FIND THE OLD RECORDS YOU'VE LOST AND LOVE!
YOU CAN DO THIS TOO.
DREW'S STORY

You're probably way ahead of me. But, if you're not, this section could really bring happiness, light, and tons of 'old' fun. So read on.
It's frustrating. When I was in high school, I was a big folk music fan. But that was 30 years ago. And frankly I've lost more of my records than I'd care to admit.
Who were you're favorite artists of the time? What records did you listen to? Any special memories that you share with an old girl friend? Wife?

Anyway, if you're like me I'll bet you've still got some old almost forgotten favorites that you'd love to hear again. But how do you find them 30 years later? Well, Read on.
Anyway, there were two artists that I really loved that I don't think ever recorded folk music again. One was a San Diego singer named Tim Morgan and the other was a South African named Sebastian Temple. (He became quite famous later.)
But I couldn't find my albums and used record stores were a bust as well.
OK HERE'S THE GOOD PART. Then I searched the Internet for used records and I found BOTH records in just one evening for about $6 each. Wow. It's so easy, I don't know why I never thought of it before.
It had been over 15 years since I'd heard them. Now I've recorded CDRs and MP3s and I can listen any time I want.
And best of all with CDs, they don't wear out. I can program them too, which I couldn't do with the LPs. I've got them in my car and I've made MP3 files that I travel with too. And because they're CDs, there'll be no new scratches, ticks or hiss.
You can do it too. So who is your favorite artist? Do you have all their records?

Here's how to find your own favorites.

Just go to your favorite search engine (I like Google Best) and enter the artist's name in QUOTES "Sebastian Temple", then add the words AND LP AND Price.
This combination should help you locate the used records of your choice. Quickly, easily and cheaply too. Here's why.

The artist's name of course is necessary. By adding LP or 45, we limit the number of sites we get to sites with or talking about LPs and 45s, and the word Price is a pretty good limiter to sites selling LPs and 45s with your artist's name.
Actually "price" is a good limiter whenever you're trying to find something you want to by on the Internet any time.
I guess the logic I'm trying to share is that if you just type the artists name, you'll get every reverence to them on the Internet. By adding LP and Price, you'll get 'mostly' (yes it's not 100%) sites selling what you want.
In some cases adding a track/song name might be good, but they may or may not be listed with used records. If you find too many hits, you can always add that. But, in all, it's really easy.
So, go find your old favorites. It's amazing how many you can find. I've bought over 100 LPs including 4 by Tim Morgan (I didn't even know they existed) and 3 by Sebastian Temple. So, I'm one happy listener, and I'm sure that you will be too.

THE 'TELL LAURA I LOVE HER' STORY

So a few months ago, we're sitting at dinner. And for some reason I asked my son's fiancé (they were married 2 weeks ago) if her parents had named her after Laura from the song "Tell Laura I Love Her". I guess you already figured out that her name is Laura.

Anyway, she said she didn't know because she had never heard the song (kids). My wife said no that they wouldn't have because it was a really sad song.
I didn't remember that it was sad, I just remembered that it had a really haunting refrain. Anyway I jumped onto the Internet, found and bought the album. And here's where it gets fun.
When I got the album, I listened to the song and sure enough, it was just as sad as my wife said. And what's worse, it was her lover (my son since he was marring her) that got killed.
Well, we couldn't have that. So, I copied it onto my hard disc and started editing out the sad parts. It really wasn't hard. I made 3 versions, each one a little sadder than the last.
Needless to say, the next time we had dinner, I presented them with the CD and the original album for their pleasure, education and maybe amazement.
Well, they thought it was great (and that I was a little demented) and Laura shared it with her parents who liked it too. I guess they didn't think I was too strange because they didn't call off the wedding. :) So think how lucky you are not to have me as your in-law.

But the moral of the whole story is look what you can find on the Internet and look how much fun you can have 'fixing' the old songs and programing them and more. I'll look forward to hearing your stories soon.
