My Obsession

Deary me.  First I find several boxes of albums (of the vinyl variety) in my basement. Then I find a compact turntable online. Boom. 1 + 1 = obsessed.

I've been bringing albums up all day and playing them. All dayeeeee! Thank goodness my brothers taught me, early on, how to take care of and keep the records clean. They are all, well mostly, in great shape. A little dusty in some grooves, but with a little cleaning, voila, beautiful sound. That's even after being stored in attics, basements and garages for over 25 years!

This is my first day's worth that I'm airing out (and did I mention PLAY??!). Ha. I'm having way too much fun with these.

The weather has been nice, so the doors have been thrown open all day.

The basement is coming along.I have been through every single box down there, thrown 2/3s out and now have the dastardly deed of really organizing. Like for the first time in my life!  Yay for me!

I understand your obssession! Vinyls sound a lot better than CD's and last longer.

Yay for you is right! Lots of work, but lots of fun, too!

Sounds like a wonderful day -- how fun is all that! Talk about a walk down memory lane!

Oh boy, I see some good ones in there. There's just something about Bob Marley that sets a day right. I love reggae, and you know I love the Stones. Lou Reed, haven't listened to him in a long time. And there's Mr. Zappa, I have to say I wasn't a big fan of his in the old days, but I should give him another listen.

We were just talking about a wonderful Eric Clapton album at our house, 'cause my nephew is learning how to play "Bellbottom Blues". I remember the album with that tune, and Layla, was hard to find for awhile, then, it was rereleased. I think lots of younger people are just now discovering some of these guys, and learning to appreciate "our music". It's sort of nice to have that in common.
