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.

All I can think of is audio is perhaps parallel to age.  In my case, with my aging, so does audio, be it vinyl, CD.  Somehow..... Streaming is the rage now.  Who knows what will it be say 5 years from now.  Only time wins. :thumb:

Hey Barry,

I want my vinyl 45's back (Kidding!).  Vinyl sale is on top!  Amazing! Would you believe?  Nah, I still gotta save storage space in my apt, so those oldies are in good hands.  IF anyone will even be reading this.   :duh :rofl: :thumb:

I believe the music artists like it because it is not as easy to copy for most people. Now we know how easy it is to do needle drops but most people are not interested. That boat has sailed.

Las Vegas is a destination kind of place- a number of us might want to have an extended meeting at your place. How far are you from the airport?
I canít speak for everyone, but Iíve got a few wires I can pack for the trip.  :thumb:

Jim,
I wish I had the huge home and ultra high end system that a few of those members had  :-({|= I hate to disappoint, but I live in so. Utah and am a minimum of a 2 hour drive to get to Vegas. Not quite as exciting here as living there   :lol:
