the kompaktkiste discography pages show first hand info and pictures scanned from the original record or cd.
the vast majority comes from my own humble collection, many records i have also borrowed from friends.
some very few diligent contributors have sent details & pictures of previously missing releases.
well, currently i do it all on my own here. no joke.
you're always more than welcome to help as a supporter or even donate!
you: > Uhm, would you like to write a short text about yourself > why you started to collect records. who you are and all that? me: "hello, my name is wolf, and i collect records." anonymous collectors group: "hello, wolf." in real life i have maybe a handful people who can remotely relate to my musical tastes. lots of friends say 'you listen to this weird music just to be different' but that misses my point completely of course, and doesn't count when said by people who are satisfied with generic mass media crap. situation is totally different in today's online world, lots of likeminded virtual friends around! best thing though is to meet those in real life someday. since i started buying records in the late seventies my main intention was always to 'get the whole picture' of artists i liked. i assume few teenagers had amassed like 80+ tangerine dream lp's. maybe one needs a collecting gene for that, i sure have one, or two. too bad i sold almost all of my vinyl records when that cd thing started. but then who can afford to get all those new releases without letting some olders go. though it's nice to have a wall of sound which fortunately combines the collecting habit with loads of good music, it is the insatiable urge for more new music that drives me. ps. full props to all those excellent netlabels out there!
let me know what you want to know... well... ummm yea. i might even start to fill this page with stuff, one day...
