Steve and I never dumped our record collection. Even after the last needle for the old college turntable died. We've just kept them on the shelf. Even my old Bat Out of Hell album. We're just that type of people. I love the large art format of the albums and hand written liner notes and even album sleeves.
Steve's Christmas present this year was a turntable with a USB port. He's super happy, because now he can upload his old Beatles albums and Bob Newhart albums. He spent the tail end of the Christmas vacation happily listening to Magical Mystery Tour and yelling at the kids for jumping around next to the turntable. "They just don't understand analog", he grumbled.
