The Rolling Stones in 1967
Younger readers of this blog may not know what an LP is. It is a Long Playing Record (vinyl) that existed many years before tapes, CDs, and MP3 files. Anyway, on the way home from work today I was reading Goldmine Magazine (http://www.goldminemag.com) which is for collectors of popular music. In 2007 there were several articles commemorating the summer of love in 1967 including Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band. In this week's issue there was an article about the 3 LPs that the Rolling Stones issued in that year: Aftermath, Their Satanic Majesty's Request, and Flowers. I still have the first two two in vinyl but bought Flowers on a 8 Track Tape. Many years ago I discarded the 8 tracks I did own since I no longer had a player for them. Tonight instead of listening to an internet radio station, I decided to listen to Aftermath. My vinyl copy is still in pretty good condition and I still have a turntable.
