Don't feel bad brother, I don't listen to too much of it either. I believe it comes from back in the day whenever my Mom and Dad listened to every country and Elvis LP on that, what do you call it, the all-in-one self contained Magnavox or whatever it was unit. Wow, I just remembered ... The Chipmunk's singing Christmas song LP. The old memory bank is really trying to remember now.

My parents had that vinyl when I was a kid. I remember the record was translucent red instead of the typical black.

Rick, don't you mean "Victrola"?

Just joshing. My Mom still has (and loves) a Sylvania console stereo made of real wood. You open the top and there is a record player and a tuner with a bunch of scratchy analog knobs. I've often toyed with the idea of rebuilding it from the inside out. She seems to like the form factor (God knows why), so I could drop a little receiver and a new turntable in there and rebuild the speakers. It could be kind of cool.

But I'm lazy, so I bought her a Sony boombox and am converting all her Polka LP's to CD.

The first option probably would have been more enjoyable, in retrospect.

Last night I was listening to Keb' Mo's self-titled CD. I would recommend it if you like great vocals and blues guitar. This CD was also recorded very well.

Edguy - Rocket Ride (New) If you like harder stuff................go get it! Great CD and for once a metal CD that is mastered decent.

>>> Rick, don't you mean "Victrola"? <<<

Hey it sometimes certainly feels like I've been around that long Tom, what really hits home is having thirty something year old people calling me 'Sir'. Manners are great but sheesh that makes me feel ancient!

Rebuilding one of those old console systems would be a neat little project, update the components with a killer amp/receiver along with some kick butt in wall speakers. Would almost be like dropping a hopped up Chevy big block in an old hot rod, how cool would that be!

It's been a while since I posted, but I thought I'd chime in with a recommendation. Teddy Thompson's newest album hasn't left my car CD player for almost a week now. I ran across a review that said "he's a winner in the gene lottery". Very true -- this is good stuff.
