  •  I still have my LP's and two cute cases of 45's. (3+ / 0-)

    For the life of me, I cannot remember the first 45 I bought;
    I'd have to go through them and put them in order by copyright date.  But what a trip down memory lane that would be!!

    CD's are wonderful, but there is something about the originals that nothing can touch.  I'm sure I still have a few old 78's that were made of some other material that is no longer made, either!  

    You just never know what you're going to trip over on a Friday night around here!

      I no longer remember the first 45 I bought, but I do know I have one 45 (minus the paper cover) of a Beatles song with the Green Apple label.  Long time ago I read/heard the Green Apple label vinyl records were worth money if one still had the original jacket (which I don't).  I don't care.  It's mine, mine all mine!

      Yup.  I have two cases of 45's, too, plus enough LPs that there are too many for the old entertainment stand to hold, so some are in boxes.

      I also have a collection of cassettes and shelves and an entertainment cabinet with storage space inside for my CDs, VHSs, CDs, and DVDs.  I don't think I have any 78s in among those.  If I do, I've forgotten.

      All together, I have a nice little eclectic collection of various kinds of media for different kinds of entertainment and music styles.

      When I'm doing genealogy research I often listen to instrumental music (so words don't mess up my search terms!) on Pandora.  They do have a nice collection of cheerful Celtic music.  I have quite a lot of both Celtic groups and artists plus other music channels selected on Pandora for other listening pleasure, too.

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor

        ( they must have played Frisbee with the dog with?) but Monster Mash survived.  My 1st bought were Snoopy & the Red Barron, next Wendy. My taste improved dramatically shortly after that.

        •  Like Nonny, I have very eclectic tastes in music.. (2+ / 0-)

          but like you, I also own a few 45's that I am rueful to admit belong to me!

          Sugar, Sugar
          Yummy, Yummy

          They didn't call it bubblegum music for nothing, I suspect.  But I also own most of the Beatles and a nice collection of classical, including opera.

          My tastes have......mellowed.  But they are still eclectic.
