Anyone out there own a turntable/record player?  I remember using one when I was a kid and there was such amazing charm with the crackle and hiss.  I remember 8-tracks too, but those were a pain.
I see all these insanely cool record releases yet I know no one who currently has a record player.

I think I want one now.  It'd be wonderful to play The Shining soundtrack on it with all the windows open on a cool Autumn night.

Hell I'd buy it just for the artwork.

I remember having a turntable. It was hooked up to my dad's Martanz tube driven receiver. So much power came out of that thing, you could feel the crackle of the needle and record drilling inside your head.

Probably one of the reasons why I now have ring in the ears.

nice.

my dad had tons of big band albums. Christmas time was great..Duke Ellington Christmas albums...Frank Sinatra singing jazzy xmas tunes.

it's kinda cool that they had to be handled with great care..unlike everything now that's made to withstand multiple drops on the ground.
I'm officially old: Back in MY day we dropped things and they BROKE...and we LIKED it!

That is too cool! Yep I'd buy another turntable for record albums like those!

Rot, saw some Witch Jars at Horror Nights in Orlando. Made a little blog entry...

Rot said...

gonna check it out now.

Ugh. I had to listen to Beach Boys Christmas songs while decorating the tree.

Yup. Back in MY day, if we wanted something new, we would just break the old item.....and had fun doing it.

Mark, that is totally crazy. I think they are monitoring Rot's blog for ideas.

In honor of still having a turn table, I will put on my EP of Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart. Oooops! It plays on 45 - no wonder it sounded kinda slow!

I own two, if you do pick one up, I'd recommend either a Audio-Technica or Crosley (especially since Crosley makes some really classy vintage style players)

Rot said...

Wow...those aren't expensive at all.
Not sure why I was thinking they'd be a fortune.

I have a turntable, fairly new, bought about two years ago, Audio-Technica. The only reason I have it is because I have a P.D.Q. Bach set and some big band on vinyl. On the whole I much prefer CD for storage and handling considerations. Not much of an MP3 guy except to burn 'em to CD.

I've been collecting horror soundtracks lately and scored the beautiful "candy corn splatter" vinyl version of this release (didn't get the picture discs in the photo). 2 records in this one. The first is the soundtrack from the film, the second is a collection of scary sounds, like the classic Halloween sound effect records of the 60s and 70s. I can't wait to put this on my turntable!! (Yes, my turntable!!)
