A Few of Our Favorite Things: Old Records

Many things are piled around the cabin ... including stacks of old LPs. Collected by family members and salvaged from junk sales, a little bit of everything spins beneath the needle.

The latest acquisitions ... Sarah Vaughan and Billie Holiday.

Last year's favorite finds: Glen Miller's Orchestra and The Platters.

Classical records, operatic performances, Christmas choirs and Dowop bands -- from 33s to 78s, in vinyl sleeves to original covers. The sound of scratchy vinyl is unforgettable, magic in comparison to smooth cds and remastered classics.

Although a few do need to be rescued now and then from a "skipping" song. But I firmly believe that's part of the charm of classy vinyl collections.
