johnny was a rockin, goin' round and round
An almost literal spin off from the recent tidying of the garage was the unearthing of an old record player that can be hooked up to a computer.
There were also some boxes of 45rpm vinyl singles, which look as if they are mainly still spinnable
I decided to try copying a few of the labels onto a camera and then uploading them against tracks in iTunes, to get the old style label to pop up when the track plays.
There’s some old gold amongst it with well known Beatles and Rolling Stones tracks nestling alongside the Captain Beefheart, Incredible String Band and Roy Harper.
