Sadly I don't have a functional record player so along with the rest of my LPs and singles it's stored carefully in a cupboard barely played
Thanks for the link - the set is awesome!!! It even has three interviews, one with Buddy and the other two with Dick Clark and Alan Freed - that would be great to listen to!
Sorry to hear about the record player - here's a link that might interest you, if you would ever like to turn all that wonderful Buddy Holly music into digital media that you could play on your computer, USB memory stick, MP3 player or record onto CDs to listen to in the car or at work:
And, I wanted to congratulate you on a great turntable - you can probably stack six or seven 33 1/3's on that baby - it probably has better sound, too, than the original from the 50's.
Have a good night!
Thanks Robbie! I checked Dave out - he's cool. Couldn't find a link to the actual song to listen to, but I have a feeling I"ve heard the Fats Domino version (keep on knockin' but ya can't come in?) if so, that's a rockin' song....and it's mine all mine
thanks for the review of the player - six or seven! wow! i've been conservative up until now - i could dj a party every night with that set up...my neighbors will grow to hate me in short order
My family gave me a smaller one than the Varsity - the Collegiate I believe, which I think was made out of wood with a cherry finish. I know it wasn't cherry, since the top broke fairly easy a couple of times - not sure why... (It wasn't me!)
And yes, if you remember the Fats Domino version of "I Hear You Knockin'", you have it right, except that Dave's was very "twangy" - that's how many have described it.
