Just another perl hacker somewhere near Disneyland
Today is the day I'm glad I never got rid of all my vinyl. Though I haven't heard any of it for about 12 years, I've managed to to hang on to most of it...and the irony is that although my wife is the one who has encouraged jettisoning the records, she's the one who gave me the turntable w/the USB connection (big thank you to you dear).
So, what to record first? A while back, I did sell my copy of Generic Flipper, and I'm still kicking myself for that, though I do still have Public Flipper Limited, but that's not exactly a family friendly album (I'll record that one some late night or when no one's home). I've also got some 78's of Yehudi and Hephzibah Menuhin playing Beethoven's Sonata No. 9 in A (Op. 47 "Kreutzer Sonata"), but I don't yet have a 78 needle, so I'll leave that one for now. And besides, Amazon seems to have it, though I'm not sure if their 6:48 version is what I have (what is the play time of 4 78 disks anyway?).
So first up on the platter is Jon and the Nightriders, which seems to have been never released to CD, though it's the greatest surf album ever recorded...IMHO
