No. Im not saying one should have only 1 block plane, rather all of them should be LA, and bevels ground at higher angles when needed. I have 6,1 is std angle stanley and 1 is a 45* bd woodie. The steeper angle bp’s rarely get used, LA ones get used all the time. If the record is your only other bp keep it. Mine stay setup for different uses.

Good point on keeping other block planes set up for specific uses. My regular Record is 9 1/2. Besides cleaning out my plane till, I’m trying to resist buying the Veritas Standard block plane. With the 20 degree bed and a 50 degree blade, I could get a higher angle than I could with the LA version. I don’t know if such an angle would be of any use, however.
