This man has 30,000 LPs in his collection, watch his story

This week, popular vinyl enthusiast Jake Kapusta on his Vinyl Hunters YouTube channel, spoke to one of London’s most legendary vinyl collectors, Barry Winton.

Jake, who’s record shopping antics with side kick Poppa Dave have been gradually gaining more views and followers, spent the day following renowned vinyl boffin Winton as he made his usual circuit around some of London’s finer record stores.

The day culminated in Jake being offered the rare opportunity to view this mammoth collection back at Barry’s London home.

Winton, who has been collecting records from he was a child, had the great fortune down through his many years as a writer and collector of music, to frequent the company of music icons such as Lemmy, Atomic Rooster, Amy Winehouse and Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page. He has also written books on record label history and collectors encyclopedias.

Watch this interesting insight into the lifetime of dedicated record collector.
