Although I still own all of The Beatles UK LP/single/EP releases (and most American imports) on vinyl, and all the solo/post Beatles albums (plus a few singles) I no longer have the means to play them. In fact some have never been played, I bought them long after I had parted with my record deck (yes, I know....). They are currently filed away in protective dustsleeves at the back of a cupboard in chronological release order, much to my wife's bemusement. Once in a blue moon I fish out the Let It Be box just to leaf through the book, which is still in immaculate condition.
I was always useless with record players anyway. I never did understand how people played records "backwards" without breaking the machine. My turntable went in one direction at a choice of three speeds, 33 & 1/3, 45 or 78 rpm. I recall my mum having an old Connie Francis LP which was really heavy and the vinyl seemed way thicker than any of the other records.
