I wish I was knowledgeable enough to run a website purely about records themselves, but I believe there's much bigger and better websites out in cyberspace that cater for the completist record fiend.

Plus there are some serious collectors that put my vinyl knowledge to shame so I ain't even gonna try and step on their toes. One site that is sure to become another must check for the groove-addicted like myself is I DIG PGH.
I DIG PGH is the brainchild of JAY MALLS (you will remember his KOOL AID mix we dropped here last June) and it documents his search for all things in relation to Pittsburgh's recorded musical history.
As Jay says himself...

"I DIG PGH is an initiative to research, document and examine the history of Pittsburgh's recording industry, or lack thereof as some would think. This project specifically focuses on vinyl records, the primary medium for commercial music reproduction for the majority of the 20th century. A record is just what its name implies, a form of documentation. In addition to documenting these cultural artifacts, this project shares the insights of the individuals involved pertaining to their experiences in the local recording and entertainment industries. This is an attempt to add another dimension to Pittsburgh's already-rich cultural heritage."
