PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve said this a few times already and it remains the same as before – I’m not the biggest vinyl collector anymore and its mostly based on the cost of the stuff that I’d like to own. I do still have my KISS records and my Judas Priest ones among many others but so many have long gone away. I like a lot of what is being offered so perhaps I should get a few more hours in at the Metal Media HQ or find one of the readers with philanthropy in mind LOL. I’d love the David Bowie and Ramones exclusives for sure 🙂 Closing up and being serious, which items from Rhino Records are making you scratch your chin in debate? You can let me know down in the comments section below. See you next time.
