From your post I guess you're looking for 33-1/3 LPs, though. Thrift stores and yard sales are a great place to find gems on the cheap. We have to hunt a little more for old 78s, though...
Yeah probably end up getting most 33-1/3s but just to get away from the digital. I think it'd be cool to just get home from work and put a record on - sounds so relaxing even if it happens to be upbeat music. Would be cool for when I have a family and stuff - blow my kids minds.
