    This beat is just so awesome.


    This beat still hits hard.


    To this day, I still love the cutting.


    Ummm... I wasn't a DJ yet, but I pretended to be on my ancient beltdrive record player. I was stylin'!

    I bought them at a shop in San Diego during the summer of 1995. I've never looked back. Still spinning underground house, techno, breaks, and hardcore after all these years. Underground forever \nn/

    “Underground forever” indeed! The stuff they are putting out today, trying to make it mainstream, is killing my ears! Lol
    It sounds like want to be top 40 trash. But, I guess if we didn’t have that, we wouldn’t know that underground is way better! IMHO

    My first ever record was Inner City's "Good Life". It was a single and I've been hooked with records since. It's also when I started to DJ.

    I've had a collection of 45s & 78s for as long as I can remember. I do remember the first new record I ever bought.
    I saw it at the local five and dime. (Woolworths?)

    The Ventures' Batman Theme album released in 1966.

    It took what seemed like months to save up enough for it. (I'd ask my mom for money to buy candy & not buy candy.) But was probably weeks, not months. I probably bought it around 1968 or 1969. Because I was only 4 years old in 1966 and wouldn't have been able to read "Batman Theme".

There were usually about six or so records in the pack, but you could only see the ones on the outside... the middle ones were a mystery. Some turned out to be good, and others not so much. We had a blast playing them though, and if they were REALLY bad, we used ‘em for target practice.
    I forgot about that. They also sold comic-books (minus the front cover) that way. My parents had a thrift shop so the records that I didn't like I gave to them to sell in the store. The comic-books went into the trash because nobody wants a used comic-book that's missing the front cover.

    There were also cutout LPs usually 10 LPs for a dollar. They had a hole or a bandsaw cut in the corner or the corner was cut off. So stores could not return them for credit.
