Platter

Last year when I was essentially unemployed, I kept myself busy by copying this collection into digital format.  I've got about 50 left to convert.




And for a special bonus, behind the cut is one of my favorite rediscoveries:



Why yes, that is the Bing Crosby and David Bowie duet of Little Drummer Boy picture disk.

OMG SQUEE.

I have to get a new turntable to finish digitizing my analog music; my old one plays records a bit too fast (just enough so that I notice the tempo isn't right), and it costs just as much to have them fixed as to get a new one.

And that picture disc, AWESOME. I should have thought of this myself!
Isn't that single great? I was torn though, because I also have a bunch of first pressings of classic jazz recordings which were my dad's, and Dave Brubeck used to get his records pressed in colored vinyl a lot. There's purple and red and yellow, I think.
I had a BUNCH of colored vinyl; alas, it was not as sturdy as black and I wore out (or ruined) several, including my Beatles' Red Album and Elvis' Moody Blue (both of which I have on CD now, but still have those old ruined colored vinyls stored away!) -- but a number of picture discs I had (and still have!) I got after I understood how to better care for vinyl records, and they are safe, safe, safe, in their paper inner sleeves in their cardboard outer sleeves in their mylar slip covers...

So. Cool.
Heh, sitting here smirking now.
