What an awesome dad you have.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

They are nice heavyweight vinyl garunteed to be sturdy!! I like this copy more than the original due to weight and packaging more durable.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

They're standard 140g, not 180.

Very happy for you...

but please... 'records', they're called 'records'... or if you like, 'LPs'.... this whole recent trend of calling them 'vinyls' is just .... weird..... they are made of vinyl... they are called 'records'...

when CDs were the thing, we said 'check out this new CD I got', not 'check out this new polycarbonate plastic I got!'

lol

Vinyl has been used ever since I've been collecting as a kid and that was quite some time ago. It's almost universally used in stores as well as online. It's definitely not a new thing.

Er, what?

Yeah, I've been collecting records - made of vinyl - for around 25 years.

My point was that this new fad of calling them 'vinyls' that the generation that is just coming of age seems to use to describe 'records' is a weird one.

I've been buying RECORDS for just about 40 years now, and it's ALWAYS been "records" and NEVER "vinyls" (and certainly never "vinyl's" - no need for a possessive appostrophe when speaking of plurals). I've only first heard "vinyls" used in this context for the first time about five years ago.

I THANK you, sir.... my point exactly... made in an even clearer fashion than my own comments.

Your Pops did the dang thang with dat gift!!! Although I was raised on vinyl, I'm not a big vinyl collector. All my original vinyl are stored for safe keeping. But, I gotta give props to a Pops who knows what kind of gift to give!

Uh, no. I bought them at various points in the 80s and early 90s. lol I DID get Around The World In A Day on my brother's birthday (May 6) in '85. I remember that one well, as we went to Crazy Eddie in New Jersey so he could get a computer (an Amiga, if I'm not mistaken), and my 14-year-old self got all excited about seeing the new Prince album. I begged my mom to get it for me since Steve was getting the computer and all... Long story short, I got it and spent the hour-plus car ride home poring over the lyrics, wondering just what it would sound like (at this point, not ever Raspberry Beret had been released as a single or video, so the whole thing was brand new to me). Of course, that album became the soundtrack of the summer for me (along with The Power Of Love by Huey Lewis & The News, but I digress...)

If I wanted to be cute, I'd say that it might not be an appropriate present as I don't know the OP's age, but the honest truth is that I don't know WHAT the hell happened to my Dirty Mind album. I will have to find a replacemnt. confused
