Sure a lot of us want to keep our records and even the covers and sleeves in great condition. I mean for some records but definitely not all of them and for me, it is nowhere near all of them. I have a good amount of records, some I want to keep in great condition, some in a okay condition and a lot that I really don’t give a fuck about if they get messed up or not. Really, I have at least 200 records probably that are completely useless to me.
Really obscure records that were practically destroyed when I bought them for less than a buck. Things like animal sounds from new zealand or some shit like that. Sure a really creative producer/ dj could probably find something in it and there is saying that there is always something you can find on a record to use in a beat or mix. And it being obscure-no one else would use it, hence another reason for digging for obscure shit. But really I have a ton of records I have deemed useless. I even have records with no sleeves, no covers and covers with no records. So what would a person do with these useless items? They could make 12 inch notes.
