So you thought you've pirated everything huh?

Ingenious, but why? A digital copy is so much easier, and more useable. Or is it the old Everest thing - "Because it's there"?

I bet it doesn't do the original vinyl record any good.

One should CLEAN the original carefully BEFORE attempting this. ANY dust, and the copy will be unplayable.

How about keeping them in the covers they came with. Simple but effective.

Vinyl is a very new technology for the average mudcatter. The average mudcatter is still trying to figure out how to pirate copies of their hot wax recordings.

I have a good buddy who is a real hifier & is gearing up to digitize my LPs. He has actually borrowed a packful of them. He has a special turntable just to clean them. The turntable that will actually play them has little holes in it to suck the disc down so it will be really really flat. He has to be careful where he plugs in the vacuum pump. He is still tweaking the software. In the meantime, I still have a Japanese device that plays them in the old-fashioned way.

Oops, the Google ad at the bottom caught my eye as I hit "submit message." We have three of them in the house, if you count the beautiful and functional Victrola in the front room. And during WWII my father picked up a portable Victrola in Burma on the road (literally--in the middle of it, set up as if it had been wound up and played while the British soldiers marched out). That's out in the garage.

Man, all this newfangled stuff; I didn't know there was any way to hear music after it was performed except sing in the mountains and listen to the echoes!

As you play all your new CDs, / Give a thought to your old LPs. / Throw them out with a cold cold heart, / Or transform those LPs into art.

Spray them gold like the harvest moon. / Hang them up in the living room. / Go right now to where paint is sold. / Buy a can, go outside, spray them gold.
