This week’s Vinyl Wednesday post details something that we all have to deal with as vinyl collectors: storage. I’m not talking about huge racks, shelves and IKEA Expedits. No, I’m talking about storage of the awesome flexi-discs that come in the Decibel magazine Flexi-Series. I wrote about these little guys last year (read it here) but never mentioned how I keep them safe from the elements. They don’t come with any jacket or sleeve so what does a person do with them after ripping it from the magazine and obliterating all eardrums within listening distance? That would usually be a conundrum for the common folk but luckily Decibel has thought of a solution for us. They started by granting us the Limited Edition Collector’s Box (now sold out) and in 2014 we got the new Deluxe Edition Collector’s Box (or the Decibox as I call it). This holds all of your audible treasures for at least 2 years worth of issues. Good news for us flexi collectors.

When I started receiving Decibel I managed to get one of the Limited Edition Collector’s Boxes but it quickly filled up. I just started stacking all of my new flexis into the box without sleeves or anything. I was in need of more sleeves and a lot more room to store all the goodies and now with the Deluxe Edition Collector’s Box my cherished tunes have a safe and secure place to lie in wait before unleashing their audio assault.

Screaming For Vengeance is bright, bold and totally kickass. This is mostly a photo post so hit the jump and bask in this album’s glory!
