A viewing record collection is the looking into someone’s soul
A record collection is something very close to a person’s heart that reveals a lot about the person. Unlike collections on digital format, a collection is very visible and provides a good insight into the owner.
Buying a record is an emotional act. There is the visit to the store or the market, the process of flicking through a range of records, examining the sleeve and then purchasing the record. This is a very considered act that explicitly has a strong sense of ownership attached.
As a result of this emotional link between a person and their record collection, looking at someone’s collection reveals their innermost secrets.
