    Dust & Grooves is a fantastic site! Worthwhile to click on the ARCHIVES tab and check out some of the past interviews. :thumbsup:

    Q: Are you a vinyl collector?
    A: Yes, I collect White Albums.
    Q: Do you listen to vinyl records on regular basis?
    A: I listen to the White Album every day.
    Q: You play it every day, non- stop. What are you trying to achieve?
    A: While at Recess, I’m listening to and recording the albums and documenting the covers. The albums I listen to get put up on the “staff picks” wall. At the end of the exhibition, I will press a new double-LP made from all the recordings layered upon each other. It will be like playing a few hundred copies of the White Album at once, each scratched and warped in its own way.

    he is #0000000001 for greatest white album fan ever

    Anyone who listens to Revolution 9 on a daily basis is going to have a screw loose.

    I'm going to do something similar for R.E.M.'s 'Monster'.

    When I lived in Ottawa I remember seeing a cheap copy of The White Album at Legends Records I kind of regret not buying. The original owner had drawn all over the cover but it was actually really good artwork. They had made illustrations for all the songs just like the Cheap Thrills album cover, some of it was pretty funny. If I had a digital camera on me at the time I would have taken a picture.

    That's what I call modern art: ambition without talent. (Yes, Yoko included).

    Those missing 100,000 albums is the revelation of the year, so far. :p

    Q: 2,700,000 to 2,800,000 you have nothing. what happened there?
    A: I’m really not sure, but guessing that maybe these numbers weren’t printed. Or maybe, though statistically unlikely, I just haven’t come across any in this range.
    Q: I’m really curious now. Aren’t you?
    A: Of course I am. I want to buy them.
    Q: I’m sure you can find some answers out there. Maybe talk to some other Beatles collectors?
    A: None of the Beatles freaks I’ve talked to so far know about this. From inspecting the markings on the end-grooves, I see that all my albums in the 2,600,000’s were manufactured in the Capitol Records Los Angeles factory, whereas the albums in the 2,800,000’s were all from the Scranton factory. So maybe some numbers were lost in-between.

    Maybe I'll do a version with copies of Carole King's Tapestry (a tapestry of Tapestry?) or maybe some James Last albums.

    Man, those are some of the crustiest copies of the White Album I have seen. But they have character, don't they? Each one tells a story.
