The LP Adventures, Part I (b)

As I take a step into the store, the smell of must and history overwhelm me. I've always adored vinyls; each one has a story.  The records I ever so delicately pluck from the rows were once held many years ago by someone not too different from myself, someone just as eager to add it to their collection. My eyes gloss over every imperfection, my fingers run over the wear and tear. It all adds to its charm. It all adds to the art. Each time I leave, I find myself wishing not to abandon the countless vinyls that wait quietly and patiently for someone new to want them. I promise them all that someday it will be their turn, and walk away.

Anyway, here's what I came out with today:

Led Zeppelin I - Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin IV - Led Zeppelin
Time Fades Away - Neil Young
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
Don't Say No - Billy Squier

Well worth the trip I believe. I only need a couple more Zeppelin vinyls, and I'll have their entire LP collection.
