The turntable

Our home has lately been filled with the warm snap crackle pop of records on the turntable.  What a great Christmas gift.  I've always wanted a record player.  Well, one that was new enough that it wasn't a fire hazard (I owned a little portable player briefly in the late 1990s but its 1960s wiring just scared me).


I raided my parents' album stash years ago.  When the new turntable arrived, we also raided my in-laws' collection.  Add some more vinyl from Fred's, and here is the best-of-the-best of our collection:

Love the old albums, wore out so many, I see some familiar jackets in your pictures ! I agree with Louie, Carole King, Tapestry, one of the best !

For me it's a toss up between Elton John and Simon and Garfunkel in that record pile.
