Seth BS: What happened to your records? (55* d) RE: BS: What happened to your records? 26 Oct 00

My Father -in- law recently died at ninety-seven. He had been the publicist for several opera singers of the first part of the century ( Nellie Melba, Madame Schumman Heink) He had huge folder of opera '78's that he carried around with him the rest of his life, and he was a man who didn't stay in one place very long.He took very good care of them, didn't let his children touch them, and would take them lovingly from their folders to play for us just a few years ago. He would smile and the voice of Nellie Melba or Carouso would fill the room. " Now this is the real music." he would say. The cool thing was that he was right- they still sounded great, 80years? after they were made. I can't imagine that CD's would be involved in a situation like that. I think that records had a nice long run,( 1915-1990?) and that it is part of what gives them some kind of special mojo for many of us. I still have them, carefully stored away, waiting for what?
