Hi Everyone

A while ago, I promised you my Post | Apocalypse Playlist so here it is!

The advance warning horns have gone off, this is what I would choose to grab. If you want to take part, send your suggestions, to The Vinyl Vault Studio if your choices of record are in The Vinyl Vault we will link to them so everyone can see whats on the records you choose.

I Hope you enjoy reading what I would take, and 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!
Dex

2 x Box Sets

None of the choices for any of the sections have been particularly easy to make, but out of the three, this has been the easiest. Mainly because the number of Box Sets is much lower. As with all the sections, these are listed in no particular order! just the order that I saw them on the shelves.


  • Squeeze Box: The Complete Works Of "Weird Al" Yankovic

    "Weird Al" Yankovic
    1 x LP Album

    Browse Release

  • Mood Music For Listening And Relaxation

    Various
    12 x LP Compilation

    Browse Release

10 x Albums

This is where things get hard, I could easily pick over 200 records to take!
I've conciously avoided listing albums by hugely popular bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and David Bowie, as they are likely to be brought be other people (I hope).
Again, these are listed in no particular order! just the order that I saw them on the shelves

10 x Singles

Another hard choice, but easier as I can complement and contrast the album choices, I could easily pick over 100 singles to take if I was allowed. As with all the sections, these are listed in no particular order! just the order that I saw them on the shelves

1 x Book

I have a choice of 3 for this, and I'm going to list them all for you and tell you my reasoning for leaving / taking each.

Haynes Manual for Vinyl: LEAVE
Why? I would leave this book, as I can always teach the younger people in the "bunker" how to choose a record player, care for vinyl and players myself, and they can pass the information down the generations.

VINYL : The Art Of Making Vinyl by Mike Evans published by New Burlington Books: LEAVE
Why? As good as this book is, it is at its core a picture book, a great picture book, and it does have some great information about the featured artists and graphical artists. If I couldn't lay my hands to the next book I'd happily take it .... (but I would try and sneak it in anyway).
