I have a fair amount of vinyl but I no longer have a player. I had a large (and awesome) player when I lived on the east coast. My mom was saving it for me but finally had to give it away when she moved.
Yes!!! I love them! I was certain to buy a brilliant sound sysstem which incorporated a very good turntable! I have to say that I do enjoy these treasures/ Manhattan Transfer are probably among the very favourites of all of them! I saw this amazing ensemble at a Dinner Show and I went out the next day to but the remaining albums which I needed to complete my collection of their records.Wow! That was way back in the 70's!! Yet they are as fresh to listen to today as they were all that time ago! Being an artist,I adore the record covers which,with their size,are often such incredible works of art in themselves!
No got rid of them....think they may be making a come-back...one of the younger replyrees (is this a word!) to this question seems to give credence to this..just like those revolting vinyl tabletops and chairs with legs splayed out and vinyl seats are becoming trendy, whereas cause I have been thru that fashion, they look ugly to me! Another is the old fashioned names for kids eg Audrey, Evelyn...though I quite like some of those...
Some people know who hit how many runs in cricket in 1950 etc., some know the history of every horse that ever won a race. My husband was a record collector from his early teens in england. nothing mainstream, always 'different'. Always looking for that 'special' one. I heard and learnt about music I never thought existed, wonderful..
And oh, if you'd had, say, northern soul 45s i perfect condition a few years ago, you could have been paid the deposit for a house, well, nearly.
I have a large collection of records, and a small collection of cassettes have not played them in years I have a record player and cassette player
just not interested in them any longer, they would be at least 50/ 60 years old all in good condition you name it I probable would have it
We still have about 50 LP's left No player though!
We gave some to our eldest daughter & her partner, who now have 300-400 of them, & they also have a player. Our youngest daughter took away about 10 when she last visited, (for 15 minutes,) & she also has a turn table. I had started to make a list of them, but haven't got very far with that. the only present I remember by brother ever buying me was a Shirley Bassy 1. (He moved to another state when he was about 22, & only returned each January, with his family.) My mother had a huge collection, with no tuneable. 1 Christmas my father gave her 25 LP's! When she moved to another house, (after my father passed away,) it was broken into 3 times, & during 1 of those times, the thieves took her record player, & my father's whole collection.
