Seems like I had a couple records when I was in the 8-10 year old range (late 70's). The only one I can remember is Styx. Seems like it might have been the Grand Illusion. It was a gift because I didn't have any money until the 80's and at that time I was buying tapes. Never had an 8-track of my own.
even worse for me. it was the late '50's and i bought some 45's. still have a bunch of old albums on vinyl. i'd like to find a place to sell them.
Had those too before the 8 track days Steve. Don't know what I did with the old 45's. Still have a lot of old albums on vinyl along with the top of the line turntable to play them. My 26 year old son's laid claim to it all when I decide he's worthy.
