Posted on March 10 2020

Our next record collection feature is from Pittsburgh, in the home of collector Scotland H. Scot uses a set of 6 panel A-Z Stencil Dividers in his collection of 442 records, and shares,  "Hi! I'm an enneagram 3, INFJ, proud husband & father, health communicator, photographer & donut lover. I share my record collection at @huberturntable & share life's big & small moments on".

Read on and take a peek into his collection!

How do you organize your collection?
Alphabetical by last name - each artist's releases in chronological order by original release date - all genres together EXCEPT: Classical & Jazz separate.

What album/artist are you listening to right now?
I'm in a deep groove of Khruangbin right now and I don't think I need ever get out

How does listening to records make you feel?
There is something therapeutic about putting on a record. I love how much it requires of you as a listener. You can't just sit idly by. It's also so much more communal thanks to its large physical nature and how we play the albums. Plus I love the experience of looking through the collection, enjoying the album art and inserts.

How long have you been collecting records?
8 years - some music I wanted to listen to only had a vinyl release and then it was all downhill from there.

Favorite music genre (or favorite artist) in your collection:  
Favorite artist is Wilco. Hands down. 21 records (27 if you count Tweedy's solo material)

Best album to listen to when you’ve had a rough week:
I can't pick just one, but it'd be a good bet it's either a The National or a Bahamas album.

Last record you purchased:
Bonny Light Horseman by Bonny Light Horseman

What is your beverage of choice when listening to records?

Mornings: Counter Culture Coffee | Evenings: the juiciest New England IPA I can get my hands on. 

Where do you hunt for vinyl?
Pittsburgh spots: Attic Records and The Government Center 

Anything else you'd like to share about your record collection/ or hifi setup?
We have a designated dance space in front of the record player for our kiddos to enjoy the tunes, and I think they are almost bigger of fans of the music than we are at this point.
