A few days ago I decided to do some rearranging of things to get ready for the new doors we are getting. In order to give the guys enough space to work I had to move things I haven’t moved in years – our record albums. Yes, we still have our albums, vinyls to those who might not know what albums are.
Looking through them took me back. I had a collection before we got married and Kathy had her own collection as well. Weirdly enough we had only two or three duplicates when we combined our collection.
Even before we met we both enjoyed Broadway. Here is one of my albums.
Here are two of Kathy’s.
This is the only Broadway Show we duplicated probably we cause we saw this together before we were married.
Since we met and dated during the disco era how could we not have at least one album the the reigning Disco Queen?
In a few weeks we are going to see the Broadway show Summer which is based on the life of Donna Summer.
Our collection includes records of the popular artists of the day.
We even have this original.
Of course there were the two male artists that women went crazy over.
Hard to believe this guy turned 83 yesterday.
I have always been a fan of Sonny and Cher.
I couldn’t get enough of Motown, especially these ladies.
What about that Aussie favorite?
We saw Melissa Manchester in concert twice.
It seems that with Barbara you either love her can’t stand her. I love her.
A great duo tragically cut short too soon.
Of course most singers had Christmas albums as well. My collection also has several Christmas albums.
Some albums were strictly instrumental. Who can forger Leroy Anderson’s unique style.
I don’t know why the 101 Strings were so popular, but we have some of their albums as well.
Do you see the price on this one? $1.98. Highway robbery.
I haven’t counted how many albums we have but there are quite a few. This is just a small sample of what we have.
With the CDs it has been a long time since I have listened to any of our records. We still have a turntable and good speakers. Maybe it’s time to start listening and enjoying once again.
