Starting Your Music Collection
A music collection is a must have for everyone, it is a representation of your interests, style and even emotions. If you are reading this you have made a decision that you are missing out on not having a collection of your own. New and old music alike is quick and easy to find, most people use the internet to search and download their favorite songs. There are other options like visiting a local CD store, searching through yard sales and you can get your favorite bands albums at they’re concerts. Older music on vinyl albums can sometimes be rare and worth a lot of money. Generally you can purchase a used CD for a couple of dollars, newer music can cost anywhere from $0.50 up to$5.00 per song. Rare music can cost thousands of dollars, these items are usually stored away in a collection or are selling on Ebay for very high prices. The music section in Ebay can also be a great way to find some bargains to get you started on your new music collection.
To find artists and songs for your collection you can start by listening to music in different ages of time throughout history to find what you like. I find personally that I like newer music, so I start by looking up new Trending songs, Artists and Bands. The is so much music that the list would almost be endless, it will take you along time but gradually over the years you will build up a collection. You can start with a genre of music, or a time frame of when it was created and broaden your search from there.
Popular artists are another good way to start looking for your taste in music. They are popular among everyone so you can trust that they have quality music. Generally these popular artists are newer, so if you prefer music it may take a little more research and work to find. The value of vinyl albums is correlated to viny, if it has been kept in very good care than it will be worth more money. Generally older music is has been used and not stored away and is usually not in the best condition. This is a big difference when comparing new music, because new music is stored digitally the condition will always be the same. For older collections of vinyls, tapes, Cd’s and cassettes are common to be scratched, have stains, broken or even damaged to the point where you cannot listen to the music.
I store my collection of music in my living room at home where I can easily access it to play when I am entertaining guests. Most people store their collections of music on their phones, computers, laptops or even tablets. I have a few rare vinyl albums that I like to display, and on special occasions I like to listen to them. I also Collect memorabilia from famous Artists that were also featured in films or Broadway productions.
This should help you out on your journey to building an amazing collection of your favorite music. I wish you the best of luck on your search. If you find any great artists or songs you would like to share, feel free to follow me on social media and post on one of my pages. I am always looking to add to my collection of music, and you should be too!
