If I would have known, I would have opened the door to where they are resting and given them a special greeting and wished them a good day.
No I wouldn't. I'm just saying that here.
I used to play mine all the time. I never bought one that I intended on keeping just for the purpose of reselling. I played some until I thought I wore them out.
On a bad note - I had a skip on Roll Over Beethoven- that when I heard it on a good by vinyl record - it sounded strange to me.
I used to try and figure out songs and had to be careful to find the right spot to put the record player arm down.
Now you can find the digital area quick and repeat easily. There was a cool thing about the vinyl album experience from removing it. Putting it on the turn table - on some - watching it click and drop with the arm holding the needle dropped and went a few grooves around and then the sound ... looking at a big cover and all that may have come with it ... or a 45 with an insert or something on the turntable ... there was an experience with vinyl that sounds clumsy to explain to someone who has not played anything this way ... like I am explaining a rotary phone and a cord to the wall or it mounted to the wall.
oh well, .... Happy Beatleated vinyl Day.
