Home at the folks’ for a couple of nights and my old man has dug out a load of old vinlies for me, bless him. Sure, there are a couple of original Beatles albums which my mum bought in the 60s (Abbey Rd and White Album, the latter pretty pristine with all the trimmings: photos of the boys etc) but what I’m really excited about is my old stuff, notably:
Bad by Michael Jackson
Crazy For You by Madonna (the first single I ever bought)
Sadly no sign of Hunting High And Low by a-Ha, my first ever album purchase, but it’s so great to have Bad again. The moment I touched it, I could almost have been transported back to the beginning of 1988 and my 10th birthday, which I got this LP for. The next birthday I have, it’ll be exactly 30 years since that present. I’m gonna play it.
