My turntable belt arrived today, so I can now play my records again. I grabbed a few from the loft and fired them up. A few things sprang to mind:
you seem to have to do quite a bit just to play a record. There’s a lot of faffing around for 20 minutes of music. This is of course the inspiration behind my difficultifier of days gone by.
the sound is surprisingly good for a what a really primitive way of storing and retrieving sound
I really need to get myself a record cleaner
Having said all this, it was rather nice to hear all these sounds from the past.
