Assuming that mp3 versions of "albums" are not being counted here, then my last "hold in my hand vinyl album" might have been Led Zeppelin's In Through The Out Door from back in 1979.

My last cassette might have been Head East's Flat As A Pancake album from 1974. Had wanted to re-listen to some older stuff a few years ago, but, you know, with having so much around, it's difficult to remember......

Although I have also listened to some Leadbelly and Woodie Guthrie on Smithsonian's Folkways recording - but these were CDs......

Rite Of Spring - Stravinsky

Speaking of this CD.

Dude, I remember when I had this symphony on vinyl many moons ago, it did sound better and I just remembered that the other day when I played it. There is one part that was used in the movie "Fantasia" and it's very dramatic. I couldn't understand why this part didn't sound as good on CD when I thought for sure it would be better.

Riddick, my Dad used to have the first album put out by Peter Sellers in the late 50s. It was called "The Best of Sellers" and it was hilarious. Some of the lines from that album were always used in conversation in our family to inspire a good laugh.

Hey Now RA, sounds like your family had quite the sense of humor! Of course, it never hurts to borrow from the best. And speaking of...

BEST SELLERS (excerpted from time.com) -
  • How big was Sellers in his robust prime? Big enough to justify this statement: the Beatles would not have been what they became if it were not for Sellers and "The Goon Show." In the mid-50s, as a sideline to his radio broadcasts, he began making comedy records (usually written by Frank Muir and Dennis Norden).

    Some of the bits featured "Goon Show" characters; the boy Bluebottle performs a searing "Unchained Melody." Others parodied contemporary pop styles. Skiffle star Lonnie Donegan became Lenny Goonigan; pretty Teddy boy Adam Faith devolved into Twit Conway; Elvis-clone Tommy Iron (Tommy Steele) tried a rock version of Purcell's "Trumpet Voluntary." The bits were collected in "The Best of Sellers" and "Songs for Swinging Sellers"; as singles they often hit the top 20 on U.K. charts. "Goodness Gracious Me," a bouncy samba that Sellers performed as a duet with Sophia Loren, went to #4. The producer of all these oddities: George Martin.

    When the lads from Liverpool were introduced to the man who would make their records, they didn't care about Martin's background in jazz, but they were impressed that he had worked with Sellers and Milligan. And when the Beatles came to make a movie, they chose as their producer Walter Shenson, who had produced Sellers' breakthrough hit "The Mouse That Roared," and director Richard Lester, who had directed Sellers and Milligan in the avant-gaga short "The Running Jumping & Standing Still Film."

    The result: "A Hard Day's Night" and "Help!", two films that stand with pride in the larky, anarchic tradition of "The Goon Show" and the Milligan-Sellers TV follow-up series, "A Show Called Fred." That program's title gets an allusive homage in a "Hard Day's Night" exchange between a reporter and George Harrison. "What do you call that haircut?" "Arthur."

    The next year Sellers was chosen to present the Beatles with their two Grammy awards, and the group responded in Goonish gibberish-French. Sellers himself had a novelty hit with a rendition of "A Hard Day's Night" in the spot-on, spat-out manner of the "Winter of our discontent" oration from "Richard III" as memorably declaimed by Laurence Olivier. The flip side was "She Loves You," delivered by Sellers' Dr. Strangelove character. The producer: George Martin.
