Dad's old LP collection

The other day I was looking up for something on a closet in the "marquesina" [you might call it garage] at home. I saw the collection of Dad's old Long Play music. I even organized it by genres Salsa, Rock, Romance, Ladies, Christmas and so on.

Found out that he loved Santana, Tito Rodriguez, Lucecita, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Danny Rivera, Ismael Rivera, Willie Colon, La Lupe... the list goes on and on. I think that in total I count almost 200 Long Plays. He haves more but they are on another room/closet.

I was thinking about doing a list so we really know what he haves there. They are all in great condition but I need an LP player to check them out for real. Some even have the plastic they came in... other have the paper the LP was put on.

It is kind of cool to see all this old things from your parents and it is way better to see that they are in good condition. This will be a good.. wait a GREAT project for me if I ever dare to make the list of Dad's old LP collection

  2. I have five hundred, including the first one I bought, Sergio Mendez second on AM records.

    If you want to listen to them, get
    a record player on internet for less
    than 300 bucks, make sure you get also
    a replacement stylus.

    And good luck.

  3. Me encanta tu idea...Sabes? Gracias a los LP´s de mi padre he mantenido siempre una mente abierta hacia la música y para mí forma parte de la banda sonora de mi vida.
    Tiene tantos aún en algún armario de la casa que no podría ponerlos todos!
