Music_mota_beer,
If I may be so bold...
With that many records destroyed, what catastrophe brought this unfortunate situation to bare?
I hope this isn't opening old wounds.

I had two water damaging episodes in the mid 90s (frozen pipes) and had to cull many cherished record covers but the vinyl was still serviceable.
I've been lucky since.
Thank you for your question.
Unfortunately, the two-year old wounds are far too fresh, and I cannot use the keyboard with my eyes full of tears.


Def Leppard, On through the Night, 1980.
Rock.

Guitar Speak, 1988, from CD.
I've no idea whose CD this was copied from.
Further, I should not have copied it.
Yes, it's a Memorex MRXI normal bias/eq tape, and it sounds excellent.
Guitar prog rock.

MX-80 Sound, Hard Attack, 1977, English release.

This is the first time playing this record. It was bought sometime before December 1978.
Post-punk.
The above is obviously wrong as can be seen by the below image.


The Pirates, Out of their Skulls, live, 1977, English release.
This record is on the original list.
Rock and roll with lots of guitar and without slow songs or love songs.

Edit: This record was digitized, and my editing cut out all the intros, and thank yous, and was made gapless. It sounds so different, and faster. Gapless playback rules!

Ramones.
This appears to be a mix tape of sorts. The track listing doesn't follow any of the three records I had at the time.
Further, the tape label alludes to a Bang & Olufsen Beocenter 2200 at a time I was at uni. Must mean the tape was recorded on the B&O.
Although the Beocenter was gifted, the check I cut remains.
Punk.

Rainbow, Down to Earth, 1979.
The tape label says this was recorded on my Nakamichi 670ZX cassette deck from a Nakamichi 250 cassette player on Sept. 7, 1992.
I can hear record noise. Cool.
Prog rock.

Gotta love record noise on cassette recordings =D> Plus, a Nak to Nak recording is practically identical; its very difficult to tell which is the previous generation tape, specially if the recording is done on an auto azimuth adjusting deck like the 670 ZX beast you have 8) I have one myself and am constantly surprised at just how darn good it is =D>
