Album covers from my high school years . . . .

 I wish I still had all my old vinyl. The downside of getting old – CD covers are not as enjoyable as vinyl jackets.

And yep, I had all of them . . . .


  1. I gave away my vinyl collection and my turntable when I moved to England in 1990, which was a shame.

    I’ve noticed that vinyl has been making a small comeback, but I wonder why people would want them anymore (other than for the album covers).

  3. They used to make cds from vinyl? Didn’t it melt under the laser?

  6. You brought back a few memories here buddy.
    I’m off now to look for my skin-tight pair of hip huggers.
    The only album I wasn’t familiar with at all was “It’s a beautiful day”, though I did like “White Bird”

  7. I have come to the horrible realization that you are younger than I am.

    I prolly saw Heart about 6 times. They loved Whateverpeg and I loved Nancy.

  13. […] Back in the late 70’s and early 80’s I was gigging on a regular basis. (gigging = playing music i.e., weddings, night clubs, festivals, frat parties) For a working musician, the times were good. Actually, that’s wrong, they were the best. Although things have changed dramatically and DJ’s continue to unjustly monopolize the wedding industry I still have rather fond memories of the good old days. I read this short post at FFE’s blog and the wheels began turning. […]
