Talkin’ Records: 10 Rarest Non-Music Sales


Non-Music is not a genre. In the database, Non-Music is comprised of everything from spoken word and comedy to field recordings and special effects. I am a rather involved collector of spoken word records and have well over a thousand pieces in my collection. I started out many years ago by recording standup comedy off […]

Killah Kuts Belong In The Trash

Killah Kuts belong in the trash. Nobody wants these awful wastes of vinyl. I cannot stress this enough. They’re awful to contribute, nobody buys them. The only redeeming factor they have is possibly a source of a useable generic 12” jacket or perhaps an emergency replacement cut-off wheel for a Dremel tool. Even then, it’d […]

It is impossible to have gotten this far in life without hearing bassist Carol Kaye‘s work. You have heard her work everywhere and not even known it, guaranteed. The intro to Sonny & Cher‘s “The Beat Goes On“? That was her. Her work appears on albums by Frank Zappa, Love, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel… The list […]

300000 rank points collection

I usually don’t like talking about myself at all. I find myself to be a pretty boring subject. However, after a good eleven years and change of work, I passed 300,000 rank points last night. At 3 rank points for each submission and 1 rank point for each image, edit or review this breaks down […]

I’ve made this list of the most expensive sales of punk and hardcore records that have happened over the years. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I am not exactly the most knowledgeable when it comes to punk. A lot of my friends are punks and for the most part they seem to be upright […]
