New(actually old)Record Day. I have been collecting and trading records for most of my life. My first albums were acquired around 1988 when the local library held a book fair and allowed sellers to participate also. This one guy had a table with boxes full of old Rock records for like 25 cents a piece. I think I had gotten an allowance of 5 dollars the Friday before so I racked up. lol. I was 11 and just starting to develop my own musical tastes beyond what I heard my parents listening too. Which was mostly country\southern rock along the lines of Hank Williams to CCR, Lynnard Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers. I can't remember what all I got that day but I do know 2 of them. Queen-News of the world and The Eagles- Greatest hits. From there I was hooked. Anyway. My Uncle who also collects called to ask if I had an old stereo receiver I wasn't using that he could use for listeng to music on his back porch\deck and it just so happens that I did. I had a 300 w Sony reciver that use to be the hub of my home entertainment system but when I moved but I no longer had room for such a big system so. I gave away the big MTX speakers to a freind(3 way speakers with 15 in woofers) but still had the reciever tucked under the bed. So we did a little trade. I got rid of something I haven't used in over 2 years and got some new\used vinyl in exchange. Win win in my book. And no I dont just look at them. I listen to every single record I get. I look at the cover,read the lyrics and always pay attention to the personnel. That is, who's playing what. It's really an experience\ritual that I miss nowadays since everything has gone digital. So I still indulge in old vinyl any chance I get. So I ask do any of you collect lps and what are your favorites?
