When I was a kid the music we listened to were records or on cassettes. Todays digital music storage and playback int todays era were not even thought of or perhaps thought of but not realized. The day of the record took a lot of care as not to scratch the record as it was being removed from the sleeve or placed back in. Resting the needle gently on the record would allow you to listen to some awesome songs. The record itself comes in a giant sleeve, a spacious canvas fro the visual part: the album artwork. The records often create a listening experience fundamentally different than the one offered by mp3 players.
