My parents gave me my birthday present a couple months early. It's a vintage record cabinet! Ever since my old record player broke, I've had my eye out for something like this. Now I have a record player for the living room and the dining room.
The front of the cabinet opens to reveal the record player, stereo and even an 8 track! This record player can hold multiple records which is so nice. I don't have to keep flipping a record or swapping it out every few minutes.
Hugo wants to know where the dog treats are stored.
When I posted to Facebook how excited I was about my new record cabinet, someone who was looking to grow their record collection asked me to share my vinyl collection. Well, I couldn't fit it all into a Facebook comment so here it is...
These are not all the records I have but rather the types of records I collect. Here are a few of my current artist records. Basically if I really like an album, like almost every song, then I get the vinyl record of it.
Most of my records are vintage and found at yard sales and thrift stores. I like a lot of oldies... particularly folk groups... like Kingston Trio and Peter Paul and Mary. That is why I find the movie A Mighty Wind hilarious.
And I love this particular type of instrumental music... I don't know what the name for it would be... trumpets and guitars I guess. Billy Vaughn, Bert Kaempfert, Herb Alpert and The Ventures.
I also love albums that are instrumental but not from any particular band. More so, they have a theme, such as Music for Dining or Fiddles by Firelight. They are perfect background music to have playing while I'm puttering around the house.
