Mainly made as a utility site for record collectors, Gripsweat tracks and catalogs vinyl record auctions. This is handy for pricing finds or for determining some ballpark at "rarity" and desirability. My favorite part of the site (and something that I think the non-record nerd might like) is the sound clips. I've killed hours just clicking through sound clips to find 45s and LPs that probably otherwise would have slipped past me. This is especially nice for "deep" genres like afrobeat, turkish, rocksteady, garage, disco, etc. [more inside]
These are all records I collected for my old Canadian music audioblog Five Bucks On By-Tor. I'm not posting to that site any more, and many of these records have been carted back to the thrift store, but I thought it would be nice to have photos of them all in one place.
