Happy Christmas!

How retro can one get....I received a record player for the vinyl albums and singles which have sat in a box for the past 15 years. I am delighted! Yazoo (Upstairs At Eric's) is currently playing and although the sound quality is not the best, I am indeed a happy bunny. No1 son is fascinated having never played vinyl discs before and I have had to explain how the discs are made and the sound comes out of the groove. I've had all sorts of singles playing, from 60's Bluebeat through 70's disco and electropop, plus some dreadful stuff (Chas 'n' Dave anyone?) which I found mouldering away amongst the goodies. Even an old 'Springfields' single from 1961.
Lots of old Bowie albums from the seventies; Split Enz; Cocteau Twins; Joe Jackson; Siouxie and the Banshees...I feel like a teenager again even if I do look like an old bugger.

What d'ya mean she's intense?

More red wine and a rosy hued trip down memory lane.

Are we the same age? We certainly seem to share a taste in music. Remember Prudence, Dear

Happy Christmas, Del x

All my vinyl is still boxed up, somewhere in a house not too far from where you are, but currently buried somewhere until the folks finish work on the house. I'm looking forward to a similar adventure early next year

It's been a helter skelter recently but I am still basking in my rediscovery of vinyl.

CP - I was 16...just...when punk exploded.
Tunnelling towards vinyl stash in neighbouring house...

You've got a few years on me then, probably. I always did like playing with the older boys x
