    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...

    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!

    The phonograph was invented in 1878, it's been around for a long time and they're still making them here and there. Even Lady Gaga's new album is on vinyl! What would DJs of today do without records? The Compact Disc came out in the mid 1980s, and it's already dead, so the...
