Vintage Music

I love music.  My most preferred music is from the early 1900's to 1940's.  However, I also love music from the 1950's to 1970's.  Yes, I love disco, I admit it.  LOL!  I like instrumental, vocal and nature music.  I enjoy good acapella music as well.  

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.

Thanks so much for visiting me today, and please feel free to share your memories and thoughts on vintage music by clicking on the "comments" button at the end of my post.


  1. Some say the quality of vinyl is better than the MP3 recordings of today.

    1. Hi Andrew, I heard about that! Sometimes technology is not necessarily better at all.

  2. You love music, I do too. Many sorts.

  3. We seem to have very similar tastes - in music, at least. Back in the 70s, I wrote a weekly column discussing the latest record releases. The record companies sent me "demo" albums and I ended up with thousands. I've given away most of them. That was great fun, though.

    Now, my biggest collection of CDs included Sinatra and Willie Nelson!

  4. I forgot to mention that I used to write music. I had an album of old-timey country stuff released in Europe in 1998. The lead song, "Too Good to be Blue," made it to #1 on the Independent Radio charts and #10 on the Top 50 (right up there with Reba, Garth, etc.) That was fun but I never made any money from it. A good friend, producer from Nashville who worked with all the big names, told me to move to Nashville if I wanted to be successful. That really wasn't an option.

  5. Brings back memories of the musci tapes and LP's I once bought.


  6. Helt enig.
    Jeg holder også meget af de gode gamle musikstykker.

  7. I still have all my vinyl! There's nothing like the cosy sound of that crackling.... Thank you for the reminder.

  8. I still have a few vinyl albums, although I don't currently even own a record player! LOL.. I've thought of getting one of those USB record players, but I might just sell the albums instead, we'll see..

  9. Lubię też słuchać dobrej muzyki, takiej "wpadającej w ucho". Mam też płyty winylowe, tylko nie ma na czym ich przesłuchiwać. Moje dzieci słuchały nawet bajek z takich płyt. Pozdrawiam i dziękuję za komentarz u mnie. *** I like listening to good music, such a "catchy". I also have vinyl, but not on what they hear. My kids even heard tales of such records. I greet and thank you for your comments with me :-).

  10. On ne peut pas se séparer de nos vieux vinyles... ils sont devenus précieux et représentent également un epartie de notre vie et de notre jeunesse aussi bien sûr !
    Une très jolie publication...
    Je vous remercie pour votre gentil commentaire laissé sur mon blog.
    Gros bisous à vous.

  11. Times move on and now even Cd's are being replaced by MP3!
