This weekend I spent all my time unpacking boxes, so going forward I can start emptying out the storage unit. Yay!!
Anyway, three of the boxes that I unpacked were filled with record albums. Oh no, not just plain records albums. I have really fab-u-lous vinyl record albums that have music that every-one wants to listen to and enjoy.
I’m totally laughing out loud.
Let me just remind you that I have been a nerd for a very long time, so some of the records in my collection shouldn’t surprise you much.
But first, let me share a few vinyl record album facts.
Vinyl Record Album Facts
- A vinyl record album can also be called a phonograph record, gramophone record, record album and a record.
- Vinyl records have analog recordings.
- A vinyl record is a flat, round disk with a spiral groove.
- The groove in a vinyl record starts at the outer edge of the disc and ends towards the center of the disk.
- When a record is played, the sound can be different on the outer edge than the inner edge. This is caused because the tracks on the inside are closer together than the outer tracks.
- The quality of the vinyl used when producing a vinyl record determines the quality and durability of the sound that is recorded on it.
- Vinyl record albums were the main way that music was recorded until the latter part of the 1980’s.
- Digital media took over the market in the late 1980’s.
- Heat and sunlight can quickly warp a vinyl record.
- Vinyl records easily produce a static charge which attracts dust and dirt.
- When dust sticks to vinyl records it is difficult to remove it. If it remains on the record, it will create a popping or cracking-scratching noises when the record is played.
- Vinyl records can be described by their diameter or their rotational speed. The diameter could be 12 inch or 10 inch and the rotational speed could be 78 rpm or 45 rpm.
