    its funny that we are talking about this because I just got laced with a box of 45s yesterday.

    And this brings me to my next thing....

    Part of the reason why I also do some e-digging is because I have some dope records with scratches in the best parts. That shit is frustrating as hell. I just grab the MP3 version of the album online for backup.

    I also agree with Tony. But the way I see it, either diggers embrace doing the knowledge or get lost. Either way, its no sweat off anyone's back but theirs. Most e-digging cats dont even know who to dig for or even know HOW to dig efficiently.

    A lot of truth in this post. I copped Idris Muhammad's "Power of Soul" album for .75, and you know that album came out with 3 different album covers and hard as hell to find on wax. And it was on the CTI label that went out of print in the 70's. You can find the cd easily but wax not as much.

    But when you out digging you find some gems and I've copped some unknown shit just by looking at a crazy cover and it had some musical gems on the album. I've spent up to 4 hours in a record store digging, chopping it up with other dj's that come through. We brainstorm and exchange info while we digging, and like my man said how he met Q-Tip digging, that's some cool shit because he is a crate digger.

    And like Tony my shit is sitting pretty too, got insurance on my shit, I even have this in my collection, and it's not a repress either

    Bam! You just said a mouthfull then. And they not even really sampling, they just looping a chorus instead of different parts of a song

    Man that album is the shit, the first song on there is a Kool G Rap sample. I also got the one with "Crabapple" on there. I found mines in a resale shop on Stony Island for a buck. I was looking for something else, never even knew who he was, I was in my mid 20's. I just bought it off a whim and did'nt realize I had a classic hard to obtain record. I got the yellow cover, my boy Gary got the black one and this cat Kareem got the red cover.

    I have way more than that, they're in the basement, and it's 9 crates to the left of that. So I have been working on my collection homie. And plus they doing that for a living, you supposed to have a lot of records like that. I've seen Pete Rocks, Jermaine Dupri, Jazzy Jeffs, those cats make my shit look puny.
