Mine aller beste plater

Tar du en utfordring? De stadig mørkere og kalde høstkveldene innbyr til å stupe inn i platesamlingen og plukke ut godbitene mens peisen knitrer om kapp med ei velspilt blues-skive fra det sene 60-tall og duften av nytraktet kaffe fyller huset. Hva om jeg ba deg plukke ut dine aller beste plater, kun basert på personlig smak og platas betydning for nettopp deg. Legg til side all korrekthet og cred, frykt ikke musikkpolitiet. Her er det kun din egen smak som skal avgjøre! Hva sitter du igjen med? Er det noen overraskelser, eller blir lista forutsigbar?

Jeg tok utgangspunkt i min egen LP-samling, og ekskluderte dermed alt av CD’er og singler. Ikke veldig problematisk, da det meste av dette i dag fremstår som fyllstoff. Mine LP-hyller rommer en middels stor samling, ca 2500 plater. Ut av disse ville jeg plukke ut 100 plater som mine absolutte favoritter, eller 4% for å være mattematisk nøyaktig. I første omgang satt jeg igjen med ca 160 plater. Jeg hadde forbydd meg selv å velge mer enn en plate pr band/artist, og dette viste seg å være ganske problemfritt. Jeg brukte en times tid på å velge vek de 60 som ikke kom til finalen, også det en overraskende lett jobb.

Tar du utfordringen med å velge ut dine aller beste plater? Lag dine egne regler for utvelgelse, men begrens deg til maks 5% av egen samling. Har du 100 plater, velger du ut fem. Har du 500, kan du plukke 25. Om det er CD, LP eller 7” spiller ingen rolle. Variasjon er gøy! Om du vil, mailer du lista til meg på morten@rocksirkus.com, så publiserer jeg den i forlengelsen av artikkelen!
