I was helping someone move and from their basement I pulled out a milk crate full (maybe 25-30) of 70's vinyl records. Things like Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club, Woodstock 3 LP Set, Casino, and a bunch of other stuff from that time period.

Now I have them just sitting here. I put a few on ebay, but they didn't sell.

So, I'm wondering if anyone here knows what I can do with them?

So you stole your friend's records?

If eBay doesn't work out, start your own collection and find a record player.

Solution: send them all to me.

I'll take the lot of them for $3.50. If I had a bigger space I'd have a serious record collection and a set-up to enjoy them. As it is though, I just have to deal with my current PC set up and the 1.5 TB hdd dedicated to music.

If anyone's interested here, I'd put up a list of the contents.

Melt them down and make your own vinyl Batman suit?

I've got a huge collection of LPs from my college days back in the 70's Still have all of my old components too. I raised my kids on 70's rock like Frank Zappa, Peter Gabriel-era Genesis, David Bowie, The Tubes, etc. Every now and then, a tune would come to mind and I'd dig out an old LP and treat the wife and kids to a glimpse into my past.

I've hooked my Sony direct-drive turntable w/ Stanton cartridge and elliptical stylus through my Soundcraftsman Preamp/Equalizer to my computer and rip the music to high-bitrate MP3s using the Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) audio editor.

I'd take a look through the albums and see if anything piques your interest and see if you can do some ripping. Also, if any of the album covers have that awesome 70's artwork look to them, head out to your local craft store (Micheal's, Joanne's) and get some LP-sized picture frames. I gave my Ziggy Stardust album in a frame to my oldest daughter and she loves it!

I love how much that sentence sounds like something you'd hear on Star Trek TNG, yet it's all real stuff.

My father and I decided to put all his old LP covers up on the wall in the garage. They really did have some truly amazing art on covers, and they are a nice size and print quality instead of the stuff you see on cd cases now a days.

I should snap a picture, they really go great with the topless stripper posters. ;)
