Remember 33-1/3 records? The full albums? YesSongs, Steve Miller Anthology, Dark Side of the Moon?
Remember going out and spending $8-$15 dollars on a new album (when $8 to 15 was a days work) and taking it home, calling your friends and all of you sitting down to listen to the whole thing? Remember the pleasure of peeling off the shrink wrap and putting it on the turntable, not sure at all what you would be hearing. Remember dissecting the album and how some of the songs sucked at first and after a bit the grew on you and then became your favorites.
I kinda miss that. Maybe a turntable is in order.
