I had quite the collection, too: Simon and Garfunkel, Dolly Parton, Madonna, Disney, The Bee Gees, etc... Yes, my tastes were all over the place, but that was the kind of person I was.
The kind of person I still am.
A lot of my collection came from relatives that had passed on. Records I enjoyed because they had once enjoyed them. Good memories.
Merry Christmas to me!
But, what's a record player without records? Exactly.
And so began my journey to start a new collection.
I'm jumping into a "new" old world, going to record stores and thumbing through racks and racks of albums like I once used to, years and years ago.
It's all new to me, but in a very familiar way.
