Do you still listen to the old vinyl records?

I used to have some ~ back in the '80s. The funny thing is that I was planning to switch my whole collection over to records ~ because I thought they sounded better than tapes. But then I realized that CDs were here to stay. Sometimes I sell music online & just wondered if there's any demand for the old records? Would appreciate any input you may have.

My husband and I still have a lot of vinyl records, we have ours and some of our parents too. We haven't listened to them in years because we couldn't find a new needle for the turntable. We haven't looked into it in years but we still keep the records for the memories. I have even picked up a few from thrift stores or yard sales just to have them. I've thought about selling ours because we could use the money, I just can't bring myself to do so yet.

Check out recordnerd.com You can trade music there. You may also want to check out some dj sites & forums because a lot of djs are mixing 80s music into techno. We still have a ton of our records - old Duran Duran, Human League, the Cure, the Smiths, Pat Benatar, Camoflauge, Legendary Pink Dots, etc... and we still buy more - mostly hiphop, techno and Tori Amos on vinyl.

The hills are alive with the sound of music. Come on everybody, let's sing a song. But we don't know any song. Let's start at the very beginning A very good place to start When you read you begin with A-B-C When you sing you begin with do-re-mi Do-re-mi Do-re-mi The first three notes just happen to be Do-re-mi Do-re-mi Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti Oh, let's see if I can make it easier Doe, a deer, a female deer Ray, a drop of golden sun Me, a name I call myself Far, a long long way to run Sew, a needle pulling thread La, a note to follow sew Tea, I drink with jam and bread That will bring us back to do...oh oh oh

My husband and I have a huge collection of vinyl records, albums and singles. We still enjoy listening to them, although not as frequently as before. But we've realised that it would cost to much money to change the collection over to Cd's. I know there's not much demand for them in the market. but maybe if you have some uncommon ones or special editions, people may want them!

In my country, the old records are hard to find in CDs. But the old people still want to hear their old song (not just all old people though). So they decided to search the vinyl ones, but it's quite hard because it's rare. But in my city there is a street called Surabaya street. If you ask are there any demand for the old records then you should check surabaya street, everyday there are customers hunting for rare old records, and in surabaya street they all had it in vinyl. I think the market is there, because people still loves old song upon this day.
