i imagine there are folk that think scribbling spoils their record. i know. daft thingsx
I used to like all those ones of Darcy's that said 'Dave' and 'fades'.
i've still got jam singles with my name on from taking them to village hall discosx
Me too (school, Fridays).
Had to pop back and tell you that I've just read this in the Morrissey autobiography (P.29), which came in the post today:'These are the days when very few people collect records, so therefore whatever they might buy defines their secret heart. Everyone scratches their name on the paper labels because in the event of the discs being brought to parties it's important that the owner leaves with whatever they arrived with.'
My mum used to write her surname on singles, if the label was black (Motown, Parlaphone) she'd write it on a little piece of paper and stick that on the label. Thing is, she did this when she was a grown up in the 60s. Maybe it was just a teenage habit she didn't grow out of.
I used to write the titles of records on the top of the sleeves of my old soul singles to make for easier finding when browsing. Wish I hadn't now, I spoiled some nice old paper record label sleeves.
