What? No Mixtures...?!! Sacrilege...!!

Some excellent stuff there Alright Now...the K-Tel compiling department would be proud of you...!

Nice to see 'Daytrip To Bangor' making an appearance...we in Britain had the original by Fiddler's Dram which was extremely huge over Christmas 1979, and much parodied...

You should really think about getting a burner - they're dirt cheap these days...

I've Never Been to Me by Charlene is also an 80's hit as well, it was re-released in 1982 and actually became a hit single for her then. :)

Thanks guys...Im glad you all like the compilation. I know I really do need a turn CD burner...Maybe in the next year or so. And yes...I am an old fashioned guy. I reckon the crackles on a record add character to the music. Though, there is something to be said for the crisp sound of CDs as well.

I am going to re-copy them onto CD sometime in the next few months (a friend of mine has a burner.

I also have well over 800 more vinyl singles from the 70's which didnt make it onto the cassettes simply because of space...I am planning to make another 7 hour compilation in the next few months. I also have about 600 albums from the 1970's as well, from such bands and singers as Led Zepplin, ACDC, Free, ABBA, George Harrison, Ringo Star, Wings, John Lennon etc. They didnt make the cassetes because I was compiling my singles. Maybe next time, or the time after Ill copy my albums.



Thanks again for your feedback guys  :)

Id never sell my turntable....Then Id not be able to listen to most of my music collection. My turntable is a 1973 His Masters Voice turn table/radio/8 track player which still has its original speakers. It is in mint condition because it used to belong to my Grandparents before they gave it to me. It is one of my prized possessions. I also have a collection of needles (for the turn table). These actually came with the player. Two packets are un opened because I began buying the diamond tipped needles back in the early 90's. To copy onto cassette I have to plug in my ghetto blaster to the back of the record player. Certain models of the HMV players were built just as the cassette technology was made and were released with a jack for exterman cassette players to be plugged into the back, which mine has...Apparently its pretty rare.

I actually looked through my records last night and found a lot by The Beatles, Elvis, The Rolling Stones, Don McLean, Led Zepplin, ABBA and ACDC. There are a lot of others that I have, but they are the ones I have most of. Others include Free, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Wings, Jefferson Airplane, Ravi Shankar, Tom Jones, and many many others. One day, when I get time, I will get the put onto CD.

I also have a lot of 70's music videos as well...Just copied from the TV. I have bought a few DVDs too.

But my records are my favorites....Oh, them, my Lava lamp, my small collection of 1970's Matchbox cars and my smurfs (I only have 3 left, but they are among my favorites).
