I think I mentioned in a previous post that Blake received a couple of vinyl records for Christmas. After he told me that he had some interest in establishing a collection, I scoured the Ann Arbor record stores for a couple of used gems. Blake was thrilled with his first U2 and Van Morrison LPs, and quickly found a turntable on Craig's List. Thanks to my dad, Blake also secured a receiver and speakers that were sitting idle.
Until yesterday, we'd been listening mostly to one of four records, mostly Elvis actually (which Blake picked up a few weeks ago), because Anna LOVES dancing to Blue Suede Shoes and Jailhouse Rock. We've all been LOVING having this new toy in our home.
Papa and Mo Mox came for a visit last night, and they brought a surprise with them...a small collection of vintage records. Blake and I were beaming. The Eagles, more Elvis, oldies upon oldies upon oldies, even some of my old childhood records. We spent the evening in the basement by the record player, talking with my dad and Jessica, listening to old albums.
Thank you so much, Dad and Jessica, for saving these for so thirty years (or more) and passing them on to us. They will be enjoyed for a lifetime.
Some of my favorites:
|The American Graffiti soundtrack!|
|1979 Neil Diamond|
|These brought back memories.|
