RE: What our records represent

Yes, I agree. They do conjure memories.

In some cases, it is the music and the memories associated with playing that music with a certain person or in a certain period of my life.

In other situations, it's a reflection of a time period and the music I was listening to during an era of my life.

I'm not particularly sentimental, but I still love listening to LPs and still buy a few each year. (Although, unfortunately, I do find that I buy more SACD and CDs than LPs these days, just because LPs of the music I want is rarely available on LP now.)

HOWEVER, as I get older, I wonder what to do with the 2,000+ LPs I now own, neatly organized, every one in NM condition. I have no children or other relatives to just dump them on. I hate to just begin taking a box periodically to Goodwill or other dumping spots. There are no resale places in my city that want any classical at all (although I'm sure they'd love all the pristine classic rock, folk and jazz-rock fusion).

Thing is, I don't want to get rid of them yet, because (I hope) there's still music to be enjoyed for years to come by me and wifey.
