Everman on Hardy Street is the bigger of the two independently-owned CD shop. Wait, did I say CD? Everyman reduced the classical music section to nothing, and brought back a tiny (used) LP Record section. I spent half an hour browsing, and almost bought a couple at between NZ$6 and NZ$12, (we still have Ben's turntable hooked up to the system), but in the end I didn't because I couldn't be bothered thinking about turning the record over.
As a small I kid, I could drop the needle on the exact position I intended in the middle of any song, which was something of a family party trick. Amazingly, in retrospect, my parents let me do it on any of my records.
Looking at the names of the bands at Everyman, I was surprised how recently LPs went out and and CDs came in. Album covers themselves were art way back, and they were fun to see again, also.
So, how many of you never bought an LP record in their lives? How many remember the days when DJ meant something quite different?
