Welcome to SANDYLAND!!

Christmas Wish List #3

I love records.  Yes, records.  Not CDs, not MP3a, RECORDS!

I have an old stereo system that plays records and has big speakers.  I bought it from a friend many, many years ago for $20 and have cherished it (I also have a still-working Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too record player).  The sound of vinyl is something unmatched.  In fact, Blue Rodeo released an album a few years ago ON VINYL!  Love it.

My record player needs a new needle, unfortunately, but it still plays. (And just to note, Billy Joel’s Piano Man is so incredible on vinyl that I have two copies of it…y’know, just in case.)

One of the best albums out there...

One of the best albums out there…

That’s why I was ecstatic to see that Walmart – yes, Walmart – is selling record players.  Yay for a rewind.

And I have my eye on this little guy:

CROSLEYThe Crosley Cruiser Portable Turntable.  It’s only $62.88 at Walmart and it comes in tons of colors.  It’s bomb-diggity.

(People from my family reading this….Please feel free to pass this on to, maybe to a certain guy who may be looking for ideas. :p)

  1. Don’t a lot of people still call CDs records? its like synonymous with the item of music. I know I still have a bunch of records, including 45’s back home where i grew up. I keep on imagining them lining the walls of my restaurant I’ll never open, much like the walls in an Applebee’s. ~ Piano Man.. A classic!

    • I sometimes refer to as an album as a record. But actually vinyl records are the best. And I see your 45s and raise you 8 tracks (which we have and the player still works too!).
      Your restaurant sounds like a good idea. And yes, the entire Piano Man album is a classic.

    • Amy – the way you’re scolding me here I thought you were my mother. LOL!
      I admit I am late with the posts but I’ve been busy and don’t have the time I used to have. But that record player is bomb-diggity.
