For as long as I can remember, music has been my passion.
This site, all about vinyl records, reflects that passion for collecting vinyl records and albums.
I'll share with you the album content, the artists, their music, song lyrics, and why I believe vinyl albums are such a great piece of history to own.
I grew up in the fifties and sixties when Doo-Wop was at its peak.
Fifty years later I still enjoy listening to Doo-Wop, Classic Rock, Country, Rockabilly and many other styles of music.
So...If you're a vinyl cover lover come on in, grab your favorite beverage, and pull up a chair...This could take a while.
An absolute time capsule of Rock-n-roll. This session featuring Eric Clapton in small group format with original guitarist Scotty Moore is simply "priceless."
Here is where you can step back in time and relive old memories and where you were when these classic records were playing.
Sock hops, Friday night Cruisin' and those cool cars.
Remember the sock hops, school dances, American Bandstand, Friday night cruisin' and Drive-in movies. All these old memories will come to life as you read about and play the cool oldies music on these pages.
I'll cover my three favorite decades, the 50's, 60's and 70's when the golden age of vinyl records was at its peak. So close your eyes and come with me on a trip down memory lane.
To a place where cool 45's and LP albums were a part of life no one in today's digital world could fully understand.
A time when both classic rock albums and classic country albums were something you could hold in both hands, enjoy the picture art work, and read all the information about your favorite artist.
Hard to do on a 5 inch by 5 inch CD.
Some double albums have photo's you can frame, and many have several pages of written information about the artist or band. Look for my cool page on the Little Deuce Coupe album.
The vinyl cover lovers and Hot Rod fans will certainly enjoy this page and the Little Deuce Coupe video
Classic Doo-wop groups from the past.
Remember how it all started with the classic street corner groups? Doo-wop was one of the most mainstream, pop-oriented R&B styles of the time. Now you can read how it all started, all the cool facts and watch videos at the same time.
Some groups and songs I write about I never heard when I was young, but what a neat discovery to hear some of these timeless oldies from talented Doo-wop groups you no longer hear on the radio. These pages will bring them all back so you can relive your favorite memories.
So let me share with you...
...and a whole lot more!
