The first one I bought will be 52 this year. Some earlier ones, given to me by relatives who's Dansettes had broken, date from the early 50s, and the amount of detail on them, though not so much the sound quality, is impressive. Must take a trip back in time tonight.

Ah yes, 54 years ago I bought "Sugar Lips" by Al Hirt.
I still remember the record shop..."The House of Music" on Chicago's south side. More record bins than room to walk around. Smile
The year was 1964, the maidens fair and the spring air was sweet.

How I got to this point I'll never understand.Rolleyes

Original 1978 Fluted Afromosia LP12, Ekos 2, Lyra Kleos SL and lots of other stuff from the 70's that still work fine.
