Enjoy a Long Play

Sit down. Relax. Enjoy a Long Play.

The record player you see on this photo is an old “Rølex” (seriously, that’s the name of the brand!) and, if you were in doubt; Yes, it’s old.

  1. My Grandmother had one of those ‘Rolex’. She enjoyed stepping into the timing of a waltz with Grandfather. 🙂 Enjoyed this very much. Have a great rest of the week!

    • I believe my grandfather had this one, then my dad had it and now I have it. By the way this is not a Rolex, but a Norwegian copy brand named Rølex, and I believe it must be cursed, because all the previous owners are dead 😀

  2. Yeah long playing relax… 😉

    I have more than 1000 old LPs, from the time of the good old days before CDs and often enjoy listening… 😉

      • The sound on the Rølex: the bass isn’t all that, but it’s bearable. I’ve stored it away now. Tried to sell it once, but no one wanted to buy it. So I decided to store it safely and sell it later on.

        I bought a new record player that can turn the albums into mp3 files, but the new record player was absolutely shait (some piece of shit-anus-crap that I bought at Clas-Ohlson – BEWARE SCANDINAVIAN READERS – STAY AWAY FROM CLAS OHLSON).

        I’ve been wanting to buy a new record player, a quality one that’ll last, but I don’t have the money. So, I don’t really listen to albums no more. I just download all the stuff. It’s easier, but the sound is worse…

    • Wow! Great collection! I don’t know how many I have, perhaps 2/3 of you? (it must be somewhere around 333,33 albums.) Or perhaps just 1/4? I’m not sure.

  3. We had a fairly sizable collection of LP’s that we sold when we moved to the city. Regretting that decision now 😦

  4. So many times when I listen to songs on my iPod, always on shuffle, I keep expecting to hear the following track from the original album to follow, and follow. My records are coming with me to the nursing home!
