Nostalgia for the music lover - Vinyl Records
Our albums, in alphabetical order of course!
Once upon a time, there were record albums.......
We recently unearthed our album collection (vinyl, with pops and scratches) and found ourselves transported back into time. With over 500 albums, the music covers many genres and several decades. We have classical, 1960s rock, gospel, and the original songs from the 1950s Mickey Mouse Club.
Each album has a memory. The 1st Peter, Paul and Mary album was purchased in 1963 and has "A Soilin". one of my favorite Christmas songs. My husband pulled out Todd Rungrun and went back in time to the concert he attended.
Music, regardless of genre, speaks to us in a very personal way. For the music lovers who may have all the CDs and DVDs, there still might be a longing for an album or two and places to revisit. There is nothing quite like taking the album from the sleeve, putting it on the turntable and adjusting the tone arm.

Vinyl is still a great gift
It is a shame that vinyl records have disappeared. For someone who misses the feel of the vinyl and the music that they provided, this is to let you know that they are still out there. Take a look around, there is something for every one.
This is one of my albums. This is really a way-back machine
Mickey Mouse Club - 45 RPM
We are the Merry Mouseketeers (Mouseketeers!)
We've got a lot above our ears (above our ears!)
The talent given to you and me
We must develop faithfully
So we can be good Mouseketeers
As we continue through the years (through the years!)
We won't forget the Mouseketeers (Mouseketeers!)
Hep! Two! Three! Four! Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!
Cheers for the Merry Mouseketeers (Mouseketeers!)
The album must have been played a lot when my brother and I were young. It has more than its share of pops and clicks. Still, I put it on once in a while to be transported back to a time when life was simple and the world seemed like a brighter place.
The best record player on the market
This is a quality turntable that reproduces great sound for the mono and stereo records. I kept hoping it would break so I could replace it with the Teac turntable that also records albums to CD. Unfortunately, it is well made and we have yet to have a problem with it. I find that the price is just right and it would make a great gift for a music lover who still has or wants to play vinyl records. It also plays our 45's. Fortunately for us, someone gave us the Teac as a gift so now we have both.
This is my grandson's favorite Beatles song
Just got this
Recording the records to CD is a snap and we are sharing them with family and friends. This is so easy, my husband can do it and that's saying a lot! If you have albums to record, this is the way to go.
Read my over-enthusiastic review of the Teac
- Vinyl to CD - Teac Recorder
700 albums, needed a way to update them to CD's. The Teac was my best option.
Born to be wild - Steppenwolf
Our tastes are pretty eclectic so we need a little psychedelic in there somewhere. We have this on vinyl.
This was long before the commercial on TV today that uses it to show that us older folks can still rock out. It was used on the soundtrack for "Easy Rider" and we were born to be wild long before we became senior citizens.
Beethoven's 9th Symphony

It doesn't get any better than this. Put the record on, turn out the lights and let the music take you away.
