More Vinyl

Shanna and I had an enjoyable trip to Half Price Books this evening. It was our bi-weekly, payday weekend date night to browse their wide assortment of vinyl records. For those who don't know, my wife got me a record player as an early birthday present this year. We are slowly growing our collection of vinyl albums.

Today's finds include:
* Verdi's Requim
* Showboat
* Bing Crosby: A Musical Autobiography
* Louis Armstrong: Hello, Louis!

Add these to the Creedence Clearwater Revival, Perry Komo, Beatles, and U2 we have found in past excavations and our small collection is becoming quite eclectic. Our favorite find is still the U2: Joshua Tree album still new in the shrink wrap. It's definitely fun browsing through our culture's musical history.

Any other vinyl collectors out there? If so, I'd love to hear about some of your finds.

Do mom and dad still have their records I wonder?

They think they do somewhere and are going to try to find them. They found one box in the garage that may have belonged to Aunt Jane... she seemed to be a big fan of John Denver :o)
