 Full List Coming Soon- There are hundreds of them to catalog!



Fun Facts/Food for Thought
Brad had:
6 large crates – each hold about 70-75 records weighing in at about 40 lbs each.
(one partial uncounted crate)
6 x 70 = 420 records     40 x 6 = 240 lbs
9 small tubs - each hold about 120 - 130 7” records weighing in at about 17 lbs each
9 x  120 = 1080 7” records   17 x 9 = 153 lbs
So all added up he had more than 15 crates holding a total of more than 1500 records weighing in at more than 393 pounds!
Vinyl Record Day
August 12, 2007
Profile America — Sunday, August 12th. Listening to a favorite song can bring back fond memories. That's the idea behind Vinyl Record Day — celebrated each year on this date, the anniversary of Thomas Edison's invention of the phonograph. Vinyl records — both 33? and 45 RPM — brought Americans their favorite music for more than half a century. Today, computer downloaded music means that we can each put hundreds of songs into a tiny, portable device, so we can hear our favorites anywhere. Even with these advances, CDs still account for a majority of recordings sold. And vinyl LPs haven't entirely gone away — they are a little less than 1 percent of total annual music sales. You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau on the Web at <>.

Gramophone record
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A gramophone record (also known as phonograph record, or simply record) is an analog sound storage medium consisting of a flat disc with an inscribed modulated spiral groove usually starting near the periphery and ending near the center of the disc. When made of vinyl they were also known as vinyl records.
Gramophone records were the primary medium used for commercial music reproduction for most of the 20th century. They replaced the phonograph cylinder as the most popular recording medium in the 1900s, and although they were supplanted in popularity in the late 1980s by digital media, leaving mainstream by 1991, they continue to be manufactured and sold as of 2008, still used by DJs and audiophiles for certain types of music, especially electronic dance music and hip hop.
Types of records
As recording technology evolved, more specific terms for gramophone or phonograph records would be used to emphasize some aspect of the record, often its nominal rotational speed ("16 2/3 rpm", "33 1/3 rpm", "45 rpm", "78 rpm") or the material used (particularly "vinyl" to refer to records made of polyvinyl chloride, or the earlier "shellac records"). Less specific terms such as "Long Play" (LP, meaning it was capable of playing for far longer than the old acetate records, which typically didn't go much past 4 minutes per side. An L.P. can play for over forty minutes per side. The 45 rpm discs also came in a variety known as Extended play (EP) which achieved up to 10–15 minutes play at the expense of attenuating (and possibly compressing) the sound to reduce the width required by the groove. EP discs were generally used to reissue LP albums on the smaller format for those people who had only 45 rpm players. LP albums could be purchased 1 EP at a time, with four songs per EP, or in a boxed set with 3 EPs or 12 songs. The large center hole on 45s allows for easier handling by jukebox mechanisms. In modern times it is common that a band will release an "E.P." oF 4 or 5 songs shortly before releasing a full album, or "L.P.", that hopefully will build a buzz around the new album.
Sizes of records in America and the UK are generally measured in inches, usually represented with a double prime symbol, e.g. a 7-inch or 7″ record. 45s are generally 7″ records. LPs were 10″ records at first, but soon the 12″ size became by far the most common.

Note: Before the early 1950s, the 33 1/3 rpm LP was most commonly found in a 10-inch (25 cm) format. The 10-inch format disappeared from United States stores around 1950, but remained a common format in some markets until the mid-1960s.
