information with Discogs about our visitors.

So lets continue with the Compilation Album Shelf, and 20 Essential Picks that are hiding within the records. In our next post, we will be looking at a new shelf, starting with the Forgotten Gems, in a few days time.

These albums are not listen in any particular order, just whatever order I've listened to them in, or pulled them out of the racks.

As ever, I'll catch you on the flip side and keep putting that needle on the records, (carefully) and we'll see you on air!
