Retro Sunday.. The LP and Cassette

I sold high end stereos back in the day. There was just as much over sold techno-babble then as now. 500 dollar turntable cartridges at retail that at cost were under 50 bucks. The only thing I can say was worth the money were half speed mastered LP's. Such as this one:

Reminds me of someone!  Yes I can hear the scratches on the album on the cassette. So much the better.

Oh, hurry! I just got a warning from Sony that I may be violating copyright thingies! Sheesh! I bought the album and CD and so now what!

  4. @ Maura- LOL! One of the requirements I have for a sound system is that it can be turned up loud enough to drown my voice out too while "singing" to use the term loosely!

    @ Supi- It's mostly old stuff but gets the job done.

    @ NFO- Thanks!
