My Record Collection by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's Alec Ounsworth (Vinyl Edition)

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their vinyl record collection are. Step up Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's Alec Ounsworth...

 

The first LP I bought was…

"This was probably Miles Davis's Kind of Blue. I was studying jazz guitar at 12 or 13 and would go very often go to the record store to somewhat blindly pick up CDs and vinyl. In the beginning, I generally had no idea what I was getting but I guess I got lucky with this one..."

 

The LP I’ve played more than any other is...

"This is most likely Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde. An absolute classic."

 

The coolest cover in my collection is...

"I can't look beyond Blonde on Blonde." 

 

The rarest LP I own is…

"The Heavenly Gospel Singers, or maybe John Lennon’s Wedding Album. The Heavenly Gospel album I came upon accidentally at AKA (a record store in Philadelphia,) and it remains pretty important to me. John Lennon’s album was a wedding gift."

 

The strangest LP I own is...

"Hasil Adkins’ Out to Hunch. I imagine the rawness of his performances on this album might sonically translate elsewhere but I doubt it."

 

The last LP I bought was…

"Bobby Charles’ Bobby Charles, Professor Longhair’s Crawfish Fiesta, Dr. John Plays Mac Rebennack, and a few others. I bought these and other albums a little while ago at a store in New Orleans."

 

The LP I can’t wait to purchase is...

"Gilberto Gil’s Frevo Rasgado or Velvet Underground’s Sweet Sister Ray double LP. I tried to bid on the latter years ago but it didn’t work out."

 

My most treasured LP is…

"Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan. It was my parents and one of the first albums I ever heard on vinyl. It made an enormous impact on my 9-year-old mind."

 

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's new album The Tourist is out now and available here in hmv's online store.
