    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!

    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...
