45 vinyl giveaway!?
« on: September 12, 2020, 09:49:40 AM »
This group, as well as many others, are pretty much on life support.  I check back here once in a while, but haven't seen much posting.  Anyhow, I want to give away? my 45 RPM records.  Is there anyone out there playing with them?  They're all hit songs from the 50s through may be late 70's, even early 80's.  I kind of stopped when the disco craze came in (Donna Summer).  I'd say I have at least 100 of 'em, and likely more, in a box.  Anyone?

There are aficionados of 45's out there. Thought about a local record store?

Hey Shek, I'm interested. When would be a good time to collect them?

I thought I replied to you, Barry, via the message loop?  Anyhow, as I said, I may be able to drop off to you, as I'm considering going upstate to the Monticello area via Route 17.  I remember you're somewhere off Route 17 near Paramus?  So, we can work it out.

Ha, just heard on public radio, vinyl albums are resurrecting.  The digital kids now realized that the vinyl sound is better?  The truth is that the profit margin for some people is better with vinyl (the seller?), 'cos typical digital streaming the margin is very small????  Money still talks. :duh :rofl:

I remember when cds were more expensive than vinyl in the late 80s(?). CD was marketed as the premium product then, it is the reverse today.  Probably being made in smaller batches also makes vinyl more expensive.

I guess storing vinyl, transporting it, packaging it (larger sleeves and printing costs) also contribute to the price?

This is an interesting article from 1995 that was lamenting the high cost of cds: https://www.nytimes.com/1995/07/05/arts/pennies-that-add-up-to-16.98-why-cd-s-cost-so-much.html

Times have changed.
