I remember mixing tapes on cassette tapes. I remember buying albums and being fascinated with the art work. I remember buying needles for record players. I remember buying 45's at a department store. My first four ablums were:

Steve Miller--Fly Like an Eagle 8 track

Aerosmith-- Toys in the Attic LP

War-- Greatest Hits LP

Electric Light Orchestra-- A New World Record LP

I remember when I was young I used to play in the sun.....shine on you crazy diamond
