    My Record Collection

    I collect Vinyl records.  Everyone make fun of me for this, I get called a hippie or some will say " the 70's are dead"!  There is one person who understands my excitement and need for vinyl... you know who you are!

    I Love Records, Too!

    Started In 1964

    My collection started in 1964 and I still have those records (and hundreds of others). My first two albums were The Searchers "Meet The Searchers" and The Dave Clark Five "Glad All Over". The reason I didn't get any Beatles albums? My sister was getting them! I added them later...

    The Crown Jewel Of My Collection

    I have a few real winners in my collection of 33's, 45's and 78's...but the best is "Meet the Beatles". That album plays well still and is in great condition. I enjoy my collection greatly and add to it when I can. We still listen to Christmas music on vinyl every year as well...
