The guy at the coffee shop. The record store crowd. Your coworker. That kid who found out you're into vinyl and won't stop talking to you about it. If you collect music of any kind, you are constantly getting recommendations for new bands and albums to check out.
This is, of course, a very good thing: there's a lot out there to discover, and the next thoughtfully personal recommendation could be how you find your new favorite band.
But even the most detailed of lists and online databases can't handle all the important context, details, and anecdotes that make collecting and talking about music so enjoyable. Without a way to organize all this information, it's too easy to lose track of what you're looking for and what you already have--and how those forgotten titles made it onto your list to begin with.
With The Record Collector's Journal, you can keep track of the albums and artists you're looking for right alongside the reasons you're looking. You'll never forget why a record is on your radar, where you heard it, or what you thought of it. Over time, as your collection grows and your journal expands, you'll build a functional, highly customized index of players that will branch into exciting new areas as you find new favorites to follow and recordings to acquire.
Never again will you pass up the find of a lifetime simply because you forgot why you were looking for it. You'll never lose track of your growing inventory--or how your favorite artists relate to each other within it. And you'll always, always have something to add to the conversation the next time you're at the record store.
