My Record Collection by Elephant Stone's Rishi Dhi

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their record collection are. This week, it's the turn of Elephant Stone mainman Rishi Dhi, let's see what he goes for...


The first record I ever bought with my own money was…

"It was Lionel Richie’s 'Can’t Slow Down'. My older brother was way into Michael Jackson at the time, so this was kind of my Han Solo to his Luke."

 

The record that made me want to be in a band was…

"Teenage Fanclub's Bandwagonesque. Hearing 'The Concept' was very much a life-changing experience for me. I love Nirvana, but something about the Fannies really hit me to the core."

 

The record I've played more than any other is…

"I reckon it’s most likely The Beatles' Revolver. So much greatness there…"

 

The record that always makes me feel good is…

"Wow. There are so many records that do this for me. But, if push came to shove, it would have to be The La’s."

 

The record I turn to when I'm feeling down is…

"George Harrison's All Things Must Pass. The title says it all!"

 

The record I think is the most underrated of all time is…

"Another big question! How about Big Star's Third/Sister Lovers”?

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"I mean, how can you not say The Beatles' Sgt Pepper?"

 


The record with my favourite title is…

"For me, Cornershop's When I Was Born For The 7th Time. Genius."

 

The record I can't understand why everybody loves is…

"Where to begin: How about anything by Drake?"

 

The last record I bought was…

"It was actually Thom Yorke's Anima."


The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2020 is…

"Elephant Stone's Hollow. Hahahahaha..."

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"It's anything from the Beatles, but I’ll go with The White Album as there’s so much music on it!"
