One of the great things about clearing out a house is all the items that come to light after being hidden away in an attic too long. I vaguely remembered keeping some of my old vinyl LPs from my teen years but hadn't realised husband and I had three record cases full of them. I even discovered half a dozen singles I didn't know I'd kept!
We've now whittled it down to one case and I've had great fun looking through my collection - they're mostly mine along with several old classical LPs that once belonged to my father-in-law. Rock Around the Clock is husband's and we both bought the Gilbert O'Sullivan after we were married as well as Kate Bush, but The Sound of Music, South Pacific, Mantovani, Zorba the Greek, Strauss, The Nutcracker and The Flower Garden are all mine, amongst others!
These are only a selection of what we've kept and I fully intend buying a retro-style record player at some point so we can listen to them again. Evidently vinyl is becoming ever more popular and I heard a radio programme where they were discussing the better quality of records over CDs. I'm not worried about that as I won't be giving up listening to all my CDs any time soon, but it will be great fun playing these old records again one day. And I'm sure at least one story is percolating in the back of my mind.
