I remember the old vinyl records. You had the 78's, the 45's and the 33 rpm records. Most of them were black; however, some, as I recall, were red, yellow and green. These vinyl records are making a comeback, as many people still love the sound that comes from them. One person likened the sound to the crackle of a fireplace...warmth, nostalgic. I agree with him. As for the 45's, you needed a plastic piece that fit in the middle so that it would stay still on the record player or stereo and play properly.
We also had the tapes...however, I always preferred the records.
