    The only albums I own from your list is AC/DC Highway to Hell and The Doors Strange Days. Can't believe Duran Duran Rio Suspect is in that mix. Did you have a girlfriend in the early 80's that bought that for you or something? Or did you go all 'new romantic' on your own?

    Got a bunch from my brother's second exwifes albums in the late 80's. She had left and he didn't want them so I snatched them up. Knew vinyl was going out. Those ain't so bad tho. Bout 20 years ago my elderly neighbors were having a yard sale as they were getting ready to move into assisted living. They had a big stack of records and at the end of the day nobody wanted them so I gave em 5 bucks. Mostly classical and other shit including a four album set of Lawrence Welk. Don't know if that one is going to get recorded tho.

    My little old component style Panasonic boom box that sits on my desk in the furnace room in the basement of my house had its CD player take the dirt nap months ago. So the FM radio still works but I've got my stack of "Mongrel's 100 Greatest CDs" standing idle excerpt for a few that make it into the car. I thought that Santa Claus would get me a new one but that fat fucque neglected to bring it here. But he did prod the Old Lady into permitting me to go buy another guitar amp after she figured out that she had no idea what I wanted. And I didn't either and had to go try a bunch before I found The One which I did and it came home with me. It has tubes (which the Brits and their colonists call "valves") and I've been having loads of fun playing through it and deciding how I'll modify it.

    I'm done with vinyl and have been for over 30 years. My wife has quite a collection that she won't sell. I'll be damned if I'm going to go get a turntable and stereo amp to listen to any of them however good they may be.

    I had that Doors record too. If I had the money I spent on cocaine used listening to Police records in the 1980's, I could buy a decent used Porsche or Ducati. Re: the Police...... Hands up. Don't shoot.

    Cocaine and the 80's (big disappointed). Sure was a lot of fun. Glad I made it through that phase! Cool

    I have bookshelves full of vinyl and a functioning turntable in my system, but I can't remember when I last played them. I haven't been on a music kick lately

    Listened to a lot of songs I haven't heard in ages by listening to the whole album instead of just cherry picking songs.

    Yeah this is a really good point. The old vinyls we just played through from start to finish. Then CD's gave us the opportunity to select or programme only the songs you liked. But at least you still bought the whole album. I used to cherry pick songs all the time but occasionally I'd get sick of listening to the same old songs and just let the albums play through. Suddenly you'd realise that songs that you didn't like much initially are actually pretty good and they became the new favorites. These days kids just buy individual songs off iTunes. I think they're definitely missing something.

    In 2002 I went out to hear some live music about 10 miles from my house. I don't go out at night much but wanted to see this hot young slide player named Derek Trucks that all the guitar slingers were talking about. So I go by myself and stake out a spot on the floor about twenty feet from the right third of the stage and basically stayed glued to the floor for an hour just mesmerized by the young player whose uncle, Butch Trucks, was one of the Allmans' drummers. Derek wasn't even born when Duane died by I swear by everything Holy that Derek channeled Duane that night so close that it creeped my out.
