Yes, I still have them and the 45s too. I have copied the favorites onto CDs or mp3s for my players. They sound good but I know they are copied from records and I can hear that static sound in them but I don't think most people notice that. I actually like the static sound because it reminds me of the treasured days of my youth when those records were almost all I had to my name and I loved that music so much. Even though I have copies to actually listen to, I do have a record player but rarely play the actual records. My grandson cried when I showed him one playing when he was three. He was scared of it, I think!

Yes, have some from the 1950's, '60's, and onward, first albums of country music singers, old 78's from country singers, and a few Beatle's albums, plus Elvis and so on, the covers are what is great!! Have a turntable, but want a new one, plus a cassette player to play the great cassettes. Hate CD's, sound is not "full" enough.
No, I had some but don't know what happened to them.

My husband and I kept all of our old albums from the 70's forward and our parents gave us their albums. I received a turntable for Christmas a couple of years ago and my son (21) loves some of our old stuff! Brings back good memories!

I never had any records of my own, but I have bought a few over the years just because they were decorative or interesting. Most of those are tango albums.
I am still hanging on to handful of my favorite cassette tapes--maybe 8 or so, and about 20 of my favorite physical CDs.
I have always loved vinyl and had a pretty good collection going at one point, along with a great turntable. I always liked the "super sized" artwork on LPs.
When the economy went south, I decided that having the extra money in savings was worth more to me than the collection was, so I put the really collectible ones up on eBay one at a time, and then took the rest to a local record store and sold them as a lot. I sold the turntable on craigslist to a local guy who about fell over himself getting to my house before I sold it to someone else. I think I got around $2,000 total for everything. I know there were a few in there that I most likely could never find again for a reasonable price, but I still have CDs of just about all of them. I do still have a box of my dad's albums--Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, etc.
My son couldn't figure vinyl out either until I put one on the turntable and gave him the headphones....he gets it now, I think.

Yes, I have 70-90's stuff. My kids are in high school marching band and they are playing Talking Heads music this year. I was able to show them the album.. it was cool but made me feel old...lol Wish I still had a turntable. I'm going to make that a goal for a weight loss reward for myself ;-)

I have a couple of thousand along with 3 Quality turntables. There isn't a cd or player that can reproduce the sound of good vinyl.

They seem to be coming back into fashion. I was recently in an electronics shop and they had a really huge selection of turntables and vinyl LPs. I laughed to see Fleetwood Mac Rumours (the first album I ever bought, when i was about.. twelve) alongside Eminem (Eminem is releasing on vinyl?!).
Probably have at least 200 LPs that my hubby refuses to part with! I'd love to declutter, but I've come to the conclusion that the only way I'll be successful is if the first item I get rid of is hubby!

No, I got rid of my LPs and 45s years ago... I do have lots of cassettes still, and lots of CDs.

Just sold them off when I decided I wanted to live without things I don't use. De-clutter. I had the Beatles White Album and about 50 other albums from different artists, yes I'm that old. All scratched dragging them to college and using a lot. Saw a cool looking turn table that they are now selling for albums but I wanted to get rid of things and not collect more so I talked myself out of buying it.
