My son came home with a box full of records. A lot of religious ones because the person (horder) was religious, but there were some that made me light up. A couple of Beatle Albums that I remember my sisters having when we were younger. Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass. A couple of Elvis records We separated out the ones we wanted. The religious ones are going bye bye. Not that I have anything against gospel music and if there had been any Andre Crouch in the bunch, I would have snagged it. A lot of Bill Gaither Trio records. We are keeping the religious Elvis one though. The record player is coming tomorrow, which hasn't been used for a long time so it may not work. Told my son its been years since I had to blow the dust off the needle.

As you can see, I approve 100%...not that you need my approval of course, but... I've got 6 turntables (5 working) that have to be hooked to a receiver to use, and a pair of working console stereos...overkill, perhaps.

@myklj999 Unfortunately we discovered one of the Beatles albums is slightly warped on the edge. Not sure it's fixable. Worse part is, it was their first album. Plays okay in the middle though.

We had a bunch of 45 records when I was a kid. My sisters and I used to listen to them all the time.
