As a bass player and vinyl lover myself, this is a real treat for me

    Hi again.

    Yesterday, I was talking to an old bass player, a very good friend of mine, and he mentioned that he has instructional material from Carol Kaye in vinyl format. Since he doesn't have a turntable, I asked him if would like me to transfer those LPs to digital format. He said yes and, since he can't play the LPs, he told me that I can keep them! He gave them to me this morning, including the accompanying books (I guess I must scan them):




    The records are very noisy, so I'm going to clean them with wood glue before transferring them to digital. The guy told me that he has more CK LPs, but couldn't find them. When he does, they will be added to my record collection. :cool: :hyper:

    I never thought of using wood glue to clean the grooves of a record. Brilliant! So I did a quick Google. I did notice that most of the Google hits and YouTube videos specified one particular glue: Titebond II.

    About 12 years ago I found a piece of furniture on the side of the road. I stopped and opened it up and found over 1,000 vinyl albums. Count Basie, Louis Armstrong and many others. I took it all. A few months ago, I took out my record player and started listening to them. My wife heard what I was playing and said that we should listen to that type of music more often.
