Looks like my old record collection. I love this take on the theme. Happy weekend.

Puss-in-Boots said...

Ah yes, that's from my vintage, too, Liz. Good old records.

jmb said...

Mine are all long gone now. I love CDs, so much easier and have even bought some of my old vinyl records on CD.

Good choice for the theme. Have a good weekend Liz.

Those take me back all right. In fact I can remember exactly where I first heard all the early Beatles records, they were so mind-blowing. And in those days, you expected rock bands to be done and dusted by their twenties. The idea of Paul still happily gigging in his sixties was inconceivable.

Carin said...

Your picture brings back memories. We gave all plastic discs away when we got rid of our old disc-player.

RJ Flamingo said...

Um, what are those? NO, just kidding! :-) Definitely my era and speed, too!

Thanks for visiting!

All ours went to assist with our move to the island. No electricity - but I did copy a great deal on to cassette. A good choice.

I once had a collection of these, but have exchanged it for CD/DVDs played on my computers. I've seen the era from 78s to 33-1/3s

Oh...the old records! My parents have their collection...

YTSL said...

Oh, yeah, vinyl's plastic, isn't it? Amazing as I tend to think of plastic as being generally not very breakable but records can seem so easily scratchable, etc.!

Sandra said...

Oh yes the memories, great choice! I still have quite a collection, including Elvis's first album, just hate to part with them.

julie said...

Laura said...

Happy weekend!

Colin Campbell said...

Tara R. said...

CherryPie said...

Such a lovely idea for the theme :-)

ancient one said...

jam said...

Those disc are considered rare nowadays.

napaboaniya said...

These records brings back memories long before CDs came into our life :)

nick said...

The records themselves were a bit of a pain of course, what with having to wipe the dust off and the music repeating itself when the needle got stuck. Thank God for CDs.

MissKris said...

I LOVE the Beatles! Did I ever tell you I saw George Harrison once?? Back in 1965 when they were here in Portland, OR.

Kim said...

PERFECT! I love what you came up with. So clever. Great photo.

I can't believe that some one else besides me still has some records!

I played too! I'm just running behind in visiting others. Come on over.

Have a wonderful weekend!

jams o donnell said...

Great choice Liz. I am not a big Beatles fan but I do love my old vinyl!

Rose said...

Ah, the good old days. I still have some of my old albums, but I think they may have gotten a little warped over the years:)
