Hell, I remember 78s. You had to handle them with some care as they were breakable.

True Story ... There's a scene in Almost Famous where the Cameron Crowe character is flipping through his sister's record collection. A kid sitting in front of my wife and me turns to his mother and says "what are those"?

Yes, but do you have a working record player?
I do, but I don't play it ... but I need to sell it on E-bay ... apparently it's one that has stood the test of time and is worth about $250.

I gave away my collection of LPs about a decade ago when I no longer had any playback equipment for it. But I kept one memento that I couldn't bring myself to give away:
Herbert von Karajan - Berliner Philharmoniker – Beethoven Edition - 9 Symphonien; Label: Deutsche Grammophon – 2720 007; Format: 8 × Vinyl, LP, 33 ⅓ RPM; Released: 1970
IMHO, these recordings, which I also have in CD format, are the quintessential performances of Big Ludwig's magna opera.

I have a couple of dozen LPs that I keep mostly for momentos [I haven't been able to play them for a decade or so] as well as a few wax 78s that I inherited from an uncle that I keep to remind me of him.
